Illustration for article titled White People Continue to Feel Entitled to Everything

A friend of mine found this on a telephone pole in the Lake Merritt area of Oakland, where she lives.


This is racism, this is gentrification. This is mistaking an annoying interaction (please stranger man don’t hit on me) for a hostile one (this strange black man wants to steal my phone). You decided to perceive a “dirtyish” black guy with a pit bull who is “CLEARLY NOT A RESIDENT OF [YOUR] BLOCK” (how the fuck do you know that?) as a threat.

The person who took the time to type this up and spread the hate around the neighborhood is a gross asshole who needs to get the fuck out of Oakland.


p.s. I was told that all the flyers were ripped down, save one where people let lose their feelings on the original poster. I hope she paid attention to the constructive criticism
