Its No Longer About ‘Getting Out The Hood’….

True indeed!

NEW RULE: “Its no longer about ‘getting out the hood’. It’s about buying up the hood and making it a decent place to live.” ~ Deric Muhammad

Deric offered this snippet and I think he has a big point. For yeas the hood has been gentrifying and blacks have been being pushed out because of the source of the gentrification. Surely if the improvements came from within and the intention was the stay then the change can come from within?

What do you think?
