Seperate-but-EqualYou couldn’t make this up: As we approach the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s iconic “I have a dream” speech, a New York City developer has come up with a startling new twist on separate-but-equal:

New York, like many cities, often requires developers to include a certain number of affordable units in new housing developments. Now the NYC developer of a luxury condo building has come up with an ingenious way of separating the riffraff from the high-end condo buyers: A separate-but-not-quite-equal “affordable entrance” for the peasants in the affordable units, completely separated from the main entrance to be used by the wealthy folks.

No word yet on whether the non-wealthy will be required to use separate drinking fountains or restrooms.
