Horror Story by Ray Johnson

No Up-to-date Software

Back when I was pursuing my bachelor’s degree, I was assigned a group project using a part designing software called CATIA. The project required our group to sketch a Boeing 737 and design it an upgrade. After delegating parts evenly among the team, we all started to work, planning to meet again a few hours before the assignment was due, to combine our work. The day before the meeting, one of our members messaged the group saying they had dropped the class and did not work on their part. After receiving this message our hearts sank, we quickly discussed a plan to have any available members who did not have other projects or exams to work on the missing part. As the CATIA software is licensed by the university and was only on university computers, my team had to rush to find an available computer. But as it was finals week, every computer was either being used by another student or did not have the software installed. After searching the whole campus, my team found a working computer with the software installed. But there was an issue. The software installed was an older version and did not have some of the tools needed to complete the assignment. However, this was not the end as we realized it is still possible to perform the tasks but would be very repetitive and time-consuming. In the end, we were able to finish and received a decent grade on the assignment. At first, I blamed the university’s incompetence in upgrading their computer infrastructure, but after about a week the outdated computers were all upgraded and up-to-date.

Learning Expectations

I am currently working on a project creating a new social media app. But for it to operate, it relies on other established infrastructure, which becomes a problem of control and reliability. I hope the knowledge gained from this course and degree will help fuel the development and my understanding of systems for the app can become fully vertical, only relying on its built infrastructure, but of course on Apple and Android products, to operate.

Imani Broadway – Q1

Provide a specific example of how each layer of the OSI model processes the movement of data in communicating from one entity to another. For example, discuss how email is processed for each model layer. 

The Open Systems Interconnection, commonly known as the OSI model, is a framework used to define how networking systems communicate and send data from a sender to a recipient, consisting of 7 different layers (What is the OSI model? OSI model explained: Proofpoint us, 2021). Each layer has a specific function to communicate with the layer above or below it. So, for example, when user one is preparing to send an email, they will start at the application layer using the protocol SMTP, defined for outgoing emails. The presentation layer then compresses the data to send to the session, opening up the communication between the outgoing server and the sender’s device. The message is then sent to the transport layer and segmented before going to the network layer to be broken down into packets. The packets then move to the network layer and are broken down further into frames. The frames are then sent to the physical layer to be converted to bitstreams of ones and zeros (What is the OSI model? OSI model explained: Proofpoint us, 2021). Once the message reaches the end-user, the entire process is reversed.

Abstract

This study will focus on genterfiaction in urban areas. It will look at the negatvie impact on communities and persons being displaced. Next, a examination of historical overiview of specifc neigborhoods will be examined. A exploration of economic and racial segregetion will be conducted through the lense of Apartheid theory and a reconceptualiztion of human rights violations towards those that have been displaced. Specifically, this exploration will exam the role of racial and econonmic segregations in the decline and assent of neighborhood as well as possible human rights violations against those that have been displaced.

Introduction

Since the 1950s, urban communities have been influenced by drastic demographic changes that first occurred as a result of “white flight” to the suburbs, and then gentrification as white middle- and upper-class families migrated back to redeveloped urban neighborhoods. Disinvestment and reinvestment in cities were directly linked to these demographic changes, and communities of color were affected overwhelmingly. Gentrification and relocation of current neighborhood residents is directly associated with white migration back to urban communities. As a result, many people of color who have lived in these neighborhoods for generations have been displaced from their communities.

Problem

Gentrification happens due to lack of enforced policies that respect neighborhood feedback, provide inclusive rezoning policies, and deliberate housing choices. Without policies that aim to reverse patterns causing forced displacement, gentrification will continue to dismantle and displace low-income neighborhoods. To develop such strategies, we must consider the unnecessary and harmful consequences of gentrification. According to the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) study from 2000 through 2013, 135,000 Blacks and Hispanics where displaced due to gentrification. In Washington, D.C., 20,00 black residents were displaced and in Portland, Oregon, 13 percent of the black community was displaced over the decade. Gentrification has become a grave threat, killing the communities and culture of generations of African Americans families thus critically endangering the existence of black legacy, culture and tradition. Long time Black residents of Harlem, New York, and Atlanta Georgia once known as the Meccas of the Black Experiences have endured the overarching inequity of gentrification. This inequity has resulted in current black residents being forced out and displaced under the guise of community development simply because they can no longer afford the upgrades which makes a clear intention that these changes and upgrades where never intended for their pleasure but represent a form of racial exclusion.

