Austin-attorney-Adam-Reposa-claims-responsibility-for-White-People-Only-stickers-YouTube-800x430[su_r_sky_ad]It was a protest against increasing gentrification in the college town capitol of Texas:

An attorney in Austin, Texas appears to claim responsibility for targeting local businesses with stickers saying there were “exclusively for white people,” KXAN-TV reported.

“Why I did it is pretty obvious,” a shirtless Adam Reposa says in a video posted online. “Because it would be obvious that even though people know the real problem — and the real problem is that people without money are getting f*cked. They’re getting pushed out, and pretty quick. This area of town is turning into whites only.”
The stickers were first spotted on five businesses on the city’s east side, bearing the message, “Maximum of 5 colored customers, colored [back of house] staff accepted” and a copy of the city’s logo.

They were quickly condemned by both local officials and state Rep. Dawnna Dukes (D), who called the stickers a “tasteless” joke. In the video, Reposa suggests that he intended to provoke this type of response.

“I knew I could just bait all of y’all into being as stupid as you are,” he says. “Just allowing the issue to be framed in the most simple way — ‘Oh, he said an offensive term. Let’s not worry about the actual condition of the way things are, let’s worry about an offensive term.’”

        I’m guessing that question should have been qualified.

    Because everyone knows that financial success and affluence is something that only white people can attain. Right? (sarcasm mine)

    No surprise, the stickers were the work of an ant-white bigot.
