Re: “The Return of the Crematorium

Did I send for you? Hey. Gary Patton. Thanks for reading both articles and observing the language that was used in which, I don't know if a article and an op-ed that's released on same day could have used your language. It's an universal language, when you live this Injustice you don't have to learn or read about it to write about it. It's speaking truth to power. #EJ4ALL

Re: “Monday’s Briefing: Oakland Gets 255 Legal Pot Permit Applications; Another State Legislator Accused of Sexual Harassment

Back in the day, many decades ago, when it was cool to be a stoner (especially as opposed to an alky), no one could even have hallucinated that pot would become a mainstream economic sector.

Personally I still think it's an hallucination, but I haven't had a toke yet today.

Re: “The Return of the Crematorium

Hey EM, if you are going to co opt my comments about the General Plan and Zoning being the problem in an article you wrote to the Tribune, next time at least give me some credit in a footnote. It is what writers with integrity and not a political agenda do. Also, if you want to play the race card as your main offensive weapon, at least be historically correct. In the case of West Oakland, in the early 20th century, most of the residential populations around industry were Italian, Portuguese and Irish. Blacks did not make the great migration to Oakland from the south until the 1940's and 50's. Similarly, in East Oakland, many industrial land uses predated the construction of residential neighborhoods that came later and ultimately served that same migratory population. Just because Black people are there now does not always mean that these uses were placed there because Blacks lived nearby. Not that there are never cases where that is a factor. But just as historically correct is that these uses chose locations because of economic factors like proximity to the Port as well as convenient rail and truck transportation.

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

Yeah. I put this all on the venues.
No matter the genre, all parties can fail. The venues should take 2-3 chances on every party. New parties should start monthly on a weeknight, and if they are successful, either be offered a weekend monthly or take their party elsewhere.

Some parties may need more than 2-3 tries to get off the ground. Word of mouth still works. And venues should know which parties will need more than 2-3 tries to marinate into something that will last.

If you're a Latinx DJ or promoter, please, please keep trying. Last year, last month, last week might not have been the time for your party to jump off. But this month, or next, it could be CRACKIN'.

Re: “Overland Country Bar and World Ground Cafe Shut Their Doors

Oh, no!!!!!!! Starved for years without a country bar and music spot and now after a couple of years it's gone. Sad loss for us country music fans and Oakland. I'll be dead before another one comes to town.

Re: “Best Landlord History Lesson: Andrew Mousalimas

Gabrielle:

Great appreciation of Andy. When I moved to the Piedmont Avenue Oakland in 1975 Andy and Mary were running the 1st Tuesday Club at the Kings X. It was organized by Nick Petris (Oakland Senator from 1966 1996 pre term limits) district staff. I got invited by Bruce Black, a long time Democratic activist and log time member of the Oakland Planning Commission in the early 1980s. In the days before e-mail it was a time for democratic electeds (and a few activists) to get together and return phone calls. By that time I started going, Mary had stopped running the kitchen at the Kings X every day, but she served lunch for the 1st Tuesday Club. Andy and Mary were great and the 1st Tuesday Club gave people a chance to talk fact to face at least once a month.

Re: “Study: Higher Minimum Wage and Other Progressive Policies Have Not Hurt Economic Growth in California

And of all things coming from one of the most liberal institutions in the country. Give it a rest as to what comes out of the UC System and the progressive agenda.

Re: “Hasta Muerte Serves Coffee with a Side of Resistance

I hope there are no neighborhood watch meetings. They dont build or celebrate community. In areas with changing demographics, they feel as divisive as crime itself to long time locals.

Re: “Justice League Is a Cheap-Looking Spectacle

This isn't a review... This is a hit piece. And that's coming from someone who feels Captain America: The Winter Soldier is pound for pound the best cinematic comic movie to date. Seriously... THIS reviewer was looking to hate this film. Wow...

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

To me, Oakland has always been about Safety. Especially with the Ladies!

If you notice, the only Latino parties that get packed are the venues [shows and concerts]. It's crowded, well lit, parking available and plenty of security. I believe Ladies feel safe there!

The last time I went to Oakland's bars, the ratio of guys to ladies was about 3 to 1. And ... the front doors of a bar I was at .... had to be closed temporarily, due to a shooting across the street.

Oakland still has that reputation!
