Why does no one seem to realize that economic violence is just as devastating as physical violence?

"Gentrification" is a such nice word. Hell, "Gentle" is in it! But let's think about what gentrification means. "I'm kicking you out of your neighborhood, but in a gentlemanly fashion, by buying properties and driving up prices so you can't afford them."

Think about a game of monopoly, but instead of everyone starting with the same resources, your opponent starts with 10 times as much as you, then wonders why you're getting upset because you can't keep up and tut tuts you for raising your voice. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps!
