Re: “The Laney College Opposition

Thinking that the ballpark won't kill Laney off and that all the fans will suddenly take public transport to get there and we Oaklanders won't be paying for any of the improvements demanded of the infrastructure is blindness caused by dollar signs. Build out the Coliseum site with a great, human scale, attractive ballpark, help create a support community around that. Ballparks do not need to be superimposed on an existing neighborhood.

Re: “Justice League Is a Cheap-Looking Spectacle

This is an idiotic review. The movie is fun and exciting. Not as good as the recent Marvel movies, clearly, but much better than past DC efforts and headed in the right direction. Affleck and Cavil were good as well as Gadot and Ezra Miller. The problem was the dialogue, angst for Cyborg and Aquaman, who were played by mediocre actors. Nolan damaged the DC franchise with too much pretentious style and Zack Snyder is a so-so director. Warners made a huge mistake

Re: “Justice League Is a Cheap-Looking Spectacle

Well, you're right about showing the audience contempt... only that it didn't come from the movie, but the critic who can easily state that fans will convince themselves they are watching a good movie ...

Only if I could do the same about reading a review...

Re: “Citing Possible School Closures and Fiscal Problems, Oakland School Board Denies New Charter School Petition

The student on the board has been poorly trained in Public School governance. Not really her fault; the adults do not seem to understand their jobs either. The Board members may not legally "vote against the proposal out of philosophical opposition to charters." The Board's role is to see that the laws governing public schools are implemented fairly, consistently, and without bias and/or discrimination. They are NOT legislators. Charter law is clear and OUSD staff knows that this school meets all requirements. Too bad our Bd of Ed is more interested in grandstanding than good governance.

Re: “New Oakland Law Fails to Protect Low-Income Residents

So the owner of the hotel can't sell it because people live there? Well, is it that entity's obligation to keep things status quo instead of exercising the right of ownership to do with the property as what is most economically viable? Get government and activists out of private property where it doesn't deal with zoning and usage. Have the City buy the property then if they want to continue having it adorn the streets as a flop house. Might as well.

Re: “Cases Against Police Officers Who Sexually Exploited Underage Girl Known as Celeste Guap Fall Apart

I'm seeing more outrage over Al Franken's "gesture" towards a woman's boobs - than is being exhibited over what happened to this woman. THIS IS THE OUTRAGE! The fact we seem to have a double standard about who we are getting "offended" over the way they're being treated! NINE WOMEN WERE RAPED BY JAMES DEEN - AND I DON'T SEE ANYONE TALKING ABOUT "RETRAINING" THE PORN INDUSTRY!!! #METOO www.sexworkersanonymous.com

Re: “Why Aren't There More Latinx Nights in Oakland?

Surprised there was no mention of Club 21 in Uptown Oakland. It's only one of the Largest Latinx Nightclubs in northern California with some of the biggest Latinx parties on Fridays and Saturday nights in the Bay Area usually over 400 people easy on a Friday or Saturday night. This Friday alone Amanda Miguel is performing live there. Club 21 and Club BNB have nights available for Latinx promoters looking to put on events as well.

Re: “New Oakland Law Fails to Protect Low-Income Residents

Our council members often pass feel-good legislation but don't follow through to make it effective. I can't speak to whether they intend these measures to work or just to look like they've accomplished something but in the end, it doesn't matter. Business as usual continues on.

Re: “New Oakland Law Fails to Protect Low-Income Residents

this totally sucks, you buy up buildings instead of doing repairs, etc. you sell it out from under people who need to have a roof our their heads. More tent cities anyone.

Re: “New Oakland Law Fails to Protect Low-Income Residents

Shame on the dysfunctional, probably corrupt, Oakland governance. Rich people should not get to break the law and profit from doing so.

Re: “Why Aren't There More Latinx Nights in Oakland?

Yo - respect to all the people who commented above, whether or not you got mentioned in the article the community sees you and recognizes your contribution. It's probably important to remember that in a brief article like this it's not going to be possible to explore everything on the subject. Not to take away from your comments at all, just an observation.

Maybe that is an illustration that the Latinx scene isn't as unified as it could be, and this could be a starting point to communicate and collaborate more. I've been to a number of the nights mentioned above, but not all of them, and if we're really trying to all promote Latinx music and culture it's important to connect and build a community around it. When the actors in any given "scene" are supportive of each other's efforts it only works to strenthen that community.Nightlife and the Music world can be territorial and cutthroat, but if we can all recognize each other and help inform our respective networks of the vibrant events that each touch on different styles, cultures, and focuses I think there could be a huge change.

Re: “Fourth Ex-City Worker Alleges Oakland Auditor Abuse

Good the know that the City has a "Code of Conduct" for its employees. But who protects those who do business with the City against arbitrary and harmful behavior by those employees --often driving them out of business? Guess we won't be asking the Auditor to investigate....

Re: “Why Aren't There More Latinx Nights in Oakland?

I agree with some of the challenges this article mentions that exist for DJs and promoters but I wonder how much research was done sine the writer failed to mention several Latinx events that have been going strong for years in Oakland. Here is a list:
Fresquecito at Bissap Baobab with DJ WaltDigz
La Rumba Que Tumba with DJ Leydis at Brix
Sunday Funday at Caa with DJ Mayky
Salsa by the Lake - free event by Issac Koss
TUMBAO - Msica Cubana at Lukas Taproom & Lounge with DJ JuanLove every Thursday night. Ive been doin this event for 5 years now, 3 of which have been at Lukas.

Re: “Why Aren't There More Latinx Nights in Oakland?

Here in Concord, Vinnie's has designated Thursdays Salsa Night for l don't know how many years. We decided to drop in for a bit, and the dance floor was so crowded we could barely get in the door!

Re: “Real Estate Money Fills Campaign Coffers of Oakland Politicians

I wonder what happened from this. Now property prices are only growing. People with low salaries are increasingly harder to buy housing. When I had a need to buy my house, I did not have much money. But I was looking for cheap houses. I decided to buy not expensive and not very beautiful, and then gradually I will make it better. But I came to these sites https://www.zillow.com https://jacksonfuller.com
https://www.homes.com and helped me find a good house for a good price. I'm grateful to them.
