15. Yes, his political power is related to his larger constituency.

I really don't go for this 'gentrification designed to disempower.' Its a consequence of success of some DC residents, over long periods of time, resulting in improvements to some neighborhoods and corridors (through which I rode every day, when I lived and worked in DC for 20+ years.)

Among those neighborhoods are those severely damaged as a result of fires etc in '60s, after Dr. King's death. They've been fortunate to have been able to recover, and thrive to some extent.
