    Hi Chelsea, thank you for your comment. I agree that there are some good and bad things about Oakland but it depends on where you live mostly. I personally like the weather but the environment in some areas are not so great, so it depends. Thanks again for your comment!

    Thank you very much for commenting, I’m very sorry that you had to go through that. I have also seen bad relations with the police and I agree that there should be more security. I’m new to this site so I will try to post more. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • Rafael,

      I think your topic is a very important one. Insecurity and racial discrimination within the police force has been a heavy topic these last few years, and we need more people with your ability to communicate the struggles of the voiceless. Your statistics bring a much clearer view to how big of a problem this actually is. Although I do not live far from Oakland, I did not know that security and discrimination were such big issues there still.

      I hope to read more of your work!
