A filthy, crime-ridden city in the San Francisco Bay Area
. It has a very diverse population, African American being the largest demographic. As an Oakland native, I can tell you that there is quite a bit of racial tension. I pity the fool
who stumbles onto the wrong street corner, especially if he/she is white
But don't worry! You're safe as long as you're smart (i.e. don't whip out your iPod out in the middle of the street). And lucky.
And if you're really going to pussy out, you can always go into one of the few rich white neighborhoods in the hills. You probably won't get shot there. Probably.
This place is great for the typical pot
smoker. Cops don't give a fuck as long as they have murder cases and senseless riots to keep them busy. (Woohoo! Public intoxication!) I wouldn't know, but judging by all the crackheads
one could probably get away with a lot harder drugs, too.
Dude #1: Yo, breh. Let's hit tha town (a.k.a. Oakland) an smoke them grapes before the sideshow.
Dude #2: Fo sho.
