Re: “Report: Profound Racial Disparities in Mortgage Lending Seen in Oakland

My name is Judy i read a post online about Mr Ramsy Dave three days ago when i was searching for online loan lenders. So i was convince about this lovely testimonies i read about him which makes me to contact him for a loan. I was asked to fill the loan application form which i did, they provided me all the necessary document which i also signed and we came to the last step which i was asked to pay for insurance i was scared to pay this because of my past experience, but i took one step of faith because there is is a saying faith without work is useless i paid the fee and i was credited the sum of $50,000 within 5 hours.

I want to quickly advice anybody that need urgent loan to contact Mr Ramsy Dave for any amount of loan he will be able to help if you can trust him and work with him. Contact his email at: ramsedave121@gmail.com

Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

I took my daughters to San Francisco Friday to join the protestors. We had police officers walking with us the entire time, and at least 6 Officers on motorcycles riding ahead of us to manage traffic. This is what Democracy looks like. It was powerful and peaceful.

When people ask me why I am protesting, my answer is this: When should we protest? Should we do it now under the leadership and protection of President Obama, or should we begin during President Trump's term? The comprehension that spreads across their face as they really realize 'Why Now' is heartbreaking.

Protesting visibly displays public consciousness. You can see his attempts to appear more measured on the 60 mins interview.

Only 2-3 Million deported (vs 11 Million). Keep these parts of Obamacare. Keep the pressure on by staying visible.

Silence got us into this. Your public visible voices are a vital tool to get us out.

Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

The protest today allowed me to let my heart start to heal. It gave me hope seeing so many of my fellow countryman pulling together for the same reasons. We are very frightened of what's coming from a president that did everything he could to provoke hate. Dones it change anything? Probably not. But the message it sends is very clear. AND the healing it has allowed us to start is greatly needed. My heart broken for Hillary, for all women in this country, for every immigrant except Melania, for everyone that's not white, for everyone who has a religion not accepted in Trump land and for all the lgbtq community and for myself and my family.

Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

It's clear that some people aren't reading Cynthia's post clearly. She's asking rhetorical questions, and saying that the protesters should not be judged for expressing themselves how they see fit. To those that misunderstood - please be more careful. Misunderstandings are a big part of what fuels the misgivings the different sides of this situation have with each other. It also can generate infighting and friendly fire, as demonstrated here.
And to MIKEM, yes, please cite your sources for your absentee ballot comment regarding the popular vote results.

Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

What this protest did for me was help to heal my broken heart and allow me to feel less frightened. I have not been able to sleep and have cried a alot since the election. It was indeed magical to join hands in healing solidarity. It gave me so much hope.

MIKEM What is your source for saying that Trump won the popular vote if absentee ballots are counted?

Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

These protests, this one and all the others, are completely unprecedented in U.S. history. They signal to the President elect that he is deeply unpopular and should act accordingly.

Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

It's great that you had a peaceful protest and it's one thing that America allows that other countries don't. As a Trump supporter, I, like you, protested as well. But I and millions like me protested in the voting booth. We were tired of big government taking away our rights, tired of being told how to think, and tired of being able to express our opinions only if they were the same as yours. So as I agree that you have the right to peacefilly protest the Trump election, please agree that I and people like me have the right to vote him in. And before the "popular vote" argument is brought up, Trump won that as well if we would count the absentee ballots.

Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

This was not a protest against Trump per se - this was a way to stand FOR something vs against it. In the words of the organizer: "The intention behind Hands Around Lake Merritt is healing and empowerment through standing together in solidarity, widening our embrace with all those impacted by this presidential election. We are not here to tell people how to be during this event. We welcome the full range of feeling from a stance of nonviolence. We stand in solidarity with all peoples, all traditions and all feelings."

It was, per another post...magical. To stand shoulder to shoulder with thousands of people who will stand up for inclusion, acceptance and equal rights for all. It's why I live in Oakland.

Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

Cynthia - and anyone that wonders - This gathering gave hope to my 14 year old daughter. That does amazing things. It makes her want to get out of bed and go to school. It makes her feel safe. If you aren't a minority, be grateful that you may not experience harassment. Peaceful gatherings like these spread love and hope to those that need it right now. I am hoping that Trump does do a good job and I'm going to give him a chance, but I will not stop doing activities to spread love and remind all those disenfranchised that they are welcome here and that I want them here.

3.7 miles = 19,536 feet
For as far as I could see to my left and right there were about 3 people per foot. Assume the average was half that because of being a denser area (though I was nowhere near any of the more iconic or photogenic sections, then I would have estimated around 30,000. 5-10,000 seems impossibly low.

Cynthia: Protesting HELPS COMMUNICATE to 'the powers that be' ~ to Trump ~ and to The World how we feel, what we think and what we want. Peaceful protest is essential in democracy.... If a nation without popular vote rule can be considered a democracy. Be well!
