Stop Glamorizing the Hood, Please
Joel Leon.

Having grown up in the hood, this article really speaks to me. I’m not mad at people for living where they can afford. I’m mad at people who come in, completely ignore an entire culture that was there before them and change it like it doesn’t matter. Also, you’ve completely nailed the way it’s treated in media. As per your words, it’s almost zoo-like. Great job.
