Abstract

"City" column on race relations in Portland. The author, a black Bowdoin College professor who recently moved from Los Angeles, discovered that poor white men look to bond with him, assuming they share a resentment of wealthy white communities; and black women say black men don't talk to them. Despite Portland's reputation as a haven for black men, the author faults the liberal establishment for failing to make a meaningful cross-cultural community.
