Surprise, surprise!

It turns out that the person who has been posting “whites only” stickers around Austin, Texas is actually a liberal “social justice warrior” looking to bring attention to the racism of whites.

For days no one knew who had posted them and why could only be speculated.

The answer has been solved today: the stickers were posted by Austin lawyer Adam Reposa who did it to point out the “gentrification” of Austin and the displacement of minorities.

“They’re getting pushed out, and pretty quick. This area of town is turning into white’s only,” Reposa said in a video uploaded to YouTube. “Not by law like it used to be, and everyone’s going to jump on, ‘that’s racist!’ ‘that’s racist!’ Man, this town, the way shit works is racist!


A rage-filled man.

Would he make the same comments if it was turning into a blacks only area?

Many neighborhoods, as they are "revitalized" by those acting out of some sense of "liberal guilt," tend to force out those who are economically non-viable. Rising property values and rising rents mean that the "downtrodden" who have been neglected for years can no longer afford the newly prosperous conditions.

This is happening in Cincinnati, in the traditionally minority neighborhood of Over the Rhine, where gentrification has completely remade the demographics. The original residents were not "lifted" by the changes, but displaced.

It's a very sad truth that those who live in blighted neighborhoods do so not because they want to, but because they can afford to. "Revitalizing" the neighborhood really doesn't help these people. Education, job training, and life-skills classes would be a much better use of money - IF helping the poor was really your goal.

If you refuse to stay in school to get a proper education, no amount of "help" is going to change anything.
