Re: “West Oakland's Kilovolt Coffee Vandalized After Controversial Redevelopment Plan Gains Approval

I'm new to the East Bay, born and bred on the peninsula. I'm not a techie, not some mean guy trying to run people out of their home. But, the east bay represents the last place I can afford to live in this amazing place we call home. Now I feel like the bad guy. Call it white guilt, call it fear of anarchists coming to my door and destroying my life, call it whatever you want. But the behavior these folks are leveraging to affect change is not going to work, nor will it make any friends/allies out of people like me who see both sides of this coin, and want to help make this work for everyone. What to do?
