    Dear Lupe,
    the part that i liked was when you said this “The last name I received has been a huge impact in my life because it has made me who I am today. ” this really stand out to me because it was the most impactful also that really means our last name has a meaning and not just a last name. this matters because our last name has a lot more…Read More

    Violence in Oakland

     

    Everyone is interested in violence, that is why action movies exist. In Oakland’s case, however, it is a lot more serious and people need to take more responsibility for what they are do

      I am devastated about your post “VIOLENCE IN OAKLAND ,” because… everyone is interested in violence,also your post shows the world could not be trusted sometimes because of the violence that’s happening these days a sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Violence affects Oakland in many way such as gangs, money, guns, family problems and many more ways that describe Oakland” I think this is tremendously great because…you really relate to a lot of people who have these problems like Another sentence that I loved was: “The police is the reason why Oakland has the word violence written in front of it because police brutally is also one of the most common out of violence and gangs .” This stood out for me because…police are the blame for the violence that’s going on most of the time.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because…you are one of those people that like to inform people about what’s going on these days.Violence in oakland is a effective way to mess up families and you saying this might change a child’s point of view to Oakland.

    • Dear Fernando,

      I was very delighted to read your post “Violence In Oakland” because it explains the violence that gangs brings to Oakland. I agree with you when you said that police aren’t doing anything to solve your case because they are too focused solving other cases. One sentence that stands out to me is “People from outside of Oakland look at Oakland As A Place full of violence because they think the Oakland is there a place full of violence and homicides also such as gangs drugs homicides murders also rape.” This stood out to me because people who aren’t from Oakland always think that Oakland is a bad place without actually knowing Oakland. The news that is reported mostly focused on the violence that People of Color commit and the gang problems but they don’t show when a White person commits a crime. This problem makes people outside of Oakland scared to come here because of the dominant narratives that are said about Oakland. Thank you for writing. I look forward to see what you write next, because you have interesting and important topics to bring to the community to educate people.

    • Dear Fernando,
      I am impressed by your blog, “ Violence in Oakland” because it was interesting that you decided to talk about the violence in your community instead of other places that also deal with violence. One sentence that I don’t agree with on is when yous said , “ Everyone is interested in violence, that is why action movies exist”. I disagree with you because action movies are meant to look cool, intense etc. but in reality violence isn’t like that and I don’t think people are interested in violence. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because even if I disagree with your opinion it still gets interesting to read.
      Sincerely,
      Grady

  • Hi Deepu,
    the sentence that really stood out me is “I believe that the main cause of high grades is how much work someone is willing to put in to earn good grades ” this show how people can feel comfortable at who they are and it does not matter who stupid your are.

    Hi tesh,
    One sentence that really sand out me is that “When a person walks into an art museum, what should they expect to see? A painting? A sculpture? A book? A poem? A video game? Most people do not expect to see a video game in a museum.” that really stood out to me because this sentence made the reader think what what they are reading
