      • Stereotypes In Oakland

         

        It’s not even about us as humans anymore. It’s mostly about us being portrayed as the villians of this community we call home. This home of ours, Oakland, is having trouble stan

          Hello Doraneli,
          I enjoyed reading your post about the city of Oakland. I can relate to this because I am from the Bay Area as well. I’m pretty familiar with the cities San Francisco and San Jose. I feel like all attention is always on Oakland, saying it’s really dangerous or how homes always gets break into. But sometimes people ignore the fact that San Francisco has a huge population of homelessness and San Jose it is isn’t all that safe from what I have seen and heard. It’s great to see you’re defending your home city and informing others that Oakland isn’t that dangerous.

        • Hi Doraneli,

          This article was so informative and well written! I enjoyed reading it, because it shows a different perspective that many people don’t see. The part where some citizens were interviewed was a great addition. When one person explained that many people sell drugs in order to survive, it hurt me and I’m sure other readers felt the same effect. The stark reality of what many go through in order to get by is truly upsetting. I agree that many people stereotype certain cities even when improvement is visible. This post is a perfect example of why people should be more open minded and do research before making assumptions.

        I wrote this poem about a recent lover I had who has broken my heart completely. I wrote how they kept us away from each other and how no matter how many times we showed our love , our family didn’t except.

        • Dear Doraneli,

          I thought your poem was great and I love the way you connected Romeo and Juliet to your own personal life. I really like how you included the beginning of Romeo and Juliet in your poem to show your story. I think the part that stood out to me the most is, ¨ Can you hear us? Do you feel it? Have you seen us? Have you lived it?” I think that this part is really good in your poem and really making the reader question about what the poemś image is. The outline of the poem is great and overall it was amazing. Thank you for sharing your poem!
