Back in Oakland, I immediately noticed an increase in brothers wearing long, oversized white t-shirts, at least along that stretch of High Street that I have to pass through to get onto I-580. That is why this guy got my attention. His t-shirt was not only not oversized; his head was shaved and he was very muscular. Even today, in 2012, long t-shirts are often accompanied by long-ish dread locks. But this brother, with his (relatively) tight t-shirt and buffed-out arms also sported a clean head. I was not the only one who noticed him, either. There were two sisters crossing to go from Walgreens to the strip mall across the street who almost got hit by a car they were looking at him so hard.
