• Austin
• Boston
• Los Angeles
• Mountain View, California
• New York
• Pittsburgh
• Seattle
• Washington, D.C.

Watch out Seattle. History tells us this could get ugly.

Reading through the posts, it looks to me that the OP has had his hat handed to him.

He had it coming. The whole purpose of the thread was to give the OP a chance to play one-up.
He failed.

As a southern black man, I just cant buy the PNW being as accepting as people claim. It's easy to claim "tolerance" when there arent many "others" around to begin with. In my experience, I sense the most racial undertones when I'm in places where there arent many other blacks around.

Throw all the stereotypes out the window. In "intolerant" Mississippi, I'd feel much more welcome in some 65% black Delta town than some 95% white town in "liberal" Oregon.

Sounds to me like maybe he understands something about it you either don't or don't want to.

From your post, I don't know if you are ageeing with me or not. I am a Washington State native and I can say most here are not judgmental due to race.

How much of that has to do with you feeling more comfortable with being around people who look like you?

If. These punks are not causing trouble like Trump says or equally causing trouble then why did they choose to march in areas where they know they won't be welcome
