Re: “Gentrification: Part One

I love this. Probably the best and most comprehensive article I've ever read about Gentrification. Kudos to including many sides of the story objectively.

A couple thoughts: what about those who fall into more than one category? Homeowners who are also SJWs? And what about the majority of people who aren't immediately and directly affected by the changes? Most of them won't have the attention span to make it through an article like yours about the topic, much less have a sincere discussion about it. Sound bite opinions are far more convenient, and sadly, are more popular than ever - especially on social media.

I personally fall mainly into a "pro-gent" category, having witnessed the magnificent changes gentrification has brought to my own city of Pittsburgh. But Pittsburgh has also worked hard to minimize the impact on the most vulnerable by protecting affordable housing and assuring good paying jobs for locals as much as possible.

Id love to read more of what you write on the topic. Is there a way to sign up to receive notifications when you post?
