‘exclusively for white people’ stickers was a hoax intended to perpetuate racial tension

Via Business Insider:

An activist lawyer in Austin admitted in a Facebook rant that he was behind the “exclusively for white people” stickers that appeared on store windows across the city last week, Mediaite reported.

Adam Reposa, who calls himself the ‘DWI Badass’ on his website, wrote on his Facebook page that he vandalized storefronts in an attempt to get people to care about gentrification.

“I never imagined it would be this easy,” he wrote on March 19. “Remember it is valuable to see just what giving a f*ck does to people as well as what not giving a f*ck does for people.”

Adam and his friends posted on his Facebook wall mocking Austin authorities, saying the prank’s cultural statement went “way over their heads.”
