If you are born in CA you’re a Californian, if you grew up there too. Bonus if your parents were born there too. You could live on the North Pole and youd still be more of a Californian than some ******* who moved there 3 years ago from New Jersey or Minneapolis.

Plus you probably have lots of good insight into things, how things have changed, history, culture. I find it interesting posting with people who may have attended the same schools or danced at the same clubs, etc.

I challenge you to find fault with what Trump said:

Um, anyway ... I’m intrigued. Can you supply any information about “racist progressives”? Isn’t that an oxymoron?
I remember a "both sides" thing from over a year ago. Is that recently? Maybe to Laker fans who want to believe their team was relevant "recently". However, a year isn't recent for current events.

You must be speaking for yourself? That's not the case with 95%+ of the rest of you.

Lol. That depends on one’s age, Bear. For many things, 10 years ago is “recent” to me.

If you don't see the vast amount of progressives exhibiting bias about people because of their skin color, then you are not being objective. Part of the pervasive lack of critical thinking and reasoning we see on the left.

You are evading my honest question: examples of liberal racists / racism, please. If you mean liberals are racist because they most often defend minorities, say so. If you mean there are liberals who denigrate and discriminate based on race, say so and identify examples please. Liberals are mostly known to defend minority races.

Affirmative Action
Quotas
Racial Preferences
"Bonus" SAT points for college admission

All of those are based on race and are necessarily racist.

"Harvard sends recruitment letters to African-American, Native American and Hispanic high schoolers with mid-range SAT scores, around 1100 on math and verbal combined out of a possible 1600, CNN reported. Asian-Americans only receive a recruitment letter if they score at least 250 points higher — 1350 for women, and 1380 for men."
