    I don't think those views are mainstream.

    I think racial fears are actively being promoted by the Democratic Party and the Republican Party because it maximizes their donations and makes their membership base more motivated by fear.

    Most black people just want to live their lives.

    Most white people just want to live their lives.

    And most Hispanics and Asians just the same.

    The last thing we need is organized groups and brainwashed individuals promoting those racial and racism fears, to make everyone afraid they are being targeted, or feeling like shit because they are afraid they are being targeted, or both.

    Real racism does occur by people of all skin colors and ethnicities, by people of all skin colors and ethnicities, but we don't need to make the fear of racism it's own monster, because it produces more racism.

      I will admit, I have been to several countries where racism was much more mainstream than the US.

      It happens, particularly when those countries are much more homogenous than the U.S., or have particularly xenophobic cultures.

          Maybe I'm just burnt out. I need a fucking vacation. A week in Cartagena drinking mojitos and ignoring my phone sounds nice.

            No

            You need to get out more, meet more people and have more experiences in life.

            With you on the whole ignoring the phone though.

            Alas,

            Quit with the whole "woe is me" shtick. It's tiring.

            Contribute to the thread meaningfully or kindly get the fuck off.

              I'm actually trying to get out and be more social these days. It's hard. People stress me out. There's also plenty of shit going on in my life I don't share on the internet. I don't like the internet very much. I think it's a net negative for our society.

                Life is a series of hills and valleys. Until you've overcome the former you can't appreciate the later. This bit of wisdom, real or not, was part of my proposal to my wife a long time ago. She fell for it. Give it a try. What do you have to lose?

                  Well, at least get off Twitter and Instagram. I was sure surprised how controversial the anti-nazi platform has become on social media. I had a guy with swastikas all over his facebook page apply for a job a couple of years ago... by messaging me over facebook.

                  When I didn't message back he got pissed off. I want to say he was fucking nuts one way or another but lately I've gotten the feeling that sanity really is a relative term. What's crazy when the tenets of the National Socialists start gaining traction again? Anecdotal evidence is worthless and all but anecdotally, shit is getting weird out there.

                  The new generation is fucked in the head in both directions. It's a shit show.

                    Well,it's kinda late to be second-guessing herself...and you, for that matter.

                    We just had a chat and some pizza with a former neighbor. Fine young man, got dealt a pretty shitty hand in life, not the worst, but bad enough. He has been working as a part--time janitor at middle and high schools. He is giving 2 weeks notice soon and going to go to lineman school. He has to disentangle himself from his family here, and take care of himself. It's taken him some time to come to that realization, but he seems to be motivated now.

                    I even used Rayce as a good example of a young guy who became a lineman and now owns nice cars and has a smart and beautiful wife.

                        I've got myself a little ritual that helps in instances like this. Find yourself a quiet comfortable place, put on some loose fitting clothing that breathes, kick off your shoes, put on some warm socks, light some incense, put on some candles, pick out a nice strain of something mellow and dig yourself a Floyd Hole.

                        I usually do this while holding my strat so I can silently strum along on the slow parts.

                        To complete this ritual I take a very hot shower and stand buck naked over a box fan.

                        After that I feel 25 years younger.

                          I had an "eco-fascist" lose his shit when we put the kibosh on hitlerposting on a discord server I was the admin of. He burned it to the ground by reporting it for content he himself had posted.

                              It's gaining popularity. Brenton Tarrant was one as well if you believe his manifesto.

                                I'll disagree on blanket painting any one demographic, having met a fair number of racists throughout the world.

                                Encourage anyone to watch the opening minute of Sparticus, Kubrick film circa 1960. A good year.

                                The hate and diversity being pushed by whatever side for whatever reason is something not seen since my youth.
