The Ewells are given the privilege to hunt out of season, so that the residents of the small town of Maycomb would not have to tolerate their continuous begging twenty-four hours a day for seven days a week. These two families show the respectability of hard workers or, in the Ewells case, can fill their peers with sorrow. The Cunninghams have pride, as for the Ewells, they have a natural like anarchist nature that will eventually haunt them and hurt others because of their lurid like attitude. The Cunningham's are very respected by the citizen's of Maycomb county. The Cunninghams took nothing, unless they could pay it back. Walter the youngest in the Cunningham clan was in the same class at school as Scout Finch the daughter of Atticus Finch.

The Cunninghams were a family of truthfulness, loyalty and able to carry on great responsibilities. Bob Ewell could not stand that his word was barely good enough to overcome a black African American. But as usual the Ewells were just the opposite, they did not tell the truth on a consistent basis, and it wasted a human life. It was Obvious that Tom did not do it. All of the bruises were on the right side of Mayella's body, Tom had no left arm. The same day as the Walter Cunningham incident there was another incident concerning the Ewells. The Cunninghams are given special privileges. Walter eventually ended up eating with the Finch's. The kids would basically shrivel up in the little shack that they live in and starve, if they did not have the privilege to hunt and eat the food that they kill. " A "cootie" came frantically flying out of the assumed Afro of Burris's hair, and scared the overseer of the class, Miss Caroline. For example he drowned his waffles in a lake of syrup. When the Cunninghams were wrong they admitted it, when they were right they didn't show it. They did not want to hurt anyone, they were grateful for the people that had helped them on their journey of life.
