2023.03.25 23:38 Any-Discussion-5934 What should I do about my attraction?

I am black, grew up in a 95% black country. But as far I can remember my primary attraction was always mostly towards white men, as a kid my first celebrity crush was Kevin Costner and I wanted to be Whitney Houston and so on.
I started to have sex at an early age, I knew I always wanted to bottom but I never really enjoyed it. When I told other bottom friends that bottoming was always painful no matter what the size and the guy expertise they never understood why(me either).
The first time I got insanely crazy about sex was with a 42 years old French white guy, I was 21. when he stopped talking to me I went through a depression (didn’t know what depression was until recently), it lasted almost a year. It was the first time I felt like needing a man in my entire existence. My entourage could see me suffering but couldn’t put a finger on it.
2 years later I met my Belgian white boyfriend we were together for 3 years( the happiest years of my life). He made me discover myself, my sexuality, my identity, gave me the best sex I ever had. And with him I started to collect the dots that I only feel that intense emotion and connection only with white men.
Before him I already had sex with more than 70 guys by the age of 23, and only 1 black guy gave me enjoyable painless sex. I could get fucked multiple times a day by him and only feel pleasure while the others were mostly painful.
After him I dated a Latin guy for almost a year, I was madly in love with him, but it’s now that I recognize that I was in love with who he was but sex was never really that great, most of the time I ended up bleeding during penetration, I gave him sex cause I was horny and he wanted but not because it was enjoyable.
Moved to the US in 2017, I had a lot of sex with every ethnicity, there were always the same pattern, most of white guys give me painless sex while with the other non whites were extremely painful with me bleeding.
2020 was THE COUP DE GRACE, met that British guy with 9 inches, we fuck always without lube, no pain involved at all, never enjoyed getting fucked like that, it felt like a drug, my whole body was at his mercy, no gag reflex, no repulsion. He was shocked seeing how easily I took his cock everywhere, lockdown came and he became distant.. went through a severe clinical depression and anxiety, I’m still on medication….
My therapist did a throughout job, we found out that my attraction to white men is not even comparable to other ethnic groups. And that I’m also only happy in relationships while my body counts is over 500.
Now I hate myself, I don’t see a way out of it when living in a country where white guys see u as a useless cumdump. While European guys are so considerate, respectful, don’t treat you like disposable garbage for their last option. It’s becoming increasingly unsustainable at this point and I don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel

2023.03.25 23:35 septiclizardkid Yet Another Black Hebrew Nationalist Meltdown In Moore Square.

IYDK (skip for story): Black Israeli Nationalism Is a fringe religious movement that rejects widely accepted definitions of Judaism and asserts that people of color are the true children of Israel,
Black Hebrew Israelites are not Jews and Black Jews are not the same as Black Hebrew Israelites. Black Jews and Jews of color are genuine members of the Jewish faith.
Black Hebrew Israelites identify specifically with the biblical Israelites and consider Judaism, Christianity and Islam to be false religions.
BHI presents slavery, racism, incarceration and other social ills as divine punishments for disobedience that can only be cured through BHI ideology.
Extremist Black Hebrew Israelites assert that white people are agents of Satan, Jews are liars and false worshipers of God, and Blacks are racially superior and the only true “chosen people.”
So what happened today as me and my friend was playing, a group of runners passed by, one of them was wearing a piece of fabric that was long, but by no means a dress.
Guess who blew a fuse over It. This mall ninja pulls out a crappy sword and threatens them, saying "God hates you" and other Cartoony villian shit.
Now, I am Black, I'm officially an "adult" (18), I'm also a Christian, and don't see how God can love everyone except for non-whites and jews. It's blasphemy and using the Bible as an excuse, and frankly It's disgusting.

