No wonder white people don’t want to become a minority….minorities sure aren’t treated very well.
(CNN) — Ronica Copes and her family have lived in their Long Island home for almost two years. But just last week, they received the most unwelcoming letter in the mail:
“Attn: African-American family,” the letter said in all caps. “Lindenhurst is 84% white population. You don’t belong here!!!”
It’s almost laughable, if it weren’t so painful.
“Sooooo, I’m checking my mail and when I come across this I can’t help but laugh … wait, it’s not funny though,” Copes wrote on Facebook. “Unbelievable but then it’s not … our daily reality, I’ve just never seen it in this form.”
The anonymous letter tells the Copeses to “please leave Lindenhurst as soon as you can.”
“It will be better for all of us,” the writer said. “Find the town where there are more people like you.”
Copes was floored, saying she had a good rapport with her neighbors in the New York community.
“We were really surprised,” she told CNN affiliate WPIX. “We just didn’t think that this type of thing would happen this late in the game.”
This isn’t 1955. It’s 2015.
And this crap is still going on.
Notice, as well, that this didn’t take place in Alabama, where the media could pass it off as the last throes of Southern Racism. This happened on Long Island. In New York.
Welcome to the post-racial society.
