Very convenient to blame it on them.
You should see what's happened to areas of Norcross, Lawrenceville, Marietta and Smyrna in the Atlanta metro area. Once solidly middle-class neighborhoods have become absolute slums. These areas weren't 'ALREADY trashed', but they certainly are NOW.

You should see what happened to areas of New York. Once solidly middle-class neighborhoods became absolute slums. These areas weren't 'ALREADY trashed', but they were certainly. When the European immigrants arrived.

What happened to all the solidly middle-class people? Did they hold their ground and keep up their property or did they take off when they saw all the new brown faces?

They sold out before they lost even MORE of their home's value.

I don't blame them, either.
