    Another insightful episode. A great conversation starter. In regards to gentrification, it is a very real phenomenon. Anyone denying its existence is being willfully ignorant. I live in a very different Harlem than the Harlem in which I grew up. The bigger issue I have with white people living in Harlem (driving up the prices of everything & moving out local business & residents who have been in the area for generations) is that they come up here & act like we (the native Harlemites) are invading their space. Like, ‘I’m trying to get my super hip trendy coffee from this newage indie cafe that used to be the number spot & these niggers are in my way!’ So I’ll say what everyone else is too PC to say, they are NOT welcome. We do NOT want them here. But the fact is they’re here & they aren’t going to leave unless there’s another crack epidemic or something equally devastating to the community. But I digress. Great podcast guys!
