Gentrification and ingroup preference [Video]

[By Ben Noble]

Serious question. I’ve seen people say that poor communities should be invested in to increase economic opportunity. This lady opens a nice bar in a poor area to serve the community. Then people complain about gentrification and “erasing” their culture. I understand that people might not like the decor and drink options the owner has chosen, but why complain about a business moving into their area? Just don’t go to the bar.

The people in the video voicing a concern about “erasing” their culture sound exactly like the white nationalists.
