Roving Camera 2-6-19: Do you think black people have negative attitudes toward whites?

Yes. It’s probably at an all-time high. We have a president who doesn’t care for people of color. People are blatant with their racism. — Corlis Melchior, Loan Administrator, Roxbury
I think black people are very forgiving in their attitudes toward whites. Look at the people who forgave Dylan Roof. — Christian Williams, Attorney, Roxbury
I think it depends on where you are. In Boston right now there’s a lot of resentment against whites because of gentrification. — Dale Peters, Community Health Worker, South End
For the most part, I don’t think they do. Not like white people have toward blacks. — James, Welder, South End
I would say so. Whether it’s conscious or unconscious. As a people, we have been oppressed for centuries. — Khalida Smalls, Organizer, Jamaica Plain
Yes. White people enslaved black folks. — Roger Omar Kenner, Student, Boston
