Why does Oakland get such a bad rap in the media?

Oh goodness! Answers are only somewhat tongue-in-cheek: 

  1. We are the oft underappreciated and overlooked step-sister to San Francisco.
  2. Systemic forces outside of most residents’ control contribute to our social, political and economic parity issues.
  3. We are almost twice as big as SF in square mileage and half the size in population, so we feel like a town yet have all the urban issues that come with city life.
