Re: “Wednesday’s Briefing: Oakland May Expand Rent Control; Newsom Announces Youth Incarceration Reform

Here ya go, Ernest. I think this applies to your behavior generally here on these comments:…

Re: “The Forces Driving Gentrification in Oakland

TS, slow your roll and read.

The article says (as quoted by you): "White flight, in which white residents fled urban centers for suburbs, was another phenomenon that set the stage for the urban gentrification we see today."

Then you write: "How is that gentrification?"

Um. The article explicitly said it set the stage for gentrification. It did not, in fact, say that white flight was such.

Re: “Eviction Protections Could Be Extended to Thousands More Oakland Homes Through Proposed Ballot Measure

David L, your comment makes no sense.

If you bought your duplex 25 years ago, the mortgage should be relatively low, and you should be nearly done. Likewise, the taxes are calculated based on your 1993 purchase price, which in Oakland would be very unlikely to cap $500,000.

At 3 percent, the tax burden on the rented half of your duplex would be no more than $625 monthly.

In addition, you can always go to the Rent Board and petition for an adjustment if you are really truly losing money renting out half of that duplex.

I also read a lot about wondering why you should subsidize your tenants' lifestyle ... in Oakland. And yet you admit that you chose to live in "more expensive" Alameda. Why should they subsidize your choice to do that?

Re: “Civil Rights Attorney Accuses Alameda Sheriff of Retaliation After Female Client Is Arrested and Jailed for Six Days Following Press Conference

You'r right, Ernest. The police are much more likely to harass wealthy white men. The police are much less likely to harass people whom the public tends to discount or discredit.

Re: “Oakland Landlord Evicts Tenant, Then Hangs Pro-Trump Billboard on Building

Jeff, you can't be seriously claiming equivalency between Hillary Clinton and a man whose VP wanted to make women hold funerals for their miscarriages and use tax funds to finance gay conversion "therapy". A man whose Cabinet picks include a man too racist for the federal courts; an avowed white supremacist, and a man who wants to send people to Guantanamo Bay for tweeting.

Or are all of those horrors OK with you because they affect people who you don't consider to be real people anyway?
