Re: “Racial Profiling Via Nextdoor.com

It's not just Oakland, I've lived in North Oakland and South Berkeley 60+ years ... we also have "next-door" in Berkeley i'm a member ..and we have the identical situation here. At least 20% of the communications on next-door consist of alerts for "suspicious" persons of color. I personally know one instance where a call was made to the Berkeley Police department by one of our newer white neighbor ..on a black senior citizen who supposedly "had something going on in his house." The police came to the man's house, had him down on the ground the gun to his head, ransacked his house, took him to jail and kept him there two days before releasing him ..this happened on Harmon Street in Berkeley. Since our neighborhood has become more gentrified the Berkeley Police are more aggressive and as quick to profile Black residence as the Oakland Police. We own three houses in Berkeley and I've been stopped twice in the last year and asked "am I on probation or parole" for nothing more then being a black man walking In my neighborhood ,it's crazy
