The people of Portland, Oregon would like you to know something: sun-loving, beach-lounging Californians are not welcome in their city, thank you very much.
For ages, righteous Portlanders have been unusually affronted by California’s culture, climate, and general population. It seems this attitude is not limited to Portland alone—the phrase “California-hating Oregonians” returns copious results on Google, with posts ranging in tone from playful to proud to genuinely angry. But the wrath of Portland, a city that is home to basically the antithesis of Californians, has been particularly vicious.
Now, though, Portlanders may have some legitimate beef with the Golden State.
