Corrections for the Week of October 7 

James Fisher's race; host of Life is Living Fest's skate zone

Our October 7 feature, "Racial Profiling Via," erroneously stated that Oakland resident James Fisher, a teen who faces profiling in his Upper Dimond neighborhood, is mixed-race Black. James, who was adopted, is not mixed-race. And our October 7 Culture Spy, "Health, Poetry, and Life" listed the incorrect host for the Life Is Living festival's skate zone. It was Keith Williams, not Karl Watson.
