Photograph of "white tenants" sign
Sign with American flag "We want white tenants in our white community," directly opposite the Sojourner Truth homes, a new U.S. federal housing project in Detroit, Michigan. A riot was caused by white neighbors' attempts to prevent Negro tenants from moving in. (From: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:We_want_white_tenants.jpg)
