  • And before Regina Hall was born: it was Vanilla City until white flight turned it to Chocolate City. History just repeats itself. Need to focus on the ECONOMIC factors of gentrification, not the color. That's what they want us to do: fight amongst eachother, all colors: to divide & conquer WE THE PPL, ALL oppressed AMERICANS. ✊👊✋⚠⏰⏳🌎

  • But Regina know what's up she's friends with Muriel Bowser.. I'm sure she knew about gentrification before it happend.
