Photo of sign that reads: “NOT FOR SALE: We LIKE our home--We PRIDE our COMMUNITY--We CHERISH our DEMOCRATIC BELIEFS.

The sign was placed in front of a home in Teneck, New Jersey that was that target of blockbusting, a scheme in which relators tried to scare white homeowners into selling their property by telling them minorities were moving in the area.
