(I hope you weren’t offended. Actually, I don’t care if you were. At the least, it’s not as bad as this Black History Month skit from SNL.)
Whether gentrification (which usually has the connotation of middle- to upper-class white people moving into a poor black community, subsequently driving up housing costs) is a bad thing depends on who you ask. I’ve even heard an African-American pastor (who ministers in a very poor community in Greenville, SC), say, “Some people call it gentrification. I just call it capitalism.”
And others say that not only is gentrification rare, but it is ultimately good for those in poverty.
For humor . . .
For seriousness . . .
