Re: “It's hip, it's getting safer, and the rent is going up in Charleston's Eastside

Micah Blaise, I really hope you are not as misinformed as you sound in your comment above. At no point does the article state that "the systematic removal of low-income folks of color [is making] the community safer."

Here are the facts: The community IS getting safer (look at local crime statistics) and the demographic profile of the community IS changing (look at census information), but correlation does NOT imply causation (i.e. just because African Americans are moving out of the Eastside does NOT mean that this is why crime rates are decreasing). The only person who made that erroneous conclusion on this page was you.

So please, for everyone's benefit, stop looking for racism where there is none and stop trying to make something out of nothing. If you would have actually read and thought about the article before jumping the gun and posting that ridiculous and irrelevant comment, you would have realized that the article is not about race at all.
