Why did they stop showing at Century 16 Hilltop Mall?

Re: “West Oakland Finally Gets a Black Panther Mural

"It's the first Black Panther Party mural in Oakland to be painted by Black people."

Who painted the now-razed pink shed on Mandela with illustrations of Olympic medal winners Tommy Smith and John Carlos, which read "It only takes a pair of gloves," and later, "Born with insight, raised with a fist"?

Re: “The Boyfriend Experience

I sincerely didnt like the idea, but this is my way of saying thank you to the Quora user that recommended a hacker ( PRIVATEJOSH3@GMAIL.COM)

I hired him for a very private and difficult matter of helping me hack a my spouses phone and social networks and some other personal stuffs and he far exceeded my expectations. which Jeremie, helped me get the info(whatsapp, facebook, text messages, call logs etc) faster and cheaper than I had imagined. The first time we spoke, we had a very long phone consultation in he gave me all my options that he could think of to resolve my case, and he even recommended I try other options before hiring him, which shows that he is honest. I decided to hire him and I am glad I did. he is a fantastic investigator and a great person. If you need a professional, reliable and efficient hacker, then you should contact this guy ; PRIVATEJOSH3@GMAIL.COM
You can also call him or send him a text: +1 908 693 9476

Re: “A Scavenger Hunt in Temescal That Aims to Spotlight Small Businesses

This sounds awesome! I want to bring my family when they come to visit in a couple of months. Would love to see the Black-owned-business tour come to life.

Re: “A Scavenger Hunt in Temescal That Aims to Spotlight Small Businesses

The Trust Your Struggle mural was on 42nd and Telegraph. And it was proceeded by a Stop the Small Arms Trade mural that only lasted 3 days.

It was highly derivative of Frederick Wiseman's 1970 documentary Hospital. Nicks is a filmmaker in search of a raison d'etre.

Re: “The Force Fails to Tell the Real Story About OPD

Aw shucks.

Probably a few of us were hoping to shine some light on the "riddle, wrapped up in a mystery, inside an enigma" that the Oakland Police Department has been for so very long.

We've long accepted that city hall has little interest in what goes on
inside OPD so long as they avoid major scandals.

I guess we won't find out at the movies, either.

Re: “The Force Fails to Tell the Real Story About OPD

Seems like OPD may have had a high degree of editorial control in this documentary, in exchange for the access they provided the filmmaking team.

Re: “Dan Savage: My Boyfriend Can't Stop Fiddling With His Penis

There is so much misinformation and so many bogus products surrounding penis enlargement that when they discover the solution, no one will believe. So here goes; any male can permanently increase length and girth in the same way a bodybuilder adds mass and becomes larger. As you stress tissue, the body goes into a natural process of creating new cells making you larger. The question is not whether permanent enlargement is possible but instead, how do you safely stress penile tissue to promote cell growth? The answers can be found by looking up Magnum Rings on Facebook or online.

Re: “Stop Having Sex with a Nazi

Sad to see Nazism conflated with Trumpism. They are both diseases, but they are not the same disease. Nazism is a plague.

Re: “What East Bay Trivia Nights Say About Our Collective Knowledge (or Lack Thereof) of Non-White History and Culture

Well, duh, Cutty Sark.
I think you need to be a certain age to know that one, not a certain color.
If you want diversity in your trivia, come to the THERE reading series at the Octopus Literary Salon on the third Friday of each month. Our LitQuiz is always a balanced mix of questions about authors and books, including men, women, living, dead, of all races, colors, etc. I try really, really hard to mix the current and the classic. And our lineup of readers is as diverse as they come. Mostly women, many of color. I'm often the only straight white guy on the bill. But most importantly, it's fun. Check us out!
One more point: you need diversity on your team, too, if you want to have an enjoyable trivia night. A team of all white guys in their 50s probably won't get any of the hiphop questions. A team of all miillennials of color probably won't ace a test given by a white guy of 50.

Re: “What East Bay Trivia Nights Say About Our Collective Knowledge (or Lack Thereof) of Non-White History and Culture

Would that be Cutty Sark? I'd be glad to the token strategic white girl on a trivia team. I can cover the WASP and Jewish realms, European history, geography, pre-Millennial celebs and more!

Re: “What East Bay Trivia Nights Say About Our Collective Knowledge (or Lack Thereof) of Non-White History and Culture

I think it might just be easier at this point to make a list of what's NOT racist.

Re: “What East Bay Trivia Nights Say About Our Collective Knowledge (or Lack Thereof) of Non-White History and Culture

This article brings up an interesting issue: what should the questions actually reflect? Should it be the demographics of the USA? Of Oakland? Of the people at the particular bar?

Re: “Fear and Loathing in (the New) Oakland

The American dream of freedom. Is it really dead? Let's see ...

LBGT people are enjoying the hell out of their new freedoms. Immigrants driven here from their original countries are enjoying the hell out of their new freedoms. Black people are free to push back against racist police for the first time since the police killed off the Panthers. Unions are free to challenge the paternalism of Musk, one of the world's richest men in one of the world's richest communities. Women politicians are free to stand up against the craziest, meanest misogynist president we've had in memory. Even whacko ranchers denying federal jurisdiction over federal lands are enjoying their freedom to intimidate federal marshalls.

I'd say our freedoms are pretty much intact. Defending them is a never-ending struggle against the forces of evil, but so far we're hanging tough.
