Blacks are worried about whites moving into their hoods and Democrats with their hair on fire run around yelling about the harm that whites cause Black communities when they move in.

Obama defends gentrification ahead of presidential library construction
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news...for-president/


Community organizers asked Obama to guarantee jobs, benefits, and controls on housing costs
obama said no.

Obama is inviting whites to move in pushing out poor blacks so he can pay for his monument to himself

The library is privately- funded.

The city, not Obama, wants to widen some streets and create 4-5 underpasses to accommodate what it perceives as a revitalization of the area.

George Lucas intended to build a Star Wars Museum in Chicago on what is now a parking lot. After years of wrangling with the city and especially “ open air” advocates and assorted crazy people, he pulled the plug. Instead the $1 billion museum is being built in LA.

I sincerely wish the foundation would pull the plug and relocate to a nearby suburb that would welcome the development or even Honolulu.

It is interesting to hear about defense of ghetto arguments. Rural America is filled full of empty housing stock. It is inevitable that people moving into cities that have jobs will increase housing demand and drive up housing and rental prices.

Quote from Obama in Washington Times article

"If you go into some neighborhoods in Chicago where there are no jobs, no businesses and nothing’s going on, in some cases the rent’s pretty cheap. But our kids are also getting shot on that block.”

This is exactly what is occuring in many ghetto neighborhoods in desirable cities. People are moving in, starting businesses, hiring, and creating a demand for new shops. Rents will go up.

Unemployed will be forced to get a job or forced to move to cheaper place.

But the story even said gentrification was pushing out much of the white middle class, but they don't matter so headline is about blacks.

I totally agree with Obama on this . An area needs higher income people so that it can support decent businesses . Gentrification pretty much always means lower violent crime for an area which is a big plus .

We should let the market work things out and not make the number one priority keeping poor people in a neighborhood. People need to move to the neighborhood they can afford if they are renters .



““I know that I heard a couple people saying, ‘Well, we’re concerned about maybe rents might go up,’” Mr. Obama said. “Well here’s the thing. If you go into some neighborhoods in Chicago where there are no jobs, no businesses and nothing’s going on, in some cases the rent’s pretty cheap. But our kids are also getting shot on that block”

You're so funny in your bias, referring to it as though Obama is doing something outlandish like building a pyramid, ignoring the fact that all presidents have libraries these days.

Gentrification doesn’t have to mean white people moving in .
