Spike Lee Goes on a Rant about Gentrification in NYC!

Published February 27, 2014 by sheezacoldpiece


Spike Lee, famed director and film maker is no fan of gentrification taking place in NYC. During a discussion that recently took place at Platt University, the renowned film maker spared no expletives sharing his view on what’s taking place in NYC, calling gentrification a “scam”. For those who don’t know what gentrification is, it’s when the demographic of a particular neighborhood/area is changed and redesigned to favor the wealthy, thus driving out the poor by increasing many things such as rents, home prices (values), etc.

Listen to Spike discuss and cuss about it here:

I Love Spike!
