D2 as a native whose parents were immigrants (pretty penniless to boot), the issue is not with newcomers but the fact that through a confluence of factors that the city has largely become unaffordable to those who gave it its special character. It's no one's fault exactly, but those who don't remember this place when it was full of middle class families not pushed to the far reaches of eastern Queens and south Brooklyn will not mourn the loss of a city that wasn't just full of Duane Reades, luxury condos, and "chic" try hard bars the way we do. An immigrant today would be hard pressed to replicate the experience that my parents had in the 80s - cuny tuition under 10k, apartments for $100k, and different stores on every block. Even when I graduated college in 2009 a 2 bedroom on Bedford Ave went for $1500.

Why do you need to make the comparison if you're just trying to say that the OP is wrong for singling out white people? Do you have no better defense? (Sayyy, that gentrifiers can be any wealthy people at all, and that everyone in NYC is a gentrifier if they can still afford to live there, etc) Why don't you make good arguments? Why does your mind go to hypocrisy because "if it were black people, everyone would care about the racism" which is 1) not true and 2) irrelevant, transparent, and obnoxious

Hi ladies, I need some advice on how to navigate/build a relationship with my fiance's family. Some of his siblings and family members are very standoffish and distant. For background, we are same race different culture. I'm very open and I've learned a lot from my fiance over the years. However, I believe his family still sees me as an outsider and they don't invite me to certain things. At times, it feels isolating and it makes me feel unwelcomed. They're also supposed to be in my wedding.
