Re: “Hidden Monuments to Racism

Unsurprisingly, many white Berkeleyites don't enjoy the open acknowledgement that the most recent zoning and building restriction are meant to keep the foothill neighborhoods white. And have succeeded in doing so adroitly.

These same people will view themselves as enlightened when the zoning and building restrictions are reduced now that primarily white genteifiers are the only ones who can afford new rentals or condos in the bay.

Same as it ever was.

Re: “Ambushed: Contra Costa County Law Enforcement Sets Up Surprise Stings To Help Federal Immigration Agents Arrest and Deport Immigrants

I wonder if all these people railing against "illegals" and "criminals" in Contra Costa would like their drunk uncle JimBob shipped backed to Germany for reaching HIS fourth DUI. Let's just revoke birthright citizenship altogether and if you mess up, we send you "back" to whatever is closest to being your most recent homeland. Sounds fair, right?

The coordination of ICE and Contra Costa County Sheriff's office and probation offices are about nothing but moving bodies for profit. The county is raking in millions and filling jail cells by destroying families and stealing chances from people.

Those of you who choose not to see that are just the willing dupes aiding and abetting.

Re: “Shane's Campaign to Free Leonard Peltier

^ Ah the good ole FBI. Always popping up where they are unwanted *and* unnecessary. Ron Williams and Jack Coler are dead because they were given bad tactical advice from command, AND because the FBI was asserting rights that it did not in fact have to be on the Rez. This entire fiasco begins and ends with government incompetence and overreach, and no amount of upholding this conviction by that same legal system is going to make Peltier guilty, or make the government and FBI any less culpable.
