    Story highlights
    (CNN)Someone is posting stickers that say "exclusively for white people" on businesses in the Texas capital of Austin. And the mayor is not amused.

    "This is an appalling and offensive display of ignorance in our city," Mayor Steve Adler said in a statement. "Our city is a place where respect for all people is a part of our spirit and soul. We will keep it that way."

    In addition to the disparaging words, the stickers are using the city's logo, giving the impression that they represent Austin.

    They do not, the mayor said.

    "The stickers were neither produced nor knowingly displayed by the businesses and were removed by their employees when discovered this morning," he said Wednesday.

    The stickers were placed between midnight Tuesday and 7 a.m. Wednesday. It's unclear how many businesses were affected, but those that were targeted took them off, officials said.

    City officials, businesses and the police are on the lookout for the culprits.

    "This type of cowardly and hateful act will not be tolerated in this city," City Manager Marc Ott said.

    My attitude is great lets play this game, these businesses and black people will lose. Trust me more whites are spending disposable income then blacks.
    That's what the mayor should of said, go for it but the only people spending money is Austin is white hipsters so dont piss them off

    "Sponsored by the City of Austin Contemporary Partition and Restoration Program"

    WTF?! Probably a local Klan group.

    I hate to admit this, but I agree with you on this one. Likely some Ph.D. candidates from UT-Austin making an "ironic" statement or doing "performance art" or some such.

    I ran into my fair share of caucasian racists in Texas, and Austin is by far the least racist city in the state.

    I doubt that sticker was even made as a gag, since it lacks any creativity or humor. I would bet a good chunk of my money that it was made by
    some kind of radical activist wannabe to try to stir up controversy. This city is certainly full of enough weirdos that would do that.

    That over the top sticker screams fake.

    Probably that but also possibly some shit-stirring asshole troll getting off on the reaction he's created.

    They would of had better results if they driven to Houston or Dallas to put them up, but they blew their small pay check on vintage clothing, and San Antonio has no white people.

    Many of the recent college racist flyers and racist graffiti have been done by blacks and whiny lefty rich kids.

    Right. Because there's no way that racism exists on the right. Or are you saying that the right's racists would never do something so blatantly racist and would rather hide behind code words.
