The problem with this argument is that we're assuming a group of people are inherently static to their financial disposition.

"Poor" isn't supposed to be a way of life. "Driving out the poor" is a negative connotation from the extreme left and no one else. No one is trying to drive out the poor. The poor need incentives, opportunity and intelligent people around them to enhance their understanding of success - and yes - eventually become a "yuppie". A yuppie who would then help raise a healthy, intelligent, self-reflecting community.

If James St. was experiencing gentrification, I would accept that as a positive sign.
