Re: “Hawker Fare Aims to Go Out With a Bang

Passing of an OakAsian institution. I'm a white guy so don't know my Asian cuisine as well as natives who've lived it, but I'm putting this right up there with the disappearance of some other OakAsian moderately priced institutions...like the old V's on Webster and Bun Mam Soc Trang near 14th Ave.

(http://www.eastbayexpress.com/WhatTheFork/…)

Correct me if I'm wrong Luke, as your live and work this stuff.

There are certainly still a few hidden gems at reasonable prices. But these three were as good as anything in NYC. And unfortunately this is one white guy who doesn't have the money to follow V's back to Southeast Asia...

Re: “Daughter Thai Brings Intense Southern Thai Flavors to the Oakland Hills

People who live in Montclair today didn't choose the restaurants that are in the village. Rents are incredibly high, there's little available retail space due to too many realtors on the ground floor, and that is what determines who can stay, who can't come in. People who live in Montclair eat in restaurants all over Oakland. Don't equate white with non-adventurous eating.

Re: “Two Highly Touted Oakland Charter Schools Quickly Closed, Now Owe the District Money

Olis Simmons sucks millions of dollars from the City of Oakland for her Youth Uprising agency - where she brought in the filthy misogynist rapper Too Short as a "career counselor," hired a "dance instructor" who was caught molesting a subteen girl, and farmed out teens for E-40's rap video in praise of reckless driving. Oh, by the way, she is an incompetent, overpaid manager. No wonder Jean Quan launched her 2010 mayoral campaign from Simmons's Youth Uprising facilities. ... The Express gave Simmons a pass for years, even defending the same anti-social rappers that she foisted on the children. Now that Simmons' opportunism led her to tie up with a vulture capitalist of education, we finally get light on a bit of her plunder.

some of that money should be going to fix Oakland problems. Like putting more police on the street, fixing housing or feeding the homeless there.

Re: “Gray Area, Leading Ghost Ship Fire-Relief Fundraiser, Hasn't Distributed a Dime

Josette Melchor - grayarea.org
For years She has given all of Her energy, passion, and creativity to assist artists and/or create safe spaces for them to realize their visions. She always has rented spaces that were dilapidated and forgotten and brings them back to a beaming glory. San Francisco is blessed to have Her, and the many that She befriends, employs, and respects! She will do what She says She will do. She is not only looking to the past of the ones lost, but to the future so this tragedy never happens again. You have handled this fund with business savvy, grace and class all the while going through loss yourself. The critics should be silent and gracious. There is documented contact with the person that was interviewed in this article- so again a little fact checking needs to be the norm not the exception!

Re: “Poll: White, Affluent Oaklanders Happiest. Black Residents Least Happy. And Everyone's Freaked Out By Housing Crisis.

The differentiation between information and opinion seems to be non-existent. Analysis seems to be something that EBX does not want or need for its writings.

Exactly what analysis was performed to determine that "Everyone's Freaked Out By Housing Crisis" (article title) given the fact that 29% identified housing costs/affordability as the number 1 priority and 10% identified it as the number 2 priority.

So, for 61% of the respondents, housing costs/affordability was, at best, the 3rd highest priority. Therefore "everyone is freaked out?"

Oh, and zero of the survey that was performed and analyzed identified root cause. But, the author, without any apparent reasoning, determined that "happiness" differences were rooted in "racial segregation, redlining, deindustrialization, job discrimination, the drug war, and most recently the foreclosure crisis."

Well done EBX. It is horrible enough that Trump has his own set of "alternative facts."

Re: “Oakland's Toxic Lead Contamination Isn't in the Water. It's in the Buildings and Dirt, and It's Bad.

I also wanted to add, what about the fact the Alameda Naval Air Station is a Superfund site (nothing super about that...). According to the EPA web site,

"All liquid industrial wastewaters generated at the site prior to 1974 were discharged untreated into Seaplane Lagoon and the Oakland Inner Harbor."

Re: “Poll: White, Affluent Oaklanders Happiest. Black Residents Least Happy. And Everyone's Freaked Out By Housing Crisis.

"White people with college educations and six-figure incomes who live in North Oakland and around Lake Merritt are "most happy" with the city's quality of life."

Stupendous insight!

"All Oaklanders are willing to pay higher taxes to support better services, almost across the board."

Maybe all such Oaklanders don't understand that a third of the fixed high housing costs they complain about go to pay property taxes. In addition Oakland/Alameda County is hardly modest regarding sales and other taxes and fees.

On the other hand there are significant areas in which Oakland's services amount to so little, and the need is sufficiently high, that people will give even more. Should I point out public safety?

Re: “Poll: White, Affluent Oaklanders Happiest. Black Residents Least Happy. And Everyone's Freaked Out By Housing Crisis.

It's great how the East Bay Express publishes articles like this that dive deep into the topic of the rich diversity in Oakland... by only talking about its Black and White residents.

Re: “To Undermine Sanctuary Cities, Trump Orders Cuts for Lead Safety, Homeless Shelters, Childcare, Many Other Programs

Trump is a divisive racist fascist that doesn't care if he tears apart that some many worked really hard to make happen. The pen being mightier that the sword has stopped millions of FEDERAL DOLLARS assistance to these sanctuary cities. This bigoted P.O.S P.O.T.U.S. is the largest delusional manchild that I have ever seen in my lifetime. He scares the hell out of me.

We should stop sending our tax dollars to the federal government. We give more than we get. The states that elected this pariah get more than they give.

Re: “Two Highly Touted Oakland Charter Schools Quickly Closed, Now Owe the District Money

So the OUSB President is on two boards of the non profit charters...or are/were they for profit schools?

I am going to guess he was getting paid for these board positions, highly irregular and perhaps illegal.

Yes nepotism is and has been rampant in Oakland, in both the schools and City jobs.

This looks an ugly corrupt and expensive failure

What if you'all reduced OPD ranks by 53 people and formed a professional football team? Then you could spend that extra $10M on homelessness, schools and affordable housing. Would that work?