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to unpack the philosophical constructs that underline the process of gentrification. This is important because it illuminates the ignored disenfranchisement of the process itself and the racial inequality that hides in plain sight leaving many displaced and homeless. The intersectionality of gentrification to race, social, political, and the emotional narratives of those who have been displaced or worked with the population or in the process of being displaced, will help us to think about gentrification as a potential threat to human capital and bring to light the lack of policies and resources that should have protected them.

Research Question(s)

Does Gentrification violate the Human Rights of those living in Urban Areas?

Research Method

Single Case Study

Feasibility

The resources need to conduct the proposed study are:

  1. Residents of Norfolk Public Housing that are currently being affected due to gentrification.
    1. Informed Consent to engage with researcher.
    2. Open-ended Semi-structured interviews
  2. Housing history of the city of Norfolk
    1. Review and analyze archival information
    2. Videos
    3. Legal documents
    4. Census Data (2021)
  3. Current Policies regarding fair housing
    1. Review and analyze
    2. Implementation of current polies
      1. Data
      2. City workers
        1. Community Service Board
        2. Grassroot Organizations (NGO’s)
  4. Human Rights for Internally Displaced Persons (IDP’s)
    1. Review and analyze current definitions

Significance of the Study

This study is significant on multiple layers. First, it seeks to shed light on the historical disenfranchisement of African Americans as it relates to housing. Secondly, the research will reveal that the practices of segregation that have oppressed African Americans from living in mutual spaces, continue to strongly influence today’s housing markets. Finally, it will be instrumental for providing data to those that continue to advocate for justice in the area of fair and equitable housing.

Summary

Gentrification gained considerable ubiquity in the national debate of urban inequity. It is a vivid expression of a larger process of increasing social and economic inequality, which has become structural in cities over the past half-century (Florida,R 2017). Gentrification is a problem that builds upon itself because many people living in urban areas are rapidly forced out of their neighborhoods leading to less community networks for individuals who are already struggling. Gentrification has “created a persistent de facto internal refugee population that expresses characteristic behavioral and health patterns of the cumulative effects including high levels of stress of multiple displacements (Fullilove & Wallace, 2011).”

Gentrification happens due to lack of policies that are inclusive of feedback from those that live in the various neighborhoods targeted for gentrification. Without policies that aim to reverse patterns causing forced displacement, gentrification will continue to dismantle and displace low-income neighborhoods. To develop such strategies, we must consider the unnecessary and harmful consequences of gentrification.

Section 2: Literature Review (completed in 3500)

In this section, you will write 10-15 pages that address each of the items listed below (as appropriate for the research method you plan to use for your study). This section will be included in your key assignment for RES 3500.

Background of the Problem

Gentrification is derived from the word “gentry,” historically referred to as persons of a higher social economic status. “Landed gentry “ was a term used to identify landowners in the United Kingdom who could live off their real estate income from their properties. In 1964, the term gentrification was coined by Ruth Glass, a German-British Sociologist and city planner in her attempt to describe the displacement of the poor in London as upper-class people moved into refurbished houses that were previously occupied by the poor and working class.

The term gentrification and its impact has been debated over the past five decades. Germane to these debates are “the differential impacts on incumbent and new residents and questions of who bears the burden and who reaps the benefits of change (Zuk, 2017).” In the context of the United States, gentrification can be understood as the re-colonialization by upper middle-class Whites who profit from the disinvestment of historical Black Urban areas leaving them to struggling with the consequences of economic segregation, poverty, lack of access to decent education and healthcare, and all forms of racial injustice.

Over the past five decades, gentrification has become a controversial phenomenon due to the severity of complex underlying issues associated with the process of gentrification. Specifically, racism, displacement, precarity, deterioration of mental health, deterioration of physical health, social interruption, a human right, are just a few of the intersecting constructs placed on the most marginalized members of our community. Cities in the United States have experienced significant levels of gentrification since the recession of 1990 that transformed high-poverty neighborhoods by demolishing public housing projects with disproportionately high African American occupancy.

According to the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) study from 2000 through 2013, 135,000 Blacks and Hispanics were displaced due to gentrification. In Washington, D.C., 20,00 black residents were displaced and in Portland, Oregon, 13 percent of the black community was displaced over the decade. Thus, gentrification has become a grave threat to the communities and culture of generations of African Americans families, critically endangering the existence and experience of black legacy, culture and tradition.

