From a former Oakland resident: Trump is right, the mayor is a disgrace

Washington Examiner, March 16, 2018

Last week, President Trump referred to the mayor of Oakland, Calif., Libby Schaaf, as a “disgrace,” and condemned her for spitting at federal efforts to enforce immigration laws. As a former resident of Oakland, I agree with the president.

I grew up in inner-city Oakland and hated it with a passion. Among other things, I hated the regular breakdown of law and order as well as the city’s casual disregard for the well-being of law-abiding citizens.

Schaaf’s recent rhetoric and actions offer the entire country a glimpse of Oakland’s recurring dysfunction.

Black-on-Asian Violence Raises Troubling Questions

San Jose Mercury News, May 3, 2010

The year 2010, not yet half over, has brought forth numerous sadistic black-on-Asian attacks. One question now stares everyone in the face: What role did racism play in these incidents?

From San Francisco to New York, the recent attacks have been cowardly and horrific. A few weeks ago, two black teenagers punched 59-year-old Tian Sheng Yu in the mouth in downtown Oakland, before and after they assaulted his son. The father fell on his head and passed away a few days later.

In January, black teenagers kicked and beat 83-year-old Huan Chen after he got off a Muni bus in San Francisco. He, too, died from his injuries.

Between late March and early April, five black teenagers assailed five older Asian women, including one who was 71, on separate occasions in or near a public-housing project on the Lower East Side of New York.
