I remember when then-Senator Barack Obama was on a campaign trail and brought his bus to my hometown, Oakland, of all places!  Here is the piece I put together of his visit to this often overlooked California city.


That was almost 2 years ago, when now Vice-President, Joe Biden, was running against  the current U.S. President, along with Hilary Clinton, among others. 


What a journey! Going from This:


to THIS!


While Oakland has been historically known as a politically active city,  It doesn’t get much love around campign/election time.  Lately Oakland has been in the news a lot duue to the unjustified and unlawful killing of Oscar Grant III by Police in Oakland (BART Transit Police), which was captured on tape.  

Here’s the video of the disturbing BART incident. Viewer Discretion is advised.


I look forward to seeing how our new President will combat issues that effect Oakland, and countless other cities, such as racial profiling and discrimination.
When someone commits a crime, chances are, they’ve gotten away with it before.
For every crime that reported, there are at least two or three crimes that go unnoticed and unpunished. Just a thought.

Cold Blooded Killer Cop Caught on Film Quits Force

Posted in news, Observations with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2009 by kinganyi

Oscar Grant III, 22, was shot dead by a BART transit police officer on Jan 1, 2009 at the Fruitvale BART station in East Oakland, California. The officer, Johannes Mehserle, 27, quit the force less than thirty minutes ago!

The Bliznog urges everyone to speak out against police brutality and racial profiling. We live in a day and age where it shouldn’t be tolerated and people are equipt with cameras that capture incidents that SHOULD hold officers accountable, but we all know how that “Blue Magic” is still a factor. You know that “Blue Magic” that freed officers of beating Rodney King, and killing Sean Bell and countless others.

Here’s the video of the BART incident. Three were filmed. Viewer Discretion is advised.


Reminds us of a song from Bun B- Getcha issue… Verse two.
