#21 thats a ridiculous view of gentrification. Stayers are not getting bought out by gentrifiers with cash in hand "here you go, have a million dollars for your old house!!! woohoo im rich - thank you gentrification!!". They are mostly being forced out by landlords raising rents to make room for richer tennats, banks foreclosing on loans that were illegally and sometimes forcibly extended over the last decade, property taxes and insurance going up with nearby house values, employment profiles changing with new businesses not catering to them, etc etc.
