The Plan?

March 6th, 2008

So, viagra usa malady listening to NPR‘s This American Life, cialis generic I heard about “The Plan“: 

“American cities have gone through a massive wave of gentrification in the last few decades. To some people, it’s not a natural ebb and flow of the real estate market, but a plot, by rich, mainly white people, to take over the neighborhoods of poor, mainly black people. This American Life producer Jon Jeter reports on how, in neighborhoods all over the country, the plot has a name, “The Plan,” and most people you talk to know about it.”  

Now, I’m really confused.

Which am I supposed to feel guilty about: white flight or gentrification?

(As a side note: why am I never invited to the White Person Conspiracy meetings? Did I forget to pay my dues or something?)

    Damn it if you do not come to the meeting how will you know the secret password they will say over the radio when they want us to start rounding up nonwhite people? come on Elliot it is all part of “the plan” ;)

    Lets get with the program son or you risk being left behind when we white folks occupy and turn into a little slice of heaven the North Side of Milwaukee ;) lol

    This reminds me of the SNL skit where Eddie Murphy pretended to be white and when their were no black people around they started handing out money to all the white folks etc lol

    LOL.
    Around here the neighborhoods are being taken over by Spanish speakers.

    Your Q: As a side note: why am I never invited to the White Person Conspiracy meetings?

    Answer: The White Person Conspiracy has been going on at least since the Dutch first set up shop in West Africa. You’ve been at that meeting a long time, but you’ve been asleep.

    Yes Otherman, all white folks are evil crackers just bent on wiping out anyone who is not white. Every white person who has ever lived is guilty of the crime of being white.

    Then you wonder why silliness like people believing in something called “the plan” happens Elliot

    Its people who think like Otherman who perpetuate myths like “the Plan”
