@rechelon did portland used to have a big lebanese community ?

@carlygayjepsen Not particularly, the moniker "Little Beirut" was a slur repeatedly used against Portland by HW Bush and conservatives in the 80s because of how severe our rioting was every time they visited town. (Beirut connoting an urban warzone to them at the time.)
