In the trial chapters we see that racism and prejudice of the townspeople come violently and shockingly into the open.

No, it isn't possible for Tom to receive a fair trial based upon the fact he is living in a town permeated with racism and being judged by a jury of his "white" peers. Had the trial been held elsewhere, it might be possible things would have been different, but I highly doubt it. Tom was a black man accused of raping a white woman. Do you think a different location would have made a difference>
