Post-Racial Yet?

10Mar09

This is a story about a woman who wrote a

handwritten sign on a fence on her property saying, “I rent three bedrooms [at her address to] white people Niagara Falls.

This is such a problem. We are clearly not living in any kind of post-racial society when racialized screening like this is still occurring. It also reminds me of the discussion of white folks trying to maintain all-white communities at any cost and the ever-famous “white flight.” It was saddening to see that this type of explicit racism is still happening but not completely shocking.
