zz no 7-11

From 2012, at MLK & Sumner. When this banner was raised and some folks in the nearby neighborhood were working to block the construction of a building to house a new 7-11 at that lot (it was built, even though 7-11 reps lied in a public meeting and claimed there was no plan at all to put a 7-11 on this property), I received an email from someone accusing those neighbors of opposing the 7-11 as part of an anti-black, pro-gentrification, ‘lack of affinity’ towards minorities.

The email ended with this: “7-11. Let them come in. They are coming anyway. They rule. They control. Money talks.”
