I have a strong suspicion the author's decision to move to Capital View was merely an excuse to gather "material" for this pathetic piece. Although, I'll admit the quote below does impressively sum up my feelings after struggling through this shining example in racial and socio-economic privilege:
"I have a special reserve of fiery loathing for people who roll into a neighborhood of which they possess no knowledge, pull out their white-hot indignity at the first sign of anything uncomfortable or unfamiliar to them, and proceed to bitch endlessly about it."
Unbelievable. I can only hope that was meant as some ironically well-disguised self-loathing. Shame on CL for publishing this shit.
