Interesting. My city is trying its best to gentrify neighborhoods especially in the more "urban" areas. So far they tore down some public housing apartments and replaced with single family homes.
At this rate I can totally see my area attracting the middle and high class. The only downfall is that it pushes those who are on the brink of poverty out of their environment. Hopefully it'll create more jobs - (better businesses are attracted to nicer neighborhoods)
I'm just rambling
Have a good day people

I live in reverse gentrification. My area is filled with Blacks moving out to the suburbs. A lot of the time that causes White either move further out or back in to the city.

@oddfutureindeed don't nobody want ur thirsty black ass!!! u sound like a hood rat!! & @DesiPrincess I just love confused ppl like u what ever race u are.. white ppl dnt give a shit about u! you'll be the same dumb smut who opens her legs to any white guy who comes along thinking white ppl love u when ur brothers, uncles, father are getting treated just like blk men who will never come up in this white man world. Find something better to do with ur life instead of waking up every morning to harrass blk ppl
IM BLACK......and im all for BRINGING up the neighborhoods. If you dont take care of your neighborhood, hanging out in front and on street corners, acting ghetto, selling drugs, and carrying guns, getting arrested then YOU NEED to be relocated to another area to live in because YOU are NOT wanted!
Lol @ black women hating on their men I mean u created them it's not their fault u didn't teach to love and respect a black women. Beside they know how hard it is to be african american in white man world so maybe they want mixed kids so it won't be so hard as it was for them idk that's my little though but back to the topic at hand gentrified
@Desprincess.... you're an idiot if you think this report means your people are doing good. If you are moving into the hood then it means you're doing bad.
The real reason why white people have been moving into these neighborhoods probably has more to do w/ the economy going to hell since 2000 and they had to move into lower income areas and cheaper housing. Ya'll dumb a;sses need to thank Bush for that. The Atlanta, GA 30317 zip code is the East Side of Atlanta. A lot different from the Northside of Atlanta were most of them live.
@oddfutureindeed.... you sound confused about life. Just because the media portrays Black America w/ some negative image doesn't mean you have to be dumb enough to fall for it. Let me ask you this: How many times have you turned on the news and heard one of your politicians involved in a scandal. From John Edwards, Larry Craig, Mark Foley, Jack Ryan, Bob Livingston etc. etc. etc. And who have been molesting and raping young kids in the church and in school. Your people again. Why is it that Chris Hansen only catches white people on the internet trying to f.uck little kids??? The difference between white people and black people is that Black peoples flaws are put out their to brainwash people into thinking we're a certain way; while White people's flaws are protected and shielded from public scrutiny. They just brush it under a rug and consider it an isolated event. Get Real Buddy...
@oddfutureindeed... Another point: Why is it that MTV's 16 and pregnant only shows white kids having illegitimate children out of wedlock??? Now Im not racists or anything like that but its funny how racists ignore the truth about their own race and only see what they want to see...
Also alot of u sound like fools because those that can't afford to pay that rent which the whites can will be forced out it's basically whitening neighboorhoods so I don't understand how u negras think this is a good thing for ya. Lol at Hispanic and asain men will now date u . Fucking idiots
@nickyiicky... Black Women dont want Asian men anyway... Nobody does. Hispanics loves blacks just like we love hispanics so dont get it confused. And you're not paying attention to the chart. The zip codes are black areas that are cheaper to live in. White people have been moving into these areas since 2000 because the economy has f.ucked everybody's living situation up. Read between the lines.... Its not sumthin to be happy about...
Yeah now that Bed-Stuy is much cheaper than manhattan I'm noticing a lot of white people coming in to the neighborhood. But I only see them on their way to work, or coming home, or on saturday mornings. They must hang in manhattan or something lol
11205 , 11206 is down town brooklyn of course its gonna be more whiteS moving in the barclay center is down there like duh YOU CAN THANK YOUR BUDDY JAY-Z FOR THE GENTRAFICATION HELP!!!!! BESIDES FORT GREENE HASNT BEEN A MAJORITY BLACK FOR YEARS NOW WHEN WHITE FOLKS START TO MOVE BACK TO BROWNSVILLE MOST OF FLATBUSH AND EAST NEWYORK IN MAJOR NUMBERS HOLLA AT ME THOSE ARE SOME OF THE BIGGIEST PARTS OF BK AND THE OTHER PARTS LIKE CROWN HEIGHTS AND SHEEPS HEAD BAY AND BENSONHURST ETC ALWAYS HAD WHITE FOLKS
They're trying to do this in parts of New Orleans too. All white people do is drive
up the prices of these homes making it unaffordable for blacks who have lived
their for generations. Luckily some of the historic houses they're attracted to
are smack dab in the ghetto so they have to give it plenty of thought and tread
NPR did a story on this a few months back how this white guy purchased several homes
on the same block in D.C. and NEVER lived in them...renovated them etc but decided
to have a Christmas party for his fancy friends in one of the older homes. Well when
the party was over several of his guests were robbed on way to their vehicles. No one
even felt sorry for them. They buy up these properties and sure as hell refuse to send
their kids to the neighborhood schools so WHY...ask yourselves that question.
