There is something about being constantly bashed over the head with racism as an issue that makes me extremely uncomfortable around my black neighbors and classmates. Granted, I am extremely uncomfortable around everyone, but it is kind of annoying how everywhere I go I must be constantly reminded that because I am white and male, I am the latent enemy of virtually everyone who isn't.

There is no way for me to prove that I don't harbor prejudices against a particular group of people, and any attempt to explain myself only makes it apparent to everyone that I have some kind of problem, and therefore must be a racist. This is a bit of a dilemma.

It's the same way with women, who I can't talk to without them assuming I have some secret intent to rape and dismember them. I can't talk to a person of color without them knowing I might actually be out to get them, especially now that actual racists are out and proud these days. It's like no matter what I do, I am made to be some kind of predator that can't be trusted. So the best sort of behavior I can hope to perform is to keep my head down, and not speak to or look at anyone, and mind my own business. I really wish that I could just be a person, without having all kinds of labels attached.

I am guilty of the same kind of judgment, though. I assume that white people I see in public are ignorant honkies, and most of them probably are. When I worked for all those years at Wal-Mart as a cashier, it was older white people who made me more uncomfortable than anyone else, as they are the ones I perceive to be the most judgmental. So I don't really know what I'm trying to say here. It doesn't matter if a person is black or white, male or female, young or old. There will always be some reason I am feared and hated by them. There will never be a way to prove I'm not latently dangerous or hostile. I am a creep, and a weirdo. I don't belong here. I don't belong anywhere. I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

When I first got to boot camp the company commander sat us down and told us that there was only two ways to react to any situation in life: Laugh or cry. Then he made us run for half an hour with our duffle bags to drive the point home. It doesn't matter if you complain or joke about it, it already happened.

Whenever someone complained about something sucking, he'd tell them "This doesn't suck. I'll tell you when something sucks." So after a few months of that we grew the balls to ask him "Okay, so what does suck?" which he said "One armed mountain climber with jock itch." Kind of makes running three miles seem less horrible.

If you live a life without harboring prejudices or trying to creep on people, it pretty much takes care of itself. I've made it this far without being accused of being a racist or getting pepper sprayed to stop me from raping them.

Stop whining about being a white male.

This is what I mean. I have no problems because I belong to x group. Everything is sunshine and rainbows so long as I hold this shiny label over my head. I'm so privileged and ought to be perfectly content because of some incredibly trivial and meaningless detail. This small and unimportant detail has somehow become a mountain of contrived importance. It is tiring.

Yeah, no one said that. I didn't say "stop whining because you're a white male (so you don't have problems)", I said "stop whining about being a white male".

But you probably couldn't hear me well from way up there on your cross Smiley: rolleyes

So I've been procession what you just said for several minutes now, and I'm not finding much of a difference between these two statements.

Either way, I think what is happening is some kind of paranoia on my part. I can't possibly know what other people are thinking, but I feel like I must assume I am making my neighbor uncomfortable every time I step out of my apartment to go somewhere and he is outside smoking his cigarette because the world has conditioned him to distrust me. So I peer through the eye hole in my door until he has gone back inside before I leave. I realize it's probably not a big deal to him if I am there or not, but I don't want to inconvenience him. It just feels bad. I wish I could be neutral somehow-- that I did not have to be a part of "team white guy." It is completely out of my control.

They aren't put off because you are white. They are put of because you are being creepy. So either stop that, or be more attractive.

Being white is awesome. Literally yesterday I was just walking around and three beautiful women came up to me and begged to suck my **** because I am white, and when they were done they left a big sack of cash on the alligator. It took hours to wash all the lipstick off my body.

Wait, no, we were talking about you. Sorry, let me get back on topic. Kuwoobie. Don't let anyone make you feel ashamed of being white. In fact, if anything, you should become a white supremacist. It's basically part of the narrative for your personality type, anyway, so no-one will hold it against you too much. It will give you a sense of purpose, belonging, and maybe some self confidence.

Sadly, they become uglier instead. --not ugly in a physical way(wait actually they kind of do), but ugly like they won't rest until the whole internet knows what an awful, awful person you are for daring to criticize them and, somehow by proxy, their entire demographic.

I think that you would be better off if you followed my advice.

Although, Kavekk's idea of going the untermensch race realist does have some merit.

Well, according to Kuwoobie, they whine and cry about how mean you are to them which sounds about right.

Then they join alt-right MRA groups and blame women for all their problems.

I have literally no idea what you're trying to say. I guess because you're trying to be cute with an edited quote but I have no clue what the original text is supposed to be in response to.

Well. Have you ever been divorced? Has anyone here? It is to my understanding that nearly every experiences it at some point or another.

My wife seems to think everything will be fine once we move to the other side of the state and starts working days. I think it's too late, but I have said nothing yet. She must know she is kidding herself. I'm probably just going to stay here when she moves. It is probably going to be the hardest thing I've ever had to do, and probably the worst possible timing. It will only become worse the more I wait, though, so it's not quite the worst possible timing. I'm nowhere near finished with school, though.

I don't know anything about anything. My biggest concern is how it might effect our son, and child support. I don't know anything at all.

Nope. I had a long term, live-in relationship including a child that ended but we (thankfully) had not yet married.

Yep.

Are you and the missus fighting? Yelling at each other? Is it a dangerous or unhealthy environment for you kid?

If the answer is yes, then get out.

If the answer is no I suggest moving with her, transfer your classes, finish school, be a great dad and make the best of the relationship.


But whatever, I don't know you well enough to give any other advice.

No. It has never been like that. But then, I think even that would be better. Even that is better than nothing at all.

I really think this is my year of twilight. Barring some kind of miracle, I don't see any kind of life or future beyond this point. What you are saying is pretty much confirmation of this.

May I suggest maybe *not* making a massive life changing (for more people than just you) decision without thinking through the ramifications? It just seems like this entire thread is about the fact that you're unhappy with your life and doing things trying to fix that, but none of them make you any happier. That's the pattern, right? I guess what I'm saying here is that if you're going to be miserable whether you divorce your wife or not, then why do it? And everything I've seen you post so far suggests that's going to be the case. She isn't the cause of your unhappiness. Your child (children? I thought you each had one or something) isn't the cause of your unhappiness. So you're basically changing things that aren't the problem.

I can't tell you what the problem is, but I can tell you that pushing away other people isn't going to help one bit. It's your choice, of course, but that's just my opinion.
