Here is a except from this article I found the most important to point out:

Why have liberal views of people of color, LGBT people, women, etc. changed over the past 50 years, but conservative views (supposedly) haven’t?
The answer liberal whites usually gravitate to is “we are good people!” That’s the underlying message of so much white activism — we are good people, and we must destroy the bad people!!!!! However, I think people are people, and no one’s innately “better” than anyone else. I think liberal views changed because they were rewarded for changing their views. Educated people who were functioning, primarily, in the world economy were the beneficiaries of globalism. They were the winners of the internationalization of trade. Believing in equality is part of appearing educated; white liberals benefit more from education privilege now than white privilege (or, than overt white privilege — structural white privilege still in tact) but non college grads were the ones who absorbed the downsides of globalism.
America is filled with ghost towns of the working class communities whose manufacturing/mining/etc. jobs all evaporated. People’s communities got destroyed, and if they’re white, they have no power left except the power of white privilege. If they had something better, I’m sure they’d take it, because the privileges granted through racism are fucking ugly, but they don’t.
And, rural white people aren’t the only people losing their community and resenting people from “other cultures.” The historically latino population of the mission in SF is kind of super not down with the white gentrifiers. I see all sorts of “anti-colonial” and “anti-white” graffiti in the mission. Talk about awkward! Racial tensions due to gentrification are cropping up all over the US. However, unlike the rural white, these people don’t have any sort of existing racial privilege to leverage in an effort to save their communities.
But, white liberals are fucking killing it! We get to look “not racist” by memorizing the right group-speak, but still get to destroy all these nice communities with impunity! Yes, yessssss — keep hating the racist Trump voters. THEY’re the ones you have to worry about.

Read the entire article below, for those in communities who have experienced this or currently am this is one you’d appreciate most definitely.

Gentrification and Ghost Towns” 

Since this article touches on the streets I see daily here are some photos to compliment the mood. Since folks now have to be shown to believe things. There is lots of this in our alleys especially Clarion…

Clarion alley, just steps from me. If i take a picture​ of this same alley 2 am this is home to many evicted Mission residents

Even Banksy leaves his mark here

If anyone knows where this is, then you know this same street is lined with tents now housing all those evictees. The upper class just steps away doing nothing much to help. Besides writing letters to the city complaining about the homeless ‘scum’ they feel like they shouldn’t have to walk past on their way to and from work. It’s sad they don’t realize they helped to create these so called scum; gentrification has its price unfortunately the low income and poor are the class that pays the most everytime! And more times than not with our lives…

Another Banksy PSA

One of the many side walk artworks you will find

With more than 7,000 homeless currently many can answer yes

Yes, this did really happen. Along with alot of ‘accidental’ fires leaving entire families homeless. I don’t think they are all accidentally started but that’s my opinion for many reasons.

Pictures have 1000 words, pay attention

Less artistic, just anger but holds some validity

What we lose…

INDEPENDENCE, CA - DECEMBER 09:  PA vintage photograph is displayed at Manzanar War Relocation Center at Manzanar National Historic Site on December 9, 2015 near Independence, California. Recent presidential campaign rhetoric against Muslims in the wake of terror attacks has drawn comparisons to World War II era incarceration of Japanese Americans. Manzanar War Relocation Center was one of ten internment camps where Japanese American citizens and resident Japanese aliens were incarcerated from 1942 to 1945 during World War II.

Carl Higbie: I know the ACLU is going to challenge it, and we’ve done it in the past with Iran back … back a while ago. We did it World War II with Japanese. Which, you know, call it what you will. May be wrong.

Megyn Kelly: Come on. You’re not proposing we go back to the days of internment camps, I hope. That’s the kind of stuff that gets people scared. …

Higbie: I’m just saying there is precident for it. I’m not saying I agree with it. But in this case—

Kelly: You can’t be citing Japanese internment camps as precedent for anything the president-elect is going to do.

Sure he can. He just did.

PLEASE WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!

I have said this and people said I was paranoid and that he did not have the power to do this in this day and age. You all need to read more into the powers of what this man can really do with the executive orders that he will have access to. We need to rise up and protect ourselves before it is too late. We were complacent and let this hatred get too close to the white house now we only have a short period of time to stop this madness before all hell breaks lose and so many innocent lives are destroyed. This is a country of freedom in so many ways and right now that freedom is under attack on the home front and it seems as if our own soldiers are doing NOTHING to protect us and soon they will be obligated to turn against us which scares me so much more! What do we do when they are forced to rise against us? Who will save us? Will our allies come from across the seas like the many times we have stepped in for them in times of need? We need to treat homeland terrorist groups like these the same as we treat groups like Isis, there should be NO double standards based on skin color. We are all human beings and all bleed the same way and all breathe the same way therefore the president in his last day should put the military on red alert and seek out these groups and suppress them immediately!!!!

I beg of you all do the right thing please share this post with as many people as you can the truth needs to get out there!
