The Whitest City in America

Starbucks-Comes-To-DyckmanPortland, where I grew up, and where I will soon return, has lately been in the news as the “Whitest City in America.” It’s also one of the most rapidly gentrifying. OregonLive, aka the Oregonian, recently reported on how minority communities are doing.

One thought on “The Whitest City in America”

  1. Maybe some of that is due to it getting so bloody expensive to buy a home. Liveable homes are getting bought up, torn down and replaced by tax cash cows that disrupt the architectural aesthetic of neighborhoods and drive out low and middle income families. Reminds me of the posters we used to see back in the sixties ” Don’t Californicate Oregon”…well, it’s happening.
