Is Gentrification Reason Behind Attack of Two Interpreters in Gay Bashing
Washington DC - 12:30 AM officers responded to the 2000 block of 10th St., N.W. on April 15, 2018. This was in response to an aggravated assault. There are two adult males that were attacked by three suspects. "during the assault, the suspects yelled homophobic slurs" the police statement says. U St NW is predominantly black neighborhood where Howard University is based in and this neighborhood has always been a predominately black neighborhood.
Small Dot is DuPont Circle. Circle is U St. NW area where the attack occured.
Washington D.C. has been going through gentrification and because the area (DuPont Circle and Logan Circle) where the gay community has always been located has gone through gentrification, their bars have been pushed to the U street area. Since U St. NW is being gentrified as well, many black people are angry about being pushed out of their neighborhood so it does not shock Ricky Taylor that gay bashings happened because they felt threatened by gentrification. DuPont Circle used to have rougly 15 gay bars but currently only have four while U St. NW had none and now have about four or five. This occured when DuPont gentrification increased cost of lease and rentals in the area which caused those bars to shut down or relocate.

Report: CBS Honcho Les Moonves Was Obsessed With Destroying Janet Jackson After Her Super Bowl ‘Wardrobe Malfunction’
According to a report by Huffington Post, Les Moonves, the CEO and chairman of CBS, was obsessed with destroying the career of Janet Jackson following the 2004 Super Bowl’s notorious half-time show, during which the singer’s breast was exposed, allegedly inadvertently, for nine-sixteenths of a second. According to HuffPo’s sources, Moonves did all he could to make sure her career was wrecked in a ditch.
The incident, which happened in a show produced by CBS and MTV, was explained as a “wardrobe malfunction,” and many believe that the whole thing was more the fault of Justin Timberlake. However, Moonves — who was recently accused of decades of sexual misconduct — allegedly never bought that explanation, believing that the whole thing was an intentional attempt to foment controversy and publicity by Jackson. He believed Jackson was insufficiently repentant, and, the report claims, he singled her out for vengeance.
