True Ramsey and Maria Stories(Daddy Rant….)

Just checking out the news and saw this.  This is about gentrification.  I’m from the west texas town of Lubbock Texas.  Not much, but hey its my home town.  Just was in contact with a friend of mine and he me know that 3 elementary schools ok in my old neighborhood havd closed.  It seems many people are moving to the suburbs of the city.  As they have moved out certain political forces have transformed my old neighborhood.  Progress is what they will call it.  I call it losing your soul and character.  Now, I’m not saying everything in the neighborhood was nice, but there was nice places there.  However, thanks to the overwhelming feeling of thinking they were on rhe bad section of town they left.  In so leaving Bozeman, Iles and Parkway Elementary schools have closed.  The first Black High School in Lubbock is now a Charter school.  Taking the souls of so many past students with them…this has been brought to you by the good folks at Political-Hop(tellin’ it like it T-I is…)

PS:  The song for the weekend is, “They Reminisce Over You”, by Pete Rock and C. L. Smooth…have a great weekend….
