Like most urbanists, Grist writer Kristen E. Jeffers, who grew up in Greensboro, NC would "like to be able to walk around in peace. Bike to a nice full service grocery. Take the bus across town without shame. Get on the train and be in Raleigh in less time than it takes to get down I-40 East." While she's a proud urbanist, here's her issue: "Problem is, when I look around, I mostly see only one type of person associated with the urbanist label: young, white, and male. Not many young, black, and female, like me." [Via Planetizen, which terms this group "the young, the male, and the pale."]
