N. Idaho: Golden State hate?

Racism is alive in North Idaho! Here in California we all complain about the Hispanics moving in and taking our jobs away. In North Idaho they hate everybody who isn’t from there.

I’ve gone up there several times over the last 10 years, and it’s just getting worse. As I turned north onto Highway 95 in Coeur d’Alene, a local Idaho lady cut me off. She literally laid on her horn hard as she was flipping me off, and we both came to a complete stop, or I would have collided with her. When I went around and passed her, she held up a sign saying, “California-Go Home!” White people, racist against white people… If you’ve never experienced it, go to North Idaho with California license plates.
