Portland-based journalist Jacqueline Keeler asked KBOO listeners in light of Congress passing a resolution condemning Trump's racist tweets telling unnamed "Progressive Congresswomen" to "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came," have you ever been told "to go back to where you came from?" And what does this mean in a pluralistic society? Is it racist?
