"There’s nothing wrong with a couple new coffee shops or bars or restaurants," he says. "But the rich people that move to a spot because it’s ‘cool’ often enough don’t really understand the politics of their being there." He points to the tech industry: "You might take a private bus line to your software development company or whatever and essentially live a life that’s completely segregated from the majority of people in the world, and in the meantime you’re trying to develop products and concepts that are ostensibly going to enrich those people’s lives? When you don’t know a single thing about them? Don’t even ride the bus with them? Eat at a restaurant that replaced the restaurant they used to eat in and is now too expensive for them to go to? That kind of atmosphere breeds resentment and contention."

I profiled Das Racist’s Himanshu Suri for the latest issue of self-titled, whose interactive edition for tablets and browsers is on sale now. ($2.99! Cheap!) The issue is also available for free here. Hima is a fascinating dude, and I’m very happy with how the story turned out.

Thanks to Arye Dworken, Andrew Parks and Aaron Richter for their sage edits and for asking me to write this. Thanks to Heems and Dapwell for giving excellent interviews. Thanks to you for reading!
