Don't Be Afraid of Oakland

Aug 21, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: East Bay Express

Lots of students arrive at Cal with preconceived notions about Oakland. Hell, let's be honest: People are flat-out scared of what locals call The Town.

IT's okay FFGs55 we get your point it's just sad that you have amounted to nothing and are just a complete idiot with no future. You will always be nothing in society.

I live in Oakland with my family and I love it. There are ignorant people who solve their problems with violence. This is unfortunate because the people like myself and my children who walk everywhere because we have no vehicle, are at risk.
Other than that, which we luckily haven't seen first hand, Oakland is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever lived in.
Don't be afraid of Oakland, come and explore it.

You stay there in Oakskankland with all the Black badasses and we will stay in our upper middle class homes where we feel safer and very protected by a great Police and gated armed security.

Hayward is upper class? What area? Hayward is old and run down. I think you must be thinking of the Oakland Hills, Piedmont, Jack London Square and other extremely pricy area of OAKLAND. If you think Hayward is upper class you must don't get out much. You made yourself look like a complete idiot for stating that. Hayward, upper class??? YEAH RIGHT!!!

I think the best way to handle this posting is to turn it over to the Oakland Police. It's a treat with the intention to do bodily harm. It's very unfortunate that there are individuals in this world that you can't trust and that would be this person. We will post and forward you comment over to the Police that monitor this site regularly and also post it on Facebook to let everyone that you know what kind of person you are. You will never be welcomed into Oakland. We don't allow your kind into our beautiful city.

Bill just stay in Hayward and you'll be fine. Oakland is a wonderful place with lots of diversity and culture. It's a city that has lots to offer to any one. Bill you must focus only on the negative issues that Oakland and any other city has. Oakland will NEVER miss you Bill if you don't come here. Stay in Hayward here you can feel safe and live your life in peace.
OAKLAND is awesome!!!
I move to oakland six months ago and I am tired of the stigma associated with Oakland. Some people are ignorant and racists and believe all that garbage. BILL STAY WHERE YOU ARE DON'T COME BRING YOUR CRAP IN OUR CITY. WE DON'T NEED IGNORANT AND PREJUDICE PEOPLE LIKE YOU!

Nadia you are totally correct on this. We have losers like UBANGEE fro San Ramon who loves to talk his garbage when he doesn't even live here in Oakland. Everyone in Oakland wishes this guy would just go to hell. Everyone hates him. I was in a discussion downtown at a rally and we were talking about this topic and this guy comes up. We all knew who he is because who can miss that name, UBANGEE. First thing out of everybody's mouth was that they all wish he would show his face and be a real man and come to Oakland. He's such a sissy and sits behind his computer and bashes such a great city but probably would never our city. Typical UNEDUCATED individual that has co clue of what he is talking about. What a COMPLETE LOSER.

UBANGEE you smell of curry so bad your stench is going to empty out San Ramon. You show your face in public and people run. You wake up in the morning and the world asks why another day of this garbage. You show up to work and all your coworkers wonder why they have to work with such disgusting trash. You go to a restaurant and people look around and comment and snicker. You are a waste and using our resources. PLEASE GO AWAY...

For a great laugh, watch all the beautiful Oaklanders enjoying a GREAT performance by Katt Williams at the Oakland Arena on YouTube. Class act for a class city.
