How does Lee use details in this passage Miss Maudies view of Maycomb?

“We’re making a step – it’s just a baby step, but its a step.”

This is said bye Miss Maudie when talking about what she was thinking when waiting for Atticus to come home from the trial. This quote drives home the truly racist nature of Maycomb. Miss Maudie is saying this like its a good thing, but shouldn’t Miss Maudie be wanting big steps. Instead she is satisfied bye a small movement towords equality
