Just one more reason why my friends and I avoid Dublin/Pleasanton/Livermore. So much easier to go to WC. Bad planning, too much traffic, too many thugs from Oakland coming in and out.

Resident3, don't say "thugs from Oakland" when you clearly mean black people. You and your little friends can stay in your uncultured white washed bubble, that's just fine.

To Residentone of Blackhawk; your comment is ironically hilarious: "You and your little friends can stay in your uncultured white washed bubble, that's just fine." That's just what Blackhawk is, but even worse, Blackhawk is a gated community intended to keep "thugs from Oakland" out. Thanks for the good laugh!

I hear the criticism of the "Oakland thugs" comment and thought the same thing but I won't go on about it.

I want to address a larger issue: Where are these comments coming from?! I mean really!? Is it subconscious racism? Is it overt racism in response to the inciting language of the contentious election and presidency? Is it an age issue (older folks tend to be more conservative)? An education issue? I must have lived in a bubble before I bought a house and moved to this area because I thought we were living (to some extent) in a post-racial America. I have never felt more division and deep distrust than I have in the last year or two. Yes, the neighborhoods are picturesque, the schools are supposed to be good, the parks safe, but when I think about the negativity that permeates the atmosphere in this area, I feel really sad for my kids.

To: "Another Resident" Why don't you move to Oakland or Richmond & quit complaining about people here that are concerned about home invasions, armed robberies (2ea recently @ Costco)& auto thefts.

"Resident:"

Are you complaining about my 1st Amendment rights to voice concerns about the level of vitriol I hear in this area? STOP BEING A NASTY BULLY!

I'm here, I'm staying and I'm bringing my friends over. You and your kind can slither back to whatever RACIST cesspool you came from.

The only one that brought up "race" is "Residentone" Opposition to bringing in thugs is about opposing crime, nothing else.
