2.) Esquire: Netflix's 'Gentefied' is a much needed dose of Latinx culture, while explaining gentrification


I just started watching Netflix's new series Gentefied. I'm only a few episodes in but I'm really enjoying it! There are a lot of shows lately that discuss the topic of gentrification but I think this one has a fun new take on it. From the Esquire review:

"Netflix gave this series the space and representation it needed to tell a story that tells a compelling narrative about Mexican-American culture without turning it into tragedy for a white audience. It breaks open power dynamics. It plays with generational divides and gives a subtle explanation of how gentrification dismantles communities. It explains what happens when those with power veer out of their lanes. But most importantly, it asks its viewers to stop talking and listen."

Here's the official trailer for the show.
