    San Francisco was once home to “the Harlem of the West.”

    That was the name given to the city’s Fillmore district, a historically African-American neighborhood that was a center of black culture. In the 1950s, it had a burgeoning jazz scene and a lively nightlife.

    Today, signs of African-American life are increasingly rare in the Fillmore districts and throughout San Francisco. The city’s black population has declined at an astonishing pace.

    black people in sf just need to become better team players.

    they are disappearing from the job scene and ultimately the sf scene all together … being pushed out not so much as as a result of gentrification per se, but due to their inability to compete for available jobs as a race vis-a-vis other races who process this ability as a natural consequence of their evolvement as individual.

    while sf is a metropolis unlike any other in the us (even the big apple), i think it provides the perfect study of what the future, or lack of one, blacks will have in america.

    it shows what happens when mere peasants, with little knowledge of the language, arriving by boat, are out competing and pushing us out of a city we they have occupied for hundreds of years.

    a short time ago, bp had a high visibility and commanding presence in the city. today they are about the fifth or sixth most populous group in town.

    while we may thrive in areas of the country where the racial divide is just between whites and blacks, because we only have to compete, for the most part, against another black person.

    but when we have to compel against other groups that’s when we are in deep trouble.

    as individuals, black people have already demonstrated, disproven and debunk that “superiority” of the white man as a political construct with no basis in reality and is about as authentic as the world’s first copy cat.

    it’s just that when it comes to multi-racial communities where progress requires a team effort is where black people suck big time.
