What is the difference between a demographic change or shift and gentrification? Is either xenophobic, or do the terms migrate depending on whom is discussing either? Do demographics speak only of skin color or cultural background? How is gentrification bad? Often times, the two terms are never discussed in the same conversation, is that by design or does simple ignorance come into play.
They say that the white majority will be the majority minority by 2040, yet, I thought we were all simple humans. At what point did we decide that the shape of an eye or the shade of a person’s skin would dictate their existence for eternity. Is there a difference in the races? If so, what is the difference between race and ethnicity? If you look on an application, there are many boxes that one must check to signify their identity. Yet, when it comes to ethnicity, more often than not, the two available choices are “Hispanic Latino” or “Not Hispanic Latino” . Yet white, African American, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, are the other choices, apparently have no ethnicity available to choose from. Why is that?
Is it considered racist to discuss demographics? Is gentrification a crime against human rights? With all of the tribes and civilizations throughout history, how is xenophobia even a thing? Obviously, if the Neanderthals were a true race of people, who is guilty of killing them off or breeding them out of existence? What people were killed off by the Native Americans during their invasion?
It would be ignorant to somehow allow only certain peoples to escape their ancestors obvious brutal past, yet it happens everyday, from classrooms to boardrooms. The willful ignorance of the politically correct (PC) state, enables and promotes this rewriting of history, on both the left and the right. To suggest that PC is only peddled by the left is insanity. The right continues this hogwash just as well. All of us are culpable, yet it’s always someone else, or something else that we try to hide behind. Two wrongs don’t make a right, yet the excuse of hyperbole and spin only continue to provoke the idea of property and belonging.
Who owns whom or who belongs there or here? Casting stones and reciting myth to solidify a stance does nothing for nobody. It only weakens humanity everywhere.
