    I mean if it wasn't actually put up by the business it's pretty clear that it wasn't actually the act of a white supremacy group.

    Rather, a statement about gentrification. Which is a worthy topic of discussion, but this is a silly way to go about it.

    I don't think anyone implied it was black people doing it. I'd actually say white hipsters are more likely.

    That's not that obvious. Just as black Americans could have committed the provocation, to stir trouble, so could whites. It's interesting that these are what appear to be to me anyway, professionally produced stickers, maybe not. If they were, it should be fairly easy to find out what printers made them. And if so, what printer would accept such an order, lol.

    Probably just someone trolling the city. Successfully, I might add.

    no, they appeared on certain targeted businesses that seemed to attract the gentrified crowd. The stickers were a protest of that gentrification.

    well, see, in the real world it means outside money coming in and pricing people who already live there out
