Re: “Report: Berkeley Police Six-Times More Likely to Use Force Against Black People

Has anyone studied how much more likely black people are to use force against the police ? I see bias here. Lovelle Mixon left a nasty legacy and he sure as hell was not the only one.

Re: “Young Professionals Only? Housemates Accuse Landlord of Rejecting Subtenant Applications in Hopes of Vacating Rent-Controlled Unit.

If housing is a human "right", even people with more money have a right to said housing. It's still a money talks, BS walks world. And always will be, in spite of delusional communist wet dreams.

Re: “As People of Color Disappear from Oakland, So Do My Memories

This "victim" culture and mentality is a ticket to nowhere.... Whine and cry your life away, while others improve their lives and community all around and in spite of you. Oakland "natives" need to protect themselves. They have no more right to housing in Oakland than the other 7 billion people on the planet

Re: “Why Is There a Housing Crisis?

Housing in the expensive area of your choice is NEVER a right. To think so is true greed. Which is greedier.... More housing for less money or more money for less housing ? The truth is the greed is the same.

Re: “Why Is There a Housing Crisis?

Subsidized apartments are just unfair set asides for a lucky few. They fix nothing but reward a segregated few with a housing windfall. Nothing could be more unfair. Sure they have strong rent controls in Copenhagen, but the waiting list to get an apartment is 15 years !!! At least the free market is fair, anyone can make the money to get what they want or need, without a 15 year wait.