They want it ALL!!! GREED!
It's not about white people moving into the neighborhoods, it's more of what's going to happen in the not so distance future once they move in. What will happen is the brokers will raise the property value and the cost of living will start to go up. So the people who have been living comfortably in a certain neighborhood will be forced to move out, eventually. More likely than not they will have move into more crowded neighborhood, which may be an area with a higher crime rate or a low rent area with low property value. Then it just becomes a cycle that's detrimental to specific demographic.
I'm all for diversity, but gentrification is nothing more than greed and it's destroying hard working people's lives. Yuppies lust after the opportunity to live in "quaint" appartments, lofts and/or brownstones. They will pay whatever it takes to live in a big city, to them it's such a hip place to live and they can afford it, so it doesn't matter to them either way. I doubt they come to neighborhoods with motives of destroying the lives of others. They just don't understand how greedy brokers and bankers are. It's sad but true...
Why waste ya time respondin to idiots like odd future, desi, datouch lightskin creole etc? Soon everyone will find out who the real monsters are, the real poison in society...& no they won't be black!...even tho they will be white guess what? they don't like other "uninitiated" whites so ya milky aszes ain't safe either!!...everyone will be a slave to the rich or dead you fckn dummies!! stop with the racism and get a clue about what's really happening in the world..
no one safe unless you at the top of the pyramid and none of you idiot everyday mto readers are! So keep postin ya b.s racial gibberish none ya gon survive anyway losers! makin it so easy for ppl that don't like and hate you to the core smh wish I was never born around such stupidity, hope they wipe this planet out already...and then GOD will wipe their elite devil worshippin coward aszes out then comes the fresh start.. AMEN
What idiot made this a topic?
I'm a little appalled that MTO felt the need to point out to an URBAN site that there's WHITE PEOPLE moving into which were probably predominantly Black neighbors; like we should be proud or something...
Doesn't anybody see this as a "Look Massa! I is happy you lives wit us now!" type of thing??
Educated blacks should be happy about this, when whites move into ANY area, they clean it up, make it safer, bring in business, basically brings life back into the community. It doesn't take a genius to figure this out. Name one white ghetto, dare u! You can't!
This issue is about your tax base. Whether it housing, small business, clubs, bars or whatever it is generating money for you too. Money attracts more money. Without a good tax base city services will be cut or eliminated. It's called quality of life and its your choice whether you want to hate or contribute.
OAKLAND CALIFRONIA SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON THIS LIST....ESPECIALLY WEST OAKLAND AND THE DOWNTOWN AREA!!!!!
ALSO WHEN THE ELDERS DIE BLACKS NEED TO COME TOGETHER TO KEEP THE HOUSE IN THE FAMILY FOR GENERATIONS TO COME
NOTHING LIKE BEING AROUND THE BEAUTIFUL WHITES!! THIS IS WHY I FEEL SO COMFORTABLE AROUND THEM!!! THEY ARE SUCH CIVILIZED BEINGS!! NO LOUD A$$ BABIES AND WORTHLESS MOTHERS SCREAMING AT THEM!!! NO FRIED CHICKEN SMELLS THROUGHOUT THE DAY!! NO STRIPPER PARTIES OR ESCORT SERVICES TO CORRUPT YOUR KIDS!!! I LOVE BEING AROUND WHITES I FEEL RIGHT @ HOME!!
I FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE AROUND WHITES!!!!
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR AND MALCOLM X HAD WHITE QUEENS ON THEIR ARMS!!!
ALL UP IN YA!
In 1935 my white family bought a brand new rowhouse in Washington DC (in one of these zip codes). In 1959, when race relations between Blacks and Whites got so out of hand, my family left DC and moved to the Maryland suburbs. And when I say race relations got bad, I mean that my family couldn't leave the house without getting eggs thrown at them. It's really amazing how cyclical life is - the Whites who left in the 1950s are moving back in the 2010s. Currently I am one of the only Whites in my beautiful Black neighborhood and I have the utmost respect for my neighbors and they treat me with the utmost respect. AMEN to that!!
