Re: “Oakland City Council Should Censure Desley Brooks

Oakland, the real Oakland, needs her fire, but at the cost of $$$$ to the city, there are other firebrands who would not exact such a blow to the city's coffers - and dignity! And I like her too! BTW, any money Elaine Brown gets should be directly fed back into the community, like sponsoring (tutors, counselors, mentors, cultural exchanges) a few kids from elementary through high school would be a good start.
These white folks, who not so long ago despised Oakland, who now find themselves injected into an Oakland of their own minds-eye, will only criticize, smirk and post their subtle and coded messages of derision, like, "white guilt, not me!"
As Oakland hastily gentrifies, these two black women allowed their disagreements to overshadow the work that needs to be done to insure Oakland does not fall a victim to the blandness that not-white-guilt covets. When personal emotions overwhelm intelligent dialogue - especially from two key persons in positions to lead and shape policy; then the forces that seek promote and seek our nullification from this fine city, is able to squeeze another toe in the door.

Promotion at the UC Berkeley Police department is based on how well you bungle your job, it appears.

Re: “Trump Threatens UC Berkeley's Federal Funding After Milo Yiannopoulos Protest

Matthew Lee: It is obvious to all with an open mind that Barbara Lee can speak for herself! Just because a minority of people used violence and destroyed property does not mean that the protest was not legimate. By any such analysis, your Trump could claim the support of all Americans - since only a minority voted for him; but the truth is, most people abhor him as well as people like you who close your eyes as he makes a fool himself, the idiots who voted for and support him, and most of all our country.

Well, he does believe that torture works! The only worse thing he could do for Oakland is to erect billboards of his face posted all over the city - that stupid-looking face would be enough to keep illegals and legals alike from coming here.
Bill Wylie - just follow the rules of etiquette and stop shouting your ignorant and grammatically incorrect drivel!

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

Other Gorelicks have been effective legal counsel for poor people in Oakland for years; this new-Jack Gorelick has his fangs out now that Trump has normalized hate and ignorance. This particular weakling is hiding his predation under Trump's trumphet call to all the idiots: "Here Ye, Here Ye, you don't have to hide your hate any longer!" Oaklanders, he hopes, will bow down to such treatment of its fragile citizens, but I suspect this idiot will rue the day he stuck his neck out to celebrate hateful derision!
