NIMBY- Not in My Back Yard- has been the motive for blocking rehab facilities and homeless shelters in neighborhoods that refuse to shoulder the burden of social service programs that might lower property values even while promoting ethical values.
America's latest NIMBY protests have reared their heads on Pennsylvania Avenue right in front of the White House. Protesters signs read: "Protect US from False Advertising!"; "It's Not Called the White House for Nothin'!; "There Are Plenty of Black 'Hoods Downtown!"
Demonstration organizer Ara Yanation said that he and his Pennsylvania Ave Neighborhood watch group were prepared to make a generous offer to the Obamas. We're sure that they would be happier living among their own kind. Look what happened when the first "black" president lived here! Can you blame us!?"
