Oakland is full of lots of thugs who still blame their bad lives/poor upbringings on white people instead of placing blame on themselves and their families. See, this is what happens when you choose to deal crack and not finish high school and want to just grow up to be in a gang.

Yup...it also is what happens when you have that cultural rot called "gangsta rap" glorifying punks and gangs and condoning every uncivil and criminal act up to and including murder! Forty years of affirmative action and billions of dollars in welfare and what do we have to show for it? It's still Booga-Booga land in Oakland! Ya know what I am sayin' homie?

Nah that has nothing to do with it...although since the Raiders have played so incompetently in recent years that may have something to do with Oakland's incompetent city government especially that Mayor dude who apparently still thinks he is the darling of the lefties back in Washington DC. Oakland seems to be the least of his worries nowadays! Oh well...

DRUGs. MONEY. POWER. JEALOUSY and no low lives...put that all together and what u get? truly I have been wanting to get that mic from those news casters and tell the real.....most men/women in Oakland are under the influence of some illegal substance and have no idea what they are doing when they are. They are out there saling drugs and for the most popping spot on the corner they will kill for it. so....thats what u get when the MAYOR isnt doing his job of getting those LOW LIFES off the streets. THey have no value on there own lives so hey what makes you think they will have any on another.....I have heard enough about this city...it needs to be demolished. I HATE OAKLAND!

It's a lot of things that make Oakland the way it is, the lack of respect for life you see it on TV,
you hear it by way of music. The church is'nt doing nothing. We must have a re-education for the whole world, not just Oakland. Nothing will ever change unless we all change, I mean parents grandparents and the children.

everyone is missing the point!you are looking at symptoms!not causes!when we here of the latest shootings we are looking at the end result of something that has gone terribly wrong!and that something went wrong many years ago!It went wrong when the single mother tried to raise her children by herself in an envirement that eats children for breackfast!By a government program that demands the absence of the father to qualify! so now mariage is a taboo except for gays!anyone who ate of that poison is now paying for that social engineering.

Well if there is a father in the picture who might actually have to work (perish the thought!) and support his family why would welfare (or so much of it!) be required? Of course you do have to have some provisions to give people welfare...like establishing the fact that it is really needed!

What has REALLY terribly gone wrong is that we have a complete lack of responsibility in that girls (as young as 12 and 13!) and women are grinding out bastard after bastard without even thinking about the responsibility of who is going to raise them and who is going to support the raising of them. Meanwhile "my baby's daddy" has usually "flown the coop" in search of another "hoe" or "bitch" to bang until he knocks her up and does another disappearing act.

Yeah I know we should blame all the robberies, rapes and murders on someone else other than those committing those barbaric crimes too. Responsibility? Nah forget that outdated concempt! Besides that cultural rot called "gangsta rap" glorifies and condones all that anyway. Great message for impressionable youth eh?

I just moved to Oakland, I knew it was not a very Hood place to want to live but I felt like if I just minded my own business & stick to my self I'd be fine. Well last night proved Mr wrong, I had just gotten off the bus around 630pm, walking home about 5 minutes from my house I was robbed at gun point by 2 youngsters. I couldn't believe my eyes. Snatched my purse and ripped my necklace off my neck. I feel so violated and traumatized. I can't understand how people could be so fuckin greedy. If you want money go to work like I do every fuckin day and earn it you pieces of shit!!

Anybody know the exact number of persons shot in Oakland in 2012? The media always reports how many murders, but never how many people were actually shot and survived. I tried getting that info from the mayor's office, but they did not reply of course.

Kinda sad, when you considered the many white soldiers, including Abraham Lincoln....that sacrificed their lives, seemingly for a group of people, they may not have deserved their freedoms.....

Long Beach is bad but go across the freeway and check out, Compton. Little Oakland, it's really bad. Either way, glad I'm white or I'd go for suicide.
