Mayor Sam's Free "Free Market" Lessons
Free "Free Market" lesson number two for the pueblos: Big bogeymen coming to Los Feliz and Leimert Park upgrading properties and raising rents. In primarily African-American Leimert Park, racism rears it's ugly head because - gasp - upwardly mobile Caucasians and Hispanics are taking the place of middle class blacks who moved to the suburbs. Over in Los Feliz Satanic, I mean "corporate" interests are raising rents on the ever successful businesses there, well, uh, because they can. Why can they? More people are interested in starting businesses in Los Feliz than space is available for.
In the old days, these were good things.
