Trying to improve race relations

2021.12.03 01:22 metasadhu Trying to improve race relations

Indian immigrant that recently moved to Bay area from east coast college town. The college town I studied is part of the bible belt and I would see Trump 2020 and confederate flags a lot. However most people I bumped into there were extremely nice and never looked down on me. I was welcome into houses, parties and friend groups by americans. Bay area ,on the other hand, which is in California the capital of inclusivity does not give me the same vibe. Many people here look down on Indians and want to keep a distance from you. They are polite because theyre supposed to be polite but thats about it. I have seen the same thing with other Indians and Asian immigrants too so its not just me.
Even when i go out i almost never see multiracial groups. Can anyone explain this ? Why this dissonance in public perception and personal experience ? Is it because southwest Virginia has to overcompensate and California has too many Indians ?
Don’t mean to trigger anyone. I truly want to understand ✌️

During Hogwarts they all go to hogsmeade and in the ride over Draco can tell that hermione needs some “relief” and puts his knee in between her legs and after says something like helping a witch in need and no one else noticed what happened between the two

2021.12.03 01:22 TheAnswerWithinUs Why does no one have bios anymore?

Like cmon at least give me some conversation points. It’s like no one is even trying anymore. Almost every profile I swipe on has no bio, only a few pics.
Especially when a lot of the matches I get are dry as fuck like you need to have at least something in your bio so I have something to try keep the conversation going with.

2021.12.03 01:22 SpiritLamp304 HI MODS! I can see why my drill post wasn't removed :)

HI MODS! I can see why my drill post wasn't removed :) Yeah so there's no mods active, the place is basically full of 9 year olds (which aren't allowed on reddit due to age restrictions), I really urge anyone to join the drillvolution to give the final nudge this subreddit needs to fall off the cliff that it was already going to fall off of in the first place.
Just see my other post and let's have a good time ending this subreddit's suffering!
(also our revolution will address many issues with this subreddit including the path of the drill)
also just in case the mod's wake up, here's a picture of the drill so that it's technically dani related.

we will rise

2021.12.03 01:22 Key_Statistician_546 Final 4 Spoiler this season

Some of you may have noticed, but Project Runway gave spoilers about the top four in the trailer. It is certain that all four of the top four are women, and one of them is Chasity . I think the other three are Anna, Coral, and>! Christina!<. But I'm not sure if the second woman is Coral or Shantall. Obviously, the top four of this season are all women. We'll be able to meet the female winner after the erin of season 15.

Anyone here know when the review embargo is going to be lifted. 343 has been pretty mum about the campaign, and even the launch trailer reused the 10 mins we had already seen in the past 2 years.

2021.12.03 01:22 Phoen3tix [For Sale] Motley Crue- Too Fast For Love Japanese Bootlegs! Leathur Mixes!

Hello all! I have a few Japanese bootleg copies of Crue's debut with the Leathur mix. To keep a long story short, my 10 year old Cocker Spaniel, Oreo, has taken a downturn in health so I'm selling these to make sure I can continue to get him the care he needs and keep him comfortable. These will all ship from Ohio with tracking and insurance; a required signature can be added if you'd like. Please PM me for international shipments- it's been a little while since I've done them and I don't have those rates memorized anymore.
I've been selling on eBay and Discogs for a few years under the same name; here is my Discogs profile link and here is the eBay link. I take payment through PayPal Goods and Services. Feel free to ask for additional photos or information. Thank you!
Price for each record is $300; Price for the CD is $150.
Too Fast For Love- Copy One Pictures NM/VG+ Record has no noticeable marks and plays without surface noise. The sleeve has approximately a one inch split on the top center seam. There is a small discoloration on the Side One Label. Comes with a paper inner sleeve.
Too Fast For Love- Copy Two Pictures VG+/VG+ Again, record has no noticeable marks and plays without surface noise. There are spots of discoloration on the upper right corner of the rear sleeve. Similar discoloration marks are on both center labels. Comes with a poly inner sleeve.
Both of these are the same release. I've played these against my second pressing, and I'm pretty hard pressed to find the differences between them musically. The music is still loud and dynamic.
Too Fast For Love CD Pictures The CD has no hairlines and plays without any issues. The booklet is a single fold, with the cover photo on the front and lyrics on the reverse. The inside of the booklet is blank; it's printed on heavy semi-gloss cardstock. There seems to be a bit of debate over on Discogs about the legitimacy of this release, and to be frank, there isn't enough to say that it definitively is. This is more than likely a Japanese bootleg pressed on a silver CD and done very well. Discogs Page

2021.12.03 01:22 futurelullabies Cold chills with fever

Currently shivering my ass off because I lost another 10 lbs I probably needed and I’ve got another low grade fever. And I’m still sweating, despite shivering like a little chihuahua under a heavy comforter.
What helps the fever chills besides Tylenol? I think if I take any more I won’t have a liver anymore.
My face and gums are unusually pale so I took iron pills even though they destroy my stomach and appetite but better than being completely freezing by ignoring my anemia.

