Re: “Berkeley Is First City in America to Divest From Companies that Work on Trump's Border Wall

George Rockwell:
1) It has been proven time and time again that there is no connection between high crime rates and high immigrant populations in fact the opposite is true. Undocumented workers receive no benefits. And if you'd like a lesson on how a loss of immigrant workers effects farms here you go:

2) A wall would cost at least 15 billion of taxpayers' money, would be ineffectual at actually keeping anyone out and would be impossible to implement over most of the terrain it seeks to cover. It would be a complete embarrassment and a waste.

3) You know who can't stop whining and crying and needs a safe space to express his little self? Milo. If you spend your life spewing hateful rhetoric and ruining people's lives, you're going to get angry protestors (and I'm not talking about Blac Block setting fires. They are just violent trolls). He needs to suck it up. Free speech does not protect you from negative consequences. It does protect the right to protest however.

4) "emotional like a black lady"? Saying immigrants are only "stealing" jobs from black people? I guess you're the president of Milo's fan club.

5) You want to see a real embarrassment? Look in the mirror.

Re: “Little Simz Rolls Through The New Parish

I love the author's insight that Little Simz plays on Alice in Wonderland to describe her time occupying space in the entertainment industry as a Black femme MC. What abt the industry gives Simz the feelings provoked in the album - erratic happiness, feelings of uncontrollability and emotional precarity, power imbalance? How does Little Simz communicate journeying through (at least enough to come out lucid and report back from Wonderland) using the Industry as a platform for these critiques of power? I would love to hear the thoughts of the author of this blurb on topics like these in future articlesz

I could tell you what is wrong with a wall... but then again you need to learn your lessons yourself, as usual.
Love from a country that learned its lesson from nazis and walls and painfully well.

Re: “Berkeley Is First City in America to Divest From Companies that Work on Trump's Border Wall

Could someone please explain to me what's wrong with having a wall? Is it immoral to ask for individuals to obtain passage into this country legally? Do not illegals undercut the wages of your average blue collar worker? Are we not concerned about poverty and crime in America? Do you not care about your black countrymen who are in direct competition with illegals concerning jobs?

And the Mayor wants to talk about not building walls, yet had no problem in supporting the Antifa wall that kept Milo from giving his speech. If people are so concerned about speech triggering them or inciting hate perhaps you should do a better job as parents and professors in raising your kids to think critically and with reason, not with emotion like some black female.

Berkeley is a national embarrassment.

Re: “Bay Area Activists Protest Peter Thiel's Partnership With Immigration and Customs Enforcement

As a wise sage from the 20th century suggested, "the media is the message". And the message here is that the media you are using is creating data that is being used for someone else's profit and, in some cases, against you and your interests. Take action and disconnect from Fakebook, Pay Pal, Amazon, iTunes, etc.

Re: “These Bay Area Businesses Want to Build Trump's Border Wall

Who is the oakland city council kidding they don't have money to do any large projects. When the Raiders flee they will have even less and will be still paying for an empty coliseum. They think they are so smart.

Re: “Lady Esther’s Rises Once Again, Now in Downtown Oakland

This is awesome news! My cousin knew Ms Lady Esther well as he was one of her food service vendors. I remember when she died - a very sad day in Oakland. My father, who is now 85 yrs young frequented her restaurant and remembers fondly how kind and Ms. lady Esther was.

Re: “Lady Esther’s Rises Once Again, Now in Downtown Oakland

I pray she brings back the stuffed shrimp . I remember my uncle Green Hodges used to clean the restaurant. My oldest daughters baby picture hung in the main area. Those were the days!

Overall, predictable, Once again the 'fair maiden" did what no amount of napalm could accomplish. Alas, my 118 minutes of being young and impressionable are over - back to reality.

Re: “Oakland Officials Question Police Partnerships with Federal Immigration Agents and FBI

Police are not there to interpret which laws to enforce. They're there to enforce all laws. These "People" are also draining resources from the people who are here legally.

Are we saying that it's okay to lie, cheat, and steal? Really?? That's what you tell your children, family and friends.

Re: “Port Chicago 50 Brings History to the Stage

This write up is incorrect and misleading. The explosion led to a work stoppage one month later not prior to the explosion. Do some research. Lance Zenobia

@margeret cunningham....."our people" about that homeless veteran on the corner that we give a smaller stipend than the the illegal alien gets. Illegal aliens are not "our people"

Re: “Oakland Officials Question Police Partnerships with Federal Immigration Agents and FBI

Enforce the law. Can't pick and choose.....So the murderer of Kate Steinle would not be reported to ICE because Oakland is a sanctuary city....??? Don't make me laugh....solve the crime,protect Americans....OPD takes an oath to defend the Constitution. The lady killed by the 5 time deported, multiple felon,illegal alien driving drunk in Los Angeles would not be apprehended here ,because DUI is a misdemeanor...not really a crime...WTF is wrong with us

Re: “Skate Or DIY: Why Is It So Damn Hard To Build A Skate Park In Oakland?

I founded the privately paid for Montclair Mini with help from K Dub, the vice mayor and other departments, in Montclair Park. Sadly, we had many in the community who did not want local skaters to have their own space to skate.
Despite this, we not only have a beautiful wooden halfpipe and we are planning a second phase. Excited to see more parks for the Oakland skate community!

Re: “These Bay Area Businesses Want to Build Trump's Border Wall

The American Steel "Studios" you mentioned recently changed ownership in October 2016. I'd like to point out that the NEW owners of the American Steel building did not acquire the use of the name "American Steel Studios" and their business choices do not represent the artists and other tenants there.
The building itself is now called "American Steel" and the property management company is Ventura Parners, who I'm pretty sure are NOT placing bids on building a border wall. Tenants there do not know the identity of actual owners so don't bother asking.
However, the PREVIOUS OWNER of the building is more likely to be the "bidder" of a border wall since he is a known racist and Trump supporter which is a fact, not my opinion.
He owns half of West Oakland industrial land so, I'm sure you can easily find his name.
But, I strongly suggest you get all your research information straight before bashing the reputation of a collection of underappreciated local artists and fabricators, or the real estate management company that takes care of them.
