Racist Real Estate Agents at it again

In this Craiglist ad for an apartment in Flatbush, This person blatantly violates fair housing laws by posting that they don't want anyone with housing court issues to apply. Here is an excerpt:

To schedule a viewing call (212)-358-5770

Must earn 41k if one tenant 51k combined if two tenants
No Housing Court Issues
No Bankruptcy History for at least 6 years
No Criminal History

SORRY NO section 8 or other programs accepted for this particular apartment

One has to wonder. Is this the norm for apartment ads. Do these types of ads appear for apartments in Manhattan or park slope? I love how he puts no section 8 for this particular apartment. Are there any other particular apartments that he/she would accept Section 8? As you can see the phone number is posted. Maybe the good people in flatbush should call that number and ask why this brokerage feel so comfortable violated the rights of others?
