Re: “Setting the Record Straight About Oakland

This article is on point. I've owned a small business in Uptown Oakland for 7 years and have lived here for over 16 years. When I first arrived from Los Angeles, I was nervous about Oakland's reputation and my safety based on media observations.
I was pleasantly surprised to see and experience first hand how beautiful Oakland is and how culturally diverse the landscape is. I have never been robbed or burglarized.
Less than 6 months ago, I started a Tumblr blog called Faces of Oakland as an homage to Oaktown and in an attempt to show people from the outside looking in Oakland's culturally diverse faces. So far, so good.
I OVERstand Elmano Gonsalves' campaign to demand fair reporting about a city that has had its fair share of slanted media reports. I love it here. It is no Utopia, but what city is?
