Mon, 12:00: Singing while black: Oakland choir threatened with ‘nuisance’ fines after tech workers enter neighborhood -... https://t.co/PrpOvW1QOs

This time I don't think "being black" has anything to do with it.

It's the exact same BS as the folks who buy cheap houses near an airport (or near Portland International Racetrack) and then start lobbying to have the source of the noise shut down.

They knew (or would have known if they'd exercised anything *close* to "due diligence" in checking out the property before buying it) about the noise. And that that may have been one of the reasons it was cheap.

But they're "special" and want to end the "nuisance" that they knew (or should have known) about when they bought the property.

It shouldn't be necessary, but assholes like this mean that we really need to pass laws that explicitly say two things:

1. that sellers have to tell you about stuff (I think most places require this already).

2. That buyers don't get to file nuisance complaints about long standing events/practices near them that they'd been informed about before they moved in.

Oh, maybe a third:

Local governments don't get to rezone to force businesses out or to allow residential areas next to hazardous businesses. Like the city that put a *school* across the street from an explosives plant!
