King of Scharloo: Jossy Rosales

King of Scharloo Jossy Rosales

Jossy Rosales dropping a historical gem how he as a Black entrepreneur experienced the start of dutch white gentrification in the 80s 90s in Scharloo: “Who kicked me out of Scharloo? White people. Who bought all these places in Scharloo? White people. The dutch.

Who owned it first? The jews. I was the only Curacaoan with this color they call ‘sad’ who dared to buy seven houses. Monuments owned by protestants and jews.
I rebuild them with my own damn money.”
