Would a white or Asian participant, for example, intrude on the atmosphere of a store where there are mostly black clientele?

Black business owners in Pittsburgh said that they were used to all kinds of customers coming in and surmised that if there were discomfort, it would be on the part of a white person. (This proved to be the case.)
