    Mr Raymond is an posotive character in the is a story. Mr Raymond posotive character because he does not see anything wrong with dating a black woman. The town needed reason why he would do such a thing, so he pretends he is a drunk. He says crazy when hes drunk. Another reason is he is a nice guy. When Dill gets sick because of what he seen at the courthouse Mr Raymond gets him a drink to feel better. Thats how Mr Raymond is a posotive guy.

    Dolphus Raymond is a positive character.It is easy to say that MR.Dolphus Raymond is a un real nonracist character, because he isnt. And i guess that people are starting to suspect that.
    Also people think that he isnt racist because he is married to a African American Woman. So in order to prove that he IS aginst black people
    or that he IS racist he acts drunk ALL THE TIME so people can say'” the only reason he sleeps with her is because hes always drunk.in Chapter 20 Scot also thinks that Raymond is “Evil” according to the text.
