Apr 4 thegoodfight commented on Central District Activist Tells Jewish Uncle Ike's Owner to "Go Back to Germany" So Nazis Can "Get" Him Again.
Libertine - I don't think #19 "has the gist of things" because they don't even know the history of the CD and why this is even an issue/problem!

Speaking of, thanks for "educating" me no the fact that Jewish people were in the CD 100 years ago. *Rolls eyes* Did you not read that I grew up in the CD? I already know that fact, and the fact that a lot of Italians were there.

That doesn't matter, though, because the CD was solidly a black-neighborhood for all of the memory of anyone who is alive now and who has a dog in this fight. The gentrification is real, even if you bring up something that happened a century ago.

Even if Ike's grandparents owned a house somewhere in the CD in 1907, I don't think that erases the issue of Ike's shop on 23rd.

Response to Adam's "The article says that the store owners family has lived in the neighborhood for over a hundred years. How is that gentrification?"

You'd have to be a local and know the history of this particular area of the Central District (even more micro than that: this particular corner) in order to "get" why this corner has become a political issue.

For decades, this corner was known as a space for the local black-American community. Even Africans (immigrated from Africa) had issues with the black community at this exact location. Local black-Americans harassed Africans who set up businesses on this corner (and elsewhere in the CD, like on Jackson street).

I don't even know how to explain this without going way back--but it goes_way_back and involves complicated local race politics (I grew up on 25th just several blocks away).

"Maybe @54 is offended because you shared your opinion as if it were a fact, which you tend to do a lot. Saying "I find a range of people attractive based on characteristics that are not always physical in nature" is different from lecturing someone on what they should find attractive."

Yes, thank you, bidanfan.

Although I hesitate to post this, knowing that Estarinne will launch into another 54,000-words in response. Shouldn't there be a limit to commenting on one article? It's pretty much spam at this point.

Estrainne or whatever your name is - you've filled this comment section with post after post trying to discredit this woman's sexual desires with pseudo-science bullshit and excuse after excuse. it's not really big cocks she likes, you claim, it's just the "idea" of them. Bullshit. Trying to discredit what women say about their own bodies = silencing women. Go get fucked by a 9 inch cock and come back and tell us all how it doesn't really feel that different than a 5 inch cock and how size is really just all in your head. Cheers!

As a parent, I'm all for banning dogs whose jaws can crush kids skulls.

Also, we already have a basketball team: The Storm. Oh, wait, that's women's basketball so that doesn't count, right?

You might be a dope-smoking newspaper, but all the real homos left your paper in the 90's. Eat shit and die.

@111 The Seattle Section 8 list is an average of 4-5 years long. Ask someone who has been waiting on it. They also close their list for a year and a half and open it for 3 months, just like Boston apparently does. Don't look on their website, ask someone who is on the wait list.

The Stranger LOVED it when the Broadway Market's multiple quirky shops were replaced by the Broadway QFC. And now it's crying because Bauhaus is gone. STICK WITH A MESSAGE AND STOP GOING BACK AND FORTH FASTER THAN MITT ROMNEY.
