You apparently did not read the OP. His question had nothing to do with censorship.

Why do former Californians still post in CA forums?

What a bizarre interpretation

The implication of the original post is absolutely about censorship. It's simply a disparaging comment used to demean anyone that posts in this forum that no longer lives here. The goal being to shame them into not posting. That's as clear as day.

Yep. That seemed like the rational interpretation to me also.

If that was actually the definition (which it isn't) then the white majority (which won't exist after 2042) has nothing to worry about since whites do not (notice present tense) "prevent people of other races from achieving equal or greater success".

I don't recall that I have ever posted in the CA forum, but I do read it. Why? Because I was born in San Diego and raised there until I was 16, in 1972. It seems to have become a far different place than the one I grew up in. You can take the girl out of California, but you can't take the California out of the girl. It will always be in my heart and soul no matter where I live.

100% correct. The funny thing is that the OP is acting as if they live in Ca and are offended by it, but they still live in North Carolina. The other issue is that apparently they have a second identity on CD and really don't have a sufficient budget to live where they would like which is the topic quite often here : the COL.

Well, reverse racism is kind of a made up silly idea because if every brown or black person rose up today and claimed they hated white people it wouldn't result in them being denied jobs, an education, access to financing, or being treated differently by law enforcement. But over time we have seen all of those things happen to racial or ethnic minorities when white people decided they hated them or simply didn't want them to enjoy the same things that they have access to.

The really sad thing about the way the Demo's are trying to amplify their method of evaluating racism. They think if someone is successful in life they should be attacked first because of their color, then of their character. Hello Socialism......pathetic. As if it's some kind of sin to be successful because surely it's because they've raped the less fortunate to get there. There has never, as an example, been healthcare provided to all that are breathing in this country. Yet at the same time they were rarely ever refused care in a medical emergency. That is likely to continue. The $$$ are NOT there nor will they ever be to support the Democrats suggested healthcare. Of course they could always just print useless money up to support it which they may well end up doing should they get into power.

You need to label it "bizarre" because it doesn't match your interpretation?

I posted for a long time because I missed my home, and wanted to stick up for what I observed growing up.

Now that I’ve been away for 14 years, it’s changed so much that I don’t really have a connection to CA the way I did. I occasionally buzz through as a trucker, and if I see anything relevant, I’ll post about that.
