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.

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!

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

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.

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

What's so strange about Oakland is that while parts of it is gentrifying and developing rapidly, others parts languish in squalor. There is still plenty of poverty and "hoodlums, brawlers, teenage gangs and racial tension" in Oakland.

It was a great event. I was honored to be a part of this exhibition n't contributing an audio story from my childhood growing up in Oakland.

Goodbye Raiders, don't let the door hit in you in the butt on the way out. You've sucked Oakland dry for far too long.

Re: “Counseling Carnivores with Will Tuttle

eating or cooking vegetables - that are aLIVE!!! biting them!!! can't you hear them screaming!!!?
Livestock raised in correct farming practices are not the great polluters of reputation.
How about all the poisons put onto the land to grow the produce! in this raped land! We need to farm other ways! Many farms. Many opera houses and health clinics and homes next to many farms farmed sensibly - You need to learn what that is - sensible farming. normaha@pacbell.net

Re: “Counseling Carnivores with Will Tuttle

mean meat eaters - like all those tribes of people - particularly in northern latitudes - but all over the world - all those mean people !!!!? who weren't particularly mean until moralizers came along to say they all are!!! I don't think so. People needing to find a way to scold other people, to tell other people that they - the discoverers of this or that 'bad' behavior - are above those bad behave-ers - like school teachers, and preachers-priests. We need to stop creating that class of people - normaha@pacbell.net

Re: “Dan Savage The Sports Writer Comes Off the Bench for Dan Savage the Sex Columnist

OMG!! This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony i have ever
seen..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 20TH OF JUNE 2014,
after my husband separated me and my marriage of 8 years was broken down
and i was totally inconsolable and without hope because i have tried all
means to get my husband back after much pleading and did everything
possible to make sure that he comes back, but nothing worked out for me....
And i saw a marvelous testimony with this email dress

AKHERETEMPLE@GMAIL.COM

of this powerful and great spell caster called
Dr Akhere on the forum.. And i saw how Dr Akhere reunited a family and
brought the Husband of a woman back to her in just 24 hours..I never
believed it, because i never heard nor learnt anything about magic before..
Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not
until Dr Akhere did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me
and brought my spouse back to me in the same 24 hours just as i read on the
internet..i was truly astonished and shocked when my husband came to my
house and knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him
back.. I am really short of expressions, and i don't know how much to
convey my appreciation to you Dr Akhere you are certainly a God sent to me
and my entire life and family.. he did his work just as he guaranteed me in
24 hours and it yielded an optimistic result to me and i was able to get my
Husband back. right now my Husband has falling so much in love with me and
my kids like never before. This spell casting isn't brain washing but he
opened up his eyes to see how much i love and wanted him, i really don't
know how best to be grateful to you Dr Akhere for bringing happiness into
my life and family, and now i am a joyful woman once again.. here is his

Re: “Savage Love: A Cuckold's Fantasy

I have an expert who is reliable in Hacking,i met him through a contact named Jeremie, and I was scared at first to give him a trust,after all i had encountered with previous hackers but I am glad to say I didn't regret my actions as QUICKSOLUTION040@GMAIL.COM helped me hack into my ex phone and gave me proof. I have been in a lying ass relationship all along,i will forever be grateful to you QUICKSOLUTION040@GMAIL.COM ,please contact him and tell him from Brenda as i owe him all my life for saving me at the moment.

Re: “Savage Love: Mail Bag

I sincerely didnt like the idea, but this is my way of saying thank you to the Quora user that recommended a hacker ( QUICKSOLUTION040@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 ; QUICKSOLUTION040@GMAIL.COM
