Airbnb’s racism problem is much bigger than a few racist hosts.
David Robinson

I’ve lived in several Oakland neighborhoods in the past ten years, and now I live in a beautiful quiet blue-collar neighborhood here (yes, they still exist!).

I’m more of a Couch surfing fan.

There’s a futon in my back room if you ever find yourself needing to stay in Oakland again. I’d never charge a guest, it’s just not the Oakland way.

I understand people think guilting hosts/AirBnbers into not doing temporary rentals by putting fliers up might work, but legislation would work better. Landlords listen to laws. That’s about it.
