    Why am I awkward with people?

    Any time I have to interact with people who aren’t direct family or my closest friends (I only have a few of those), I freeze up. Like, I just don’t know what to do around people.

    Any time I have to interact with people who aren’t direct family or my closest friends (I only have a few of those), I freeze up. Like, I just don’t know what to do around people. For example, my parents have my neighbors over in the backyard right now with the back door open and I was in the kitchen (where the back door is). One of the neighbors saw me and started talking to me, and I pretend not to hear her. When she looked over though and made eye contact with me, I just smiled the most awkward smile and BOLTED out of the kitchen. Why am I like this? I thought it was social anxiety for the longest time, but combined with my lack of empathy around others and general inability (And lack of desire) to communicate with strangers, could it be something else?

    Why do black people complain so much?

    Y'all have affirmative action for god's sake! There's plenty of whites that face police brutality. Yes what that cop did was wrong but not everything has to be thought of through the lens of race. Life is hard for EVERYONE REGARDLESS OF RACE!!!

    I Am So Depressed that I'm Not an Actress. What Should I Do?

    I am suffering from extreme depression due to being 23 and not being an actress, on a TV show, or having a glamorous career. The sad thing is, I'm SUFFERING.

    I am suffering from extreme depression due to being 23 and not being an actress, on a TV show, or having a glamorous career. The sad thing is, I'm SUFFERING. I had anxiety in college and could never force myself to go to auditions or study journalism like I want to. Now I'm in a boring, horrible career and I can't help but wish I pushed myself so that I could be doing something glamorous like being on a TV show or being a TV news reporter. Could I still pursue acting or TV news reporting from scratch at age 23? Every single time a reporter or actress comes on my screen, I feel inferior because I'm just a nobody in the audience, when I want that spotlight.

    Why are Democrats ignoring Biden's anti-black racism?

    Best answer: Dems aren't ignoring it. They think it was stupid. Biden said something incredibly stupid. If you talk to any Dem they would all say that what he said was wrong and really stupid. Biden didn't mock black people. It's closer to cultural appropriation but it's not that either. It's more like... show more
    Best answer: Dems aren't ignoring it. They think it was stupid. Biden said something incredibly stupid. If you talk to any Dem they would all say that what he said was wrong and really stupid.

    Biden didn't mock black people. It's closer to cultural appropriation but it's not that either. It's more like watching a lame dad trying and use slang to fit in with the teenagers but incredibly racially insensitive. That's was flat out ignorance. It might look like ignoring but  Biden apologized, he didn't try to justify to say he did nothing wrong. Biden admitted he was wrong. He said something really stupid then gave a public apology. What you're witnessing is forgiveness. 

    Trump on the other hand, would have insisted he did nothing wrong and would have tried to say everything possible to justify he's right. Then his supporters would back him by repeating his talking points.

    Trump is perceived as racist because he is very racially insensitive. He refers to black people as 'the blacks.' When he was attacked by a White American holding flag at one of his campaign rallies he thought it was a jihadist. He prefers people from Switzerland coming here than people from Haiti or African countries he called **** hole countries. WHO named the Coronavirus CoVid19 to avoid stigma sticking to any place or race and Trump undid all that when he called it the Chinese Flu while hate crimes of Asian Americans were on the rise. during his campaign trail he said the internment camps for the Japanese Americans were necessary. He said the Mexicans were bringing Drugs and rape during the campaign trail. (We actually grow much more potent weed here than they do in Mexico, Mexican migrants have way fewer crime than actual Americans here) If people complained about the Mexicans taking our jobs, they took Jobs Americans didn't want to do and they never complain about the Canadians. The Canadians overstay their visas the most out of everyone else that come here and they take the jobs Americans do want.
    I don't know if you agree with him. But all of this put together looks like all a person is to Trump is what they look like on the outside. referring to people as 'the blacks' makes it look like he doesn't see people of color as people.


