Atlanta's pretty high up on the list of gentrified cities:

This started as something that has so much potential... While gentrification is a problem, running around telling people to give up their homes & open their wallets is going to harm the basic tenants of the movement.
I'm not black - so maybe I'm wrong.

It is absolutely necessary to protest police brutality & murder. To fight the system. But this ain't it. This is going to harden people who are on their side to them. It's going to turn people against them.

according to the article, this was a protest by "dozens" of people.

this is nothing more than "those black people are coming to take your stuff" click bait

True - but millions of people read this crap. And the photos are also misleading - the bottom one shows 100s. It is the post, so...
tbh - it is absolutely exhausting to have to fact check every single news article that comes out. Read 10-15 articles, then you have to read 30 more and watch videos to double check every one.

yeah, fortunes have been made over the past several decades by media companies posting this type of crap showing all of the bad things that "the blacks" do.

this is nothing new.

I live in a a metro area that is 65% black and not once has anyone marched around yelling about white people giving up their homes.

More boogeyman click-bait to scare people.
