This is all a part of the new San Francisco. Its not about brown or whitish pink or yellow...its about green. Outright greed is the order of the day now. Unless you have a credit score of 3000, no one will rent to you. Unless you make over 6 figures a year, you cant possibly survive AND prosper. If you want to open a business here, prepare to bleed for it. Ever had your car towed? If not, I hope you have about 1000...and thats just what it costs if you get it out on the first day. 2200 a month for a studio on ofarrell, right near all the crack zombies. Food costs 35% higher than most places. Something more than just gentrification is happening...soon, SF wont even be a city. It will be strictly for the upper class and extremely wealthy to live here and the servant class will be both bridge and tunnel in addition to unwanted after work hours. Those bars with snob patrons and douchebag bartenders trying hard to look like extras from Boardwalk Empire (you know who you are), trying to sell you Fernet (its not even booze its a digestife AND it tastes like black licorice diarrhea) for 10 bucks a shot...they arent for you.
Whatever. The streets smell like animal and human wastes, my early morning run looks like the Walking Dead with crazies and dopefiends at every turn, dbags and genuinely rude elitist wannabes are everywhere in corny skinny jeans or mom jeans (neither are cool), eastbay goons, hot food tax, subpar living conditions...Im over it. After 15 years Im taking my close to a million dollars and bouncing right on out of the city.
