95-100% luxury units Los Angeles- the elimination of diversity

More demolition on Hi Point St. Due to the collaboration of the planning department Los Angeles, the Metro Board, the Mayor and Council and select business concerns, the city continues its insatiable appetite to build for the elite luxury and market rate tenants and destroy housing  for the diverse poor, low and middle income tenants. New apartments by design of those landowners will be 95-100% luxury units,  from the pictures below.

 Killing Hi Point

 Commentary

by G. Juan Johnson – October 10, 2019

HAVE PROPERTY OWNERS NO SENSE OF DECENCY?

A TIME NOT TOO LONG AGO.

“The army hired Boston lawyer Joseph Welch to make its case. At a session on June 9, 1954, McCarthy charged that one of Welch’s attorneys had ties to a Communist organization. As an amazed television audience looked on, Welch responded with the immortal lines that ultimately ended McCarthy’s career: “Until this moment, Senator, I think I never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness.” When McCarthy tried to continue his attack, Welch angrily interrupted, ‘Let us not assassinate this lad further, senator. You have done enough. Have you no sense of decency?’ “

A TIME NOT TOO LONG AGO.

“Jews were concentrated into ghettos in major cities with the expectation that at some point they would be transported further east or even overseas. Horrendous conditions in the ghettos—severe overcrowding, poor sanitation, and a lack of food—resulted in a high death rate.” 

“Round-ups began on 16 April, and from 14 May, four trains of 3,000 Jews per day left Hungary and travelled to the camp at Auschwitz II-Birkenau, arriving along a newly built spur line that terminated a few hundred meters away from the gas chambers. Between 10–25 per cent of the people on each train were chosen as forced laborers; the rest were killed within hours of arrival. Under international pressure, the Hungarian government halted deportations on 6 July 1944, by which time over 437,000 of Hungary’s 725,000 Jews had died. In spite of the orders to stop, Eichmann personally made arrangements for additional trains of victims to be sent to Auschwitz on 17 and 19 July.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Eichmann

“By July 1942, SS doctors were conducting “selections” where incoming Jews were segregated, and those considered able to work were admitted into the camp while those deemed unfit for labor were immediately killed in the gas chambers.The arrivals that were selected to die, about three-quarters of the total, included almost all children, women with small children, pregnant women, all the elderly, and all of those who appeared (in a brief and superficial inspection by an SS doctor) to be not completely fit and healthy.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josef_Mengele

In this 2019-2020 America,  the middle class and the low income are the new useless eaters —that Hitler allegedly spoke of —who should face extermination.

Ridding California of the low and middle income. Denying maintenance to create substandard conditions. Black homeowners are being brought out. and they won’t be replaced with Blacks. Gentrification means killing off diversity.

China’s middle class they say is bigger than the entire United States. The population of China is 1.5 billion, India is 1.28 billion and the US is 323 million people. Is it the Chinese who come here to buy up America?

I invite you to visit Hi Point St between Pico and Pickford and you will see the power of gentrification and over building. Some say parking will be completely eliminated in favor of pedestrian walkways.

Diversity will be eliminated.

Solutions

STOP THE RETURN TO THE MIDDLE AGES

“…we are not doing the work behind the scenes and we have made things unnecessary complicated (red tape) and convoluted. “ G. Juan Johnson, page 7-8, Random Lengths News July 11, 2019.

“Such is the harsh reality of gentrification; it’s a wonderful thing for those with the money to afford the changes…” Arlo Tinsman-Kongshaug, page 6, Random Lengths News, September 26, 2019.

In the Middle Ages, there was the kingdom and the serfs. Our solution here is that the serfs have to use every legal means possible to stop these massive luxury developments. In 2016 I sued the City government of Los Angeles to help stop the illegal housing discrimination by government employees. I sued to force equal housing benefits, privileges, and services. The city connected property management company Williams Real Estate Advisors faced a motion for summary judgment and the city faced a motion for default judgement.

An example of gentrification is 1522 Hi Point St and owned by Hi Point Apts LLC business entity 201406410177 of which Walter Barratt is the CEO. The address for the corporation is 226 Carrol Canal, Venice CA 90291. Barratt’s phone is 213-908-8008. Power Property Management Group can be reached at 310-593-3955; PPMG is responsible for the lack of maintenance at this address. PPMG employees are Brent Parsons, Thomas Khammar, Jackie Gallardo, Jeanette Conway, Alva Corodo, Fidel Medina, Joel Murrillo, Javier Guevarra, Liliano Morales, Edi Hernandez, Justice Walker. PPMG’s Liliana Morales wrote today (Oct 14) that maintenance will be out tomorrow to shut off the water and make plumbing repairs. Not one word from Liliana about the intercom system which is still in a state of disrepair, a health and safety privilege afforded to white tenants and denied to Blacks tenants. Liliana refuses to respond to the denial of other housing services to Blacks at this building. Liliana is a racist.

Since recent voter approved initiatives approved money for repairs, property owners do not have an excuse not to maintain their properties.

Serfs need to mount lawsuit after lawsuit against the greedy developer barrons who are getting much more than a fair rate of return.

I support that the city of Los Angeles needs to approve a moratorium to halt all new luxury housing. The city should pass a law mandating all new housing must be 85% affordable and 15% for middle class incomes.

We do not need any more luxury housing.

The San Jose option

Granny Flats have been approved in San Jose. Builder says houses can be built in two to three months. What is taking Los Angeles so long to do the same for affordable housing?

https://www.sanjoseinside.com/2019/09/06/first-granny-flat-design-approved-under-san-joses-fledgling-adu-master-plan/

My other solution I have proposed to the city is the tenant for life ordinance that if a landlord refuses to make repairs (seen elsewhere on this site), then a tenant can only be evicted for non-payment of rent. That tenant becomes the “tenant for life”.

THE CAMPAIGN

Other candidates for the 10th District include Lily Larsen, Aura Vasquez, Grace Yoo, Jace Dawson, Mark Ridley-Thomas, Dallas Fowler, Khansa Jones-Muhammad Clark, Melvin Snell, Andrea Wade-Catena.

How many of these candidates support gentrification?                             

On November 4 to December 4 this year I need your help to sign my nominating petition for the 10th District 90035 where I will need the signatures of 500 registered voters to make it onto the ballot.  See the campaign website at https://johnsonelect2020.wixsite.com/website

Killing Hi Point

I fight for fair housing for all. I fight for less gentrification. I support “full and equal” housing “privileges and facilities.” I support the California Unruh act which says:

“All persons within the jurisdiction of this state are free and equal, and no matter what their sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sexual orientation, citizenship, primary language, or immigration status are entitled to the full and equal accommodations, advantages, facilities, privileges, or services in all business establishments of every kind whatsoever.”
