Holy Moley Alexandra Wallace is from the Sacramento Area,Just Saying for Sunday March 20,2011

Wow, how did  I missed that one…..

After watching her viral video, I assumed Alexandra Wallace was from some afluent Orange County Community where there were few people of color.     I was half right.  She’s from an affluent community,who would have “thunk” it was  Sacramento suburb of Fair Oaks.

Alexandra graduated from Bella Vista High School in 2008.

According to the Bee, her father John Wallace is a local retail developer.

Alexandra has received hundred of death threats at UCLA.  She has apologized.

I am sure she has received hundred of media requests.   If she and her parents are smart, they wont accept any of them. as anything she say now, any apology will simply insight.

She as has said enough to last a lifetime.   If I were her father, I would pull her out of school, she is not safe and will forever be the girl….  I would suggest she take a year off, let her hair return to its natural color and possibly, start over in a school outside the state of California.

Is she a racist? I don’t know

Did she make a racist statement?  Absolutely!

We live in a world where your last movement is recorded.   A world where people choose to tape an event of someone in harms way instead of helping.

Here on Sacratomatoville, I post videos of restaurant fights. There are several angles of the fight but no one is stepping in to end the fight.

Students may pause and think before uploading a video or posting to twitter as a result of Alexandra postings….   Or may not..    We may continue to  have a cases of women taping the fight of her two daughters and posting it on net.

For now lets hope Alexandra has learned.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
