Antifa vandalize Democrats HQ at Portland anti-Biden protest
A marauding gang of Antifa black bloc militants in Portland vandalized the local Democrat Party headquarters at a violent anti-Joe Biden protest on Sunday. While anticipated mass violence failed to materialize across most American cities, Portland has experienced five nights of unrest since Election Day last Tuesday.
In the latest instance of political violence, Black Lives Matter-Antifa protesters announced and gathered for a “direct action” on Sunday night at Laurelhurst Park in southeast Portland. There, the group of several dozen militants in black uniforms marched to the Multnomah County Democrats building where they proceeded to vandalize the office. They smashed most of the windows and tagged the building with anarchist and BLM graffiti.

The radical communists send out their troops out to burn our cities for months and now wants to have a cordial visit with the President elect...If Biden does this it's sending out a very clear and erroneous message...IMO
Biden, Harris have yet to say whether they will grant requested BLM meeting
Cullors requested a meeting with the Biden/Harris team last week to discuss the movement’s agenda and lay out expectations for the forthcoming administration.

These are leftists for Trump. I think they probably converted many into radical Trump supporters that night.
Unrelated to the BLM stuff but depressing that is an actual thing. I saw a lot of Bernie supporters vote Trump in 2016, apparently not actually giving a shit about the stuff Bernie has been fighting for decades.
Violent Portland Antifa ID’d as 35-year-old trans woman
Isabel Rosa Araujo, formerly known as Philip Vincent Haskins-Delici, is a 35-year-old Portland-based transsexual Antifa militant with a history of extremism. Araujo was part of a group of around 20 Antifa in black bloc who confronted a small conservative pro-police rally last Thursday afternoon in downtown Portland. The two sides argued with each other outside the Justice Center before Araujo, who was wearing a gas mask, used bear mace against one of the right-wing protesters. She was not arrested for assault.
Though this was the latest incident involving Araujo, she has a long history of far-left extremism that once caught the attention of federal authorities. Originally from New Jersey and a one-time Philadelphia resident, Araujo is a prominent Antifa militant in Portland known for creating propaganda drawings and her participation in protests.
Under various monikers, she posts obsessively about Antifa and Maoist politics. She even has an Antifa tattoo on her chest.

When I moved to Richmond in the 1980s, the population of the city was nearly 60% black. About 4 years ago it was very quietly announced that Richmond, for the first time in almost 50 years, no longer has a black majority population. There has been a wave of mostly white young professionals and empty nesters moving here, in many cases gentrifying neighborhoods that had been mostly black, sometimes for generations.
The media rarely talks about black people being forced out of their neighborhoods by the sky rising cost of housing since most of the people forcing them out are the media's liberal darlings from places like Northern Virginia and the New York metro area.
I guess it's just a generational thing with me. Even though I'm white and college-educated, I liked the city better when it had a majority black population. There were a lot more families living here and the population seemed to put down roots and take pride in their neighborhoods. Today the population feels very transient and self-centered.