2021.12.03 01:22 KerosceneEra Crappy eyesight and painting

Is there anyone else here who has bad eyes but is trying to get better at painting? I’m young but have a vision problem that I can only ameliorate a little bit with reading glasses while painting. I am currently on the stage of learning to paint eyes but it’s incredibly frustrating and having a disability makes it a bit demoralizing. Does everyone run into serious setbacks when they first paint fine detail like that? Part of it seems like my “fine detail” brush isn’t small enough but part of it is me having to squint.

2021.12.03 01:22 Lonely-Recognition-8 Plane ticket fuckery

So I fucked up. I bought two plane tickets for a trip with my friend, Olivia (fake name). And we got in a fight but I told her I still want her to come on this trip with me and to let me know if she’s still willing to come. I waited two days for a response and got nothing so with the assumption that she wasn’t coming, so I invited another friend instead…. Two hours after inviting the other friend, I call olivia to let her know that I’m canceling her ticket… we end up working things out instead and she tells me she wants to come but just needed time to think about our friendship and what to say to me. SO NOW I HAVE TWO FRIENDS WHO THINK THEYRE GOING AND I CAN ONLY CHOOSE ONE. And idk how to tell whichever one I don’t choose that they can’t come. Please help me. Should I just tell them both the truth ? I love them both equally and wouldn’t want to hurt either of them!

2021.12.03 01:22 thepastperfect r/Neopets Secret Santa 2021: Matches Are Out/Share Your Gifts

Announcement Post - Introduction and Sign-Ups - Sign-Up Reminder - Matches Are Out/Share Your Gifts - Last Days to Gift Reminder - Main Round Gifting is Over - Reveal Thread and Wrap-Up
Matches are out! If you signed up for one or both of the Neopets Secret Santa exchanges, you should have received a PM on Reddit with the name of your giftee. If you signed up and have not received a match, please PM one of the organizers (u/thepastperfect, u/roxychalk, or u/DizzyOdd for Gifts Kringle, u/ThisIsDivi for Secret SantART) ASAP.
Now it's time to start buying, sending, and making your gifts! These should be delivered any time between now and Sunday, December 19, by 11:59 p.m. NST. Gifts Kringle participants should send gifts directly to their Santee on-site. Please remember to allow Neomails and clear your inbox on Neo, so you and your Santa/Santee can chat. Secret SantART participants should link their gifts to their Santee AND to u/ThisIsDivi via Reddit PM.
Don't forget to thank your Secret Santa!
This is also the place where you can share the gifts you've received or sent so far! You can discuss your Gifts Kringle and Secret SantART gifts in this post. If you just want to share in the general merriment of the holiday season, that's cool too. If you prefer to chat on Discord, come visit our #holidays channel.
Reminder: Do not, under any circumstances, mention Neopets, Discord, Reddit, Secret Santa, Kris Kringle, etc. on Neopets.com. We cannot stress this enough! If you send a Neomail, feel free to call it a "Christmas/holiday gift," which is fine to mention. If you receive a Neomail mentioning any disallowed words/phrases, block the user, delete the Neomail, and let one of us know their username so we can check to see if they're a registered participant and get you a new Santa, if necessary.
We've said this multiple times in multiple years, but please think before you write a NM. If your giftee included their Reddit and/or Discord username in their sign-up, you can always message them there. That way you don't have to worry about it and you can even say "damn" and "shit" and "document" in your messages (don't worry, we won't tell TNT).
Some friendlier reminders for Gifts Kringle: Please keep your inventory below 50 items (so you have room to receive your gifts) and remember to check the site, Neomail, and your notifications or item event log regularly. Gifts that are not accepted within 48 hours will be returned to sender.
We ask that you set your Neopets preferences to accept Neomails from everyone, in case your Santa or your Santee is trying to contact you. (If you normally have your Neomail set to Neofriends-only, you can switch it back after the event is over.) If you allowed your giftee to see your Reddit/Discord usernames, check there for messages as well.
If you haven't received or sent anything so far, don't panic! All participants in the main round need to send at least one gift by Sunday, December 19 at 11:59 p.m. NST. (You are welcome to continue creating or sending more gifts after this date, so long as you send something by December 19.) If you don't, your giftee will be rematched with a backup Santa and you'll be blacklisted from Secret Santa for the rest of eternity or until the organizers forget about your naughty behavior (but that will never happen because u/thepastperfect is a champion grudge-holder).
A few common questions: What if I didn't get a PM with my giftee's name?

