Thanks for the correction. You’re right. The redevelopment of the Fillmore district was disastrous to SF’s black population, prompting a mass exit while ruining the neigbhorhood, and rising rents are driving all low income people away. (Low income in SF is considered anything less than the median $96,000!!!) There’s a lot going on that’s out of my control, but I can vote, and write, and be politically active, and work on my unconscious bias.
