Spike Lee is speaking truth here. I have so many conflicting thoughts about all the gentrification going on so many cities. Seeing it in Houston is a trip. Midtown was neglected for years, but now it’s an oasis of cute cafes & condos. The same is happening in 3rd Ward. And while I admittedly enjoy coffee shops, bookstores, & safe streets, I detest the message that gentrification sends: That our communities aren’t worth investment until tons of young wealthy hipsters move in.