    To be fair, I do think there is a difference between racist and racially insensitive. But it can be a fine line. Those who are POC deal with it so often, they forgive a lot to a certain point because we deal with it on a regular basis. Biden's insensitivity is in that range where it can be forgiven because it's genuine stupidity not intending malice. I've had co-workers like Biden where they mean well but they're just not sensitive enough. He's like the white teacher from Fresh Prince of Bel Aire. He's trying to be in with the black community but he doesn't get it. His actions actually alienate the black community but gets forgiven because he doesn't know better and means well.

     Trump has crossed the offensive line so many times he's easily viewed as a racist. Trump calling the virus the Chinese Flu was malice towards China but it gives a license towards his supporters participating in hate crimes of the Asian Americans here. Calling African nations, ****-hole country is not coming from a place of good intention. When he said that, he was just looking at a person's skin color and not their action. You might not agree but I'm trying to explain the pov of those who have been offended by Trump's comments and how it is different from Biden.

    Long story short. I was tricked into caregiver for grandma and I cannot do it anymore.I have been doing it for almost a year. She lies and tries to set me up where I can into legal trouble. She makes herself fall when she can walk and she keeps me up all night on purpose. Family doesn't want to help but only judge. It is messing with my health physically and mentally.  I feel weak and dizzy all the time. I am depressed and anxiety. The problem is no one wants to help and deal with her and tell me I can't just leave her and she can't live alone. She refuses nursing home and I don't know what to do but I need to leave before she is successful in setting me up like the time she made herself fell on purpose and tried to tell EMS that it was my fault but it was on video

    Is my step dad toxic?

    Best answer: Hi, yes this is abusive behaviour. Be very careful. A man acting this way has no regard for women and may become physically violent. He may have a desire to put others down to boost his own ego, or he may despise weakness in others because he was bullied himself, maybe he wasn’t loved enough as a child, whatever... show more
    Best answer: Hi, yes this is abusive behaviour. Be very careful. A man acting this way has no regard for women and may become physically violent. He may have a desire to put others down to boost his own ego, or he may despise weakness in others because he was bullied himself, maybe he wasn’t loved enough as a child, whatever the reason he has no right to take it out on you. 
    I strongly recommend buying a cheap, small, payg phone with long battery life, and hiding it very carefully, in case you need to call for help. He may search your room so hide it well. Save the numbers you need on it, and make sure friends know that number if you call them, but leave it off and on silent so it’s always charged. 
    Also, make sure you can barricade yourself inside your room with a chair, etc, if necessary. Look on YouTube to see how to do it.
    A can of pepper spray is also worthwhile, if it comes to that. 
     Tell trusted friends about this situation and a teacher too. 
    Be aware that the teacher will probably want to talk to your mother, so you need to talk to her about this first. 
    She may have low self esteem and attract bullies, but you need to show her that together you can live without him. 
    Talk to a Women’s refuge service or charity, in your area. They’ll be the experts on what resources are near you and what to do and where to go if it gets worse. Don’t confront him or antagonise him without a plan of what to do if he becomes physical. 
    Maybe you’re worried that your mother won’t want anyone to know about it and she’ll be angry with you if she knows you’ve talked to people, but she’s putting both of you at risk by staying with him. Your  emotional development and self esteem is being damaged by this home environment and either someone needs to force your step father to change his behaviour, or he needs to be kept away.
    Finally, this probably won’t be the only a**hole you meet in life. Sadly there are lots of them, male and female. It’s a very good idea to do two things: 1) look at ‘non violent communication’ by Marshall Rosenberg to understand human behaviour and how to change it, and 2) practise self defense, know how to protect yourself, recognise danger and ‘create space’ between you and an attacker so you can get away. Ask a local women’s group about that. (If you’re in a rural area you might not have those resources locally so you’ll have to go online. In which case buy a phone online and have it sent to a friend’s house. If you can’t afford one, ask if a friend has an old one.)
    Good luck, and remember, even though this guy treats you like crap, you have an absolute right to expect respect and kindness.
     Learn from your mother’s mistakes and avoid them.

    Is it really true that the US is about to reach 100,000 Coronavirus deaths while Donald Trump is playing golf?

    Best answer: The only people trump cares about right now are the people who he thinks will vote for him. If he's reelected he will have no use for them. Fortunately the vast majority of voters are tired of his foolishness and incompetence and he will be voted out in November.
