Here we go again

In this code racial steering ad for an apartment in Flatbush, this broker made sure to mention all the usual suspects of a racial steering subtle ad that has been popping all over Faltbush lately. Of course the usual and perennial favorite Vox Pop is mention as well as Connecticut muffing, trailer park furniture and the great new Food Coop. Why no mention of Fisher Men Coves Jamaican restaurant, mana's soul food or even Cinco de mayo Mexican? I wonder who they are targeting for this particular apartment? hmm Excerpt of the ad:

DITMAS PARK/DORCHESTER RD: Email this ad or between 11AM and 7PM call broker directly at 646.642.4860. See it all weekend and every week day - evenings, too!

Steps to Q train subway at Cortelyou Rd, and community amenities that include Flatbush Food Co-op, VoxPop Cafe, Trailer Park Barn Furniture, Connecticut Muffin,a specialty wine merchant, and Zagat-rated The Farm on Adderley restaurant that's a brunch, lunch and happy hour favorite!

Let this inviting residential tree-lined location become your home. Classic prewar elevator building is quiet and well kept.

Cats ok. ZERO DOGS.

Racist to the core, somehow they forget to mention Belle & Maxie too. It was the first, most progressive boutique to open on Cortelyou before all of the others. Maybe it's because the owner is Latino and runs a successful business.

But I shop there all the time, the owner is super friendly with great customer service and a great selection of wood toys.
