Re: “Complex Oakland to Focus on Coffee and Creole Food Instead of Clubbing

This sentence doesn't make any sense:

"Oscar Edwards saw all of the shiny new high-rise apartment buildings planned for Downtown Oakland and figured the writing was on the wall: There probably wasnt much of a future in running a nightclub in that neighborhood."

Why would you think a nightclub doesn't have a future when a ton of new people are about to move in nearby? If anything it probably means a lot more business.

Re: “Mayor Schaaf's Protest Plan Misses the Mark

Why is there more discussion over how to punish window breakers and stop protests than how to stop police from murdering people, and how to end mass incarceration here in Oakland?

Everyone even having this stupid debate is "off the mark". We should be focused on moving toward ending racism instead of how to shut up the people who are pointing it out.
