Huh, the black population of seattle in 1960 was 4.8% overall, today it is over 11%.

So what does this say about gentrification in the CD?

Converning the current black diaspora from the CD. My question is this: has the black population of Seattle grown or shrank over the previous decades? Now I know that increased property taxes and rents are the primary driver of black flight, but is it also possible that now that restrictive racial covenents are a thing of the past, blacks can live anywhere they want? Families are selling homes and moving to south king county, but are new families moving to Wallingford, Fremont, etc.? So the population in CD shrinks but grows in other neighborhoods? The conventional wisdom on this subject seems a little overly simplified, IMHO.

@14, no everything is amped to 11, like a goddamn COMIC BOOK.

I thought the Bruce Jenner's dog post was pretty funny. What @3 said.

I voted for Move Seattle, and the dedicated bike lanes in SE Seattle (that would help me and my children not get crushed by a truck) magically disappeared once it passed. A serious bait in switch, so I'm gonna go ahead and voted no for this new levy ( the first time I have ever voted no for a Seattle levy BTW).

What a constructive conversation. Great job sloggers.

I am a dedicated family biker who routinely hauls two kids around the city. I voted for move seattle with the hope that we will eventually see some bike infrastructure in the neighborhood. Not asking for a lot, but it would be nice to have a safer, dedicated route to downtown. This bait and switch (along with 30 years for a graham street light rail station) makes me very hesitant to vote for any other of out current mayors pet projects.

@14 And there is the big picture, right. I HATE the timetable, but do I want to be that guy with his dick in his hand bitching about lack of transit in 20 years?
