The City of New York approved a proposal by one of the largest real estate developers in the city to build in a ‘poor door’, or a separate door for residents living in affordable housing to enter their building.
'No one ever said that the goal was full integration of these populations,' David Von Spreckelsen, senior vice president at Toll Brothers, another developer specializing in luxury residencies, told The Real Deal in 2013. ‘So now you have politicians talking about that, saying how horrible those back doors are. I think it’s unfair to expect very high-income homeowners who paid a fortune to live in their building to have to be in the same boat as low-income renters, who are very fortunate to live in a new building in a great neighborhood.’
^ Are you fucking kidding me?!
wow really? what the fuck do y’all think is gonna happen if you use the same door as my poor Black ass? you think you might be forced to pay a living wage?
This sounds like a sneaky segregation/ Jim Crow reboot. How many Black & Brown folk y’all think are gonna be using that rich door instead of the “poor” one. Fuck these crackers, man.
^^^This exactly what is is. Except it’s not even “sneaky” this shit is blatant.
