When your ethnically diverse neighborhood gets hip, by Mickey Z

White male yuppie in his early 30s jogging on the sidewalk past a bodega, a mosque, and Starbuck's dutifully stops at red light and bounces in place (can't let that heart rate drop) Across the street Pakistani boy no more than six waits for the light to change holding the barely visible hand of his veiled, shrouded mother as he giggles uncontrollably at the sight of a bouncing white male yuppie * [Ask me how hard it was to find a photo of a smiling Palestinian Boy, and how easy it was to find a white man jogging...]

James Baldwin" Urban Renewal is Negro Removal.
