Re: “Oakland Officials Want to Ban Flavored Blunt Wrappers, Two-Pack Cigars, And Vape Juice

What about all the flavored liquors? Ban them too? Adults like sweet flavorings just as much as kids. I haven't smoked a cigarette since 2009 thanks to vaping.

Thank you Senator Skinner for this bold move. Why don't they use that money to fix the failing bridges and infrastructure?

No loss, except for the greedy tobacco profiteers.

Adults love flavors too. Did your taste buds die at 21? Vaping works better than all other cessation methods combined and flavors are a big part of that.

Honestly, those things are poison. But supporting a government that wants to step in and manage your day to day life is far more poisonous.

Re: “Day After Deadly West Oakland Apartment Fire, City Modified Real Estate Deal to Financially Benefit Negligent Landlord

As if to illustrate my point, I just received the following information from a reputable cohort who is involved in this relief effort: "Just found out that the major City-approved fundraiser for the San Pablo fire survivors is going to be disbursed in the form of.....drumroll....Target gift cards. On May 12th. I can't even.
But wait, you wanna know why? Because people are "too likely to use cash to fund drug and alcohol habits." Let's just unpack that one while people run out of money for motels this week, and get picked up for sleeping in cars, and our encampments on Northgate, Brush, Magnolia, and Wood Streets grow ever larger. "

Re: “Day After Deadly West Oakland Apartment Fire, City Modified Real Estate Deal to Financially Benefit Negligent Landlord

The way the City of Oakland has neglected and dismissed these victims, our neighbors, is atrocious and serves as yet another glaring, unvarnished example of the depth and pervasiveness of gentrification and displacement at the hands of our leaders. It is sickening in it's obviousness and disgracefully unkind.

Re: “Oakland Nonprofit The Hood Incubator Helps Entrepreneurs Of Color Break Into The Cannabis Industry

when the public compares the welfare of blacks to whites, they do not consider the more stable members of the black community, they always focus on the noise that is being made to draw attention like the celebrities and athletes, etc. there is a mainstream in the black community as with the general community where every body is not making noise but just going about their business and living their own lives. if you were to ask many of these regulars if they had the chance to return to the days of the forties, fifties and sixties in this country many would gladly return to those days. everything is not about comparing these with those as some of us live our lives as absolutely as we can and are satisfied to do that without comparing themselves to others. we call this the good life and to be able to live the good life free of constant comparisons where it is already determined who will come up short. when i first entered college in the deep south, i know for a fact there were teachers in white schools that had nothing to do with degrees or credentials. it was just white business and no one else's. but, i had to get the degrees and then come back to the black community for sharing. with some cultures, there is the notion that if you keep those that might pose a threat to you in the dark, you won't have to do much yourself to stay ahead. keeping blacks in the dark via slavery, segregation, seperation and satanism has resulted in a general knowledge that any race, not just the white race in america can out pace blacks in this country. that is because all they do is pull out the comparison charts and as usual blacks always come up short. if blacks do not treat themselves as absolutes and equals, other races wil not either. why look around for god in someone else? it begins with you, it continues with you and it will end with you.