2023.03.25 23:33 SpeeNutch Shocking claims by supposed Canadian military officer

Disclaimer: I found this article hidden on the wayback machine after going down one of the many rabbit holes of extraterrestrial life. While these statements and the person that wrote the article are somewhat questionable to me, I found it weird that they were deleted from at least 2 different sites and were only avaliable via wayback machine. Also weird that the story somewhat connects with the claims of Phil Schneider, before he was killed. Still, take these with a big grain of salt.
Are the Hidden Underground Military Bases the Real Headquarters for the New World Order?A former Canadian military officer finally goes public with shocking information he learned while working at an underground base at Cold Lake in Canada. Although some may say his story is pure fiction, others claim the secrets to the New World Order's depopulation plan lies underground.20 Oct 2005
By Greg Szymanski
Everyone is talking about the New World Order and a one world government, but according to a former Canadian military officer, nobody wants to believe its true sinister nature lies in the mysteries surrounding thousands of deep underground military bases scattered throughout the world. Here is his story:
Timothy of Canada tells a wild story, a story of underground military bases where animal and human sacrifices nourish the bowels of creatures that have inhabited the earth long before man arrived.
He doesn’t expect anybody to believe him, saying most people will think he’s talking science fiction anyway. But nevertheless he feels compelled to speak, feeling compelled to risk life and limb as the New World Order zeroes in on the last stages of its incredible worldwide population reduction plan.
“They have been delayed with their plan to reduce the world’s population by 80 percent but the globalists are now stepping up their activities,” said Timothy, who refuses to use his real name, in an extended conversation this week from Germany, where he’s employed in the aerospace industry.
“I am not about to use my name, risking incarceration as I would be in violation of our country’s State Secrets Act. Also, do you know that more than 3,000 people have been killed for trying to talk about what goes on in these underground bases. It’s basically a death sentence when you start getting too close to the nerve center of the real New World Order’s plans.”
And Timothy says the real heart and soul of the New World Order plan lies in the mysterious underground military bases scattered all over the world, including roughly 30 in Canada, 140 in the United States and more than 1,500 worldwide.
He became privy to this top secret information when he served as a junior officer in the Canadian Armed Forces in the aerospace engineering branch, while working at one of the top secret deep underground military bases at Cold Lake in Canada.
And what he learned and what he has been researching ever since leaving the military is how this network of underground bases not only houses and conceals non-human life forms with incredible powers, but conceals an underground warehouse of sophisticated super-human technology used for mind control, advanced military weaponry and weather manipulation with the eventual goal of depopulating the world.
“Most people, including most of the so-called patriots, are sincere about defeating the New World Order, but they are really looking in the wrong direction. They need to uncover, expose and alert the people of the world what’s going on below the earth’s surface,” said Timothy who likes to talk in a machine gun, rapid fire fashion, as he recalled first being alerted to the underground military base phenomenon when he researched the mysterious events surrounding cattle manipulation in Alberta, Canada, in the 1970’s.
“It is very dangerous and you could be killed if you try to expose what the globalists are doing with this network of tunnels and underground facilities, but I have ended my silence since they are now in the final stages of there plan. Remember, AIDS being manufactured? Well, what’s in store for mankind is now much worse and we need to do everything we can to try and stop the destruction of the world as we know it.”
Although Timothy’s story can easily be dismissed as pure fantasy, stories like his have a funny way of getting under your skin, a funny way of creeping up on you right before you fall asleep at night. They have a strange way, no matter how outlandish and unbelievable they are, to solicit questions in your mind like “What if he is telling the truth and what if these sinister plans and military bases really do exist?”
Even though Timothy has promised from his undisclosed location in Germany to provide names of at least three other people, making this initial story an ongoing saga, he provided a battery of questions and perhaps a scientific Shakespearean soliloquy of sorts in the interim, explaining why he decided to go public and why it is imperative to uncover the secrets of the underground military bases.
“With the outbreak of the flu virus I feel compelled to break my silence. Maybe some of you have heard the term New World Order and feel confused about its significance.
“From this point let’s put everything into a series of hypotheticals. Maybe I do not wish to break the Official Secrets Act and wind up incarcerated. Let us pretend I am about to reveal ultra-sensitive information to you. Please approach this with an open mind.
“In the late 1970s I first became aware of the cattle mutilation phenomenon living in Alberta, Canada. The reasons given were unusual for this and it was the suppression of the outcry and true angst I sensed from the cattle farmers protesting outside of Calgary that first got to me.
“This was the first time I realized there was something seriously wrong. The hush-hush of this left a lasting impression.
“Let us assume I served as a junior officer in the Canadian Armed Forces in the Aerospace Engineering Branch. One base was Cold Lake.The members of this base wondered innocently why this was the only base where it was required to always wear a black radiation exposure detector.
“Maybe this is due to a Deep Underground Military Base with unusual aerial phenomena a few hundred statute miles north almost straight in line with Cold Lake bordering with Saskatchewan.
“What if you were to realize that Canada has over 30 DUMBs,and its neighbor to the south has over 140 active DUMBs. Worldwide there are now over 1500 DUMBs.
“Let us assume all North American DUMBs are connected below by oxygenated magnetoleviton trains from Krupp, Germany, and are able to reach MACH2+, having the tunnels vacuumed of air to eliminate air resistance. Adjacent to this is a subterranean tunnel highway.
“Let us assume that many of these bases are actually underground cities for beings that in actuality have resided here for millennia. Do you have the courage to believe this?
“All patriots who are willing to resist this New World Order should realize that globalists who have submitted are not the only problem. Maybe they have sold the rest of us out-thinking they will survive and not be enslaved as the remaining.
“What if by 2029 the global population is to be massively reduced, the remaining subjects enslaved and hauled off to underground slave labor factories to serve the global elite?
“What if the SDI project is in reality a weapon system to ward off unwanted "guests". Maybe all countries were fighting secretly a global war against strangers once they realized in the late 1970s that true intentions of inhabitants of these DUMBs were evil beyond belief.
“What if society cannot handle the truth?
“What if Eisenhower decided at Holloman AFB keeping things secret would prevent mass panic and decay into total anarchy? Examining the panic Y2K generated, has society become more courageous with time? I, for one forgive Eisenhower.
“What if over 8 million humans have literally been devoured by residents of these bases, the majority nourishing themselves with human glandular secretions?
“I do not expect anyone to believe this. But let us assume I have been privy to a lot of horrific information. Let us assume that in reality there are 143 elements in the periodic table. Maybe the only way the SR75 can reach MACH9+ is by using metal technology not of this world? Maybe the stealth aircraft use special coatings combined with electrochemical electronic countermeasures. Maybe this is why the stealth never were used when it rained in former Yugoslavia?
“Maybe the cloaking technology successfully tested at Tonapaz Range and S2 employs high frequency helix devices in the leading edges of the newest generation vehicles, refracting light making the aircraft invisible.
“Maybe I have dealt with metallurgic technology with crystalline structures not of this earth? Maybe the general public has been kept in the dark for many decades.
“I wish things were not the way they are. Nobody has the right to sell anyone out. Maybe I would not be revealing anything if I was not certain that all the secrecy and timeline is reaching a climax. We are all going to have to assert ourselves beyond belief. We have been lied to and we thought we were doing our best for betterment.
“I know mankind is destroying this planet, but I refuse to be enslaved. I am sick of the lies and the New World Order agenda. Maybe the force driving it resides in these bases. If you sense your freedoms are being revoked, you are not mistaken.
“After the last element of gun control is implemented, all freedoms will be removed within a ten year period. Never surrender your weapons. I wish this was not happening and I have had many sleepless nights, but for me I cannot stand it anymore. Never believe that the One World government is good for us. Observe the dismantling of nations now and how the United Nations is taking over.
“I wondered back then why is the Canadian military shrinking. This is no accident. The American military is becoming more and more the global force combined with NATO. What can we do? Well, I know this. I will not cooperate with anyone who has sold me out. I will fight for every right I have, simultaneously enjoying the freedom of travel which still exists. Not for long though.
“I will not believe whatever the World Health Organization dictates. Do not believe anything?
“Examine the new Denver International Airport. Maybe in reality below it is a massive DUMB with 8 levels. Why does the fence point inward? Why the unusual security? Maybe the tent spires are in actuality large ventilation shafts to the subterranean levels. Start with this airport please. If you cannot find anything bizarre there then I feel sorry for you.
“I do believe in God.He gives us faith.The New Testament in the Book of Genesis refers to the son of God. The Old Testament refers to the sons of Gods. Both refer to the serpent or demons.Maybe the residents of the DUMBs are what were meant - a serpent race.
“God bless you. Remember, this information and revealing it is not without peril. Be wise!”

