    They even tore down some low income housing it was a lot of housing and everyone of them were tore down,only built three or 4 houses and the rest is a big empty lot.

    YES, I remember all of this I am from Charleston, SC also.

    Very odd indeed and it shows that they obviously had different motives other than preserving the historical landmarks.

    In Ny along the Erie Canal my Grandparents were offered a considerable sum for their house as a historical property(canal in the back yard as well as a cemetary with graves dating to 1800 and original 1800 church adjacent to the property) a few others on the same street were desired as well.They sold the house and the buyer demolished it.I found that very odd.

    Where I am located numerous blocks of property have been bought out and homes destroyed not far from where I live, just 2 blocks away in fact.The owners of most of the properties were white and hispanic(they were landlords with numerous rental properties mostly).The neighborhood consists of a mixture of hispanic ,black, and white families.One land lord, an awesome black man, refused to sell his property,a few others said no too.Those people were mostly people who did not rent out their property.

    I know you already know this but it’s called ” Gentrification” they are doing the samething in Harlem, NY… But good video.

    Since I made this video, they have shut down two other low income neighborhoods here as well. It is obvious to me now that this is a calculated move nation wide. The question now is what is the master plan? With Bush Jr. signing the P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act into order and now Obama recently signing the NDAA Act, I fear that the end game could be to round all these people up at some point and place them into FEMA camps. I use to think that was crazy talk but now I’m starting to wonder. SMH.

    I live near Charleston, SC and YES they have been and are in the process of closing projects, especially downtown in prime real estate locations. I can remember that as far back as the 80s there was a project downtown that they closed telling the residents that the land was contaminated. Low and behold years later a aquarium and restaurants were built on the same land.

    - 2 example…These women flock into these churches (business) every Sunday, to hear some well dress preacher (pimp) talk about absolutely nothing. Who’s tagging alone? We are, the black man. We need to get our communities together, get these drugs off our streets, get these young kids straighten out, get these black women, back in the home, to help cultivate our familys. Once we get things in order, we can make a sound decision together, who can be our next leader.

    - I hate to be so negative, but our black women are the ones to blame for some of this. They get so caught up on image, they don’t use good judgment. 1 example…Black women were crying, falling all down, cause they bought into Obama’s camp. They like his look, speech, dress, his euro education, and his promises. He fail to deliver for blacks so far, and the only class to benefit were gays. Stop judging a book by its cover! Sometimes the content ain’t good.

    (2) have definitely have to get their heads out of the clouds and stop believing these so called leaders for real man.

  12. madefrom9Apr 9, 2013 at 10:57 am

    You are so right brotha. At the time when I made this video, I admit I was not really expecting it to be as widespread as it obviously is. Since then I have had many people around the nation that have contacted me to tell me exactly what you said. The fact of the matter is that developers know that these neighborhoods are sitting on prime real estate with Black’s living there without owning anything. So the plan is to push them out and build something profitable.Black people(cont)

  13. brownhornet71Apr 9, 2013 at 11:57 am

    One of the problems with blacks, is that we’re so quick to believe anybody white or black, with a euro education, with an expensive suit on. We don’t do our necessary homework, to debunk these so called leaders. What really is our agenda? Hotep

  14. brownhornet71Apr 9, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    My Brutha, it’s nationwide! I’ve been in just about every major city, were blacks use to have a strangle hold at, (any of course, not doing anything with it) and whites are moving in the straight ghetto. Building 400- 500 thousand dollar condos, massive parks, everything to make them feel comfortable. New York’s Harlem & Chicago South & West sides, are being transformed, right in front of our eyes.

    My hood is on my head and everyone knows black people don’t use bicycles.

  16. JDFerguson77Apr 9, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    Man i dig what you have to say you dont have a problem speaking truth no matter who its about.Its odd in my town in Ohio we have 3 ghettos 1 white one black and one mixed oddly the look over the mixed one cause we get along not really what they want in my town not sure how things are where you are they have closed 2 of our projects rebuilt them as condos that no one can afford great move huh God Bless you and yours keep up the work.

    (2)Most projects are located far away from good jobs and most have either dropped out of school or barely passed. So they can’t get the good jobs anyway. You are right about the FEMA camps and I have tried to warn people of this for years. Thing is though, it won’t just be Section 8 Blacks being rounded up. According to the P.A.T.R.I.O.T Act, all non productive citizens including those without jobs, good credit, speaking out against the government, etc, are targets of this New World Order.

  18. madefrom9Apr 9, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    I think you meant “some Blacks”. At least I hope you did. The “Projects” were and are just that. Experiments. They were designed to concentrate low income Blacks into small areas to be deprived and controlled among other things. None of us can truly expect anyone living under these conditions to somehow become model citizens or high achievers. Section 8 and many other “hand out” programs are meant to program people into relying on the government and to be lazy and destructive.(contin)

    Blacks needed to get their shit together years ago. They have spent too much time acting like fools depended on the government. When the government stops section 8 and cancels welfare what are they going to do? Shit is about to hit the fan and blacks for the most part are going to be rounded up and locked up in fema camps.

  20. madefrom9Apr 9, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    I agree with you. Last year I did not see the situation that way but now after the projects have been removed, there is less crime in the city and it seems as though some of the people that got pushed out are now looking for jobs or have found jobs. I guess it’s like the old “sink or swim” cliche. I have talked to my aunt who owns rental property and she too says the Section 8 tenants were a nightmare and no longer deals with them. I see the light now. Hang in there.

  21. roxypriahApr 9, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    I think its about time for a change because I got people on section 8 that don,t deserve to be on section8. Some of my people tare up their places. They don,t try to accomplish things in life that think that they will live rent free forever. I am a home owner and am barely making it. Been one for 6years so far but thinking on comeing out of it. But if I was to use the system all am saying is I would us it for a stepping stone not a life style.

  22. madefrom9Apr 9, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    You know what? A year ago I would have disagreed with your view that the city is a better place with the projects being gone but now I have to agree 100%. Although crime has risen a bit in parts of the city that usually gets none, it is well controlled because the police presence in those areas were already priority. Not to mention the schools in those areas have better funding and do not tolerate the “bad” students. You my friend are right.

  23. YoungDutchSilkApr 9, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    currently live an it’s pretty nice… 5 years ago I remember getting lost in the projects at night when I was new to the city and literally fearing for my life and I’m 6 feet 3 and from the hood. I can’t see why anyone would be mad about poor ppl not all being forced to live in one crowded, old shitty area as opposed to being spread thruout the city. The ppl I see complaining the most are ppl who stay in APTS in the burbs where old project dwellers are moving an there just bitches.

  24. YoungDutchSilkApr 9, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Yes nice houses are going in there place, but most of those projects (where I live) were really close to downtown and geographically the best locations in the city.
    Now that the poverty is not so concentrated there are less people dying and living is such deplorable conditions an parts of town where tourists are likely to get lost are nice instead of ghettos. I think everyone has won despite the fact ppl have been displaced.

    I go to a particular hood where alot of the old project dwellers…

  25. YoungDutchSilkApr 9, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    …Nicer hoods has gone up gradually, but from what ive seen in general things are alot better crime wise than before the recession, in spite of the recession.

    I remember there used to be at least 10 neighborhoods in my city that you wouldnt even visit at night if you didnt live there or weren’t buying crack cause they were that terrible. Now the number is down to 5 or so. Those projects were factories that creating ruthless criminals and destroyed families.
