  • Dear Melissa, I think that your post was interesting because of the relevance it has towards Oakland to this day. A line that stood out to me was, “Oakland should benefit ALL of Oakland and it’s community members whether they’re low, middle or high income people/households the city of Oakland shouldn’t exclude people because we are all apart of th…Read More

    • Xavier, this article is thoroughly impressive. You used extensive objectivity and factual evidence tied in with your subjective viewpoint of the problem at hand. As a huge NFL fan, I found this article very relatable and enlightening into the future of team moves and relocation. You had extensive sources to back up your thesis, and your inclusion of the opposition’s standpoint added more credibility as it showed a conflicting viewpoint and its faults. Your trail of logic was very clear and coherent and this continued to add strength and credibility to your point, which you wrapped up beautifully and succinctly.
