We prefer to call it JOKELAND, especially since Jokelanders elected Dellums as mayor!

A HELL-HOLE for poor Blacks & Mexicans. Always has been and it seems it always will be.

Nothing has changed much since the 1960's

Hey, they're not only poor - they're ignorant and violent, and proud of being both! Why do you think i call it JOKELAND?

I prefer to call it "home". The Lake Merritt area and Oakland Hills are gorgeous. The Chabot Science Center is top notch. The Paramont theater is a top notch show place. Some parts of are pretty bad, to be honest, but there are part of town that are beautiful and peaceful.

Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater Don't malign the whole city because some parts of it are less desirable to live in than other.

I call Oakland "Home".

Paramount Theater is beautiful - but can only get corny gospel shows. Now Jokeland dumps millions into renovating old Fox Theater - what are they (almost) thinking?

OK, Carl, quit bull$hitting yourself. Chabot Space Center is not really Oakland, that's a regional park where practically nobody lives. College Avenue is not Oakland either, that's some extension of Berkeley, which is also ghetto. Those are tiny little exceptions to a city that is filled with poverty and criminals.

It's never going to get better here. Dream of gentrification all day, but where are all these people going to go? Don't forget, most people live to about 80 years old, so many if not most are going to outlive you and all the social programs and community college courses are not going to help them become normal, contributing members of society.

Just wait until you get jumped, mugged, or shot at. Yeah, you'll be running back to the burb's in no time.
