Interview with Albert Raby
QUESTION 27
INTERVIEWER:

Did the riots reinforce the stereotypes of Black people being violent?

ALBERT RABY:

The riots didn't, didn't, I think, influence people's attitudes towards Blacks as being violent. Ah, what they did was, I think, make people feel that the problems were insoluble, one, two, that, that, that that was not a solution and that leadership that couldn't prevent riots or couldn't influence the community, maybe had no relevance or credence anyplace else.
