See the difference here is where leftist revolutions in other nations have only faced unmotivated government forces, in the US you will face the government and millions of gun owning, self-reliant, fed-up REAL Americans who have been itching for YEARS to cleanse letism from our shores once and for all.

Go ahead and fire the first shot, I implore you. I promise you won't fire the last and that the time between the two will be much, much shorter than you ever imagined.

I am repeatedly shocked at the awful racist rhetoric on this forum. And this particular case, I'm referring to white people literally being called 'crackers' and 'the devil' in this thread. If someone posted something of that sort about another race, there would be a major uproar. I'm a New York native, and I don't care for trust fund transplants myself, but this hate is just absurd and uncalled for.

This forum is a JOKE to me at this point. You go on on city data forums for other cities and people are discussing relevant things like neighborhoods, infrastructure, local governance, etc etc. Over here it's nothing but housing lotteries, white vs black, Puerto Rican vs Dominican, constant derogatory comments about Jews, Russians and every other nationality under the sun etc etc. It's absolutely pathetic and utterly POINTLESS. Where are the mods?

To the OP, you seem divided. Is it the money that bothers you, or the skin color?
I've been looking at apartments all over the area. I'm not rich and my family is bi-racial. I don't receive financial assistance but I do keep a neat and tidy domicile.
Where do I go? (No pun intended)

The streets have become a military occupation by police protecting the yuppies, that is very similar to the West Bank in Palestine., or Baghdad. and yuppies are smug, pompous, arrogant pieces of trash who walk around like they own us hood people as slaves all high on the white privilege horse. The hood people typcially are native New Yorkers however and are the strongest and most resilient people you will ever meet in the world.

I wouldn't care if 100% of these gentrifiers and yuppies stayed the fuuuck out of my hood. My hood and others like it are already homes to diverse populations of black people, immigrants, and working class whites who have deep roots here.


I just read the title of this...even though I saw it yesterday...and I am screaming!!! lmbo!!!!!

sir! Where have you been...as african americans, we've been subjected to all manner of vile language on this forum...did you post about that??? I doubt it very seriously...Like, did you admonish the individual who made a post that sparked this post? Do you even know why when and how this post came about?????

That's what happens when the majority of the population has no vested interest in having a fiscally responsible gov't. In fact i suspect most have a vested interest in the opposite. You expect there to be civilized discussions about gov't finances, spending, good schools, and etc when most people can't even straighten their own lives, don't pay any income tax, or are dependant on a govt check? That being said, now what's your log number?

To be honest, I don't want such things happening to the "gentrifiers". I wouldn't wish it on anyone. It's wrong to wish that on someone.

If you are on the bottom, you need to do something to climb up and escape. You should do it of your own volition, but if you don't, gentrification will help you along.
Oh, BTW, I forgot to add...

Although I think gentrification is a good tool for urban renewal, I don't take glee in anyone's misfortune; after all, I am not psycho.
