Nope - wrong.

The city 'gentrifies' a place with money.It's from investors and [eople are not going to invest in an area that's jusy gonna get run down again because the folks that live there don't give a ddarn.

It's not for free... if the Black folks in the hood could afford to fix up the areas ... there would be no problems.

Spike Lee just wants the ghetto to stay the ghetto so that black folks can stay in the ghetto and not amount anything.

Why doesn't he use HIS millions to bring money into the hood so that it can be a nice place for black folks to live.

Somebody's gotta pay.

What did he think was going to happen, they were bound to add lofts, coffee houses and artsy places after the basketball team moved there. Its like that all over the US, the Detroit Pistons arena is not even in Detroit, and in Charlotte the only time I see a bunch of police officers downtown is when its a basketball game or when Katy Perry is doing a concert.

They even shoo away the homeless when its yt events by the transit center, any other time its cool for them to panhandle and hangout down there.

Anthony Mackie Accuses Spike Lee Of “Reverse Gentrification” After Moving On Up To The Upper East Side!

Spike Lee doesn’t even live in Brooklyn anymore!

Anthony Mackie Accuses Spike Lee Of Reverse Gentrification

Via NewsOne reports:

Actor Anthony Mackie questioned the sincerity of renowned filmmaker Spike Lee‘s concern over gentrification in Brooklyn, pointing out that the Red Hook director no longer even lives in the borough.

In a sit-down interview with The Grio’s Chris Witherspoon, Mackie said that Lee’s escape to Manhattan’s Upper East Side is a form of “reverse gentrification” and ”as your tax brackets changes, I guess your zip code changes.”

Mackie then goes on to suggest that he’s more Brooklyn than Lee:

“I live in Brooklyn. My address is in Brooklyn. I have two restaurants in Brooklyn. I don’t have a problem with gentrification. The people [who] want to live in Brooklyn, move to Brooklyn.”

Mackie starred in two Spike Lee joints early in his career, She Hate Me (2004), and Sucker Free City.

Spike Lee, a long-time, outspoken critic of the whitewashing of his beloved Brooklyn, went on an epic, expletive-laden rant.

Here’s the thing: I grew up here in Fort Greene. I grew up here in New York. It’s changed. And why does it take an influx of white New Yorkers in the South Bronx, in Harlem, in Bed Stuy, in Crown Heights for the facilities to get better? The garbage wasn’t picked up every motherf*ckin’ day when I was living in 165 Washington Park. P.S. 20 was not good. P.S. 11. Rothschild 294. The police weren’t around. When you see white mothers pushing their babies in strollers, three o’clock in the morning on 125th Street, that must tell you something.

For Spike Lee to be guilty of reverse Gentrification would require him to somehow force the white people in Manhattan to move out, police allow drugs and crime to take over, drop the property value, then black people purchase said properties, move in, police drives the crime out, and the property value would go back up. That would be REVERSE Gentrification.

Do you think Mackie has a point?

Did Anthony Mackie even think about what reverse gentrification would even mean/be? Wtf is he talking about? You can't care about what's happening and speak up just because you aren't there?
