Roving Camera 8-2-2018: Why do you think some whites harbor hostility toward blacks?

I don’t think they really do. Black people need to stop dwelling in the past and look to the future. We all should care about each other. - D. Lewis, Homemaker, Dorchester.
I think they’re envious. They want to live where we live. - Dexter Dixon, self-employed, Roxbury.
From the times we had universities in Timbuktu, we always had kings, queens and scholars. I think white people were envious of us. - Lawrence Davis, transportation worker, Roxbury.
Because they think we’re threatening. Black folks are starting to get ahead. They’d like to see us stay behind. They don’t like that we’re just as good as they are. - Marie Norman, PCA, Roxbury.
Because they look at us on the outside. They don’t see what’s inside us. They can’t see what’s inside us. They can’t see whether you have a kind heart. That’s the main ingredient of racism. - Otis Goodman, Food Service Worker, Grove Hall.
I think a lot of it has to do with Trump being in office. He’s bringing out the worst in people and now they’re more bold. - Rashele Dudley, Paralegal, Roxbury.
