Uhuru Rears its Ugly Head Again

[3/29 Update: See and donate to a Spot.us story pitch on this.]

I attended last night’s vigil. The energy felt mixed, with excitement and joy of a community gathering and youth drum corps, mixed with trepidation at the previous days’ events and a worn tension seems to pass for normal in East O near the mall.

I can verify this: Based on the number of attendees, most Oaklanders still want, respect and expect the rule of law. East O has much potential and there are good pockets even there.
