The politics of identity are confusing

Consumerist posts about population-change maps that show people are moving in large numbers from the hearts of cities to the outskirts.

They make a snide remark about "white flight".

But they point out that, amongst the signs of widespread exodus, a few neighborhoods deep in Detroit show gains in population.

Citing said gains, the very first comment makes a snide remark about "gentrification".

So, what--you don't want white people in or out of your backyard?
