According to the Salt Lake Tribune:

Eagle Mountain is a burgeoning Utah County community, full of young families, new homeowners and white people.
Lots and lots of white people.
The racial breakdown of Eagle Mountain was listed as a selling point on the Web site of home builder Bigg Homes.
The site also included this comparison among others: "Black race population percentage significantly below state average."
"Significantly below" was in bold.


Jeanetta Williams, president of the NAACP branch in Salt Lake City, described the information as "subtle discrimination," meant to encourage white people and discourage black people from buying in the area.

I know you're wondering the same thing I am: there are enough black people in Utah to staff a local NAACP branch?
