Hentefication in East LA

Actually spelled “Gentefication,” is the term being thrown around in East LA, somewhat of a reverse Gentrification. In the East LA neighborhood of Boyle Heights Hispanics are moving back and investing in the community.  THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN IN SOUTH LOS ANGELES! Gentefication comes from the Spanish word “gente” meaning people; the term arose after the people of the community began moving back and investing in their own community.  Understanding that if you want change for the better  you have to sometimes, (often in minorities community) do it yourself.  Check out the video above, its kinda awesome whats going on over there.
