Photos from the peaceful protest against the murder of Oscar Grant

By now, you've already heard about Wednesday's peaceful-turned-violent protest against BART police for the death of 22-year-old Oscar Grant, who was shot and killed by a BART police officer on New Year's Day. Most reports highlight the instance when the protest turned into a riot damaging more than 300 storefronts and several vehicles (including cop cars) and setting small fires. Rightfully so, the people are fed up and sometimes it takes hurling a brick through a window to get a point across. I'm all for flipping cop cars, but breaking the windows of independent minority-owned businesses and burning the cars of random Oakland citizens loses sight of the cause.

Regardless of the violence that occurred later in the evening, those demanding justice held a successful peaceful protest earlier that day. But, as the saying goes in the news industry, "If it bleeds, it leads," and negative news will always trump positive news. However, Ninoy Brown at FOBBDeep gives a brief firsthand account, writing that "passion and emotion filled the crowd of what was estimated to be around 700" at the Fruitvale BART station.

Freelance photographer and Oh Dang! contributor Kirstina Sangsahachart was also there and shares her photos from the peaceful protest below.--Zoneil Maharaj

i'm glad the people held a protest but...fucking up black-owned businesses? wtf? did you read those articles? some of the quotes from the "protestors" were completely and utterly ignorant. don't use this young man's death to simply fuck shit up. that's exactly what they want us to. "you see how rowdy these black folk can get. we had to use lethal force..."

Black pumps with an elegant heel can compliment just about any outfit. Flip-flops, slippers and flashy athletic shoes are not acceptable in the office.

The temptation to dispense with adequate notice because "no one participates anyway" or simply to get the job done may be too great should the decision-makers be in total control of the system.

I rarely write remarks, however I looked at a few of the comments on this page Oh Dang!. I actually do have some questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it seem like some of these remarks appear like they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you make a list of every one of all your social networking pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
