One of the reasons why I am glad to be moving is that the area is changing. It used to be a solid middle class area with no homeless on the corner, no real crime (aside from the one burglar that was behind several break-ins and got caught).

That neighborhood is changing. It began in 2019 when the beggars started showing up on the street corners. I went to the grocery store (Publix) that is about a quarter mile from the house this weekend, and this is what I saw:

Now you might think that the problem I have is that she is black, and you would mostly be wrong. The problem that I have is that she was covered in dirt, braless, wearing slides, and looked like shit with her lack of caring about her appearance. It’s a sure sign that the area is on a downward economic trend.

To make things worse, there is a low income housing development going in about a quarter mile away: it will be a mix of 200 apartments and 150 homes. All what they call “affordable” housing. yay.

What you have here is a picture of a common sheboon dressed in her finest mating plumage, trolling for a mate. Since the male of the species has notoriously bad eye sight he has to rely on smell to locate his mate.

It’s called situational awareness.

Unlike the poor gal who apparently got into a spat and turn her back to get shot. Not realizing the dead mom could be charged with rayceest shit for walking away from a spat.

Remember when the cops used to tell the vagrants and other undesirables to “keep moving” — ?

i worked for a city in tx…when i started there the hs was ranked below the top 350 schools in the nation…by time i retired from there it was almost taken over by the state…i watched it go from 85-90% white to the reverse and it went down hill fast…so glad i got the hell out of that shithole…$250k dollar homes section 8…$3-4000k homes with 4-6 adults living in them with no jobs…all get tax money checks every month…it’s a shame…the only way to escape it is move to the country…as long as demtards run the show, they will make sure the ghetto comes to your neighborhood because of equity…

Before we bought our last house in NY I staked out the neighbkrhood over lunch a few times. Grab a slice, go sit in the car across the street.
Littlenold ladys going to the pharmacy, old men out for a stroll, maybe a dog walker… lived there 7 years. When we moved the old couples had been replaced by trench coat wearing dyed-haired fishing tackle delivery people (why else do they stick that crap in their face?)
Neighbjrs informed us the old couples all died off and investors paid 20% premium on the real estate, turned them into section 8 rentals.
BOOM, gone the next year! Correlation sometimes does equal causation….

Interesting, we live in a rural, tax friendly county in SC and I seldom see anything close to your Ms. Parking-Lot 2023 there. However if I go to the Walmart in the other county, one with heavy taxes & fees that has subdivision upon subdivision, I can’t get in or out of the parking lot without seeing beggars, beggars with signs and now beggars with signs and small children as props. Customers at that Walmart are normally in pajamas, disheveled and seem to have a real hatred of personal hygiene in general.

Years ago, back when I lived behind the iron curtain (in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts), a zoning variance was passed where developers could bypass construction zoning committees by setting aside a percentage of units for subsidized affordable housing. The neighborhood where I was saw home values cut by 25% in just 18 months because of the section 8 people. Multigenerational welfare rats took the opportunities to leave the hood and come to the suburbs- I had a 12 year old break the window of my truck to get at the change in my ashtray. My kid beat his ass wholesale on the regular after that. There was a kidnapping when we were packing up the place to move to America.
I DGAF if south FL is unaffortable for most these days. Affordable housing is the death of a community. There are plenty of affordable places to live in the hood.
