Re: “The Woman Behind Oakland's Mobile Food Scene

First... taco trucks and "roach coaches" owned by Latinos and Asians have been part of the east and west Oakland landscape DECADES before "2001" ( where I first tasted Sriracha back in the 80's as an accompaniment to the egg rolls and wings off the Asian owned roach coaches before it was "discovered" )
and Blacks to a lesser extend have also tried sell also- which brings up a sore point with me. I have no problem with ANYONE hustlin plates. Although I actually work in public health, I believe no one wants to kill their customers so MOST will take the needed precautions. A ServSafe certification goes over most food safety issues and is only $15 (if I recall- I have from last year). My sore point is the unequal enforcement. Most notably are the hot dog vendors who sale RIGHT under BART police noses on the Coliseum walkway and no one says a word as they sale in the open. The blacks who are selling bottled water out of a cooler have to go further down nearer to the Coliseum side of the foot bridge in order not to be hassled. I wonder if I were to set up a cart on the same bridge and sell BBQ plates, would I be hassled? I recall a few years ago, a black guy would sell BBQ on 98th and E.14th and felt the need to display on his truck window, blown up and exaggerated copies of his permits while down the street other brown folks sold everything from tamales, churros and pillows without the need. Again I welcome all the hustle and have even supported many of these carts with my $$. My only gripe, either enforce it equally across the board or leave everyone alone. These vendors offer a vital... yes vital service to the late night hutlas, shift workers, clubbers and anyone craving the munchies on the cheap in areas without many late night epicurean offerings. Let's just allow everyone to sell if this is the route we are going to go

Re: “Vast New Bay Area Bike-Share Program Is Everywhere ... Except Deep East Oakland

OK let's get out idealistic heads out of the utopian clouds. I grew up in East Oakland... Ain't nobody paying $3.00 a trip for a bike ride or $10 for a day pass... I'm a bike rider an I can afford it and have all the technology needed to take advantage of this program and I wouldn't. Maybe NEW people to the Deep East... NOT the folks I know and know of. This may elicit a gasp from some of you. Some of you may spout some hotepness salt my way... but YOU KNOW I'm not lyin.

Re: “AC Transit to Cancel Supplemental OUSD School Bus Routes

One thing conveniently left out of this article is that I believe there is still REGULAR service serving these schools. SUPPLEMENTAL service merely means that an extra run or two was added just for the students... a GOOD thing. HOWEVER, students would STILL be able to take the bus the school... just as I and many other OUSD students have done for decades.

Re: “Uber Not Coming To Oakland After All?

How is the gig economy rubbish ? As a second job (not Uber or Lyft ride sharing), the "gig economy" EASILY, without much of a sweat puts an extra $400-$500 a week in my pocket. I know what I got into and am ABSOLUTELY satisfied with the arrangement.

Re: “The Veg Hub in Oakland Cooks Fake Meat for the People

@ Andrew really ? because one of the former Pastors of the Grand Avenue Seventh-Adventist Church- who if I recall (I could be wrong) was instrumental in bringing such a restaurant to Oakland ( I recall talk about it a few years ago)- risked his ENTIRE career with a sermon about loving EVERYONE- including those in the gay community. Point-- Generalization ? Yes there are some- maybe many who are not as "progressive" in their religiosity. Some if not many ARE. You can have your beliefs based on your faith AND still love your brother and not JUDGE them on their lifestyle choice. It's not THAT difficult. My belief in scientific theories does NOT negate MY faith. Sure... some may not believe what I believe but it has NO bearing on MY relationship with God. I'm not a vegetarian- but I look forward to trying something outside of my comfort zone if it's as good as the reviewer says it is. :)

Re: “Town Business: Developer Wants to Stick MacArthur BART Tower's Affordable Units Entirely in Bottom Quarter of Building

"...Developer Wants to Stick MacArthur BART Tower's Affordable Units Entirely in Bottom Quarter of Building..."

And ??? so ??? I'm glad that they're below market rate included- regardless of where they are.

I see NO problem with allowing those who are paying market rate to have the choice of the lot.

While nice, why MUST a developer contribute all of those "community benefit" projects. Heck... isn't the Mosswood center a city owned property. It's stipulations like this that has made it so difficult for things to get off the ground here in The 'Town

Re: “My Afternoon With E-40: A Day in the Life of the Bay Area's Most Prolific and Respected Rapper

@Charlie Pine... I think the video you are referring to was filmed on a closed lot at the old 7th Street Train station.
