'Ghetto Tracker' App Helps Rich Avoid Poor

Thinkstock

On Twitter, responses to the app included:

"ghettotracker dot com just Google Street View for White ppl" - @desusnice

"ghettotracker.com  seems like a great way to erase humanity of black communities. Then comes inferior services, displacement, bulldozers" -@grenadine

But although the app has been renamed Good Part of Town, the public's opinion that it is a racist, classist app helping the rich avoid the poor has not changed.
