Thanks for the amazing show. Great guests. Hosts that have intelligent, yet relatable takes on politics, society, and more. I’m looking forward to more historical topics in 2021. My question is mainly for Marshall - I live and work in the Portland Metro area. I’m not a native, but fell in love with the state while attending Oregon State University, GO BEAVS, and moved to Portland after graduating college in 2014. My family have visited often and have fallen in love with the city and all it has to offer, I have no family or relatives here. I’ve been asked many times in 2020 in the wake of the George Floyd tragedy and other subsequent social issues about “what it’s like in Portland?” It’s hard for me to contrast the social aspects of the openness of culture and diversity that is the city and a lot of Oregon with “Proud Boys” and Far Right activism that lives strongly here. I’m an ethnic minority myself and business owner who wants law and order but I understand that racism exists in all institutions, including law enforcement. Can you help me explain this situation and answer this question? Thanks for all that you both do. Saagar, my older brother is a GWU grad as well. Go Colonials...?