2023.03.25 23:29 falcon3268 Continued searching and found a war crime or is it?

Okay all,
So here is something new that I just found out but I am not sure if it truly can be listed as a war crime. After getting my mom involved on the research and after looking over the records, I came across a name and a date. Asa Valentine Ladd 1864. Turns out that he was my ancestor that served with the Confederacy during the Civil War that was captured in Missouri and sent to a prison in St. Louis.
Then this event happened-
At the Battle of Pilot Knob, near Bloomfield, Mo., in Sept. 1864, a Union Major (James Wilson) and six of his men were captured by the Confederates. According to Brig.-Gen. Thomas C. Fletcher, USA, "they were held for one week, then turned over to Major Tim Reeves, CSA (called a guerilla by the Union Forces) of Marmaduke's command. It has never been determined who gave the order, but Major Wilson was taken out and hung and his men were shot. When word of this murder reached Gen. Rosecrans, commanding the Department of the Missouri, he issued a retaliatory order to the effect that a Major and six enlisted men of the Rebel captives be shot. In carrying out this order, only those prisoners who refused to take the Oath of Allegiance to the Federal Government were selected. These men were marched into a room where they were ordered to draw lots. A container which held marbles or small balls, of which there were six black ones, was held above eye level so the men could not see the color they were drawing. The ones drawing a white marble were paroled - those drawing a black one were to be executed.
And Asa was one of the soldiers that was executed when he wasn't even responsible for the incident. And just FYI I found this off this site-
The Asa Ladd Story And Letters (
Could this be considered a war crime for being executed for the actions of other soldiers?

