Re: “West Oakland Gets an East Coast-Style Italian Deli

That the owners are either born in west oakland or long term past oakland residents eases the blow of this existing. As a Black 20+ year resident of Oakland, driving past this store makes me sad. it's gentrification at its best. The city has little to no youth development in that area and a school with a long history that Oakland Unified School District is doing its best to destroy and dismantle. I want to wish them the best and most of me does but in these times, its addition to the neighborhood makes me want to scream! Now that from out-of-state white googlers and the like are driving Black folks out of west oakland there's a deli. Just great. Yay!!!

Re: “Oakland’s Only Nigerian Restaurant Makes Way for a New Beer Garden

In was born and raised in Oakland, and live with my wife and kid in our home in the Laurel. The outrage in this page is ridiculous and misplaced. I've been waiting for a spot like this beer garden here for over 20 years. I can't wait for my family and I to become regulars there.

Re: “Oakland’s Only Nigerian Restaurant Makes Way for a New Beer Garden

I look forward to this beer garden coming to my neighborhood. Congratulations Paul for fulfilling your dream.
Also Sequoia Diner is the best breakfast and lunch ever!
I just wish they were open 7 days a week!

Re: “Study Finds that Bay Area Restaurants Have the Largest Race-Based Pay Gap in the Country

Isn't it also possible that more FOH employees at Kingston 11 are POC because their ethnicity matches that of the cuisine? Is that a reasonable consideration in hiring? (Genuine, not rhetorical, question.)

Come to think of it, do Asian servers (at Asian restaurants) count as POC? If so, I'm a bit surprised that Bay Area restaurants scored so low on equality. ;-)

Re: “Why Does the Berkeley City Council Care About a Dog Meat Festival in China?

Probably the same reason why Indians in India might protest against Americans for eating beef.
