Most Latinos in Oakland (or anywhere else) are NOT gang members.
You're too sensitive, no one is saying ALL latinos are gang members in Oakland. But it can't be denied that a lot of latinos make up the gang population in Oakland.

Military attacks by the Japanese military on the Philippines Archipelago over a century ago have nothing to do with race relations in Oakland.

Well as Mr. Fantasic likes to point out, Oakland is far more dangerous than the Philippines were during WW2. 1 Million Japanese soldiers invading and murdering hundreds of thousands of people is nothing like what goes on in Oakland. Oakland is the modern day battle of Iwo Jima & Luzon rolled into one.

As I stated earlier, I think its a generational thing that I am persuaded to think ended with my generation(Im 36) where people are hung up over dating when it comes to race.

Youngsters now seem so different, so much more accepting, its not a big deal to them. I really like that.
Yep, it began to end in our generation (gen X). It's one of the things that created a huge gap in our and the babyboomer generations.
