To the undoubtedly comfortable white person who did this to my friend’s salon, 
This is Salon Tress, it belongs to my friend Tressa. She recently relocated her business to Logan Square from Albany Park in the hopes of increasing foot traffic and also, to be closer to Humboldt Park where she has lived for more than the eight years I have known her. Tressa’s husband Andy is a recent college grad. He is also legally blind, so they rely on income from the salon to do things like pay bills and buy food for their son Baron, who is a year older than my son Teno. Things are not easy for Tressa as a small business owner, but even as she struggles to make ends meet she continues to offer hair cuts and styling at extremely reasonable prices. She even cut my hair for free when I was unemployed so I would look nice on interviews. So when you scrawled what I’m sure you thought was a super cool statement against the gentrification of Logan Square on the front door of her salon, you really fucked up. See, Tressa provides affordable services to the people in Logan Square who actually live on a budget. As I am sure you went to that Starbucks on the corner either immediately before or after writing on my friend’s business’ door, you probably have extra money to spend on cleaning graffiti off your door, but she doesn’t. Most people who struggle, the people who you have made the most pathetic effort to defend with your dumb act of vandalism, don’t have time to write shit on doors because they are at their jobs, working incredibly hard to make a living. Working hard like Tressa does. So, while I doubt you will see this post, know that if you fall in a hole and die it’s because I wished that on you, because you are an awful person. And to everyone else in Logan Square, please book an appointment at @salon_tress because Tressa is a great person and, contrary to what her front door may indicate, she is not pushing anyone out of their homes, but rather, she is trying to scratch out a living doing what she loves. Thank you. #chicago #logansquare #salon #hair
