One of the things I point out to others here in California, is that San Francisco used to be Republican. Then it got invaded by outsiders in the 1960's who brought liberal beliefs from elsewhere. I was born and raised in San Francisco, very few natives remain. SF had an unbroken line of Republican mayors almost from the 1906 earthquake to the mid-1960's. used to be decent, now it's crap. The coastal cities got taken over by libs. One daughter relocated to Texas, also born in SF, she's not a lib.

Good for you to point this out! I was born in SF in 1940, and grew up in the East Bay. There was not a better place on this planet to live then. Of the four nationally recognized technical universities, three were here (Cal, Caltech, and Stanford). WWII “helped a bunch.” Blacks came here from the South to work in the defense industry (Kaiser was building ships at the rate of one every 30 days in Richmond). But after the war, the didn’t go “home.” They stayed here and became a chronically unemployed underclass that exists to this day. The only thing that they have been singularly successful in doing is procreating. More recently, the gays “discovered” SF, and now they run the place because they are “politically active” and have gotten themselves elected at all levels of government. How’s a gay female Chief of Police grab you!
Oakland has gone the same way. The last white GOP Mayor in Oakland left office in the mid-1970’s, and with the exception of Jerry the Fairy’s term, all of the rest of them have been minorities (black with one Asian nut case).
But, how is this any different that Detroit, Baltimore, D.C., etc. All run by Rats, and those RATS are mostly Black. Show me a Black RAT-run city of any size that’s prospering. I don’t think you can.
