    • 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.

    • Dear Marcos, I am a student from San Jose State University and reading your post and can tell how you wanted to explain how much Oakland has changed and how it could be even with its bitter moments. 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!
