The Double Standards Of Racially Exclusive Neighborhoods

A recent article in the la times shows the hypocrisy and blatant bias when it comes to racially exclusive neighborhoods. The article titled “Selfie Of White Joggers In African American Neighborhood Sets Off Debate, And Quest For Understanding” goes into how the integration and growing diversity of a black neighborhood ruins it`s historically black predominance. It also seems to imply that racial tension is justified against these new white faces and quotes Earl Hutchinson (The president of the Los Angelos Urban Policy Roundtable) who calls it “the last battleground”. Others talk about how they need to preserve their culture in this face of changing demographics.

On the other hand, if this were a white neighborhood resisting a change in demographics, social justice warriors would be marching in the streets demanding tolerance and repeating the mantra “diversity is our strength”.
