    Dear Jennifer,
    Thank you so much for reading my blog. I wanted to address what you said that being a latino is being hard because a lot of people don”t know what the latinx go through. Thank you

                Dear Amy,
                I think your post is very informative because because you made me realize how Oakland is not using the taxes money aprodietly. A line that stood out to me was “It is undeniable from these numbers, that Oakland taxes are giving either too little or too much towards jobs that have the same amount of life risks which shows that Oakland can…Read More

                  I am interested in your post because it’s very informative on how the latinx community has lived here since 1910. Also because you talk about different times in your blog which is giving many stories/perspectives One line in your blog that stood out to me was “ In 1950s-1960s the destruction of West Oakland began the latinos were displaced once again”. This line stood out to me because it saying that latinx are being moved multiple times from there home. I also think that ir’s interesting because of your blog I think that they are the most affected. Thank you for sharing you blog for the world to see and to see how we are being impacted by gentrification.

                      I feel impressed and interested by your post, “Latinx Community”. One sentence that really stood out to me was “…the Latinx community has survived in Oakland for several years despite the countless times they have been displaced in different parts of Oakland.” This stands out because it shows perseverance; no matter how many times the Latinx community has been “displaced” from the city, it shows that they are capable to move on regardless of the hate they receive from the Oakland community. One thing I disagree with was, hypothetically, I guess some people from the Latinx community probably don’t feel safe in the Oakland community because they are being displaced by the Oakland people and community, my question is, what can we do in order to help out not just the Latinx community but everyone so that they all feel equal and respected? I also understand that they aren’t willing to move out because “it’s their home” but have you also ever thought about adding some diversity in all neighborhoods of the Oakland community, not just Fruitvale. I believe this will allow us to understand everyone’s different cultures and history; help us become more open minded about certain groups of people. Thanks for sharing your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next!

                        • Dear Frenanda,
                          i think your post was amazing because it really involved a lot about the latinx community. A line that stood out to me was “all the history and journey the Latinx went through and faced to get to Oakland.” i really liked this quote because it talks about how different it was for latinx people to live in oakland. i agreed with the whole section because it really is hard to be latino and live in oakland. it is really a hard time because of money. thanks for writing, and keep up the good work.
