Episode 30 – Growing Up Outside Of Oakland Chinatown

Edward Thomas – Growing Up Outside Of Oakland Chinatown


Oakland News Now – Edward Thomas – Growing Up Outside Of Oakland Chinatown – video made by the YouTube channel in the video’s upper left hand corner. OaklandNewsNow.com is the original blog post for this content.

When one of my subscribers asked me to talk about the things that have formed me, I had no idea that this would lead to so many videos. This one is about some of the ways in which growing up outside of Oakland Chinatown has contributed a lot to who I am today.
From having mostly friends of Chinese descent och belonging to Asian Club in Jr High to going to High School youth group at Chinese Bible Church, my life and the way that I think has been greatly impacted by the Chinese community of Oakland, California.
Even today many of my closest friends in the States are Chinese. I don’t hate being African American if that is what someone might think. I am both. hahhahha 🙂 I don’t eat with chopsticks because I am trying to show off it is because that is what feels right at the time.

I am grateful for my friends and when I visit the States I like to eat real Mexican food, walk through Chinatown to enjoy the sights and smells of my youth, listen to gospel music and go to church. Let me know what you think about this video and thank you for following along in this journey. Keep praying for me and my family as well as the ministry of Cross Culture Christian Fellowship in Uppsla, Sweden.
be blessed!


Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
