SAWB...All Growed Up

A recent AJC article touched on the whitening effect of new cities in the Atlanta area (previously known as a Black Mecca). If citihood becomes a commodity product (which appears to be the case) it will surely be marketed by Clorox as it has the power to make things whiter than they ever were.

Regarding this phenomena the article quoted one of the most popular members of the blogger community, Dunwoody's own Farmer Bob:
"Forgive me if I don't sound shocked. [...] There's an easy trap when creating a city (to say) 'We want people to look like us,' I honest to God don't think it's a conscious decision. The people who founded these cities are arrogant, rich white guys. That's who they know."
Come on now Bob, let's be fair. They're not that rich.
