It's another literary contest. This time, it's a whole sentence, not just two words. You get to guess the author again. (It wasn't short story, and I'm not actually done with the book, but the sentence stuck out.) Good luck:
Only the scum of the population do it [i.e., abuse or oppress a Chinaman] -- they and their children; they, and, naturally and consistently, the policemen and politicians, likewise, for these are the dust-licking pimps and slaves of the scum, there [i.e., in California] as well as elsewhere in America.
Chris, I'm counting on you to get it, unless Eggshell noses you out (Go, Edsel!).
Same prize, of course. What else do I have, to offer? (I'm worried about that last comma, but I think it works.)
