hate to tell you this….you ARE the gentrifier, always were. Unless you happened to be born and raised in the Mission, though I assume you aren’t even from the Bay Area. Choosing to be a low income artist is not the same as having to take whatever job you can and be forced into a situation due to racial bias and socio-economic limitations. But please, PLEASE, please stay out of Oakland. I am tired of my beloved home being turned into some hipster art project.
