    I'm open to any nationality/race. However, the following I am weary of:

    South Asian women (i.e. India, Pakistan, etc.) - dating outside their own race is considered taboo, and I don't have time or energy to even go there.

    Black women - if I could find a black woman who's sufficiently open-minded and who isn't a slave to the colour of her skin, I'd be open to dating her.


    dude

    slave to her own skin really?

    seems like you are the one that is closed minded click to expand

    *yawns*

    Culturally, most black women are only interested in black-centric things - music, cinema, literature, etc. I've lost track of how many times, most black women either turn their face at something that isn't black-centric or look at me like I'm a nutter. Watching a foreign subtitled film? Listening to non-commercial music or music from a non-black culture? Although I encounter this problem with all ethnicities, I very rarely ever come across black women who are as open-minded as they claim to be. And I've put MANY of them to the test...

    Oh I get what you mean. I've experienced this with family members but I've always assumed that it was an american thing (because my white friends do many of the same things). I wouldn't say that most black women are like this, probably becauze I see it way less see in my generation(gen Z). And among millenials click to expand

    I really don't get why pointing out there's a pink elephant in the room arouses so much animosity.

    It is what it is... but it's my life and I don't want any part of it. It's that treetrunking simple...

    I know. I assume that what you said simply lined up with your experiences(after all, I have very similar experiences, mine just includes a broader group and possibly an age group)

    The reason why black women get defensive about sfuff like this because we're on the receiving end of many stereotypes, often for no good reason. We're accused of being an angry black woman if we choose to be assertive and freely speak our opinions.

    We are accused of being aggressive, even when we're trying to handle things diplomatically. We're acccused of destroying our families, etc etc etc. Also, many many MANY people that want to tear that black women hide behind innocuous generalizations. "Subtle" racism. From you're perspective, you're sharing your experiences.

    But that's a front that many people use to tear down black people.

    I think the police honestly need more training and more subgroups.


    What about them being armed? click to expand

    I'm fine with that. I don't think them bearing arms is the crux of the problem. honestly I see it as a necessary evil, considering the type of country we live in

    A sag and I were discussing a similar situation that happened with Clarence Thomas's nephew. And this was their response:

    "It doesn't matter how much money you have. You will ALWAYS be black."


    The same applies to other POCs as well.

    This isn't a problem that we can out-income our way out of.

    You'll need to be specific...are we talking white kids or brown kids?


    Does it matter? click to expand


    Absolutely. Especially in Texas. click to expand


    People are people. Shouldn’t matter what race they are. Crime is crime

    To say that it matters means there needs to be racial separatism for punishment click to expand


    You're completely clueless on how our judicial system works, aren't you? click to expand


    Not at all.

    According to what you said, it needs to happen click to expand


    As in different punishments for different races?

    That's already happening. click to expand


    You’re saying it should legally happen though. Discrimination on the legally acceptable level click to expand

    Not twisting anything momma. Just going off what the 2 men have said.

    WHY DO YOU INSIST ON ATTEMPTING TO PRETEND THAT THIS A MATTER OF OPINION? Are you so dedicated to attempting to win this internet argument, that you're actually going to completely disregard scientific studies on this very topic? This is not, a "he said, she said" debate. We have studies. I like you a lot, but FFS.

    I’ve read them. And I’ve already said that this has nothing to do with the topic of racial injustice (that I’ve already agreed to wholeheartedly).

    The only thing I remember is him getting banned with me, and then logging into his original account he "lost" access too for years to make some sort of thread about me that was deleted before I could see it.

    I am sure, one day, he will be back. Honestly, surprised he didn't come back already.

    "my dad is killing me but I don't want to make him feel alienated by leaving"
    ~cloudy, age 18

    When someone has unpredictable nearly psychotic outbursts that lead to physical violence, throwing glasses at the wall, death threats and driving at dangerous prohibited speeds, you start to care about their feelings. It happens either out of thin air or when his favorite team loses. I don’t care about him after everything he put me through, but I don’t want to risk anything by making him feel a certain way click to expand

    If you asked your mom to take you to her house, would she come and pick you up? Would she refrain from contacting him in advance? Can you reach her house by youself?

    Also is she fine with you staying with her?

    Leave the room whenever he does it. Thank him genuinely when he doesn't smoke in the room.

    Also have you talked to your mom about it?

    I stay in my room because he smokes everywhere else and I dont want to breathe that butter. I'm not allowed to lock myself or deny him access so whenever he comes in the smoke fills up the room. They're divorced so my mother has no say in anything he does while I'm at his place. I have talked to him before, he is a doctor, I have respiratory issues that escalated to surgery in March so he should know better. But he always resorts to anecdotal evidence of when he was young and not a smoker and played cards with his friends all night long and the secondhand smoke did nothing to him. Or how some smokers live to ripe old age. Generally the conversation goes like I'm sorry I won't do it again, it's stupid and he simply does it the next day or even the SAME treetrunking day and I'm tired of repeating myself so I just dont say anything click to expand


    Is living with your mother a good alternative? Is it safe? Does she live far(if she does, is she willing to provide transportation?)? Does living with her present a new host of issues(if so, are they are they easier to deal with than your dad's?)

    click to expand

    it is. We had a deal that I live with him till the end of the school year and now that it's over I'm looking for tactful ways to say I'm leaving, because he always interprets it as me preferring him over my mom and its a blow to his self esteem
    Also for over ten years (since they have been divorced) every single week my brother and I had to pack our stuff and spend the weekend with the other parent. I think such was the court decision. I've always despised this stupid time wasting practice and now, even though I'm legally an adult, I'm not sure I can put an end to this. I feel like it will be very problematic, because it will make him feel alienated because I will not only not live with him, but also not visit him every weekend click to expand

    Have you already told him that his behavior makes you consider leaving?

    Aspects and house placements would probably be more helpful.

    What placements? Are you looking for moon signs, moon aspects, mars aspects, etc etc.

    I do have the option to move out, I can live with my mother. He wants me to stay with him forever though. But I'm 18 now so he can't force me. I'm wondering if this seems like a legitimate reason to move out or I'll have to bullbutter him


    Do you want to move out?

    If you do, a "legitimate" reason isn't necessary needed. Do the best for you.