2023.03.25 23:29 Phallus_Maximus69C Sniper Elite in the Pacific: Manchuria 1945

Sniper Elite in the Pacific: Manchuria 1945
Japanese Kwantung Army.
After France, the series should go over the globe to the Pacific against the Japanese, local forces and the Soviets. The Soviets unleashed an all out offensive in August 1945 and routed the Japanese Kwantung Army. This scenario could have Karl fighting anyone and everyone in the hunt for some Japanese superweapon the West doesn't want falling into Soviet hands.
The Soviet invasion was an armaggedon in the area and the chaos it produced is felt even today. The Soviets dismantled Chinese industries in their occupied sectors and brought back everything that wasn't nailed to the ground (just as they did in Germany) and this contributed to Mao's victory in 1949. The Soviets also conquered Korea, leading it to be divided in two countries. The Soviets also invaded the Japanese islands in the Kurils.
Map of the Soviet movement.
The Battle of Berlin ended in May 1945, while the Pacific campaign was still raging up; and it woulg go on to the first ten days of September 1945. US president Roosevelt asked Stalin to declare war on Japan and open a new front in Manchuria. Stalin asked for six months in order to shift his forces from Germany to the East. It is perfectly feasible for Karl to be sent to fight in Burma and China in special assignments for SOE and OSS.
Those missions could be critical in stopping Operation Downfall, the planned invasion of Japan set for September 1946. One such invasion on Japanese holy ground would be an absolute blood bath (so many Purple Hearts were ordered they are still being awarded). The Americans planned to send in 5 million men in the operation, plus allied French, British, Canadians and ANZACs.
Forces: The Soviets, Japanese and Chinese
Soviet troops entering Harbin, 21 August 1945.
The Soviet Red Army was the largest land force in the world, and fell like a hammer on the Japanese and their Chinese allies. The Soviets in Manchuria would fight with a mix of Soviet and US lend-lease equipment, plus modern and earlier Soviet equipment, as divisions would have come from Berlin and others from the Soviet east, and those would be equipped in 1939 equipment; such as the SSh-36 helmet "Khalkingolka". This would give variety to Soviet soldiers. The Shermans from Zombie Army could be recycled as Soviet lend-lease Shermans for the player to blow up. The Soviet Army also had the help of the Mongolian army, and the Soviet Naval Infantry (marines) had distinctive black uniforms.
The Soviets also employed "Diversionary Units" (Spetsnaz, special forces) deep behind the Japanese lines, which could also be an interesting plot point.

'Landing in the Kuril Islands', painting by Russian artist A.I. Plotnov, 1948. The black and white uniforms are clearly visible.
The Kuwantung Army was considered an elite and a source of pride in the Japanese military. The army was a Japanese force augmented by Chinese and Mongol auxiliaries (plus a brigade of Russians). Among those Chinese puppets was the Manchukuo puppet emperor Puyi's forces. They had similar Japanese uniform, with headgear slightly different and receiving some "passable" training. The Japanese had an extensive illegal trade of Opium in occupied China that grew steadily during the Japanese tenure, used in order to fund their occupation; this could be explored somehow to hamper their operations.
The unforgiving terrain of the Pacific, with thick vegetation and gigantic trees, had its own rules for sniping. The Japanese were masters of camouflage and concealment, with Japanese snipers being found in trees, manholes, tunnels and fighting to the death. The Japanese could bayonet-charge your sorry ass in the game with some sort of animation for the player to escape/deal with it.

The Chinese
Pro-Japanese Chinese soldiers armed with SIG M1920 submachine guns (Swiss-made MP18). They have mostly Japanese-style unifom, with one of them using a former KMT M35 helmet.
Forces in this massive operation included not only the Soviet mechanized juggernaut and Japan's most intact forces in the mainland, but also the Mongolians allied with the Soviets, and the Japanese puppet state of Manchukuo's Kwantung Army, both of them having Mongol horsemen just like in Medieval Ages. The Chinese fighting in the war were all over the place:
  • There were the Chinese of the Nationalist forces (KMT);
  • The communist forces of Mao Zedong;
  • The pro-Japanese troops;
  • And the Warlord Armies, which were private and changed sides all the time.

