Posted in Random by yoshi on September 1, 2009

*disclaimer: i don’t participate in calling out the white man, but this was just too damn funny not to share!!!!

i got this awesome email with “random thoughts by people our age” from my girl em, and one of the thoughts read:

I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option.

so then i get an IM from my co-worker with this image, look VERY closely….:

    This is great-but as a white guy in NYC you are missing some key routes.

    First of all I dont think we’d take the subway to the airport. Cab, LIRR, Airtran. Then of course you’re missing the 7 to Shea, R to Bay Ridge, Q, B to Brighton w/ stops starting at Ave M.

    Love this! AND…. If you shouldn’t live where you’re living according to the map… you’re most certainly a gentrifier.
