"Everyone makes fun of that guy who was trying to get a law passed to stop all of these neighborhood name changes, but he had a point. All of this name-changing stuff is nothing more than psychological warfare on the part of gentrifiers. When you want to lay exclusive claim to territory that people already inhabit, what's one of the best ways to do that? You rename it, so it eventually becomes *your neighborhood* and not those of the people who've been living and working there for years."?wwworldclique [Welcome to Chibeca?Rich Poor Fancy Industrial New 'Hood]
