Urban Liberalism: White Gentrification

Today’s subject comes from Huffington Post:

Few cities in the U.S. embody the growing divide between rich and poor quite like New York and San Francisco. In just the past 20 years, both have changed from economically diverse melting pots to exclusive playgrounds for the rich.

The change is clear in striking new visualizations from the U.S. Census Bureau, crunching data from its latest American Community Survey of population and income.

I wonder how many families in the dark zones have a son that looks like Trayvon?

Huffpo’s Kevin Short intended this article and it’s massaged presentation of wealth disparity ($75k is a low number) to be argument fodder for the mainstream, more gaudy pablum for a bumper sticker bourgeo-tariat.  Blahblah growing divide between the rich and poor.  Muh capitalism, muh fairness, ad nauseum.

I want you, dear reader, to instead take note of the subtle and devastating implication that even entrenched liberal pundits like Short cannot help to avoid.

“…economically diverse* melting pots* to exclusive playgrounds for the rich.”

Do you see? Kevin Short admits here what causes any intellectually-honest liberal to lose sleep at night: that diversity can never be economically successful or affluent.  Fact is, diversity cannot afford foodie porn or barista tips or weekends viewing the galleries of sterilized filth SWPLs insultingly refer to as “art.”

At best, diversity will be found cleaning the restrooms or cooking the food.

Diversity can never afford a Democrat country.
For all their insufferable rhetoric and idiotic triffles, White Brahmins and their “multiculturalism” actively **clear out** minority areas when they move in.  This is because of simple supply and demand.  SWPLs do not enjoy soul food, cheap fried food is anathema.  They prefer organic to value markets,  Verizon over Boost Mobile.  As liberal Whites have more disposable income than diversity, markets will inevitably adjust to accommodate the Whites and their more expensive tastes. In urban environments where space to conduct business is at a premium, there is little room for coexistence between diversity and progress.  Progressive Whites can posture about being enriched around non-whites, but the fact is that the non-whites cannot afford to share in the experience. Particularly in more racially-heterogeneous urban centers, progressive liberalism has been found to be an absolute boon for urban renewal.  This modern racial gentrification/block-busting has in many cities helped to revive sections that had deteriorated due to its previous inhabitants. Of course, liberals would rather people ignore the fact that progressive SWPL culture has accidentally achieved what White Nationalists and racial separatists have always desired, and without any conflict to boot.
