4please help with quesions fron to kill a mockingbird?

Question:On the opening page of the novel, Scout Finch says that “When enough years had gone by to enable us to look back on them, we sometimes discussed the events leading up to [Jem’s] accident.” How old do you think Scout is when she writes the story? How is the Scout who narrates the events of the story different from the Scout who experiences them?

When Scout thoughtlessly remarks on the impoverished Walter Cunningham’s bad table manners, Calpurnia takes her aside and explains: “There’s some folks who don’t eat like us…but you ain’t called on to contradict ‘em at the table when they don’t. That boy’s yo’ comp’ny and if he wants to eat up the whole table cloth you let him, you hear?” [p. 27]. What important lesson is Calpurnia imparting to Scout in this scene? How is this lesson related to the novel’s larger themes? Why is it significant that it comes, in this instance, from Calpurnia?

Answers:
She was about in her thirties when she narrates the events, and experiences them from age 6-9.

Hmm, to accept people? It relates to the larger theme of racism...I think. It's significant because it comes from her, and she's an Afro-American, a 'black'. I don't really know how to explain.^^"
