Life in east Oakland


Growin up in East Oakland (Murderz):

Born and raised in East Oakland you hear about someone eather getting jumped, hurt, or killed. You always hope that those people aren't the people you love. Your always worried when you hear the ambulence or the police sirense. You see people kikin it everyday with their friends at the block. Trying to keep there head up hoping that there not the next ones to go. Gangs almost every where you go, always have each others back. You got to make sure you dont step in the wrong block. Trying to get out of the struggle but some never make it and some do. You see immigrants triyng to get a job standing in the corners struggling just to make money to bring home to there families. Even though we got our problems we still got good things in our neighborhood. Theres many places to go to here in East Oakland. Many places to go eat or to just hang out with your patnaz. It's unique people have their own style of dressing, they got scraperz and scraper bikes. Many things that other places dont have.

hey laura gurl. I really liked what you had to say. I agree about the whole being unique thing. It's good to be unique cuz it's not fun when you're the same as everyone else.

Hey Laura!
I like what you wrote on your blog. Its true, a lot of people lose family members and friends, and sometimes those people are not even involved in gangs and things like that.

I agree with everything that you said specialy 'bout the gangs. I mean a lot of people have already died and everyone is just thinking on who's next. Even people who ain't involved inn gangs think 'bout when it'd gonna happen and how.

It's true people are just keeping there heads up and watch there back to see if they are not the next ones to get killed. Some times you never know when you might get shot or even a loved one
