I heard about the rioting in Oakland and it got me riled and thinking on some things and what passes these days as political upheaval. I also happened upon pictures, great ones, I might add of a peaceful vigil and will be sprinkling them throughtout the post. Courtesy of G-Busfare!
Where was your outrage when rents in Oakland went through the roof? Where was it when so-called Urban Renewal projects crept into minority and working class neighborhoods? When check cashing places, liquor stores and bail bonds outnumbered banks and grocery stores?
So you read about Oscar Grant or saw it on You Tube and now you cruising Oakland with some kind of accelerant, a bic and some righteous indignation dashed with stupidity! Aren't ya? Well think on this, while you running round, with your can of accelerant.
