Black Enterprise Magazine January-March 2019 Issue

A notice warning residents about black teenagers posted at a southwest Houston apartment complex this week outraged some community members, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The notice, which was posted in the Rock Springs Apartments laundry room, read, “We ask you to please contact the office immediately every time you see teenagers or adolescents of Afro-American race or any other suspicious people in the property.”
