Boyle Heights is Battling Fiercely Against Gentrification - Curbed LA

Quote:
Boyle Heights is increasingly looking like the next great battleground in LA's ongoing struggle over gentrification, and a new story in the Guardian shows how bitter that fight has become. Seeking to curb the influence of outside money on (and interest in) the community, some neighborhood activists have adopted intimidation techniques geared at non-community members. Last year, an organization called Serve the People LA forced a group of UCLA students on a walking tour out of the area and chased an experimental opera company out of Hollenbeck Park.
So it's okay to allow anyone and everyone into the country, but when they start buying homes in left dominated neighborhoods, and the rents/home prices start to climb (due to increased demand), then the lefty activist start "adopting intimidation techniques" by screaming and chasing people out of their neighborhoods?

Can someone explain this hypocrisy from the left?

This whole Boyle Heights fiasco is showing the left's true colors.

I find the hypocrisy normal for the left, but I find the results more entertaining.

The hilarious thing is, in many of these large, diverse cities, many neighborhoods had already turned 2-3 times before they were "gentrified". In Pilsen and Little Village neighborhoods of Chicago, some SJW moon bat sprayed graffiti on hipster cafes "white people outta here! Sabes que vive aqui? La raza!" Nope, never mind the fact that I used to sit in my Czech grandfather's auto garage in LV 30 years ago when LV was where the slavic raza lived. Most of the Mexicans couldn't care less if hipsters are gentrifying the neighborhood, they're happy to be moving to the suburbs, just like my family were before the neighborhood was gentrified by Mexicans. Neighborhoods turn, things change, people need to get over themselves.
