Re: “Racial Profiling Via Nextdoor.com

Again with the capitalization of "black," but not "white." I will keep asking the question until I get a (non-PC bulls--t) answer).

Re: “OPD Responds to Noise Complaints by White Man Against Black Drummers at Lake Merritt, Sparks Concerns About Racial Profiling

If you are going to capitalize "black," why wouldn't you capitalize "white?"

Re: “BART Riders Racially Profile via Smartphone App

If you are going to capitalize the "b" in "black," then shouldn't you capitalize the "w" in "white?" I mean, why wouldn't you?

Re: “Can Realtors Rebrand Oakland?

Area resident here with a strong opinion on this topic. I happen to live in the Longfellow neighborhood and while I dislike the name "NOBE," I also don't understand what difference it makes what this area gets called. We have way bigger fish to fry than what moniker ends up sticking. I agree with Mr. Arias: realtors and other business people have the right to call it whatever they want and the community has the right to accept it or reject it. And if we want jobs to come to the area, jobs that many insist are one of the solutions to Oakland's poverty and crime problem, then those jobs just happen to come with residents who have the means to not only start those businesses, but patronize them and therefore keep those businesses' employees employed.

Re: “Grease Box, Phat Beets, and the 'G' Word

This would be hilarious if it weren't so infuriating. So much for "diversity" and "inclusion." We will only include you if you are and think just like us! Phat Beets are a bunch of bullies. They need to step aside and let the grown-ups run the businesses in Oakland.