Soldiers of a private Warlord army in the movie The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008). They wear those brassards because then they could change sides at short notice.
Chinese KMT sniper school, 1937.
All of those could either help or attack the protagonist according to changing allegiances, without prior warning to the player. Karl speaks Russian, so he can understand the Soviet, but he does not speak either Japanese or Chinese. This would force him to depend on a Chinese contact, an Zombie Army already gave us one: Jun. She is a soldier from the Kuamintang (KMT) and, according to her in-game headgear option, Jun's Cap option states she was once apart of the Eighth Route Army. This army was one of the competent ones of the KMT but it was only nomially subordinated to it: they belonged to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). So she could play a double game.
Jun as seen in Zombie Army 4: Dead War.
Wonder weapons
Since Sniper Elite always has some sort of Wunderwaffe, one mission could be about destroying a Japanese Tiger. In real life, they could not ship the Tiger to Japan because the seas belonged to the Allies, but in this case at least one (or maybe 2?) could have arrived and its destruction would become a top priority, needing the sniper with the deepest voice to deal with it.

The main Wonder Weapon could be a toxic gas from experiments conducted by the dreadful Unit 731 who could give the Japanese the illusion of being able to defeat the Allies in the Home Islands, and thus keep fighting instead of surrendering - atomic bombs notwithstanding.
The Japanese also had armoured divisions in China (yes, divisions), and they had some heavier tanks in the Japan proper for their planned last stand. For the sake of storytelling, they could garrison a few of those in Manchuria defending secret bases involved in their grand project.

2023.03.25 23:28 PersimmonPuddingPoop Help me figure out how much to save for our remodel

We bought a 3500 sq ft house built in the 90s that was renovated by flippers before we bought it. It's livable and fine but it was done half-assed and with low-quality materials and finishes.
In 3 to 5 years we are hoping to do a major remodel and upgrades to the inside and outside.
Hoping to use one company/GC to do everything. Based on the list below how realistic do you think it is to use one company/GC? Or do you think we'll need to hire multiple contractors?
Also how much do you think we'd expect to have to save or borrow to get all of this done? 200k? 300k? 500k? I really have no idea other than that I know it will be quite a bit. We are in the DFW suburbs.
We love this community and location and plan to retire here so spending whatever to be comfortable here is worth it to us.
The wish list is copied and pasted below. Thanks for any insight or comments.

2023.03.25 23:27 That1314Dude38 More happened at the end, but I couldn’t remember unfortunately

