PLEASE YES.

I don’t see how bringing up the property value in a neihborhood and slowly easing out the unsavory is bad. But thats just me. Perhaps I’m jaded.

Gentrification isn’t just bringing up property value in a neighborhood and “slowly easing out the unsavory”. What do you even mean by that? Do you mean poor people? Because that is who is getting effected by it the most and that includes me and many people I know. We should be able to live where we want to. Rent has doubled and tripled in many parts of Brooklyn because of upper middle class and upper class people moving in and pushing us out without any remorse or guilt. What makes their coffee shops and boutiques better than the bodegas and 99 cent stores? They are small businesses too. The value of a neighborhood SHOULD NEVER be determined by what class of people live in it. We are not unsavory. We belong here.

Definitely heard this while in NYC

Yo he sufrido tanto por tu ausenciaQue desde ese dia hasta hoy no soy felizY aunque tengo tranquila mi concienciaSe que pude haber yo hecho mas por tiObscura soledad estoy viviendo la misma soledad de tu sepulcroTu eres el amor del cual yo tengo el mas triste recuerdo de acapulcoComo quisiera ayy que tu vivierasQue tus ojitos jamas se hubieran cerrados nunca y estar mirandolos

Yo he sufrido tanto por tu ausencia
Que desde ese dia hasta hoy no soy feliz
Y aunque tengo tranquila mi conciencia
Se que pude haber yo hecho mas por ti
Obscura soledad estoy viviendo la misma soledad de tu sepulcro
Tu eres el amor del cual yo tengo el mas triste recuerdo de acapulco
Como quisiera ayy que tu vivieras
Que tus ojitos jamas se hubieran cerrados nunca y estar mirandolos

I’m thinking constantly about myself and death and life and sadness, but above all love. Because I’m learning that it’s through acts of love that we experience everything else.

Abuse of undocumented women:

"Look, here’s what I can tell you. It is such a stain on the workforce of America that I just suggest that the next time you’re drinking that Chardonnay, remember who may have picked those grapes, and that lettuce, tomato you’re having with strawberry on the side, remember, because unfortunately, we’re all participants in our own consumption of the brutality in the workforce that these women confront. It’s happening. And I simply suggest, believe the women. They’re telling the truth"

-U.S Representative Luis Gutierrez
