Good article which explains Oaktown: Poverty in America Part 1

Poverty is on the rise in America, and buying passivity with cheap bribes has limits when applied to a fraying middle class.

If jobs are not coming back, then we as a nation need a conversation about poverty in America.

Yep. So now go read Charles Smith’s article here. Oakland is but a microcosm of California, the US and the “developed” world.

Obviously the article doesn’t “explain Oaktown” but it definitely matches our city’s growth arc by and large.
