Re: “Your Black Muslim Bakery Is Back In Business

I knew some of the good people at Your Black Muslim Bakery during the '90s. I 'm white and female; I was always treated with respect and great food. The crimes committed, if anyone associated with the group was involved, are unpardonable. But remember how many times untruths have been spoken, written, and wrongly prosecuted by our country's judicial system. I don't think the hate-mongers are 'all' of the people who may have been associated with YBMB. Some of the media comments represent the hate-mongering that goes on and on, in every city, in every country of the world. And our country has for years thrown money overseas usually for reasons of government greed. I'm calling for help for us in the inner city. Hate is escalating in Oakland; it is clearly evident in the Bay Area media. The hate perpetuates more hate and a fiercer hate. I walked with some members of YBMB in the mid-'90s; we walked for peace in the Oakland inner city. We prayed for peace and the defusing of the violence against one another there. I haven't read a comment that acknowledges some of those who worked in the bakeries or in some way associated with the bakery who were and are Americans struggling to improve their lives within the rules and regulations of the judicial system. The Bay Area media lumps everyone ever associated with YBMB into one negative, good-for-nothing ball of scum; ostracizing everyone of them for crimes that others may or may not have committed. Shame on Oakland for violating our judicial system's code: "innocent until proven guilty."
