Gentrification Confounds Slum Lord

We've heard a lot of Detroiters say things about gentrification that don't make sense, but the owner of a condemned apartment building, Robert Karnick Sr., takes the cake for most inane. When his building was deemed uninhabitable, MLive reported that he was on the site and parked in his car "dodging questions and blaming gentrification ." Yeah so... once again. Gentrification is when people get priced out of their homes due to rising rent, not.. well anything else negative that needs a scapegoat. [MLive]
