Such a sad commentary on our society. I wonder if the prevailing attitude of boot-strapping would remain when one's fortunes were reversed. If everything were equal without a 400-year history of exclusion and privilege, I would be down with bootstrapping but that is not the current reality.

Gentrification and marginalization is real. If you've never been on the short end of either one, then for you ignorance and denial is a blissfull wet dream; meanwhile for others, that wet dream is a unending nightmare.
