From the Hipster Manifesto:

"While we condemn any overt discrimination against people of color, we don’t really want to have anything to do with them (unless they happen to be hipsters, like us), hence our aversion to buses and our unwillingness to cross Troost and certainly Prospect. It’s all good and well to talk equality, but really, people! We are, of course, willing to use racism as a tool against any and all of our opponents. If you don’t like marathons, streetcars, and higher taxes for things we want, you’re a racist, in other words. See how well that works? If you don’t like it, you can always move to some Ku Klux Klan enclave in Utah or wherever."

Twenty dollars to be told about the "damaging effects of racial covenants". The end of these restrictions marked the beginning of the transformation of this country's (once) great cities into Third World shit-holes of Black crime and dysfunction. Typical Jew Bullshit.
