Alright ya'll. I'm tired. No really I have droopy eyes. I'm going to make it short and sweet tonight. That's right I'm going to break down gentrification in a tiny blog entry. No not really. This is a topic that is very important to me. One that I am conflicted about. I'm going to introduce the subject tonight and ask some questions. Than I will revisit the topic again, during the challenge. Here is how Wikipedia defines gentrification: "Gentrification and urban gentrification denote the socio-economic, commercial, and demographic change in an urban area resulting from wealthier people buying housing property in a poor community."
So here are some of my questions:
Who is most responsible for gentrification left-leaning or right-leaning people?
Why are liberals and radicals involved in gentrification at all?
What are legitimate responses to gentrification?
What kind of solutions can communities implement to curb gentrification?
Those are my questions for y'all to ponder. My last thoughts for now are: Gentrification Sucks!
