|Harvard study: greater the black population, the lower the social mobility... thus the genius behind gentrification|
Nothing in America can be done that would displace/disenfranchise/debase black people; knowing this helps explain why the NAACP and its Senior Director of Economic Programs, Dedrick Muhammad, actively pursue the policy of making it illegal to try and reverse the Visible Black Hand of Economics. [Must End Gentrification to Advance Economic Equity, Huffington Post, 1-29-14]:
The corrosive effect of gentrification can be found throughout the nation even in the "liberal" whitest city of America Portland, Oregon. Portland is known internationally as a leader in urban design with many boasting of its bike-friendly streets, accessible 20-minute neighborhoods and quaint local business culture. In fact, this year, Portland was named the best U.S. city by the real estate company, Movato (sic).
Unbeknownst to many, however, Portland is also a case study in gentrification, a glaring reminder that urban economic disparities will persist as long as the structural inequalities of our economy remain.Portland is rated highly by the real estate company Movoto (not Movato) for the exact opposite reason Baltimore is hemorrhaging population: Portland is 72 percent white and Baltimore is 63.5 percent black.
Race explains everything, though we aren't supposed to notice this in 2014 America, where the drinking of Coca-Cola should wipe away all nasty reminders of this fact.
Race (the large presence of black people) explains why upward mobility is dead in large parts of America, though a new study from Harvard University tries to discredit this fact -- after admitting its veracity. [Why Is the American Dream Dead in the South?: Upward mobility has stayed the same the past 50 years despite skyrocketing inequality. But it's lower in the South (and Ohio) than anywhere else in the U.S.—or the rest of the developed world., The Atlantic, 1-26-14]:
The top 1 percent aren't killing the American Dream. Something else is—if you live in the wrong place.
Here's what we know. The rich are getting richer, but according to a blockbuster new study that hasn't made it harder for the poor to become rich. The good news is that people at the bottom are just as likely to move up the income ladder today as they were 50 years ago. But the bad news is that people at the bottom are just as likely to move up the income ladder today as they were 50 years ago.
1. Race. The researchers found that the larger the black population, the lower the upward mobility. But this isn't actually a black-white issue."The larger the black population, the lower the upward mobility." But it has nothing to do with race, right? Even though when a high concentration of black people is found in the south side of Chicago, in Gary (Indiana), Baltimore, Rochester (NY), north Tulsa, Prince George's County, Newark, Wilmington (Delaware), or Camden, the same law of the Visible Black Hand of Economics applies.
Simply put, black people have no purchasing power. Outside of government jobs, there truly is no black middle class: meaning, the black middle class existing requires massive federal funding to artificially defy the law of the Visible Black Hand of Economics.
When a private business tries to open a store and increase property value in a heavily black zip code, obviously discrimination is at the basis of this racial divisive business plan.
|Black people deserve the right to live in the their own filth!|
Back to Portland, a city with only a 6.2 percent black population. Those same laws of a high concentration of blacks repressing upward mobility (because the type of communities they individually help create drive away business and lower property value due to high crime rates) apply to "liberal" Portland. [Trader Joe's drops black-neighborhood store plan, AP, 2-3-14]:
The Trader Joe's grocery-store chain has dropped a plan to open a new store in the heart of the city's historically African-American neighborhood after activists said the development would price black residents out of the area.
The grocer, whose stores are found in urban neighborhoods across the nation, said Monday it wouldn't press its plan, given community resistance, The Oregonian reported.
"We open a limited number of stores each year, in communities across the country," it said in a statement. "We run neighborhood stores, and our approach is simple: If a neighborhood does not want a Trader Joe's, we understand, and we won't open the store in question."
The Portland Development Commission had offered a steep discount to the grocer on a parcel of nearly two acres that was appraised at up to $2.9 million: a purchase price of slightly more than $500,000. The lot is at Northeast Alberta Street and Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and has been vacant for years.
Critics said the development would displace residents and perpetuate income inequality in one of the most rapidly gentrifying ZIP codes in the nation.
The Portland African American Leadership Forum said the development commission had in the past made promises about preventing projects from displacing community members but hadn't fulfilled them.
It sent the city a letter saying it would "remain opposed to any development in N/NE Portland that does not primarily benefit the Black community." It said the grocery-store development would "increase the desirability of the neighborhood," for "non-oppressed populations."
Mayor Charlie Hales and the urban renewal agency's executive director, Patrick Quinton, signed a letter in January that described what they said was the commission's contributions "to the destructive impact of gentrification and displacement on the African American community."
"Increase the desirability of the neighborhood," simply means decreasing the black population, which means upward mobility will immediately increase (right Harvard?).
Restrictive Covenants once worked to protect property owners and maintain the integrity of long-term investments; with these being declared unconstitutional in 1947, America became a land where short-term profits based on the fear of a city/community/neighborhood being submerged by the black undertow became a real estate brokers best friend.
America isn't a real country; it's a place where every decision by the government, media, and academia
