    As a longtime Oakland resident, I'll make several points:

    1) It wasn't that bad. It could've been worse.

    2) People around these parts -- including many non-Oaklanders, and many non-blacks -- just love to protest. They protest like a motherfucker. They like to cause mayhem. It fuckin' sucks.

    3) All these Oakland protests take place in the same 2 block area in downtown. So I was able to walk around last night in a black area with no problems.

    4) Oakland is a poor fuckin city. We don't have enough cops. We have to get the CHP and Alameda County Sheriffs to patrol the city streets because of a lack of Oakland Police officers. And we pay our current cops too much money for doing a mediocre job. Oakland police don't, in general, respond to burglaries. They also have one detective charged with investigating 10,000 burglaries.

    So all these protesters divert resources.

    Fuckin' hate it.

    Oakland is the 4th most diverse city in America, according to this recent study. It isn't black majority.

    http://blog.sfgate.com/hottopics/2013/07/10/what-are-the-most-diverse-cities-in-america/#13935-4

    Oakland's demographics are: 24.9% Hispanic/Latino; 26.3% white; 27% black; 17.5% Asian/Pacific Islander

    And our mayor is Chinese-American.

    Think of Oakland as being like Brooklyn.

    All the rich techies have invaded San Francisco, so the housing prices are out of control.

    So a lot of the creative/middle class has moved over to Oakland.


    WE have a lot of hipsters here.

    We have a lot of white people -- white people who don't want to live in the suburbs who want to live in an urban setting.

    There are bad areas, sure. But you just got to keep away from them.

    Corpus is the least racially charged city I have seen in the south. That being said my wife was detoured through an area called "The Cut". The cop diverting traffic, when he saw she was alone stopped her. He told her that while was following the detour to carefully run any red lights she came to and if anyone stepped in front of the car to run them over and not to stop until out of that area to call the cops :facepalm:

    I wouldn't expect any shit to happen up north at all. If nothing happens tonight then there's no problems. Last night was too late to see any real rioting. Tonight, after having all day long to get more and more upset, and some, more and more drunk, will be the telling tale. Those that want to exploit this have had all last night and today to plant their seeds so that they can blossom tonight. This is a hard one to call. If the home city to this doesn't explode, it makes the rest of the cities that do look like a bunch of chumps.

    Oakland literally spans from the most crime ridden poor areas to the richest in America.
