Nothing against you specifically Tim, I just HATE when that word is used to describe people gentrifying neighborhoods. Very happy to see the continuous improvement of these intown neighborhoods.

I love the article but I HATE the "pioneers" description of people who decided to buy houses where they can afford to buy them. I think calling someone a pioneer for moving into a neighborhood that people have been living in for years is offensive. You have not pioneered a thing, just made a smart financial decision. That language reeks of white privilege, because I am the minority in this neighborhood I have PIONEERED it for people like me. Am I a pioneer for going to my majority white office every day? Am I a pioneer because I am one of the few black recent home purchasers at my income level? NO, and neither are you.
