    I was born a fighter, but I'm just about done with this country. The homophobia, the racism, the Jersey Shore, the list goes on.

    I'm interviewing with a firm in the Netherlands in a couple weeks and would seriously consider moving for the right offer.

    PLEASE give me some hope that it'll actually "get better" soon. Not someday, but soon...really, really soon....

    Don't give up hope.
    By the time the next election rolls around, the economy will have fully recovered from the Bush recession, jobs will have returned, and Obama will coast to any easy reelection.
    While the teabag Republicans eat their hearts out.

    Isn't that something to look forward to?!

    I know exactly what you are talking about.

    But don't leave.

    Best alternative is to travel, travel travel around the world to think outside of thr "American" lunacy.

    Then you can come back home and laugh at the idiocy that passes as intelligence nonsense and lighten up.icon_biggrin.gif

    Then again......take the job and have fun and learn.....but eventually come home. We need people like you. Believe it or not, despite the sad bull you read and hear everyday from different places, including RJ........there are others like you who live, enjoy (but struggle) to live a better life.

    I'm with KissingPro, you're needed. And I'm with the Pro on this too, that you should go and experience what the world has to offer. I have a feeling they're going to love you in Holland.

    Well you cant expect everything to be perfect in America. Its a young country about only 200 years old! You cant expect all these problems to be solved like most other well developed nation. Also, Jersey Shore is awesome! Racism is exhibited everywhere in the world and homophobia!

    Nothing like a black guy fed up with racism etc getting slapped by a couple of white guys who mock his upset and his tentative decision to go away for awhile.

    It makes it easier to see why he'd want to leave.

    I happen to love jersey shore, and just so u know that shit is standard fair in a lot of english speaking countries, so its not just the US it appeals to. I have friends in Australia who never miss an episode. . .


    as far as u being too good for this country, then by all means, leave.

    U think Europe is gonna look any more kindly on ur black ass?
    No offense, but europeans are just as racist, if not more so. So, time to step off ur high horse and come back down to reality, cuz you'll never be a european no matter how hard u try....no matter what u do, you'll never be european...


    so cheers for america icon_smile.gif

    lol, Import, just where did he say he was too good for this country?

    He didn't. Your big beef seems to be that he doesn't like your favorite sit-com. You get all mad over that? Srsly?

    As for racism in Europe, in the US it's an art form.

    the OP is probably all like "omg, europeans are like soo progressive and like we get eachother, they're so smart and liberal, and educated. Americans are so stupid and religious and dumb, like a bunch of racist homophobes, ugh!"

    *sips wine

    "im so glad im european now, I can finally be who i've always wanted to be, a stupid fucking black american living in europe pretending to be educated and cultured because I have internet access and went to a museum"


    hunni, sorry, but u cant buy class. icon_rolleyes.gif

    *sighs* Import said, "the OP is probably...."

    You're slapping him around because you're thinking he 'probably' is this and that.

    That's pretty lousy, and untrue.

    but its probably true. I'm usually right on about that stuff. .


    besides, im sure the OP can defend himself without u sticking up for him, as i bet u know a whole lot about the OP's plight as a white male, I'm sure u identify with his struggles Photobucket

    Import, my lineage is Jamaican, I'm not white and am a Canadian citizen living in BC. Your 'probably' mechanism is not working well.

    Please take DoomedAlpaca with you. He absolutely hates every single minute of his life here in the homophobic, racist, corporate-controlled USA.


    Wow, what was the point of bringing me up?

    Oh...must be because we are both black and outspoken about the issues in this country.

    No, it's about to get a lot worse. Now is the time to consider leaving.