It starts in this apartment complex. There are a lot of people that live there and it’s pretty run down. I’m in Dons’ apartment, it’s a big apartment but that’s because the interior walls have been taken out (or rotted out). There is another family that lives there, I guess in their respective no walled apartment. There is an older man laying on a ratty couch, I go over to him but I don’t really say anything, it’s just a feeling. I look to my right and the other family ( Saudi’s I think) have people laying on their kitchen table that is against the wall. I see a kid climb atop one of these people and yell “STAB”! As he brings a knife down and into this person. For whatever reason I don’t even flinch but just turn back to the man on the couch. Still nothing is said but otherwise felt, a feeling of forboading. I slowly feel the need to get out of this apartment and away from this complex. As I am about to get up, one of the Saudis comes over and puts his business card in my hand, as I take it I notice it’s wet, when I look down at it, it crumbles into pieces, I walk towards the door. As I’m about to leave the apartment I look back towards the Saudi family, there is a man holding a bat ( Dad I assume) and someone crawling slowly on the floor out of their kitchen into Dons’ apartment. I see a kid jump up behind the crawling person and yell STAB!! as his full weight and kitchen knife comes down into the back of the crawling man, at this point I know…I must go immediately or become another fatality. I rush out without realizing I forgot to grab my phone, at this point it doesn’t matter, I just want out. I break for the front door and rip it open. There are stairs right outside, no matter how many times I try to run up them I’m still at the bottom of the apartment building, I hear chaos all around me, the sounds of children screaming STAB!! but yet their victims make no sounds as they are eviscerated. There are others just running, not knowing where they are going, not realizing they cannot get out of this complex of hell. I am finally able to get out into a common area, I’m behind a wooden fence about hip level. I look straight out onto a large courtyard and see a big dog (Great Pyrenees more than likely) covered in soot or possibly blood. It is running full speed directly at me, as it gets closer I notice there is a child on top of it, riding it like a fucking Native American warrior going to battle. I understand now that this kid is going to kill me, I start to backup, still staring at this monstrous devil dog and demon rider and before I know it, the dog is jumping the fence, everything slows down and I see the kid has disembarked his dog steed in midair, as I’m looking at the child in flight the dog rushes me and starts licking me. “You’re not so bad” I think to myself as the boy yells SSSTTTAAAABBB!! in slow motion. “YOU’RE not as nice” I think to myself of this little terrorist. As he starts to brings his dagger down to do me in, l lift my foot up, heel straight under his chin, his head snaps back and rips right off his stupid little shoulders. Little fucker never knew what hit him. After destroying that shits day, I run and try to find some place to hide, I find what looks like a staircase that goes up into an attic of one of the apartments. The attic looks like a bomb went off inside it, I figure this probably isn’t the best place to sort out my next move to get out of this place. I start to move out to find somewhere better, as I’m coming out, an older white lady, cloths tattered showing her portly body aims a gun straight at my face, I recoil and yell “please don’t shoot”! She seems as startled as me at this. She puts the gun down and helps me out of the broken room. She tells me she can help me and take me to a safe place, I follow her to the leasing office where the adults have setup a kind of triage. I walk up to a black lady standing behind the desk, I ask her what the fuck is going on, she doesn’t know. A man walks past me talking to another man, I know his voice, it’s an old friend of mine, “JD?” I ask in astonishment. “What are you doing here?” He turns around and looks at me, his face is completely gone, only his eyes and lips remain. Blood drips as he says “I was at Dons’, he’s a doctor now, he took my face” and then he just keeps on walking away. I don’t even have a clue what the fuck to say about that. As I turn back toward the lady, she grabs my right hand and jams a big piece of hypo tubing with a valve into it and starts to twist it. The pain was excruciating.

