Re: “John Little and Other Developers Are Gentrifying Durham’s East End. They’re Not About to Apologize.

These are people who just like Trump would have called Durham a shit hole 10 years ago. They are white supremacists to me and I think the Confederate's would be proud of them pushing out black families.

Re: “For Two Decades, Durham’s East End Neighborhood Hosted Horseshoe Matches With No Complaints. Then the Developers Came.

Re: “Runoff for Raleigh Mayor's Post May Be Ahead as Francis Denies McFarlane a Majority of Votes

@willyg "I support affordable housing but you can't abandon the rest of the city to do it" I think you mean to say that you can't abandon rich white folks who care more about bike lanes than homeless veterans. Which results in a city council that will spend $50 million on turning dix into a park, or will spend millions on "urbanized" bike lanes than they will spend on mental health. These people in our city council would move the central prison if it meant putting condos there. Because they are white supremacists who do not care for the majority of people who live in raleigh. Your comment sounds very familiar to what is posted on brietbart in regards to how you will defend modern day slave owners. That is what is truly sad. And I was at Francis's meetings. Just like I was at the moore square meeting in '13 where racist developers who are just as bad as Trump said "we need more of our people here" I was there in '11 when the "progressive" MacFarlane revoked the space occupy raleigh was using down town because she was afraid if she gave them a space then another group who is "not as polite" would ask for the same rights. I was there eariler this year when developers talked about shutting down Rachel's tarot store near maywood because it does not "fit the character" of what they want Maywood to be. In other words it was not white enough for them. I have seen this racism be supported by MacFarlane and bonner gaylord. And I think it's disgusting. I hope that forbes rank helps these people who ignore what is right in front of them sleep at night. Because inequality will only go up. And it's become obvious that Indy Week does not care for objective journalism that serves all of raleigh. That is what is sad.

Re: “Batalá Durham's Central Park Standoff with Liberty Warehouse Residents Is Gentrification in Motion

Why can't these people just move back to the suburbs where they belong?

Re: “Study: Women in Wake County See Wage Gap Worse Than in Austin or Boston

But based on what this data shows, it looks like Wake County doesn't care about women that much, if it did this wage gap would not exist. I mean are we surprised? They don't care about poor old women who live in those Sir Walter Raleigh Apartments, I just don't get how our city leadership doesn't get called sexist when I see stats like this. And they are related because it's a way of saying "look at how progressive we are because we put some sign up in our yard" Even though they don't really care about the people they say they do. If they did, they would boycott businesses like Watts and Ward that is setup where a battered women's shelter used to be at. But I guess it's easier to just say nice things, than to take real action.
