It's obviously valid in this case since the poster didn't have a clue.

There doesn't seem to be an area of a super majority of white people in SBC.

Default Low-income housing is what's being developed downtown

You don't even live here anymore, so you really don't know what you're talking about.
FWIW....the Olgivie Hardware Bldg apts are "low-income restricted" which means the max a couple can earn to be eligible to live there is less than $30,000 per year. That's not even the median-level income of $31,000+ (by itself considered low for a metro area our size). If people think low-income housing is the answer to downtown revitalization; what exactly is the kind of vision they are promoting? Low-income housing attracts low income folks who have limited discretionary spending. Not exactly the vibrant vision of trendy, free-spending hipsters now is it?

The Dallas company will be receiving tax-credit/incentives for making this area low-income housing. Otherwise they wouldn't have given this project a second look.
Sorry....them's just the facts. We can put a pretty bow on it all we want, it's still low - income.
