the nytimes has some stuff to say about oakland riots. they have thoughts on black on black crime. sfgate, being the premier newspaper that it is (and yes, that is sarcastic), notes that blacks feel they are unfairly targeted based on their race. wow, does sfgate know that this thing called racial profiling is an actual term. honestly, the paper is very silly. but at least they are reporting something. and it looks like the state prosecutors office will be brought in. good.
the thought depresses me, and the racial tension remains heavy here in the yay. very sad and with a heavy heart i turn my face away from the troubles of the world and focus on things i need to do for myself.
