• Dear Gildardo,

    I am impressed with your article “Professional Soccer In Oakland”. One sentence you wrote that stood out for me was, “Oakland should have a professional soccer team because it would inspire Oakland kids.” I think this is interesting because by the time the Raiders and Warriors leave Oakland in 2019, the city should make a newer,…[Read more]

  •   “Violence in the Bay Area” by Takeo Owens


    There is a lot of violence in the Bay Area. The question is, what will stop the violence in Oakland? How will the government stop it? Should violence stop? Why or

    • Dear Takeo,
      I agree with you that the violence in the bay area doesn’t only affect the person committing the crime but it also affects the person being hurt by the crime. One of the examples you wrote about that stood out to me was about the situation with Oscar Grant at the Bart station. This example really interested me and made me agree with you more because it really showed how the violence has lead to deaths and how people’s lives can change completely around because of all this violence happening in the Bay Area. Your writing on violence stood out to me because although you focused on more about the violence in Oakland it is important to know that violence is not only happening in the Bay area it is happening all around the world and it is important that everyone does something to help the amount of violence happening to decrease. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you really get into the topics you write about and you pick really interesting and real topics.

      • Thank You Takeo, I appreciate you for taking the time to read my blog and commenting on my post. You seemed interested in the violence topic, why is that? I hope to hear back from you.

  • Dear Cheryl,

    This article is great! You added some great, strong, and powerful words! Good job! This post makes me think that everyone are not good or bad people, but I am. And I agree, you will never know what a truly good person looks like. So keep up the good work! I love this article.

    • Hi, Takeo
      Nice picture and all those symbols that you choose that represents you.
      I would try to add more about your culture, even though you came here in the United States as a baby but what about your people where you was born, their traditions and the place where your parents where born.
      would you like to go to see the country where you was born?
      Tells us more about your gender, are you happy in being a man?
      How do you feel after you graduate from a school?
      How do you take care of that stereotype that African American people don’t do well in school?.

    • Hello Takeo,
      I would like to know how the cars represent and have meaning to you.
      Are you happy to be living in the United States?
      Have you been back to visit where you were born?
      Do you still participate in your cultures beliefs or the United States?
      Do you still eat your cultures food or fast foods?
