Saving East Side Kansas City From The Scourge Of Middle-Class Good Intentions

Yet another missive from the chattering class who mistakenly believe they can solve poverty, racial divisions and political discord with the power of their kind warm fuzzy sentiments and/or angst for their racist upbringing. Take a look:

Troost Renaissance: Revitalization or Gentrification? Or Can It Be Both? - In Kansas City

One night a couple of weeks ago, Chadwick Brooks called an Uber to drive him home to his new place at 55th and Garfield. The driver, a black man, looked back at Brooks, a white man, and said, "Really?" Really, Brooks said. "He said, 'Damn,'" Brooks says.

It's always the gays that move in to the hood first, then the hipsters and developers, that start the cleaning up of the surrounding areas. Gotta give em credit they are good at turning shitholes into something desirable, which is quite ironic if you think about it. As for the people who like the area the way it is, there are plenty of prime properties further east and south that will fit your needs, i.e. Prospect and Van Brunt. Little risk of gentrification there, the location isn't as good as Troost.

You can have gentrification and revitalization at the same time. To start with, you need a fleet of bulldozers.

The city is smashing as many houses as they can in that area, its awesome! it’s the only way to run the koloreds out, it’s the only way to save the central core, it’s not the eastside, it’s really called the central core. You should see all the hipsters in that area now, they’re gonna fix it!

The best way to stop development is name a street after the greedy King clan.

Multiculturalism is ideological gonorrhea.

The King clan charges residents for each piece of mail received with King's name on it.

Gays know something about plumbing the depths of shitholes.

Love the people bitching. If white people move in it's gentrification, if white people move out it's white flight. So black people, is their an exact percentage of acceptable white people you can give us? For decades it has gone so so well for the East side being entirely black. I mean, who wouldn't want to have block after block that looks like 49th & Indiana? Doesn't every neighborhood want the murders that Benton Blvd or College Ave has? Stupid fuckers. Nobody is more racist than black people.
