Does this website really believe their stereotypical marketing strategy to sell houses is acceptable??!
I'm appalled by news that stereotypical words are being used by the site picketreport.com to describe neighborhoods to potential homebuyers. And they're not favorable.
What about this description of certain Latinos: "Ciudad Striver," which is a Hispanic family that got out of the ghetto and into "mid-scale" living.
It's no secret: statistics show Detroit is plagued with high rates of unemployment and crime, among other things. And,yes, there are Hispanic families that move from up from the inner-city into communities with higher incomes.
Perhaps picketreport.com can bypass some of these rules because they are not licensed. It's still disturbing.
