Empress Sister Phile’Chionesu architect and natural healer is going to tell you where you can live and where she can live!
“In their mating and migratory habits, liberals are indistinguishable from members of the Ku Klux Klan,” said the late, great Joseph Sobran.
And now progressives have a perfectly acceptable excuse as to why they do this – and they have gotten black people to make the excuse for them (sort of like Margaret Sanger got black preachers to tell their black parishioners not to have so many babies and use birth control). Yes, the white devil exists, and he is the progressive.
Gentrification is the new evil in the black lexicon. We’ve heard it from Spike Lee, Portland “activists” who want to keep their culturally significant food desert, and the New York Times. Basically, anything that attracts white people is very bad for black people, except when black people want to move into a white neighborhood. Then you get the New York Times stamp of approval.
Now comes news from Philadelphia that an emergency meeting was called so people could tell their horror stories of when gentrification came to their neighborhood and the neighborhood improves.
According to Philly.com, “people from all over Philadelphia came together to tell their stories about gentrification at the Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia. Organizers had issued fliers calling for an “emergency town hall” to confront a “crisis facing black Philadelphia: the demise of our neighborhoods.” Sister Empress Phile (read her resume, and you will conclude she is unemployed), one of the organizers, said the group will host more town halls and ask for more public meetings, including congressional hearings.
Ultimately, Phile said she and the other activists plan to appeal to the United Nations that gentrification is a human-rights violation, or when economic-development policies displace one ethnic group with another. Or, you know, when culturally significant filth and squalor is replaced with cleanliness and civilization.
Because it’s the people who make this place great, at HR consultants like to say.
“In the very near future, we are going to ask for accountability from our elected officials,” Phile said yesterday. “Questions have to be answered: How did this development occur? And what representatives within the community were contacted or notified?”
Well, Sister Phile, I can give you a little bit of information about gentrification happens. It could be the natural migration of people, having to do with freedom of movement, and people seeing an opportunity to improve available and affordable real estate and build equity. When people who care about where they live and have some money to spend on necessities and discretionary items, retailers and service providers notice and move near these people.
All sorts of people are driven out by some sort of gentrification – if they are not property owners. And then they find a new place, and sometimes they improve it. Sometimes people migrate and ruin a place, like Detroit. Or Camden. Or Newark. They used to be historically white cities and then de-gentrification ruined them.
Are black people responsible for anything that they create to that happens to them? Or are they so infantile that they can’t create anything good?
I think they can but apparently, people like Phile need the UN to protect them from the free market, and the Constitution. If they are all living together why can’t they create their own Kwanza style success? What’s stopping them from turning Detroit into a utopia paradise? Because they need white people to create jobs for them?
Moreover, can white people have an emergency meeting about how the US government, through “regional justice” is moving poor blacks into nice white neighborhoods and ruining them? Culturally obliterating them? Why is it that privileged victim groups can live where ever they want but white people can’t.
Who owns the buildings in Philadelphia? Whites? Blacks? Are black landlords reacting to an economic opportunity? Or just white landlords? Because if you own a building you own it, and no one can throw you out if you pay your bills.
Which leads to the mortgage crisis, which forced banks to give bad loans to lousy credit risks and then sued and fined them again for being “predatory” when the bad risks (black people) couldn’t pay their bills.
Do we really want to live like this? Or is this just progressives way of rounding up the black people and keeping them in their historically and culturally significant ghettos. Maybe progressives are smarter than we think.
