TKC Warning: Kansas City Artists Working on Gentrifying More Urban Neighborhoods

Subtitle: The hipsters want to push minorities, poor white people and seniors out of their homes and smile whilst they're doing it.

Posted with snark because LOCALS SHOULDN'T BUY THIS STARVING ARTIST GARBAGE PROPAGANDA. When healthy looking youthful folks dressed in shabby chic coming knocking . . . Make sure they pay FULL PRICE AND MORE when they ask to cut a deal in hopes of garnering dirt cheap property for flipping.

Here's "public" radio cheering their pals and targeting people lower down the food chain:

No Longer Able To Afford The Crossroads, Kansas City Artists Once Again Pioneer New Neighborhoods

Kansas City's relatively new problem of affordable housing is also squeezing artists out of studios. That's especially noticeable in the Crossroads Arts District, which was a mostly abandoned area south of downtown when artists began to establish galleries and studios there in the mid-1980s.
