So I saw this Chinese restaurant on Cortelyou road and Rugby Road called New Neighbor. They had a new neighbor special and a brand new cheesy OPEN sign. New furniture. I've been to this take out place before our fair skin brethren started to move in. It was pretty nasty I must say. I remember this Chinese take out place smelled like burnt used oil. The rice was never fresh and the prices were allot cheaper. Fast forward to the new Ditmas park that we have all grown to love *smirk* I decided to go back. I must admit this was very impressive. I mean I've lived in Flatbush going on 20 years. The place didn't smell like cheap oil this time. The rice was actually fresh! I've never seen cheap Chinese food take out places going out of there way to look presentable. I guess all you need are a few lighter skin privilege people to be treated like a human being. The irony of this is that with the higher prices and better service, the majority of the customers were still of the darker persuasion. You gotta love this brand of racism.
