They also aren't nearly as effected by the shifting demographics here in the Cities so I believe they are oblivious to how rapid it's spreading.


The suburbs around here though are changing seemingly rapidly - I personally chalk that up to some of these policies of the federal (and State) government that if these suburbs don't have a certain amount of "affordable (FREE) housing" they will be hit hard with loss of dollars. Same with the public school system.


In other words, "You had better take it the way we give it to you and LIKE IT!... you HATEFUL RACIST LILLY WHITE TRASH, OR ELSE!!!..." we're (the "Man"/Federal Government) going to destroy you.
Okay, the suburbs are changing demographically. So what? I live in a place that has been changing in terms of demographics. Doesn't bother me one bit. As long as I have good neighbors, it doesn't matter to me.

And something else. What if it isn't "affordable housing"? What if it is people legitimately buying their homes?

They are silly to you. However, it is not silly to me. If someone retweets a post with anti-Black sentiments, then what else am I suppose to think other than they have a low opinion of Blacks? I also notice you cherry pick the Neo-Nazi tweet. If you think it's that silly to you, then you are the one with a problem.

And I don't mind living around people who are of a different ethnicity than myself. I have done it my whole life.

My question to you. If someone of a different ethnicity than you moved next door to you, would you treat them as a neighbor, or try to sell your house?

??? If someone retweets something, it's because they agree with the tweet. It's a passive aggressive way of agreeing without actually saying it yourself. Duh. That's not rocket science.

To be honest, I'd rather live in Minnesota than live in Georgia right now.

But people from your side of the political isle are against "gentrification", though.

Agreed. Your post also made me think of some other things. Some people probably share the same opinion as Trump, but won't voice it. Another theory I have is this: Some people like that President Trump doesn't think about what he says. In their mind, it is an example "speaking his mind".

You don't even know me or how I feel about gentrification. If you have nothing better to do than accuse me or make assumptions about me, go somewhere else

And you still never answered any of my questions. As usual, evasion.

Gentrification is partially about control of the real estate market and the value of real estate. That's why some people have negative views on gentrification because it quite often effects poorer people in a negative way.

When are left-wingers going to push white infiltration into nations like Mexico? When are they going to push white infiltration into China, or Japan...or Iran?



NOT...GOING...TO...HAPPEN.


As others here have appropriately pointed out the cultural marxists sure like "diversity" of Caucasian lands - the lands our ancestors gave their lives to, were taxed to help construct - but good lord if anyone ever points out this agenda is clearly made to wipe out Caucasian culture as the means to the end, because if it wasn't, we would be seeing this in places like I just pointed out.


Saudi Arabia (and various other FILTHY rich Muslim countries) still haven't taken one Syrian-refugee soul in. Sick. Absolutely SICK.


And you globalists have the nerve to label us "RACISTS!!" or various other trash, simply for no less than having concern our cultures/traditions/mores/norms are being absolutely smeared into oblivion. How dare you.
