The Discovery of Racial Inequity in Portland

“In one of the episodes of Portlandia there is a vignette involving two people in a restaurant worrying about whether an organic, free-range chicken is free enough and organic enough. In the end, the people abandon the restaurant to go out to visit the chickens.

For those of you who live outside of Oregon, such a scene would appear to be far in excess of reality but for those who live in and around Portland, the scene is blushingly accurate. Portlandia doesn’t necessarily represent the majority of people who live in Portland, but it is dead on when it comes to those who run Portland.”

Funny but true…
