What's With Oakland's Classist Enforcement of Parking Regulations?

Oakland, what is with you lately?

You've got racist landladies. Racially tinged fights erupt on your buses. Black people get shot by cops for no reason (okay, fine, that wasn't exactly your fault).

And now this. The Chron reports that you've cracked down on parking enforcement in the neighborhoods of your neediest, and given a free pass to the well-heeled in Monclair and Broadway Terrace. Not only that, but one of your senior parking enforcement supervisors even left a paper trail proving you did this.

We wanted to believe there was some explanation.