For example, long time Black residents of Harlem, New York, and Atlanta Georgia once known as the Meccas of the Black Experience, have endured the overarching inequity of gentrification and has resulted in the Black residents being forced out and displaced under the guise of community development simply because they can no longer afford the upgrades which makes a clear intention that these changes and upgrades where never intended for their pleasure but represent a form of racial exclusion. Gentrification does not just happen, it has it’s on genesis of pathology. This pathology consist of three historical components that make communities susceptible to gentrification.

1. Historic conditions,

• Redlining: specifically, policies and practices that made certain communities susceptible to gentrification. From the 1930s through the late 60’s, the federal government set forth standards to be carried out by banks that explicitly labeled neighborhods of color as “risky” and “unfit for investment.” This practice was created so that people of color were denied access to loans for loans that would enable them to buy or repair homes in their neighborhoods.

• White Flight: In the mid 20s, there were other housing and transportation policies that powered the growth of predominately what suburbs and the exodus of capital from urban centers. The FHA required that suburban developers agree to not sell or rent houses to Blacks in order for the developers to access thes guaranteed loans. This practice legally created segregation and a caste system in the United States.

• Urban Renewal: Communities of color were left behind in central cities to bear the burden of new highway system expansion, urban renewal programs, which resulted in the loss of homes, business, and neighborhood institutions. This set the stage for widespread public and private disinvestment in the decades that followed.

• Foreclosure crisis: The foreclosure crisis in the early to mid 2000’s contributed to making communities vulnerable to gentrification. In low-income neighborhoods of color, disproportionate levels of subprime lending- the provision of loans to people who may have difficulty maintaining the repayment schedule. Historically, subprime borrowers were defined as having FICO scores below 600, although this threshold has varied over time. These loans are characterized by higher interest rates, poor quality collateral, and less favorable terms in order to compensate for higher credit risk. Many subprime loans were packaged into mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and ultimately defaulted, contributing to the financial crisis of 2007–2008.

2. Central City disinvestment and investment patterns

• More than ever before, people and capital are flooding back into historically disinvested neighborhoods. Why?

o Affordability: In most US cities, rental property cost have gotten increasingly eexpensive even for moderate income earners who are looking to reduce their housing cost. For example, according to Zillow Data, in San Francisco, the media rent of a 2 BR apartment went up almost 70% between 2011 and 2017.

• Historic housing stock is appealing to new residents

• Closer proximity to city centers, where jobs, resturants, and spaces are.

• Revitalization: Cities are investing in some of these neighborhoods with improved transit access and infrastructure in part to draw newcomers.

Gentrification happens due to lack of policies that are inclusive of feedback from those that live in the various neighborhoods targeted for gentrification. Without policies that aim to reverse patterns causing forced displacement, gentrification will continue to dismantle and displace low-income neighborhoods. To develop such strategies, we must consider the unnecessary and harmful consequences of gentrification. According to the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) study from 2000 through 2013, 135,000 Blacks and Hispanics were displaced due to gentrification.

In Washington, D.C., 20,00 black residents were displaced and in Portland, Oregon, 13 percent of the black community was displaced over the decade. Gentrification has become a grave threat killing the communities and culture of generations of African Americans families thus critically endangering the existence of black legacy, culture and tradition. Long time Black residents of Harlem, New York, and Atlanta Georgia once known as the Meccas of the Black Experiences have endured the overarching inequity of gentrification. This inequity has resulted in current black residents being forced out and displaced under the guise of community development simply because they can no longer afford the upgrades which makes a clear intention that these changes and upgrades where never intended for their pleasure but represent a form of racial exclusion.

Conceptual or Theoretical Framework

Through the lens of Apartheid Theory, I seek to make connections to a deeper historical context prior to colonialism. Apartheid theory requires the social, economic, and political segregation of persons based on race. Apartheid theory is deeply rooted in the belief that the country should be divided into separate areas for black and white. It was this theory that came to national attention when the effort on the part of the Nationalist to preserve the cultural and racial unity of Afrikaner or Dutch South African people as well as an attempt to preserve the continued supremacy in the Union of the man of European stock above the man of no-European stock (E. P. Dvorin, 1959). It is posited that the plight of persons of African American decent in the United States as it relates to housing reflects Apartheid Theory. Specifically, they have been subjugated to delipidated and segregated housing since the beginning of slavery.

Furthermore, the conceptual framework will include the exploration of the possible reconceptualization of persons displaced due to gentrification, as Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) as defined by United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). IDPs stay within their own country and remain under the protection of its government, even if that government is the reason for their displacement. This reconceptualization is justified by two premises. First, often persons displaced by gentrification is due so to the actions of local, state and the federal government. Secondly, such persons do not typically cross a border to find safety such as refugees; instead, they are on the run at home.
