PROMPT: Racial population shift of East Los Angeles with respect to the Hispanic community. Talk about gentrification, panic selling, racial steering, and blockbusting. East LA used to be a predominantly white neighborhood and it became a largely Latino neighborhood. Now, with gentrification, those areas are becoming white again, driving up the prices. Target years are from the 60’s to 2000.
