I’m just inquiring on how well the gentrification process is going on The Northshore? How many years in and how much longer before it’s totally gentrified? Because it seems as though it’s about 75% totally done.

Wow great news for the advancement of Louisiana!


Gentrification brings in more tax dollars and revenue to Louisiana businesses by attracting younger population groups that bring higher levels of skilled labor to the local economy.


I know I have seen people on other parts of the internet asking about opportunities to move into Northshore.


Does anyone have photos to share to help inspire this group of people to continue moving to Northshore?

They are busy gentrifying the city now, the poor folk will move up to Slidell and the westbank. Then you'll have to push them out of Slidell yourself. Might wanna wear gloves or else you'll get poor on your hands.

It's so strange. I've never heard of gentrification being spoken in a positive way until I found this forum.

White people moving away from cities to places with more white people = white flight = bad
White people moving to cities with more non white people = gentrification = bad

We give them checks or cash and they move along without any problems.


Most hit the casino on their way out.


The problematic people are those who sold their grandparent's home yet still live their paying rent to the man they sold it too.


Life is stranger than fiction.

Do you live there? I didn't know there was a concerted effort to transfer population from New Orleans.

Or are you inferring there's too many whites living there. I did see some blacks at Kenny's the other day, so maybe we're already at 90%.

Amiright?

Most of these folks seem privileged and only see life through their lens.

The problematic part is the system that allows perpetual poverty to a certain class of people.

White people moving away from urban areas wasnt the problem, it was the lack of economic opportunity for people who were banned by law to have the same rights as other Americans. There plenty of great minority neighborhoods in many cities until Jim Crow came into affect.

White people moving into a majority black neighborhood is fine. What's not fine is coming here and blatantly asking how to remove these people because you now love the location of a house. Meanwhile the reason why you actually like the neighborhood is the element you want to remove.
Play in traffic.

Actually, the last four real estate deals we did in neighborhoods were with minorities of which you would classify having economic problems. We gave them the cash they wanted and they were very happy to move out of Louisiana. Most wanted to go to California or Florida to be with family. Others were just selling an old inherited home and had home already so they were excited to get just cash. Many bought cars instead of homes. Car prices are a whole other factor that have not been given proper attention by community activists and arm chair quarterbacks.



However, in one case with a black family that was odd and goes against all you preach on these forums, they were trying to cheat each other out of the money. They were not willing to share the money or even admit that other family members had the right to sign away their property.



An old woman, Tousaint, passed away a few years ago. Her family approached me about buying the land and I denied because their family could not give me all the signatures of her relatives. A few months later, an heir to old woman Tousaint from California arrived in town. She asked me to buy the land and I denied again. She ignored my warnings about signatures and found a man from Asia to buy the property for cash. She promised to split the money up with her black relatives that owned a property next door. Instead overnight, she cashed the check and disappeared with $45,000. Her family was upset and claimed she forged the deed signatures. Then her relatives living next door sold their inherited home to the same man for less than $20,000. I stopped and asked them why they sold their home for so little money and they told me to stay out of their business. I forced the issue by asking what they were going to do with the money. Less than a minute later, a black man in his late 30's came out with a knife and told me to leave rude remarks about my race were told to me. From my readings here on this forum, I kept recording the confrontation using my body camera and told the man he was not helping society. I advised him to ensure he split the money up with family members and that made him even more upset. Next, he came within 15 feet of me and I got into my vehicle and drove to my land down the street.



From then on my motivation to help impoverished people understand what they are doing with their money when they sell their land without full signatures of all heirs and proper documentation along with a fair price has dropped to zero because this series of real estate transactions last year.


You can keep acting like the voice for all people who are taken advantage of by gentrification but until you hit the streets and see how many are more than eager to sell, you cannot keep stating that everyone is upset about it!


They simply do not see it as an issue of economic opportunity because of a lack of jobs. Rather it we are seeing when people have the ability to sell property then they do so quickly. You can check the real estate deeds across Louisiana and see this activity of selling out for quick cash over and over again.



Stop blaming those of us who work hard to develop the community and instead educate the community to prevent them from this sell it quick for cash behavior.

That is 80% of America, and covers all races, even yours.

This 'system' was created primarily for one to do things himself. It's gone from what you describe below, to now giving more to the poorer class (which obviously doesn't work). So am I correct that you want to reform welfare? Because that is what is holding the poorer class hostage.

Jim Crow was banned decades ago, and nothing has changed. There is plenty of economic opportunity for everyone now.

Inaccurate. Most gentrifiers want the location or the look/feel of the houses and neighborhood. Those houses were built before the poorer class moved in and brought the crime and the property values plummeted.

You harbor some serious hate within yourself. Telling a person to go kill himself because you disagree with his opinion. Nice.
