Why is gentrification bad but diversity is good ? One group improves an area and is bad and another group degrades an area is good ?

    It depends to whom you are talking.  Liberals tout diversity and condemn gentrification.  Conservatives welcome gentrification and ignore diversity.  The difference is between emotional thinking and objective thinking.  The liberal's emotional thinking considers only the feelings of those affected.  The conservative sees rising property values, less crime, and more tax revenue.

    Gentrification means you expell the poor who have no alternatives, and replace them by rich people that you lure away from other places.

    It doesn't solve the real problem; runaway income disparity
