According a 2013 U.S. Census report, the average black family earned $34,958 versus the average for all races of $51,939. For the average black family living in cities, this distinction means rent prices are simply too high. Gentrification is a cycle.
Yeah a huge portion of 3rd Ward has been rebranded as “Midtown” and it hurts my heart to see landmarks from my childhood being turned into some artsy hipster restaurant.
East liberty is being rebranded as “shadyside extention”
This isn’t simply Gentrification, it’s Ethnic Cleansing. We have to stop allowing them to sanitize their atrocities through the manipulation of terms and definitions.
