Amazon’s rapid growth is driving gentrification into popular neighborhoods such as quirky, traditionally gay, Capitol Hill. But Capitol Hill is becoming ‘less gay’ and LGBTQ hate-crimes jumped from 6 in 2011 to 19 in 2012.
What are they trying to say?
This phenomena is called swarm stupidity.
They confuse correlation and causality like basically every retard in media that has an agenda does nowadays, for the sole reason to make a point about an issue they care about, but have no statistical proof for to reinforce their argumentation. I think they do this intentionally. Reaction to A vs B which is not A == B
But you can be populist in your argumentation far easier, and thus draw in far more supporters, when you forgo logic and basic journalist integrity
Logic and reason in this day and age... I must be hallucinating. Cheers! Keep it up!
