    Especially here in SA. I've noticed a big trend in rising property value in the last decade while income here hasn't really risen much. I think there's a breaking point coming soon.

    As downtown SA "re-urbanizes", but of course remains behind the other 3 TX cities :

    “If you are born into a poor family and in a bad neighborhood with horrible schools do your best to climb out of it. Look what I did (list of accomplishments including homeschooling). Look what José Extraordinary did. We made it dammit. It’s your choice.”

    The uneven results of an economy that only really benefits the rich is going to make democratic socialist ideas waaay easier to sell.

    but muh free markets sounds thinner and thinner when you slave to make profits for the CEO, and can't pay your rent.

    ZIP codes where people of color make up the majority of the population are more likely to make less than the statewide median income and to pay too much in rent.

    ZIP codes where most residents are white




    Shocker... FWIW.

    Gentrification isn't helping.
