Bahooey for sympathy. There is NO DISPLACEMENT in EGP. We are 70% a vacant lot or neighborhood

Pander, Pander, Pander....push hot buttons to gain sympathy and support.

Seems only the anti gentrification people get airtime and no one talks about economics, the tax base, crime and violence in contest of what goes on in a destroyed neighborhood. 2/3rds of Chicago map is a destroyed neighborhood with vacancy rates so high criminals rule the streets. Turn on the news daily and hear about murder, shooting, carjacking with the highest number in the neighborhoods anti gentrifiers want to stay...

Seems only the anti gentrification people get airtime and no one talks about economics, the tax base, crime and violence in contest of what goes on in a destroyed neighborhood. 2/3rds of Chicago map is a destroyed neighborhood with vacancy rates so high criminals rule the streets. Turn on the news daily and hear about murder, shooting, carjacking with the highest number in the neighborhoods anti gentrifiers want to stay the same.

Change aka progress occurs every moment in the day in every country in the world. Preparing to change is crucial to ones' survival as progress wipes out jobs. It is progress not China killing US jobs. Already the $15 per hour folk have wiped out some percentage of kiosk fast food jobs. McDonalds already has them as do some other fast food restaurants. Cars wipped out the horse and buggy. Electricity wiped out Gas lights. The list goes on forever of how progress displaces.

The solution is to KEEP UP WITH THE TIMES. Get an education or training in a job that will pay a decent wage. Buy in a disinvested/destroyed neighborhood and ride the profit train for 20-30 years. If you are lucky u can make a million bucks. What a happy event that is for some I know who rode that train and could cash out at retirement.

There should be MORE on how to survive a 70% vacant neighborhood changing to a fully occupied neighborhood. There should be instructions on how to get in on this opportunity. Pitfalls should be explained. Benefits should be explained.

    'There Isn't A Just Housing Choice': How We've Enabled The Pains Of Gentrification
    Gentrification is no longer something that just happens in low-income neighborhoods. As the phenomenon displaces communities of color, from Inglewood to Washington, D.C., "gentrification" has been co-opted to include food and culture as well. So, what does the loaded term really mean? According to urban sociologist John Schlichtman, gentrification cannot happen without disinvestment.

    When someone wants to push a hot button they say gentrification.

    The truth is that URBAN RENEWAL is important!

    Chicago does not develop the city in any kind of fair and just way. Resources are not allocated in a fair way. The rich get richer.

    Did u see the Catholic Charities Deacon Tom Roberts and MGM CBS special on the news? Search john Blackstone,CBS and u can see it.

    Looks like MGM is joining Starbucks in systematizing food waste! It is uplifting.

    I deliver Whole Foods Church donations and Breakthrough donations to Seniors in EGP. They Love it! Trying foods they never would have even known existed is part of the "surprise" box.
