Re: “Oakland to Take Down Lake Merritt Signs Prohibiting Musical Instruments, Activists Plan Protests

White people in America used race-color as law to enslave, imprison, murder, injure and harass communities that are any shade darker than them for over 500 years - AS LAW - Since the day they showed up. In 2015 when it isn't convenient for you to hear, you say to stop talking about it. Get over it. It's not up to you to dictate to others regarding injuries caused - not imaginary injuries AS LAW and still practiced today. You will not continue to control the narrative of oppression and power with wishes of denial. You go ahead and forget but we won't.

Re: “OPD Responds to Noise Complaints by White Man Against Black Drummers at Lake Merritt, Sparks Concerns About Racial Profiling

Hey Sean, if Oakland is too difficult for you feel free to leave. You filed charges and your name is on that paperwork, you have a social media presence with your pucture. Why would you be hard to find ? Don't put your hands on anyone and act like a civil person and you will be fine. Your "lifestyle" has affected your community. Those drummers are the community and have been here longer than you. The lake is the center of our vibrant city. It's not up to just you how it's regulated. You also realize it was a historic eclipse ? 830pm is hardly late. Get over yourself or go elsewhere. You get no sympathy

Re: “Updated: Mayor Schaaf Withdraws Nomination of Eviction Specialist Associate to Oakland Rent Control Board

and so it goes. Pretty sure she will be one term only. She is proving herself to NOT be for the people.
I hope she remembers she is in a place with roots. We won't go quietly.

Re: “BART Riders Racially Profile via Smartphone App

Hi David Cutter, I live in a majority black neighborhood and I don't agree with you. Actual statistics don't bear out your racist thoughts but you keep thinking what you want and keep it real. Please know that you cannot put yourself in the shoes of anyone else and your "views" don't automatically equal the truth

Re: “Starving Students Movers Company Caught on Video Dumping Furniture in West Oakland

What a lack of respect to the community. This is how they view West Oakland so it's okay when in fact they are a bog part of the problem. Shameful !

Re: “Oakland's Trash Program Promotes Waste

The City Council doesn't bother reading the items it approves, isn't this a concern ?
