  • When Black Folks Move To A White Neighborhood, Do They Have ‘respect For The History, For The Culture’? This fellow seems upset that certain groups are improving property values and helping his old neighborhood become a safe and desirable place for people to live:

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/26/us/new-york-spike-lee-gentrification/
    IA, you are correct about income not affecting what the neighborhood looks like. I could take you to obviously low income towns in my state where the streets are clean, lawns are kept up, and the crime rate is low, and I could take you to others where you’ll roll up the windows, lock the doors, and pray we don’t get a flat as we drive through.
    zombie, families that had lived there for decades WERE ABLE to move. I’m sure they had no trouble selling and got more money for their property. If the opposite happened, if property values went down and crime went up, they’d be stuck there.

  • James says:

    Trader Joes Development In Portland OR Was Cancelled Because It Would Bring In To Many White People. Racism? There is something terribly wrong in a nation where one race can openly reject a company because, in their minds, it might attract members of another race
    While most communities welcome opportunities that will drive up home prices, black Liberals in Portland (and everywhere else) seem to love the PayDay loans stores, bail bondsmen, liquor stores, and run-down bodegas.
    What would happen if we saw everything through racial eyes. It will not benefit the WHITE community.
    The Portland African American Leadership Forum said they would continue to be opposed to development that didn’t benefit the black community. It accused the Portland Development Commission, which green lighted the Trader Joe’s, of contributing to “to the destructive impact of gentrification and displacement on the African American community.”
    This is racism. Not some perceived slight
    Isn’t the black unemployment rate high enough. Is this part of the reason why black unemployment is so high? Black culture?

  • James says:

    Is Refusing To Allow White People In A Neighborhood Called Racism? Local community leaders and activists said on Feb. 3 that opening a Trader Joe’s in the historically Black neighborhood would “increase the desirability of the neighborhood for non-oppressed populations” and risk gentrifying the neighborhood.
    Gentrification is lowering the crime rate, increasing job opportunity, thus increasing property values. This brings in other colors then black. Black people call this racism.
    Everyone has an equal opportunity in America. People should live where they want. Black leaders call this racism because only some will benefit. The drug dealers, drug addicts, prostitutes and some disaffected have to move. It will also create opportunity for others.
    Isn’t the black unemployment rate high enough. Is this part of the reason why black unemployment is so high? Black culture?

    • Curator says:

      Yes, but leave them to it. They deserve it. There are ways to fight it, but why?

      They might can banish whitey, but when the latinos want in, they’ll get in. And if they so wish, drive the blacks away with impunity. I’ve seen it happen. They just think whitey is bad.

  • James says:

    How Would You Characterize The Term “Living Like Animals” As Applied To Ghetto? Having open crack houses. Gangs running the streets. Drug and prostitution sales walking the street. Open violence and rape. An policy that if whites move in the neighborhood, it would be gentrification and racism.
    Is this bad thinking and living in filth like animals?
    Gentrification is now considered racism and can stop developments and general improvement of areas.

    • Curator says:

      I use to do work in the ghetto got a kick out of ”President” Obama talking out of that traumatic event that he endured for 35 years and that is hearing a car door lock as his imposing self was in the area
      Oh how sad How about this starting to cross the street being blocked by a car full of blacks have one wave a gun at you ”white boy y’all in the wrong hood”
      Or maybe this having to hire for security people to stand on the four corners till the city signs off on the work then seeing the building trashed in hours
      Or maybe this having to drive a poor Asian worker to the hospital as some kid hit him over the head with a bottle as he would not given them money we did tell him ”never turn your back on a one of them”

  • James says:

    Gentrification. Is It Racism To Lower The Crime Rate, Increase Jobs And Up Property Values? It is now racism to improve the neighborhoods. Trying to keep them from living like animals in filth is racism now. Is this racist? Or is it racist to try to help?
    Make up your mind. Should we consider welfare racism and discontinue it?

      Primary school teachers don’t teach a specific subject – they teach all round. So on that note, there’s no particular subjects you have to take at GCSE in order to become a primary school teacher. As long as you do well in English, Maths and Science at GCSE, and then choose maths, English and science again at A Level and do well, you should be fine.

      As far as year 9 options go, choose the subjects your good at and enjoy. At my school, RE is a compulsory subject so I had to take it but it really isn’t bad at all. It’s reasonably straight forward and it can be quite interesting – you learn a lot about abortion and IVF etc. The only downside is you have to learn a lot of religious teachings and you have to be good at English – there’s a lot of writing involved and you need to be able to structure a paragraph well, include all of the elements required (Key Vocabulary, Religious Teachings, Religious Knowledge etc – these will be explained if you take the subject). You also need to be able to stick to strict timings and that can be difficult. I take Geography and I wish I didn’t! You study it in two halves – human and physical. Human is the more simple one – it’s basically common sense. In physical geography, there’s a lot more to remember. You need to be able to draw a lot of diagrams, be able to fully describe processes in detail and a lot more. In both physical and human, you need to be able to define pointless words such as ‘gentrification’ and remember case studies for every topic (some requiring two!) and be able to use and refer to these in your answers. I also take Business Studies and it’s one of my favourite subjects this year! At our school, we have to come up with our own ideas and think of our own business ideas – name, logo, objectives, locations etc. We start off as a ‘sole trader’ and as the course continues, we develop our businesses into bigger things – for example, in to partnerships, and then expand to a private limited companies. There are so many good things about business studies, it’s such a great subject and it’s really fun! The only downside I can think of is that there’s a LOT of words you need to remember and you need to know what they mean. I take ICT too but it’s not in your list, so I wont say much apart from you should be creative but apart from that it’s relatively easy but there’s a lot of things incl. advantages and disadvantages of different things that you need to remember. It’s fun though but the coursework you start midway through year 10 can be boring.

      I don’t do history but I have friends that do. Apparently it isn’t particularly boring but there’s a lot of writing to do and you need to be able to identify sources and link them to different situations. Art is very time consuming – it’s good if you’re creative but takes a lot of your time up and you need to put all of your effort in. If you don’t try your hardest, you’ll never pass. Subjects such as textiles, music and drama are just plain boring and you shouldn’t take them unless you really enjoy them, are really good at them or aspire to have a career related to one of these, which you don’t so I wouldn’t worry too much.

      So yeah, take the subjects that you want to take because you’re good at them, enjoy them and are confident you will get a good grade in. PLEASE don’t take a subject because you think it will be easy, because your friends are doing it or because you like the teachers. What was easy in year 9 will probably be more difficult in year 10. If your friends find something easy and enjoy it, it doesn’t mean you will. Some teachers turn really strict once it reaches GCSE level as you need to put all your effort in to every subject – even the pointless ones you don’t want to take, like a language!

      I wish you all the best!
