    Dogtown, Oakland, California

    Dogtown is a nickname for a portion of West Oakland (officially Clawson) in the city of Oakland, California. Oakland Police officers coined the phrase due to a large population of stray dogs dating from the early 1980s. It is bounded on the east by Adeline Street, on the west by Mandela Parkway (previously the Cypress Street Viaduct), and its north-south limits are the 580 freeway and 28th Street. The area is undergoing rapid redevelopment from former industrial uses to live-work and other residential forms.[1]

    Seems like a nice lady. Liked her point about talking to your neighbor that doesn't look like you. The rest seemed crazy gibberish.

    I remember watching something on San fran, how it used to be a black city, but once the whites moved in it forced the blacks to oakland. I wonder where they're moving to, or ghettoficating, next.

    it was white people making an ok living run out by white people making a nice living

    San Fran is becoming like NYC. The money always pushes/buys the less wealthy out unless there are projects or low income housing.

    Money is moving into the Bed Stuy area of Brooklyn which used to be very dangerous. If the base buildings are good, money will move in and gentrify.

    Neil Patrick Harris and his white partner bought a huge brownstone in Harlem!

    The black community needs to become part of the gentrification instead of the obstacle.

    Become contractors, business owners and entrepreneurs.

    The school system in these areas should focus on life and work skills. How to interview, write a resume, balance a checkbook, run a business. Expose them to business owners, get them excited about becoming part of the growth.

    This is a cultural problem with a minority that has been beaten down and believes that becoming a real-world success is becoming a sellout.

    Urban renewal means negro removal.

    Tell that to Spike Lee. He was whining about gentrification in Brooklyn even though he has a expensive Manhattan apt.
