    • Dear Anthony,

      You have a very strong post here, showing what the community thinks about this issue. But, I don’t see where you stand, you talk about why the community thinks that gentrification has a negative impact on Oakland, but do you stand with that side? Also, it doesn’t seem that you are looking at the sides of the people moving to Oakland. Would you want to live at a place that cost a lot of money, or move to a place that cost less? Also, i’ve read somewhere that Oakland can’t stop anyone from moving to Oakland, so how would you stop this issue of gentrification? Would protesting really stop people from continuing to move to Oakland? It would be great to know your opinion on the matter. Overall, your blog shares a counter narrative of the citizens which is very important, but it’s also important to look at both perspectives. Great job at sharing your voice to the world. Keep up the great work!

    • Dear anthony,

      I am impressed with your post “How Does Gentrification Affect Oakland and its Community?”, because I did the same topic as you did. Also because what I wrote is similar to your work about what people of oakland think about gentrification. Most of the time they are immigrants that think gentrification is not good for them. One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is “there are many more houses and apartments being built, and more people have to move out to let the city build those houses/shops/buildings”. I thought that this was a really strong quote that you have because your interviewer talked about how people have to move away so they can build more shops/houses and that is bad for the people who are going to be moving away because they don’t have the power to stand up for themselves. Another sentence that I liked was, “Also, another reason people would get kicked out is because of prices going up” this stood out to me because it was really true that the rents are rise up. I have even experienced it with my family. We had to pay 100$ more so yeah I have experienced it myself. Another reason why I agree with you is that there have been a lot of changes and you're talked about that in your work. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you will write next, because I totally agree with you.

      I am amazed by Your post because some of the quotes you writing is was really cool. I like the way that you shows that how bad is Oakland and how is this affecting others. One of the sentence you wrote that stands out for me is ¨This was interesting to me because those places aren’t seen as significant and, as such, the city wants to make those places the prime target of gentrification because they aren’t as important as other wealthier neighborhoods and can be easily changed.¨I think this is a good sentence because it shows that how bad is gentrification in Oakland and how can this affect people. Another sentence that I was amazed by is Some may argue that more houses gives more people a chance to live in Oakland. For example, in the article “Brooklyn Rises on the Oakland Waterfront,” Kudler is describing what the proposed community of Brooklyn Basin would be like when it is built. This stood out for me because it sounds cool and the ways you said living in
      Thanks for your writing . I look forward to seeing what you write next, because like the bolg you writer and all the quotes you use in this blog.

  • Dear Salvador,

    I am glad about your post “The Shadow Box Project” because it is good to see people that are not afraid to show their stories through symbolism, how you did. The more people that share their stories, the more are going to be less afraid to share their own. I am also glad to see that you created your own box with your own materials…Read More

    Dear Kevin Wu,

    I feel empowered by your article, ¨The Hidden Story¨, because it explains (and talks about) many assumptions. I also like how you used really proffessional words like ¨dominant narrative¨, ¨counter narrative¨, ¨chosen identity¨, and more. But you should try to explain the definition of those words because there may be people…Read More
