Who the hell can afford the city these days? I consider myself well off (not rich by any means, but not struggling) and I can barely
afford my neighborhood. The upper class suburbs will stay the same, but everything else will mix...the city is quickly becoming home to only the well-to-do.

We all know whites offer nothing in terms of diversity. :-p If we had it our way everything would be Target, CVS, Starbucks, and Chipotle.
Seriously though, the gentrified areas of Chicago (aka, white) have sadly lost everything that made them awesome to begin with. Every neighborhood is starting to look the same now. Such is the way of gentrification.
