Everyone knows that people who are affected most by gentrification are those who are low income and minorities. We hear this constantly but we need to take a closer look at the statistics. A study done by a Stanford professor shows how gentrification is displacing minorities and leaving them with few options. Black communities were pushed out of gentrified areas and had few places to choose from. Those who came from non-gentrified neighborhoods were more likely to be able to find affordable housing. Those who could do this housing were mostly white and in the upper middle class.
