    Businesses say the crackdowns by OPD and other agencies have been "heavy-handed" and have resembled "search and destroy" missions.

Re: “Kim Burrell

Great review Lee... I love this album. It is all about Love. Kim is one of the very few gospel artist I will listen to. She is just amazing on this album.

Re: “Police Targeting Oakland's Black Venues?

Typically responses.... You really have to understand the history between black communities and law enforcement and the white community. For some reason people don't believe those issues still exist. Well they do. But when you are closed minded and unable to accept the history of your race you always display the flaws of others while hiding your own.

It's not secret that whites are starting to move into Oakland and we all know when whites find it hard to co-exist with others. They prefer to take over.

I would not be surprised if black businesses in the downtown uptown area are being targeted. I have been to many of those venues listed and a good handful or them are ran exceptionally well. And you have those that hit under the mark just like some white businesses I have been too and Latin and Asian and Indian businesses. Why the blacks always get put on display as the negative is beyond me. America would not be America without black people adding all the flavor others try to capture.

I encourage people, especially here in the Bay Area to explore deeper into their own true history.
