if you have a set amount of apartments set aside for affordable housing but it’s not getting done that way. who is in charge of this
Ray Nagin said shhhhhit.
Where are all the “this my block ninjas”.
Yall talk a lot with no action. OK put money in the neighborhood that you don't want to see gentrification on. Ikw in Detroit there neighborhoods that look like ghost towns. In Houston there black neighborhood that have so many empty broke down homes in it that dope heads is using it for sex and crack rooms so if you don't want the white people to buy black neighborhoods do something about it or sit down. Me personally I glad I'm seeing some of these old crack neighborhoods go.

There will be an increase in homelessness. 😔
Gentrification is great thing for the area…
I just don't understand how Gentrification is even POSSIBLE in a city as black as Atlanta and with as many black millionaires as Atlanta. I don't understand why all those millionaires can't combine finances and resources to come up with a way to combat Gentrification and build up certain neighborhoods themselves.
I like this Brother
If y'all ain't from here don't come down here
I hope that he can make it better
YOU WHOLESALERS STOP SELLING OUT THE COMMUNITY AND BUY IN OR MAKE SURE YOU PARTNER WITH BLACK BUYERS
Good question. A lot of people moving to Atl now because they’re being squeezed out of their own city from gentrification. After Atlanta and other cheaper cities.. what’s left?
IRONICALLY THE TRANSPARENCY OF THE AIRBNB BUSINESS MODEL WOULD BE A SOLUTION TO HOUSING DISCRIMINATION AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING

I am not from Atlanta and I haven't heard this guy's other points but yall better listen to at least this. He just gave some jewels that I can guarantee most of the people in Atlanta do not know about in terms of real estate.
Revolt tv is the best
Diddy is the best mogul out here
I dont know what to do about the elderly mentally ill and homeless. However one thing is for sure. It's happening.
So instead of taking it sitting down how about looking at it as an opportunity to be forced to improve yourself.
Oh and stop with the bull excuse. I came from the same hoods and background and story.
Along with an extremely poor education and almost not graduating from high school and a learning disability that I still have.
No I ain't rich however I reached very high. Glory be to God. It's not the highest paying job in the world but it's a job that I dont have to worry about gentrification.
Like I said before I dont have all the answers. I'm just talking to the able minded and able bodied.
Don't sell? They going to in up with nothing! You ever heard of Eminent domain 🙋🏾♂️
This IS A NATIONAL ISSUE Caused By Dozens Of Smaller Pre-existing Issues WE IGNORE/IGNORED & Expect The Others To ADDRESS For US…
P E A C E…
You should have asked him what is he prepared to do to get all the foreigners out of all neighborhoods Mom and pop stores and back in black store owners hands. Get the banks to work with people with little to no in come to open a business and there neighbor
And folks love to hate em, do ya Thang Mayor💯🗣💪🏿✊🏿🖤
What, are they gentrifying the men now? The city been going through gentrification
What about the fire pension you took away mr reed?
here for this convo
When is the Patriot Party Civil Rights March? ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
As black people, we need to learn how to take dignity in our property. Cut the grass, paint the house, fix the broken windows. Gentrify your own property, even in the projects. And I don’t wanna hear that we don’t have the money bcuz those same people in the units have money to buy cigarettes and alcohol every single day. If they were responsible and worthy enough to stay there, they know they have to stop using for a while to get their things in order. This shit has nothing to do with white people. It’s personal responsibility.
Goooooooo Kasim Reed!!!!!!
Kasim 👍🏿 igbo
I had no idea those apartments are supposed to set aside units for low to mid income people. It should be illegal for them to not list those prices!
so this is how it works. Right now the little Westside neighborhoods like Vine City that surround Mercedes Bens all have an affordable property tax clause. When he becomes mayor again, he will do away with it and then people will have to sell because they cannot afford the rising property taxes. Kasim and Keisha did this in Summer Hill. It was done to the Eastside Street Car Suburbs. You force people out by making it to where they can't pay their property taxes and then your developer friends come through. Tell me that new park in Vine City was built for the children already there. Tell me that Westside Beltline Connector is built for the people already living there. Or was all that built to look good to the developers and the people who gonna move there as a result of this next gentrification. Please use your eyes and don't listen to corrupt politicians.
As the former Mayor said…it takes private funds to participate in revitalization and protect long term residents long term interests. He also said “don’t sell”. Too many folk are selling for the quick cash. Black baby boomers are dying and their property and land is being sold far too often.
I urge everyone to use Dr Alaho Olu herbal supplements on YouTube because he cured my HSV 2 and HPV. He cures multiple Fibroids and HIV too…
77% of Americans will be RENT slaves before 2050! Homelessness is going to be off the charts due to greedy corporations buying up ALL properties and the gouging renting them back out for life! Civil War is growing more and more! Blood will spill!
Poor Americans NEED to buy at least 1 acre of land OR you will become a rent slave or homeless and extremely raging mad and start of civil wars between now and 2050 ✴✴✴
FACT: Young People ages 21 to 50 are EXITING the economy because there are no livable wages of $30/Hour and up for all jobs to keep up with insane cost of living! Americans also going off grid due to HOA's and expensive residential properties and property taxes are theft! F U crony capitalism! PAY $30/Hour and up for all jobs, OR let society burn and decay! NO to vaccines, no to strain on the body which leads to health problems and no to abuse at work ❇❇❇
BBB Plan should be:
1. Livable wage permanent laws of $27/Hour and up for all Americans
2. UBI of $3,000/Month for life for the first $36,000/Per Year ( tax free )
3. Locked Down $400/Month per person price! No gouging or gentrification! Developing mostly single unit apartments since privacy is a human right!
4. All three of these points to eradicate poverty, homelessness, suffrage of Americans 📛📛📛
Capitalism = Financial Fascism = parasite criminal system that screws over the poor!Millionaires and billionaires are parasites destroying America and humanity!
We …NEED.. tiny homes that poor Americans can buy working $20/Hour or less! Tiny house structure [[plumbing and electric ]] should be affordable and durable for under $30,000, 1 year of work or less to pay off ♻️♻️♻️
We need more Tiny home communities in Atlanta that are gated of course. But now tiny homes are so high now.
Shoot guns into dirt randomly it will stop gentrification
me trying to move to Ga & rent in low income in Atl & being told by HUD they’re being egregiously gentrified by the rich coming here buying it all up & those from here selling to the rich & bouncing – they’re losing rentals – folks are being grossly upheavaled, displaced & packed into food desserts & extremely dangerous places 😳💔
Other HUD’s don’t answer the phones, don’t return messages, don’t have a voicemail to leave a message… & their offices are closed to the public!
This Is Catastrophic!!!
White people are following us every where and moving in next to us on PURPOSE they trying to push us out all cities and wherever we end up there going to look up and realize there's no black people around and find us where ever we end up and there going to move in and push us outta there. White people are like the youngest child that just want the toy that the oldest child has just because he has it and soon as the oldest moves on to another toy the youngest wants that toy as well
That's funny as hell, acting like Kasim ain't no criminal. 😂
This has been happening for years and it will continue to happen.. it’s all about money and it’s sad that affects so many people..
