Gentrification, Displacement, and Neighborhood Revitalization

By J. John Palen; Bruce London | Go to book overview

Federal budgets for much-needed services, together with tax cuts for corporate capital, this justification no longer sounds plausible. Equally implausible is the sentiment expressed in the HUD displacement report, that gentrification "offers a unique opportunity to encourage the development of neighborhoods that are integrated both racially and economically" ( 1979, p. i). Viewed in the light of the real experience of working-class communities facing the threat of gentrification, this statement is less naive than it is cynical. For working-class communities, it is not a question of how to integrate the white upper middle class, but rather of how to organize to prevent the systematic theft and destruction of their community.