2023.03.25 23:26 VarianRydell CMV: Disliking the new Little Mermaid is not wrong

Please read in its entirety
- The constant claims that disliking the new Little Mermaid and it's trailer is racist is not only incredibly uneducated, but it amounts to nothing more than lazy propaganda.
- This is not to say that there haven't been actual racist attacks on the film and on Halle Bailey, because there absolutely have been. While I don't think Halle Bailey is completely innocent in this mess, I don't believe she deserves all the backlash. Even the non racially charged hate has often gotten out of hand. However....
There is absolutely zero evidence that even half of the general negativity to this film is inherently rooted in an inherently racist ideology. Racism is based on the belief that a race or ethnic group is inherently inferior, whether it be mentally, physically, etc, and as a result you don't like them and actively discriminate towards them and display prejudice. This is not the case 95% of the Little Mermaid haters. I shall elaborate by going over the arguments the world puts out saying other otherwise, and explaining why they don't hold up
Argument 1: It's proof that it's racism because the uproar is being directed towards a fictional character
On the surface, this makes sense. Afterall, why else would people care so much about a make-believe character's skin color if they themselves were not racists? However, slightly deeper thinking will reveal that this is an invalid argument because
A. The hypocrisy
If it's a fictional character, and it doesn't matter, why are there so many examples of stupid race-related controversies surrounding both animated and live action characters that are based on non-fact-based claims of "whitewashing". Example: After actress Naomi Scott was cast as Jasmine in the 2019 live remake of "Aladdin", people bitched and moaned about her "Skin being too light". Because there's no such thing as a person of middle eastern descent with a lighter skin tone, right?! It never occurred to all these naysayers maybe she was just the right fit for the writers vision of the character as a whole, in terms of the actual WRITING OF HER ARC??? ( And yes I'm aware that Little mermaid haters keep getting accused of not giving Disney the benefit of the doubt and assuming that Halle Bailey was just the right person for the job, and I will address that in a bit) While not all of these types of controversies can be lumped together as some are more warranted than others, this is clearly something that matters to audiences, for better or for worse. So...maybe instead of jumping to the worst and most brain dead of conclusions, actually think about or investigate why fans are reacting this way
B. How obviously biased must one not even consider the power of nostalgia
As tiresome or small this point may be, it is incredibly relevant. I continue to be baffled by how much power nostalgia holds over people, and how it deeply affects our minds in ways that can be both objectively and subjectively problematic . It affects our emotions and perceptions in so many varied and confusing ways, and when it comes to a big nostalgia factor, for many( particularly millennials), Old school Disney is as powerful as it gets. This is a big part of why I take issue with people who make fun of fans for complaining about the film, especially the red hair who are like "OOOO Halle Bailey looks fabulous, get it over it" because 9 times out of 10, I've discovered that they don't have a strong nostalgic connection to the film, if they even liked the old film at all. No kidding, a lot of those people have animosity towards the old film. Obviously, there are tons of examples of long time lovers of the movie being fine with or promoting black Ariel, and even Halle Bailey herself adored the movie as a child. But it is a pattern to notice with these labelers and accusers
It's also vital to know that the nostalgia to animation is very different from live action. Especially if you were one of probably thousands who mercilessly rewatched these beloved Disney classics, then you've perhaps become deeply familiar with and even connected with everything from certain obscure lines of dialogue or music, to specific animations sequences and images. It's not easily describable or rational, because feelings aren't rational( also, the whole point of film is to evoke, move or persuade emotion) Details of those images connect with your brain, and that is gonna include the skin color. It's just part of the iconic character design. Plus, generally, different ethnic groups have different specific variations of certain facial features. Considering that the most cosplay accurate looking white person would still look very different from a cartoon woman, changing the race changes a lot of the appearance beyond skin color. Now, there are loads of people who are not naturally that visually entranced or connected or visually observant with the world, especially with movies. Plenty of people can look beyond that type of change as long as the spirit of the character is the same, but that doesn't mean that the feelings of the film purists should be invalidated by being called names. As mentioned, we are dealing with very complicated psychology of media consumption, and so easily linking that nostalgia with one of the darkest tragedies of humanity is not only false, but it demonstrates the same lazy black and white thinking that leads to division among humanity as a whole, let alone just ethnic groups. Yes, that purist mindset often leads to toxic and regressive behavior, but if it is the unhealthy purist mindset that says it must be exactly like the original, which it IS, then, ipso facto, that would mean that this "discriminatory behavior"(AKA...disliking a movie trailer and creating a ridiculous twitter hashtag?????) is rooted in just that, a toxic purist mindset, not in a racist ideology. Saying otherwise would imply that these Little mermaid haters have something against Black people as a whole, which, again, we don't have proof of because we don't know these people personally!!! You can't attach an entire world view to these people! On that logic, anyone could get labeled anything for any reason, and there would never be any freedom of expression or speech. Again, yes, there have been documented racist comments, as well as alleged nasty comments in regards to the upcoming film. But that is not even close to enough evidence that racists make up the majority, especially when there are tons of people who have voiced actual solid reasons for not liking the film.
C. It's a ridiculous argument because if a fictional character's skin tone is important, then why should anyone feel as though it's special or significant to have a black actress playing a titular role giving all this "great representation". Not saying I don't think representing different cultures or ethnicities isn't important in the media. It absolutely is, and I'd argue it's the representation we should be seeing more of, specially a harmony and peace between different cultures. It's just odd that they talk out of both sides of their mouth. One side says "be color blind" and the other side says "representation must be prioritized above all else". More on this a bit later
D. Most of the negative commentary of the movie that is related to Ariel's skin tone is in regards to the popular opinion of this film being used to promote race in a political light. The commentary is not given in the context of the skin tone actually being "preferably undesirable" to them personally. A huge portion of the most more personal complaints of the film, especially talking about after this latest full trailer premiered at the Oscars, have been the following thundering utterances
  1. Dim, color-washed lighting and color grading
  2. Photorealistic fish doesn't work
  3. Bad underwater effects overall, like with the swimming
Speaking of the political side of things, Let's finally address that side of the conversation as we tackle the next two arguments. This where we can get some more reasons behind the dislike of the race other than just the aforementioned nostalgia
Argument 2: It must be racism because this type of backlash is always connected to projects that promote diversity
(Hmmm that's interesting. The word "promotes" implies an agenda, positive or negative. But wasn't this supposed to be a color-blind casting? Isn't color supposed to be irrelevant to a made up fish Lady)
Argument 3: Having a black Ariel is great positive representation
Though these arguments are different, they are subtextually connected enough so that my responses to them kind intercept and merge together, so I will address them as one argument
I shall first clarify that I do not believe that race swapping is inherently objectively problematic or objectively a bad artistic choice. Limiting the scope of your talent singularly on race is stupid. I believe that wholesome ethnic and racial representation is important for younger children, while constant demand for representation among adults nowadays, regardless of intent, often borders on a toxic over obsession borne out of narcissism. I also have to mention that I did find it quite moving seeing the reactions of little black girls happily noticing that the titular character resembled them.
However, there are several things to understand and remember in regards to Race Swapping
A. Characters should not be race swapped just for the sake of diversity, but because they are best role for the part
B. Race swapping is not inherently equal to good representation, even though it can be good. It's not inherently negative representation either
C. It should still be understood and respected that race swapping ( Which regardless of the constant gaslighting IS a form of erasing history) is going to be an emotional trigger for fans, and that should be acknowledged and respected, not demonized
To understand why Race Swapping is generally frowned upon and viewed as being political, we must first establish that Hollywood does
  1. pay media news outlets to write biased or false articles for damage control if a film or show doesn’t seem to being well or to clear up their image
  2. Hollywood does indeed throw social and identity politics into their products not only to reflect their own values, but to pander and/or appeal to specific audiences and social trends, only with money in mind and not ethics.
This might seem bleedingly obvious to some, but for many moviegoers, these two points are denied or called conspiracy theories.
Now this is in part to be expected. Hollywood is, well, a business. Its focus is to make money, primarily by appealing to what’s popular. However, where it becomes increasingly problematic is it comes at the expense of audience members that Hollywood highlights by insisting that they are being represented.
Coming from a black person, I can say that most of the most prominent and strongest voices of the “Haters'' club has been other African Americans, who like me, are passionate Disney fans who want to see more racially diverse characters, specifically black people, at the forefront of stories. These raceswaps culturally appropriates and rewrite European characters while rubbing in our faces that our chances for representation in Disney's animated canon will keep getting denied by patronizing us, saying that we are being given a great gift.
Let us look at the race swapping of Hermione Granger in “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”
Many people, including myself, were happy and intrigued at this new interpretation of the the classic trio, However, Hermione is canonically white, and this was at a time where JK Rowling's reliance on what was true and false in Harry potter was not at all trustworthy, which made the situation more suspicious and messy. The race Swap felt ingenuine and politically calculated
Argument 4: Changing the ethnicity shouldn’t take you out of the experience because it is a Mermaid, and mermaids are not real.
Clearly, you do not understand how immersion works. We can easily suspend our disbelief, as we know that the fictional world is different from our own as long as everything in the world is consistent. The remake is supposed to be recreating that world, which means having such a huge change will take many people out of the experience. Rationally, it is true that we can’t expect a remake to be just like the original, otherwise it would be pointless and pathetic. However, it is more than understandable and fair to have those feelings because remakes are made with audiences that the studios are literally COUNTING ON TO HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE in mind!!!!!!!!!! Of course we are going to compare the character design!
In summary, Disliking the Live action Little Mermaid is not racism, it is valid criticism, despite a few undeniable bad apples in the bunch

