Oakland is

downtown Oakland… where people look you in the eye when they hold the door for you;

… where people say “bless you” when you sneeze;

… where arrogance is not yet in style;

… where there are way fewer restaurants and bars to go to, but they are so much better;

… where women are nowhere near as arrogant and entitled and they have so much more appeal;

… where there are “normal” black people who don’t live in projects;

…. where I feel like am back in SF of the 90’s;

… where I would proudly move, but I can’t quite get myself to do that yet;

… where I get sad, because I know that the spread of the SF douchidemic there is inevitable, but I hope I am wrong;
