    Jackson Ward was a shithole until whites decided to move in and gentrify it


    Since the start of the 21st century, the neighborhood's reputation has rapidly changed from being that of a high crime neighborhood, into a popular historic district which rivals that of the Fan, and Church Hill. However, the revival of the neighborhood has led to gentrification controversy, particularly since while in 2000 it still had a majority African American population, by 2010 nearly twice as many white people as black lived in the neighborhood.[17] Furthermore, the neighborhood's continued change focuses development on mixed-use new construction as much as restoration of existing historic buildings
