Re: “West Oakland Gets an East Coast-Style Italian Deli

That the owners are either born in west oakland or long term past oakland residents eases the blow of this existing. As a Black 20+ year resident of Oakland, driving past this store makes me sad. it's gentrification at its best. The city has little to no youth development in that area and a school with a long history that Oakland Unified School District is doing its best to destroy and dismantle. I want to wish them the best and most of me does but in these times, its addition to the neighborhood makes me want to scream! Now that from out-of-state white googlers and the like are driving Black folks out of west oakland there's a deli. Just great. Yay!!!
