I am Oaklanese hailing from Oaktown. Aside from having one of the highest crime rates in the nation, Oakland is also home to the most racially diverse populations anywhere. More interestingly, there's just tons of mixed folks here. You cannot throw a rock without hitting one.
So, I'm ANOTHER MIXED KID in the bowl of neapolitan ice-cream. Couldn't be happier about it. Hope you'll hang around to hear more of my rants.
