So, I can love and respect my gay neighbor, but if I privately disapprove of his/her lifestyle, I'm fair game to be hated and excoriated by others for that belief. Got it. Thank you.
The Eastside only started being inhabited by Campbell's "urban Gullahs" in the mid-20th century. That part of Town used to be full of warehouses, factories, rail yards, etc. Eventually houses and neighborhoods popped up, mostly owned and rented by German, Irish, Jewish, and other immigrants. Over time, those houses changed hands and became predominantly black owned or occupied. It was just the result of common trends all around the country. Any historically significant African presence there might have been a march or sit-in during the Civil Rights Era. All the area has to show for it now is poverty, dilipidation, crime, and - FINALLY - some redevelopment. This is not racist at all. ANYBODY can 'gentrify' his/her neighborhood, regardless of race or religion or blah blah blah.
Oh. There's also that Memorial Day holiday thing.
More entitled? You want to see a school district crash and burn? Wow, pretty strong remarks from someone with children of her own.
Wow. Another hipster bar in the Neck! I'll stick to Moe's and Biggie's. Actually, fuck that. I'm going to Red Drum.
