Re: “Study: Oakland's Housing Affordability Crisis Is the Worst Among Major US Cities

PLEASE @Robert Hope you're not ENTITLED TO LIVE IN A CERTAIN AREA!?!?! What about where you're BORN? Being priced out of your own home town and then being told by someone from elsewhere, well, you're not entitled to get to live in your home town if you can't afford it....WHAT?! That shit doesn't even make sense.
@Joe Dunno, No one owes you a lifestyle? It's not even about that! What we're talking about is an area that's getting so out of control that really basic things are impossible - like moving out of your parents home at 18 and getting an apartment with friends as a waiter or barista while you go to college. Things that people have been able to do in most places in this country for a long long time are becoming out of reach for average folks born and raised in Oakland. And then someone from outside is going to tell you, well, I know this town is all you've ever known, and this is where your whole friends and family are, but when you turn 18 if you want to move out you should move to nebraska or some shit where you can afford an apartment?

We're not talking about bougie young professionals complaining about lack of lofts, we're talking about real families with generations of history in one place being dislocated out of their fucking HOMES to make way for condos built to house richer people from out of town.

How about No one's ENTITLED TO MY NEIGHBORHOOD? How about NO ONES ENTITLED TO MANIFEST DESTINY OVER MY HOMETOWN?
How about NO ONES ENTITLED TO MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR COMMUNITIES TO CONTINUE TO BLOOM WHERE THEY'RE PLANTED?



You're ludicrous.
