I wonder if any of the others actually listen to what Mikey is saying. Judging by this picture, I'd say no.




Looks like a screengrab from a SOVRN video where Mikey's getting kicked out of the spot.

It's somewhat difficult to get into dental school, you have to be smart enough to handle the pre-requisite courses.

Mikey Taylor would be the owner of a few cryotherapy/reiki massage joints.

I'm a bitch and don't want to get personally involved in this but would be kinda funny if someone alerted the anti-gentrification groups of this.

South Central right now is pretty gnarly with this. Literally every corner there's "We'll buy your house for cash" signs. Plenty of people have bit and sold now everyone is moving out and people that are renting have slowly been forced to move more east. It has however made the neighborhood a bit less dangerous it seems. Its bittersweet to say the least.

Same thing is still happening in Culver City. Heavy development in a hood that was family owned 5 years ago. I'll check out that insta. I love kicking back at real estate investors.

Living in Culver now..
It's insane to see $3500 a month studios, but a block down Venice I would be scared to walk alone at night.
It's getting impossible to find anything affordable west of downtown now days, and downtown is just as bad.

That being said, I would love to invest in Mikey's company if that meant I can make money from not doing anything.

Something has to give here. I feel there has to be a massive debt crash coming in the next 20 years. I don't understand how the real estate market has climbed to such insane heights when wages still suck and we are being saddled with more and more student loan debt. The median household income for California is 64K per year (household is such a weird term since it could mean a single person, two married people, a whole family, a retired person, etc.). Shit even more amazingly, the median household income for LA county is 57K per year. How in the fuck is a household paying 3K for rent when they can't be taking home more than $3,300 each month? How are they paying for a car, which AAA estimates at an average monthly cost of $700 each month?

I honestly don't get it. I got lucky and I have a decent job, but I live in a shithole, I walk from point A to point B in a city "where you need a car," and I can barely put a few dollars in the bank each month. How are other people affording 3K for rent, a car, going out for drinks, new clothing, the doctor, dentist, etc.? What am I missing here?

I'm in the northeast and it's happening here as much as anywhere else. From what I've heard the Boyle Heights protestors are particularly confrontational bc of what they've already seen happen to other neighborhoods on the eastside.

That is a scary thought.

It seems that our grandparents were born in poverty but died in wealth, and we were born into wealth but we will die in poverty.

To some extent it has already started (https://jacobinmag.com/2018/09/senior-citizens-bankruptcy-austerity-social-security).

The thing with gentrification in south central right now is sellers are getting greedy. They only want to buy low and quickly sell as high as they can which right now the average 3 bedroom normal house thatís been remodeled is going for between 500-650k. Thereís a couple of listings that are going beyond that but are staying on the market for a lot longer or they eventually drop the price because the area isnít technically gentrified yet, itís still the hood.

Also Iím married which makes just normal living in LA a lot more doable with a second income. I still have friends that stay with their parents because they simply canít get a job on their own that pays enough for a place, plus bills, and transportation. Itís honestly insane, at this point you need to make pretty much over 100k to live a normal comfortable life with kids here. Itís unfortunately inevitable, you have to adapt or get lost.

I live in Orange County,cities all over me that used to be shit are getting gentrified or have been. Downtown Santa Ana has been a major one the last ten years,but theres still one of largest homeless communities right down from all the hip and chic.

I'm knocking on wood paying my cheapish rent,at least for the area. Yet with all the concerns you have and pointed out Monkey I feep the same,it's a bitch keeping up with the Jones' and even if you don't want to, it's how one basically survives out here.

I have a good chunk of family in South Central, they either live in the ghetto acting the same, but put on a front for the  cousins that live with their parents,yet have a glamorus lifestyle with a newer car and trendy ass clothes. Some of them have kids and they're still mysteriously living this awesome life,  while I'm cashing in change to gas. Hence why I said credit cards Lurper. If you can swipe it you can't front it...for a little bit haha.

It sucks to believe all those articles saying 'Millenials don't have retirement' but judging by how I see people getting by it's true for the most part. I have only a few friends with jobs that include a pension or 401k type plan. Everyone else just spends til' they're dead,and that used to be me but now Im saving,finally.

Also there is reverse white flight where for half a century America was this anomaly where rich people were moving out of big cities to the provincesóor suburbsóout of pretty overt racism considering minirities synonymous w crime. I also think the book ďcapital in the 21 centuryĒ elucidates some of this showing pretty clearly that capital consistently grows faster then income and so basically if you come from inherited wealth and just keep collecting capital as if life was monopoly you basically have to be retarded to blow it, while if you earn an income for a living the vast majority of people are just going to scrape by unless you are Lebron James or the Uber guy or something. The meritocracy is all but dead right now. Like 4 of the 10 richest people in the country are wal mart heirs who havenít worked a day in their life. Also Iíll just add I think that downtown is the most disgusting. I imagine many of the yuppies down there rent but the confluence of extreme wealth and extreme poverty is just gross. I guess Venice has kinda become the same way. I was born there in like a 40 k 900 square foot house that is now 1.7 mil. Unfortunately my parents sold it when I was a kid to get a bigger house in the suburbs away from minirities.
