You can't (except for the racial ones that were nullified by
law).  You can choose property with restrictions you agree
with, or property that the restrictions you don't agree with
go unenforced.  In the case of land covered by an active HOA,
they will be enforced.  For restrictions enforced by prior
property owners, unless they live next to you they are likely
to be unenforced.
