I have always known Oakland to be a city of unrest. More recently, the people of Oakland have stood up not only for themselves, but also people around our country who are being sentenced with injustice. I cannot claim to be a victim of the same oppression that Oakland faces everyday. But I do not feel right making any further art without pointing out how strong Oakland is. Their history, Their progression, culture, art, and honor.
When San Francisco wouldn't give me the time of day, Oakland welcomed me with open arms. Oakland showed me that the most romantic experiences in life are free, riches can be taken away and your people are forever. Thank you Oakland, your outward growth inspires the world.
