I don't trust either of them, but especially Clifford's problematic self is a whole other problem.

Oh please! If the online/print marketing materials for Avalon had ONLY black people in it, an uglier response would have been invoked. In fact, we all know that could NEVER happen. Why? Because the images are not just randomly selected.

What it must be like to live in a world where you have the privilege of being oblivious to such things.

They're trying to promote a new development.

Probably the same thing that is meant by the New South? A place where everyone can live? Atlanta isn't just for one group of people. It is for everyone.

Not sure why some people are getting so upset at the backlash at the brochure. A lot of people are getting gentrified out and struggle to find affordable housing.

No disrespect to your view, but there is an alternate view of gentrification that exists out there.

I mean you see it in every other post on here now without folks actually coming out and saying it.
This I stock photography and quickly glancing at the photo it has enough variation that you'd have to go out of your way looking for a person of color to realize that there aren't any.

The quote above and this controversy along with the last few years of how the term racism is being applied has led me to conclude that:

The number one perpetuator of race as a dividing factor is the black community itself.

I don't believe that white children are or taught to see race as a issue at all.

And I do believe that minority children are at least subconsciously taught to be wary of white people who probably are looking down on them.

If this was brochure was about a project in a gay neighborhood and the photo showed breeder couples with baby strollers I probably wouldn't notice the irony.

The above quoted whining statement is BS, if the neighborhoods were so special or valued they should have maintained them better.

It doesn't cost anything to pick up all the trash strewn along Boulevard or MLK all the way to Six Flags.

And property owners weren't forced to sell to the evil gentrifiers anyway.

Just another excuse to complain and blame everyone else even when there's no problem at all.

You might want to pump your brakes on that assumption because that's is far from the truth. Unless you are black or a person who actually socializes with a large multitude of black people on a daily basis on a professional and personal level then you cannot make that assumption at all.

This is honestly the funniest thing i've seen all day. Especially the bolded ones. No more commentary is even needed from you. The bolded points alone show what type of person you are. I'm going to guess you and ronricks would be really good friends.
