I just realized that I’m going to be out of town this weekend, when the Gentrification in Los Angeles event is going down. So, if anybody out there wants to go and represent me, here is my argument in a nutshell: Not all white skin = oppresor, not all brown skin = oppressed. If anybody makes it over I’d love to hear a report. I might even, you know, repost it here and not give you any credit.
While we’re on the subject, I should share that it sounds like the neighbor to the north (the mexican family that likes to confer with the rear neighbor about how we’re bad for the community because we report them when they do illegal things), is planning on raising the rent on the other unit on their property by a considerable margin, thus effectively evicting the old Filipino couple that has lived there for years (and with whom we get along fabulously). It’s a complex world, my brothers.
Just kidding about the credit thing, by the way.
