BoBo's World (Darkies Need Not Apply)

Grand Dragon edition. From Scout Prime: reports The Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center, a nonprofit civil rights organization has filed a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development against 5 websites that advertise free housing for Katrina victims. Seems they have allowed "White Only" posts and a few "No Gays" which is illegal as the sites accept paid advertising.

Here's a sampling of the 68 such postings found on 5 Web sites that offer housing to people displaced by Katrina…

"Not racist, but white only," says a Jasper, Ala., posting that offers two rooms in a mobile home.

"As a white couple, we would be looking for a white mother and baby," advises a posting from Casselbery, Fla.

"Will help white males ages 20-45," says a Baton Rouge offer.

"We would prefer a white Christian couple. Pastors are welcome," says someone from Douglasville, Ga.

"Gays and lesbians not welcome."

"We live in a redneck county here and blacks are frowned on,"
