Family friendly gentrification is possible. If you can afford the right neighborhood and the right charter schools.

In Washington, DC, certain gentrified neighborhoods are very family friendly. If I made an extra $100K a year, I would be tempted to move my family into one of them.

I personally believe high density urban areas are the future.

I'm all for gentrification, especially when the people moving in will not turn nice areas into war zone hoods.



I remember similar comments being made about the Warsaw ghetto by another party.


Why don't you go move to Baltimore I'm sure your love and tolerance will overcome the high crime rate there. Try to move to the toughest black neigjborhood.


You have no idea where I grew up at.Why don't you turn down your faux outrage and your pseudo confrontational role playing rhetoric . Isn't it interesting to note that you define neighborhoods by racial characteristics.Your comments don't even stand the test of even casual scrutiny by design so that you can see if another person will bite on the obvious bait. Is that what you think the stereotypical mindset is of the people you're representing in your role playing today?

So you grew up in a rough neighborhood?

So you still contend that it's just schools that are the determining factor and bigotry and prejudice is just a giant conspiracy by those that disagree with the assessment that your attempting to sell today as part of your latest role playing bid?

P I love ya but I think your tirade against bigotry is pointless. People who care about the future will find the best schools for there children.

People that deny bigotry and prejudice exist in this context are just perpetuating it.Your role playing rant about schools is pointless when you ignore the larger elephant in the room issue that fuels it. Oh, and about that elephant ,be careful where you step.Tomorrow I want to play the tea bagger. I'm at least am old enough to pull off the implied stereotype.It should be a lot easier than re reading Das Kapital.

Difference is, that ghetto was populated by a working peoples who strive and shaped their neighborhoods into wonderful places to live. They were educated, cultured people who did not turn their homes and locations into warzones ridden with crime, misery, poverty, no education, violence and drugs.

The people who populate the ghettos of America? Not so much; no, they'd rather spend their time taking part in drive by shootings, conversing in the latest "urban speech", raising their kids in fatherless homes, selling drugs, dropping out of school and popping out a dozen kids to unwed moms to ensure the continuation of the cycle.

By all means, please relocate yourself to the South Bronx, or "hood" Atlanta, or Detroit or some other place since you apparently feel these ghetto people of America are honorable folks and we, the ones who are against such nonsense, are vile, depraved and racist folks for pointing out all their problems.

You talk the talk, let's see you actually walk the walk.

Or are you just going to remain a social justice warrior who preaches equality, but never would want to live in aforementioned areas and get to know these types of hood rats?

When in the city, good schools can be had with the right zip code, or by paying for the right charter school/private school. Both options are expensive, but if your looking at moving to a gentrified neighborhood you're not poor. The poor people are the ones being evicted.

Yes: in DC poor overwhelmingly means black. Don't think that means all blacks in DC are poor, the wealthier neighborhoods are some of the most racially diverse.

Been there, done that.

When I first took my current job I had no money to afford to move my family, or even afford my own place. I lived in a homeless shelter in Southeast DC for a while.

Three years and four promotions later, I am finally in a good neighborhood and will be in a position to relocate my family by the end of the year.

Bigotry isn't what caused my company to outlaw services in some parts of some cities that shall remain nameless. It was the loss of life and equipment that did.

Compton also has this issue, so instead of fixing the issue, they renamed themselves to Rancho Dominguez.

My area is already gentrified and getting more so as time goes by but it is family friendly with good schools. It's possible to have both in one location.

I remember when Domino's stopped delivery in certain areas.

After three delivery men were killed in less than a week for the <$20 in change they carried.

Yeah, along those same lines, but at a much higher cost of equipment.
