Who is blamed for tresspassing on the Radley place? What does this blame reveal about the setting (time and place) of the novel?

Since his own son was locked in the house, Mr. Radley blamed a Negro for trespassing. Blacks were frequently blamed, by whites, to be the nondescript culprit hiding in the shadows of their property at night. This of course was a bigoted assumption but that was the mindset of many whites in the South during this time.
