It's interesting that in LA, the minorities are the ones that tend to exude local "civic pride" the most and dislike the narrative that "everyone here's a transplant".

This reminds me of the situation with DC too, where black residents are most likely to feel civic pride and push back against the idea that everyone's a transplant.
