Fred Stewart may be Portland's most controversial black activist. He grew up in Northeast Portland and has been a realtor in the neighborhood since the drug war days. He's twice run unsuccessfully for Portland City Council. His views are unconventional, and his style is confrontational. He claims to be a Democrat who continually blasts "white liberals" on everything from gun control (there's too much of it) to their inability to do more for blacks in Oregon (maybe the GOP would be better?).
Fred has a deep history with Northeast Portland and is featured in Priced Out the movie. In this first of two parts (nonconsecutive) Fred talks about growing up in the neighborhood, crime, black business opportunities and challenges and people who made it big when the property values in the community started to climb.
Part of the "Cut Out" series of POVS that were not adequately represented in the documentary Priced Out due to time limitations. https://www.pricedoutmovie.com/
