Signs claiming "racist quotas" cause furor

August 09, 1998
Signs celebrating New York's "battles for justice" have created a furor of their own because one of them accuses the Housing Authority of using "racist quotas" in Brooklyn to favor Hasidic Jews.
     The sign in the Williamsburg section has sparked several complaints and has twice been yanked down by city officials.
     Its status is up in the air as city officials try to persuade the sponsor, New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, to tone down the language.
