The city government should acknowledge that the African American community is being denigrated. The city needs to accept our culture. —Walter Smith, Substance Abuse Counselor, Roxbury
More businesses need to help the community and give back. It doesn’t seem like the community benefits from the businesses here. —Unique Harris, Unemployed, Roxbury
Affordable housing. I feel like the community is changing and it’s become less diverse because there’s no affordable housing. People are moving to Brockton, Lynn, Attleboro. —Shantae White, Intern, Roxbury
Do more for the homeless. Once they closed the Long Island shelter, they should have had a plan in place. Our kids go to school and see homeless people and drug addicts. I’ve never seen so many here. — Lavette McAllister, Retired, South End
More peace rallies. We’ve got to get the word out. People are trying to increase racism here. — Donna Adams, Retired, Roxbury
More parks and places for kids to play. All the empty lots are being replaced by buildings. Kids need more space. — Arthur Frederick, Security, Dorchester
