Prejudice for Lunch in Bushwick?

@bushwickcoffee shop calls out “greedy” Jewish customers. Instagram.

My first day on the job as the new food intern at The Forward, and what news do I hear? The owner of one of my very own neighborhood spots, The Bushwick Coffee Shop, has posted a rant on Facebook and Instagram about the “greedy infiltrators” that are the Jews in Bushwick real estate.

Although the place offers a decent donut and cup of joe, it’s all been spoiled by a greasy side of anti-Semitism.

The owner has tried to clean up the ensuing mess with a series of photos of Jews who aren’t “greedily” buying Bushwick, but this Jewish Bushwick resident will be buying her future donuts at Dun-Well.
