Why is it not a bad thing when an area that was previously largely ignored (or outright oppressed) by the city/state, with poc communities left to fend for themselves improves only when a bunch of white people come in and take shit over? Fucked up schools, parks, roads, public safety, unchecked buldings all that changes once white people set foot on it. Prices on everything goes up (but it’s all good they can afford it and even have better chances of getting hired in the area than the ppl who live in it cause white = success), the poor poc who were being neglected are pushed out so white folks can move in and “give value” to the area now that those disenfranchised broke asses got kicked out.
Sure if you’re white you don’t give a fuck since you’re the one kicking out the original inhabitants, yall got a place to cozy up in. The place the poor folks kept warm.

“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”—The Little Prince. (via larebellefleur)
“Nothing goes perfectly for us. But… being incomplete is what pushes us onward to the next something… If we were even perfectly satisfied, what meaning would the rest of our lives hold, right?”—Takehiko Inoue (via youreactuallyoneworldaway)
“I was always an unusual girl.
My mother told me I had a chameleon soul, no moral compass pointing due north, no fixed personality; just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean.”—Lana Del Rey (via quotes-shape-us)
And I wonder When I sing along with you If everything could ever feel this real forever If anything could ever be this good again The only thing I’ll ever ask of you You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang
“So called ‘late-bloomers’ get a bad rap. Sometimes the people with the greatest potential often take the longest to find their path because their sensitivity is a double edged sword- it lives at the heart of their brilliance, but it also makes them more susceptible to life’s pains. Good thing we aren’t being penalized for handing in our purpose late. The soul doesn’t know a thing about deadlines.”—Jeff Brown (via artieshaw)