2023.03.25 23:25 thisisaflawedprocess I am so tired of the double standard for landlords

I am seething right now. I found out my property manager (a representative of the owner of the property) has been entering my apartment while I'm at work. I've told her that she needs to give notice, and she replied that she is allowed to enter if she suspects illegal activity (which is false, at least in Ohio). The general consensus when I ask for advice is "Have you tried politely asking her to stop breaking and entering?" and that she'll just be told to stop doing it if I pursue this.
What other class of people can just be told "Hey, you! Don't do that." when committing flagrant violations of the law? It is outlined in black and white: either a maintenance emergency or 24 hours notice is required to enter a tenant's unit. This person is on camera 3 separate times entering, with audio that shows that she is looking for someone she suspects is hiding there (there is nobody, BTW). One time she actually rifled through my belongings. Am I just supposed to live with the possibility that she took things that don't belong to her, or accessed personal information? I'm so sick of this.

2023.03.25 23:23 sclogrider Problem wiring new fixture

Replacing a bedroom lighting fixture and cannot get the new one to switch properly. Looking for help both understanding where I've gone wrong and how to get this new fixture working.
The circuit is powered in the ceiling with a normal black (hot) white (neutral) and ground - these wire test normally the black is always hot. Also in the ceiling box are wires from a dimmer wall switch (Lutron DVCL/153P). These wire include a black, white, red, and white wire marked with black tape.
I cannot for the life of me find the combination of connections that makes this work. I can wire it so it is the fixture is always on or always off but the switch position doesn't make any difference.
I've wired many simple wall and ceiling circuits but mostly in modern homes where the power typically comes into the switch. I understand the white wire with the black tape is intended to be considered as a black but this approach is new to me.
Finally, normally I would have just wired the new fixture the same as the old - unfortunately, we had a power outage while I was changing the fixture and became distracted. Little did I know...
Thanks for any advice
