Although Ama­zon’s same-day ser­vice is avail­able to most ad­dresses in Bos­ton and reaches al­most to New Hamp­shire, the cen­trally lo­cated neigh­bor­hood of Roxbury, with a pop­u­la­tion that’s about 59 per­cent black and 15 per­cent white, is ex­cluded. The pre­dom­i­nantly white res­i­dents of the ZIP codes that bor­der Roxbury on all sides are el­i­gi­ble for the ser­vice. Ama­zon’s Ber­man calls Roxbury “an anom­aly.”
