I agree with the other posters. Calpurnia was treated as an equal because Atticus had risen above racism. He did not believe that people should be judged based on the color of their skin or the money that they had in their pockets. He treated all people with the same degree of respect and humanity. This was something that he wanted his children to learn as well. He acted the way that he did toward Calpurnia so that his children would, in turn, learn to look beyond the surface and see the person who lies beneath. In all relationships and in all dealings with other people, this was Atticus’ manner.
