Juggalos Find Cause in Fighting Gentrification

Hahahahahaha. Well isn’t this interesting? Juggalos stake their claim to a North Portland neighborhood in an anti-gentrification stance. Yes, Juggalos. Those ones. And by stake claim, we mean harass the landed gentry by canvassing the neighborhood with threatening letters—all in effort to get their neighborhood back.

Wait, their neighborhood?

This seems way more likely in our neck of the woods, where Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope fans are a bit more common. And it’s why we’re sharing…not to mention it’s just too good not to. It seems a bit ill-timed, though, as North Williams has long been gentrified. But here in outer Southeast, where you’re just as likely to hear Insane Clown Posse as you are to see your neighbor’s house bought and flipped, I wouldn’t be surprised. And the perceived link between anti-gentrification Juggalos and a recent spate of car break-ins also sounds vaguely familiar (if not totally intriguing). Maybe it hasn’t been the scrap collectors and meth heads plaguing the Foster neighborhoods after all?
