Born in Portland and lived there until I was 31. Then I moved to Europe and life truly began.
Birth Of A Nation? Yikes. Hey, I can see studying it in film class - it is perhaps the first epic motion picture, despite it's horrific message. In a bar? With singers? That's....sorta weird.
Humanity is full of assholes. Many of them are even in the history books.
Post of the week.
This is about the Beebout case, the murder of Mayra Sophia Cruz Rodriguez. Here's the relevant portion as to what the I,A poster is talking about:
She and her mother were staying with her uncle when the teenager ran away from a Walmart in Vancouver. She ended up at the St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Portland, which provides food and other services to homeless people, and asked for a bus ticket to get back to her California home.
Someone at the parish suggested the teen go to New Avenues for Youth a short distance away. About that time, Beebout walked down the stairs into the parish and a parish clerk suggested he take or help the girl get to New Avenues for Youth, prosecutors said.
Instead, Beebout is accused of sexually assaulting the girl, strangling her to death and dumping her body.
Perhaps it's related to this story, though this incident would've happened last year.
You know sane women?! In Portland?!! Truly, IA, count your lucky stars. I envy you.
@human in training: Major points if you can do that sounding like Ian McKellan.
