Seems a bit more impromptu. 2019 out here!
Y'all leave us the hell alone. Unless y'all really here to help us.
This is the edge, bro! The final frontier of Manifest Destiny. Last edge of the city. Man, two steps further, you'll be drinking that filthy saltwater. But we built these ships. Dredged these canals. In the San Francisco they never knew existed. And now they come to build something new? Whole blocks half in the past, half in the future. But should you venture into their San Francisco, the one they pillaged for gold! Remember your truth! In the city of facades.
Spoiling all the fun, leveling most of this neighborhood in the name of Urban Renewal. Sorry about your homes and your funky shops. You can set up a shoeshine stand in front of the parking lot at Safeway. But you distinguished truth-seekers want to know about the real hep cats who hung out here, in the "Harlem of the West," where a few of these homes did survive. Like this beauty here, which was built clear back in the 1800s. Before the black thing, this was all Japanese, till FDR's stormtroopers rounded them up into camps.
People aren't one thing. That. All... All of it. What would have happened if Kofi could've showed himself? All forms of himself. The world put him in a box! And he never pushed beyond it. Let us. Let us break the boxes! Let us give each other the courage! To... To see! Beyond the stories we are born into! Let us all really look at Jimmie Fails IV. Self-taught historian. Carpenter. Gentle, loving man. A true survivor.
But if you leave it's not your loss. It's San Francisco's.
This city blows. Big time. I mean, whatever, I'm not above living in a former crack house, you know? But, I came here for Janis and the Airplane, not to work at a fxcking startup.
-Dude, I've been saying for months, let's just move to East LA. This city's dead. Nah. Seriously, fxck this city.
--'Scuse me? You don't get to hate San Francisco.
-I'm sorry, what?
--Yeah, dude, I mean...
-Sorry, but I'll hate what I want.
--Do you love it?
-It's... I mean yeah, I'm here. But do I have to love it?
--You don't get to hate it unless you love it.
