I appreciate this article for mentioning anything about race. That takes a lot of courage. Though, as a black man, I feel speaking of race primarily through a historical lense is distractionary, if not distancing us in the present from culpability. America's oppressive history is a part of us all, so speaking of a slave-master love affair between whites and blacks really excludes at least these three groups that continue to be underexposed: Native Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic Americans. So in the future, stray from villifying ancient institutions, because it's a rhetorical gimme. From our media sources, I want to see more celebration of contemporary individuals INCLUDING those outlying the circle of white privilege. Let me reiterate, though, that this a great step in the right direction. Thank you!
Great. Once again the white folks of this fair city have decided to remind me that I'm Mr Devil McHonky Motherfucker just for being shot out of momma's vag with a particular combination of hereditary genes.
Black people are only one slice of the diversity pie. If every Asian packed up and left I don't think anybody would notice or even lament on the subject with a featured article.
Had a neighbor who would always call and report my car as "abandoned; been there for weeks, etc." every time I parked in front of her house for even an hour. I think she just hated Volkswagens.
The DT Max bio was decent, but could have been 50 pages long and still been authoritative.
I have no idea why anyone would want to see a movie about DFW. Besides his writing, there is very, very little interesting about his actual life. That's not a knock or anything, just stating a fact. If you're curious, maybe read something he wrote?
Side question: how long is the list of biopics that actually do a solid job?
I've been coming to MFNW from out of state for three years now largely BECAUSE of the multi-venue format. Getting around and experiencing Portland and the various stages around town has been a large part of the attraction and the fun, and the reason I travel to MFNW instead of Sasquatch or Coachella. If they want to replace the Pioneer Courthouse Square shows with similar events at the Waterfront, that's cool, but otherwise I hope they don't wreck what's worked so well in the past.
Still too soon and entirely unnecessary. While the people involved may be sincere, it certainly feels like a cash grab by Lipsky.
Informative article. Thank you
No soup for you! :)
A Shrubbery? Nigh Nigh!
I doubt any child over the age of 6 really believes Santa is an actual person....its been awhile for me, but I am pretty sure my Uncle left me that present. Which in the grand scheme of things was just fine
As to your question, it is a good one. I would think perhaps this is due to not wanting or being unable to fund the design of a different weapon to employ the munition. Again, yours is a very valid question
ujfoyt, generally the shotgun itself is visibly marked either with orange, yellow or sometimes green markings to distinguish it as a dedicated non lethal weapon to be loaded only as such. Note that these rounds can cause fatalities however. It is a violation of Police Procedures to carry lethal rounds while carrying a less than lethal weapon. So it is obviously unclear how this happened. Disclaimer: I am not nor have I been a Police Officer.
The exclusionary policies were a sad legacy of Oregon’s earlier history (and in part were a result of the number of immigrants from Midwestern states like Illinois and Indiana that had similar exclusion laws at the time). There was just as much racism in "free states" of the period that didn't want to deal with a free black population.
At the same time, even without the exclusion laws, I'm not sure how many blacks would've migrated to Oregon earlier on, considering most of our neighboring states that didn't have such laws didn't end up with much of a black population either. Washington historically has never had that large of a black population outside of a few parts of Seattle and Tacoma areas (which was post-1940s migration mostly), Idaho has much less than even Oregon, and even California didn't have much of a black urban population until the 40s. There are various reasons for the lack of much of black population in the Pacific Northwest--racist policies of the past could be one, but location a long ways from The South and the nature of the historical economy here is another...

I've found that putting a greenhouse on the North side of a lot, actually is better positioned to receive more Southern Sunlight on the far side of the clear lawn, unobstructed by a bordering hedge of shrubbery.
Unsullied by the hands of hipsterdom until now, thanksafuckinlot
They make an awesome drink there, its a ceramic bowl filled with fruit and Hard Alcohol.
Interesting article. Thank you.
Additional facts I would be interested in knowing would be numbers of blacks as the population grew. Sounds like it was very small at the time of statehood, but as it grew in the 1900's, how did that look in terms of numbers.
The other analysis I would be interested in, though it may be impossible to know, is to what extent blacks would have migrated here sooner had it the state been more welcoming and not openly exclusionary. Would there have been a cultural or economic impetus for blacks to move out here from the East? I could see the migration still being low because Oregon was still a long way from anything at that point, but then they would have been drawn by the timber jobs like white migrants.
You are forgiven, my careless denizen.
On that same note, if your apt building basement has limited bike storage, only store your bike there if you ride it often. In my building all the daily bike riders have to haul their bikes down and back up 3-4 flights of stairs because of all the bikes collecting dust in the bike room.
