    • Dear Marcos, I think that your post was very interesting because I didn’t know that the colors that you wear can put your life on the line. A line that stood out to me was “But it’s never to late for the city to adapt” because I totally agree that people can change for the better and that we should change because people should be able to wear what they want without having to worry about something as important as their life. I agree with your point about the streets becoming more dangerous because parents in Oakland are even more afraid to let their children go out at night lately. Thank you for taking your time to write this article, keep it up.

    • Dear Baby Long Head, I think you did a good job. But You could explain more about the colors and be more detailed. But is whass good Keep it up boyfriend.

When you said “Oakland CA is a city about excitement where nobody is antisocial and the community is diverse, in Oakland people make sideshows for fun and anybody is invited but one is there at their own risk”, I could tell that you wanted others to understand and see what Oakland was really like. Thank you Marcos!

    Dear Yasmin,

    Thank you for your post. I really appreciated how you put “Pretty” in quotes cause it reminds us how subjective that word is. Who decides what pretty and ugly is? Why does our society have feelings about beauty? Why is beauty valued? I really appreciated your opinion and thank you for writing. Looking forward to reading your future posts.

  • Thank you Katie for your post. I really agree with you and your connection to our current administration in Washington. Keep writing your opinions!

  • Dear Mica,

    Thank you for your very energized post. I could feel your emotions as I read and your opinions about our current state. I really agreed with you around the importance of education and how our current government is really using coercion to disempower large ground of people in this country. One thing however that took away from your…Read More
