- Chicago Resident Asks For White People To Gentrify Their Park So Officials Will Keep It Clean

It’s a shame that residents in the Hermosa neighborhood of Chicago have a large park that is not being maintained by the city. Someone in the largely Latino populated neighborhood feels the only way to get the city clean and pay attention to the park is to have white people play in it.

A http://www.reddit.com/r/chicago/comments/2c9bry/wanted_at_kelvyn_park/" rel="nofollow - Reddit user posted the above photo they found during visit to the park. Clearly, someone realizes that if the park is gentrified then the city will take care of it.

“With the direction of gentrification towards that area, they’ll get their wish soon,” one person wrote in the comments section.

Kelvyn Park sits on 8.5 acres and includes a  field house, with a fitness center, auditorium, meeting rooms and a small kitchen. It also includes tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields. But is currently in disarray.

Someone find some white people fast. Just like Spike Lee said, it’s not until white people move into an area that a city wants to make the resources more viable.

Haha!  I remember the Lincoln Park neighborhood back in the 80s.  Straight up seedy.  Fast forward to 2014 and you have $2,000,000 single family homes and $600,000 condos.  Sad to say, but this guy has a point. He should be warned, once gentrification starts, the poor better understand they need to start packing since it will only be a matter of time before they can no longer afford to live there. Unhappy

 
Just ask the folks living in Williamsburg Brooklyn...

We all pay taxes to the Government so we all deserve Government services

Exactly. This isn't city vs. suburb. The park district is clearly funneling money to the clear parts of the city and neglecting the brown parts. Probably because they've gotten away with it so long and people have been scared to speak out.

I'm sure city officials feel obligated to keeping up the White parts of the town because it's usually the White pockets that fund their campaigns

Black people can't appeal to the moral (or legal) senses of anybody White or anyone who gets paid by the Government in an effort to make serious long-term changes for our community

We must power ourselves economically, first, and then buy our interests like everyone else does

I'm tired of complaining about how unfair this system is
If you can't beat it... f*cking join it

We need to seriously stop voting for corrupt black Politicians . Look at Detroit for example . The mayor and his gang stole every dime for parks in black neighborhoods . White folks like a nice park , but they will steal the soccer /baseball funds from children.

I will read the article after dinner . I say let the white folks donate to fix the parks with a iron clad contract . You can't built nothing on the land after the fact . My husband and a few friends cut grass for free in disadvantage black children parks . I have a savings plan to purchase new swings . I may reach my goal soon .

I agree with the fact that if its public then public funds should go to support it, but at the same time everyday people have to care about their own parks and areas.. No one has a bigger investment than the people who live there

You went right over my head . Who is perfect ? I know a few white people that actually care and will give from the heart , without expecting anything in return By the way .

I could buy the park if anyone attempts to take it since you said "I could kiss it goodbye" ? I try to find the good in all people . Do I trust white folk ? Not really , but I refuse to hate all . That would make me no different .

I agree we need to do more as a people . My white co workers contribute to my park fund without question nature . My park area is historical and white money can't touch it .

I want go into detail about my personal efforts to make sure . I am blessed to have lived over 50 years . I know a little bit on how things work after living most of it related to the topic . We are doing better . I work at the park with people 16 to 70 that care about the neighborhood . I continue to learn as time change . Do you visit,help or live near poor neighborhoods ?

My parents made sure and our work continues . I am not some wealthy woman , but I use what I have to make a difference like many people with less . No one is waiting on white folks , at least in my circle from the poor to the rich .

What is happening here is you have two parks for example, in the same city where all are contributing to the same pot of taxes. In the part of the city where whites live the government is maintaining the parks, in the brown areas the parks are being neglected by the government or not being shown the same level of care. Given this situation the best you can come up with is that blacks need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and clean their own park?

I think you missed my point. I was giving you kudos for actually making an effort in your own community.

And for White people I was referring to the OP topic of pleading for gentrification. When I said "KISS IT GOOD BYE" is what I think it means for any primary non-white community. All I was saying is people need to start where they are and not depend on someone else to solve issues they can make an effort towards themselves.
