Good article.

Good article. Thanks for posting. I'd assume some of the folks evicted by the city from Blackstock were low-income renters evicted from their homes and apartments. We don't know, because the city hasn't told us the circumstances of those evicted. Some had new tents, furniture, other belongings, and autos parked next to the tents.

"I've seen people sell their homes on Facebook Marketplace for $1,000."

Lisa Goff, in her Shantytowns, USA talks about how shanty dwellers in the 19th century sold their shantys for cash to wealthy people who used them for firewood.

Very sad.
