“East WillyB”: Gentrification Up In This Mother!

If you’re from a major city (like Chicago, New York, or Los Angeles), you’re no stranger to gentrification– upper-middle class white people moving into historically black/Latino/minority neighborhoods and whitifying the living crap out of them. It’s a serious problem happening across the country, which means that it makes great fodder for a new web series. Say hello to East WillyB, a new online show– featuring Latino actors Flaco Navaja, Caridad “La Bruja” De La Cruz, Raul Castillo, and many more– that chronicles the happenings of Bushwick, a Brooklyn neighborhood nicknamed “East Williamsburg” that’s being overrun by hipsters. So far, East WillyB has put out two webisodes, which you can watch here. The series looks promising and should definitely be on your radar.
