https://www.bittermedicineblogs.com – On today’s show we discuss Gentrification. Gentrification is a white way of saying Ethnic Cleansing and Genocide. We begin the conversation with a discussion of recent events where 2 Philadelphia Black men were arrested in a Starbucks for being black.
In case you don’t know: Places like Starbucks, Whole Foods, and Trader Joes stores are heralds for gentrification. By the time you see one of these stores pop-up in your neighborhood, it’s no longer yours.
Ethnic cleansing is an attempt to get rid of members of an unwanted ethnic/racial group to establish an ethnically/racially homogenous geographic area. Genocide is intent on physical destruction of racial groups. The two often go hand in hand and, for us, are one in the same.
We go through the ten (10) stages of genocide then apply them, as a case study of sorts, to the climate of Ferguson, Missouri around the time of Mike Brown’s murder at the hands of the KKKop, Darren Wilson.