Please contact one of the organizers asap. Matches have been assigned for both Gifts Kringle and Secret SantART, so nobody should be waiting on a match at this point.
When should I start drawing/creating/gifting?
You can start now! At least one gift must be sent by December 19, and it's a good idea to get going early in case you get artist's block, your giftee is away, or something goes wrong. You can gift bomb your recipient now, you can keep them on edge and waiting until 11:58 p.m. NST on December 19, or you could sprinkle gifts around like glitter ew, don't do this, no one likes glitter.
What should I get my giftee for Gifts Kringle?
If you're lucky, your giftee included some info about their interests (on-site or off-) and a wishlist. If you're not lucky, u/ThisIsDivi wrote up a really good list of ideas for finding out more about your giftee/what they're into here. You can also ask here for suggestions/ideas. If you're completely stuck, some safe bets are holiday-related items; gambling items like Neocola tokens, scratchcards, and Nerkmids; and anything easy to sell, like codestones.
How much should I spend for Gifts Kringle?
Only as much as you're comfortable spending! It's the thought that counts, and participants should not bankrupt themselves for this. But if you want to bankrupt yourself, we certainly won't stop you. Also, you should not feel pressured into buying NC/trading for NC items for your giftee -- spending real money is always optional on Neo, and that is not something that should be expected during this exchange.
What if my giftee doesn't accept the on-site gifts within 48 hours?
If your giftee doesn't accept the items, they'll be returned to your account after 48 hours and you'll get an NM. We ask that you send your giftee a NM and attempt to send the gifts at least one more time -- your giftee may have been busy, not online, or accidentally cleared the notification and not seen the items. If they don't reply to your NM and/or the gifts time out again, you can message them here if they shared their username. If they didn't, please reach out to one of the organizers and we'll get in touch on your behalf.
Can I mention Reddit, Discord, Neocord, I Read It, Secret Santa, Secret SantART, Kris Kringle, Gifts Kringle, Orange Alien Secret Gift Exchange, etc. in my NM?
No. Mentions of Neopets, Reddit, Discord, and related words/phrases are not permitted on Neo. Please don't try to come up with creative ways to get around it, or else you'll a) put your Neo account at risk, b) worry your giftee, c) annoy the organizers, and d) run the risk of getting yourself banned from Neopets Secret Santa in the future.
What if I can't contact my giftee via Neomail?
If your giftee's Neomail inbox is full, try sending a Foal in Box. If their inventory is also full, wait a few hours and try again, or you can send a Battledome challenge and use the comments section to ask them to clear their inbox. If your giftee isn't accepting Neomails but shared their Reddit and/or Discord username, try contacting them that way.
If you are still unable to contact your giftee via any of those methods, message an organizer and we will get in touch with them via Reddit/Discord on your behalf.
What if my giftee mentions Reddit, Discord, Secret Santa, etc. on-site?
Do not respond to the message. Block the user, delete the Neomail, and let one of the organizers know their username. We will check to see if they're a registered participant and ban them, if necessary.
What you do with the gifts is up to you -- you can accept them, but you can also reject them if you feel uncomfortable about it.

2021.12.03 01:22 micawberesque Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart

This can be interpreted in two ways: God will give you what you desire, or, when your delight is God Himself, He will put into your heart desires for those things which He wants to give you. I prefer the latter. Jives with my own experience. Only when God is your delight, purpose, reason, can anything else have it's proper place. Otherwise, the other things become your god. For example, a spouse, a career, a hobby, etc., can all become idols. What's an idol? Whatever you live for, and serve.

Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. - 1 John 5:21 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1John5:21&version=NKJV
Excluding God, the right attitude is "that would be cool, maybe, but if it never happens, that's okay, because whatever God wants for me is what's best for me".
Not my will but Your will be done! Who said that? The Person who is our example.
You will fret so much less when you understand that God's will will be done. Praying about a thing nonstop won't change His will either.
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. - 1 John 5:14-15 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1John5:14-15&version=NKJV
Many say God is all powerful but how many actually believe it? If you do believe it, then why worry? Pray, but more importantly keep your eyes and ears open. He will guide you into the answer.
