Re: “The New Guy: Introducing 'Express' Editor Nick Miller

I've always thought that "Free Will Astrology" was satire. A bit verbose and long running, but satire. It isn't?

Re: “Exorcising 'El Maligno': How Bay Area Protesters Co-Opted Trump's Speech

"(Later, eggs found different targets, in the form of cops.)"

"In another confrontation, a masked protester snatched an American flag from a handful of young Trump supporters and lit it on fire. This move spurred debate among activists about the wisdom of certain tactics."

Shame on the EBX for the puff piece cowardice exemplified above.

This is black block narcissism, pure and simple. It is nasty, violent, and selfish It harms only the left. Like smashing and looting small businesses in Oakland it is found gold in the street for the right.

Re: “Flag burning, hotel-lobby rappelling, 'Latinos for the wall'—welcome to Donald Trump's Bay Area appearance

"My take on incendiary U.S. flags as a form of civil disobedience isn't important."

How decorous of you to withhold judgement. Busy checking your privilege no doubt.

Re: “Exploiting Inmates

This kind of theft is the sort of conduct, theft and overt abuse of the weak, that prisoners are locked up for.

Re: “BART Police Quietly Installed License Plate Surveillance Cameras at Oakland Station

"...for parking fee collection"

Much like the red light camera racket, this is an almost pure parking ticket play. The "Homeland Security" and "wanted criminal" riffs are the cover. If the system were for serious threats only, it would be so restricted. Thus is privacy sacrificed for under-funded pensions.

Re: “W. Kamau Bell Grilled Mayor Schaaf Live Last Night

I had never heard of him prior to the supposed "racism" he experienced at a restaurant in Berkeley . He used the restaurant, which was probably more known than he, to get publicity."

Indeed. And he got two innocent waitresses fired over a substantially innocent mistake in spite of their immediate apologies. He nearly put the owner of the Elmwood Cafe out of business by calling down a nationwide mob of his twitter followers on his head with a trumped up accusation of racism. His "comedy" is about almost nothing but race and is embarrassing and unfunny.

Re: “Cal Student Calls for More Black Voices in Film Studies

"Professors, she said, should also be prepared to intervene when heated debates transform classes into racially charged environments:"

And do what?
