White yuppies observing (or worse, complaining about) gentrification in their largely-minority neighborhood
I still can't believe this actually happens, but I see it all the time. Have some self-awareness!!
Love this! It's always annoying when my white private schooled educated friends living in Greenpoint and Williamsburg complain about the gentrification. But my faux leather leggings really got in a bunch when after living in Bed-Stuy a mere four months, my white male goatteed music engineering friend complained about the "bearded hipsters' living down the block "acting like they own the place."

It's because it's nice to live in an inexpensive area and have all your friends live near you (many of which may be hipsters) but it's not so nice to have so many hipsters live their that the cost of living goes up.
