Re: “Berkeley Landlord Tax Easily Passes

Such an increase as passed will not make Berkeley more attractive to builders, who realize what the Berkeley voters/City Counsel give today they can take away next election. If you had the money to construct residential housing, would you do it in Berkeley or some other city without rent control, especially when you know when one of your tenants wants to move, they will not give you formal notice and allow you to increase the rent to the market value for a new tenant, but rather will sub-lease through underground sources [which reduces the amount of housing on the open market].

Re: “Why Black Students Are Avoiding UC Berkeley

The article states that some Black students feel unwelcome because only 4% of the University campus is Black. If that figure is doubled to 8%, which corresponds to the State wide Black population in California, are Black students really going to feel that more comfortable? In a small section class of 20 students, there is a high probability that whether there is a 4% or 8% portion of the entire student population, a Black student will still be the only Black in many of his/her classes. How unwelcome so male WASP's feel if they are only 5-10% of the entire student body, especially if they came from the predominately White suburban school system?
