Interview with Rosemary Porter
QUESTION 30
SHEILA C. BERNARD:

So why wasn't it possible then?

ROSEMARY PORTER:

Well, you know it wasn't possible then, and I can't say that feeling has much changed to this day, because people still do not know each other, OK? And panic peddlers and real estate people are never going to let it happen. Because that is not the game. The name of the game is money, it's profit, it's profit for real estates. You think they care about Black people? You think they care about middle class Whites? Be serious. Be serious. How many houses in how many blocks can we turn. And how can we tell the story, "Get your money before the Blacks move in because, hm, then you won't even get half of what your house is worth today." That's the name of the game.
