Trader Joes attracts White People.

So much for urban renewal. I guess a crack house and a busload of whores would be a way better deal.




Black residents reject Trader Joe’s because it would attract too many white people

February 8, 2014

The Trader Joe’s grocery chain has withdrawn plans to build a store in the heart of a predominantly black neighborhood after a black leadership group fought the move.

The Portland Development Commission was set to give the grocer a large discount on property that had been vacant for years, pricing it at just over $500,000, down from an appraised value of $2.9 million, according to The Oregonian.http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/i...ican_lead.html

The Portland African American Leadership Forum sent a scathing letter in December to city leaders, saying the plan would price residents out of the area and the group“remains opposed to any development in North/Northeast Portland that does not primarily benefit the black community.”

Trader Joe’s would increase displacement of low-income residents and “increase the desirability of the neighborhood,” for “non-oppressed populations,” PAALF wrote.

“[This decision] reflects the city’s overall track record of implementing policies that serve to uproot, displace and disempower our most vulnerable community members,” the letter said.

Trader Joe’s bowed out amid the controversy.

“We run neighborhood stores, and our approach is simple: If a neighborhood does not want a Trader Joe’s, we understand, and we won’t open the store in question,” a company spokesperson said in a statement to The Oregonian.

But not everyone is happy about the outcome.

“There are no winners today,” Adam Milne, owner of Old Town Brewing Co., told The Oregonian. “Only missed tax revenue, lost jobs, less foot traffic, an empty lot and a boulevard still struggling to support its local small businesses.”

Can you blame them?
Start giving crackers a ghetto pass and the next thing you know there's a Starbucks on every corner right next to some trendy little clothes shop.

Yes, because the Trader Joe and Starbucks crowd is just itching to flock to that part of town.

Don’t forget the trendy little clothes shop, and the head shop down the street that seems to change owners every 5 months.
Start letting crackers in and it’s all downhill from there.

I guess I didn't trust the store brands of a discount grocery. The fresh food, meat and produce at WalMart sucks and I didn't figure Aldi would be any better.
Trader Joe's caters to the "gluten" crowd to a certain degree, and "organic" but they are a great value on quality merchandise. I'm a fan of their cheeses, etc. Even their produce is quality and inexpensive compared to other retailers. And they contribute tons of their "close to expiration date" foods and meats to local food shelters. I hit them every week or so. Down side is you see a fair amount of liberals there.

I don't really care if that's what the people in the neighborhood want as long as they're not also demanding tax dollars to fund jobs and development there too.

That link sounds more like Costco to me. That sampling crap has me about to go postal every time. The concept of "other people" must evaporate when pulling into the parking lot.

I sent the link for this story to Bomoni Jones on twitter, and asked his opionion. He came back and said I was to stupid to read past the title of the story. I said, I did read it, did you? Then he just came back and said I was stupid again and blocked me. Funny thing was, I actually wanted his opinion, because he is always crying about racism.

I guess, he didn't feel it was racism, and I was too stupid to understand why anyone wouldn't want to keep a Trader Joe's out.

Ha, pretty funny. My Trader Joe's is right next to my gym. My Saturday routine is gym, TJ's and Aldi. I love having both in my hood.
