For anyone that refers to Oakland as a "wasteland", economically or otherwise, here's even more proof that they are wrong. The common perception of Oakland is a misperception.
Here's the best part (link listed below):
"Oakland beat tech-centric San Jose in this scholarship smackdown. The Census survey found that 13.1 percent of Oaklanders have advanced degrees, making it the 14th smartest city in the nation, while San Jose, where 12.2 percent of those over 25 have advanced degrees, ranked 19th."
(Last thing: I'm not talking trash about the South Bay, which is a place that I like. But this is yet another reminder that the negative hype about Oakland is just that -- hype.)
If they're so friggin smart, why'd they sign that deal with the Raiders?
