It starts with a single Starbucks opening on your block
then some white people with dreadlocks are walking their vegan-fed dogs in your community park
next thing you know you can’t afford to eat out for dinner in your own neighborhood because all the the shops you know have been replaced by trendy bars filled with upper middle class white hipsters that voted for obama both times
finally you notice that people you know, the people you grew up with, are disappearing from your neighborhood and you suddenly realize that they can’t afford to live here anymore.
and amid all the new condos and fusion restaurants and yoga studios and all the white people jogging in the winter cold at 5 in the damn morning you ask yaself…
where did all my brown people go?
