Do you agree ???

Your luxury is is our displacement
This message is spray painted on the sidewalk just outside the Jefferson st. exit from the L train in Bushwick Brooklyn NY. The author apparently wanted to make sure that none of the hipsters missed it upon exiting the train. Many in the neighborhood agree with this statement? What’s your opinion? Is gentrification the new colonization?

My name is William Chasterson. I’m a writer and a student of history. I was raised in the Midwest of the United States in a very conservative town of about 15,000 people. In my twenties I moved to New York which is where I’ve been for the past 15 years. After the first few years of culture shock I was finally able to settle into my environment and actually consider myself a New Yorker. For the past year however I’ve been living in the third world. I’m not going to mention the name of the country I moved to both for my own safety and because this is not a political blog. The purpose of this blog is to analyze the human psyche and to develop a theory I’ve been slowly formulating my entire life which is that we are all the same. No matter our race, gender, language, or economic status we are all of us equals. While this idea sounds cliche most people’s actions indicate that they don’t really believe it.
