Who was Karl Lindner in A Raisin in the Sun?
Karl Lindner was a representative from the Clybourne Park Improvement Association, and he went to the Younger's apartment to tell them that he'll offer them more money for the house than they spent because the neighborhood doesn't like the fact that they're black, they're scared of them.

Mama gave the rest of the $10,000 from the insurance money, after making the down payment on a house in a white neighborhood, to Walter Lee. That was $6,500.
A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansbury, takes place in a small, battered apartment in an all-black neighborhood in Chicago. The apartment the Younger family- the protagonis…ts- live in is "won over by weariness" and "would be comfortable and well-ordered if it were not for a number of indesctructable contradictions to this state of being." The Youngers, especially Ruth, are desperate to move from their shoddy and over-stuffed apartment to a real house, but a variety of factors limit their ability to do so. Thusly, the living conditions are, indeed, livable, but not enjoyable. The Youngers mostly just survive in their home, cramped, overwhelmed, and down-trodden, their dreams quashed in reality.
Ruth faints because she is pregnant and works a lot but doesn't get enough sleep, she also doesn't eat enough either.
The "welcoming committee" is not welcoming, they will pay the Youngers not to move in.

She dislikes him because of his assimilationist tendencies and his lack of respe…ct for his African heritage.

Travis sleeps on the couch in the living room.
Mr. Lindner offers the Younger family some monetary compensation so that the Youngers do not move into the new, white neighborhood.
