What is being suggested is that how can a black feel sorry for a white?
In Maycomb society, blacks are the lowest level in the social hierachy. They are seen as immoral, poor, inferior, lazy, deprived of all education, uncivilised, objects of strange sexual suspiscion.
Thus, the whites react strongly as they feel they are in no position to sympathize the whites when they are already in such a lowly position
I agree with cheers.
