A city in California on the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay. A beautiful city with beautiful weather.

Oakland is known for its great sports teams, the A's and the Raiders. It is also known for its sideshows and high murder rate.
Oakland is a great place to take a vacation, because there are no other tourists there.

NOT just a gehtto. Do dare to enter. Oakland has tons of hella nice areas. Rockridge, Clarmont, Downtown, Uptown, Grand Ave., The Oakland hills, and North Oakland are all really awsome. The topagraphy is beautiful too and it is right next to Berkeley which is hella cool and right across
the bay from San Francisco. So when someone tells you that oakland is just a huge ghetto, they're wrong.
Me "Hey dude wana just chill out in Pleasanton."

Justus: "Hell no lets go to rockridge in oakland and bomb some hills and eat bagels."

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.
