Investors & Contractors Rebuild Point Breeze while Denying Residents Jobs

With all this buying up property and rebuilding in Point Breeze, the contracting business is booming. There are construction projects going on all over the neighborhood. Nice to see folks are working, too bad it's not our people. Black people in this neighborhood can't even get a labor job with one of these companies. The investors probably didn't even consider black owned construction companies for their projects. 

Gentrification means:
"We don't want your poor, black ass for nothing. Not even your labor. Just get out of your neighborhood, so we can build it up for us." 
I feel like that's what they are saying to us. 😠
