Official Discussion: The 15:17 to Paris [SPOILERS] by GetFreeCash in movies

[–]TheMentalist10 11 points12 points  (0 children)

My friend leant over about twenty minutes in (probably after something unforgivable like “My God is bigger than your statistics”) and said “Is this Clint Eastwood’s The Room?”

Then we’re introduced to characters called Mark and Lisa. It all adds up.

A legion of Tom Hankses could not have saved this film.

I’m in your position and waiting for the next sale (maybe Valentine’s?) to pull the trigger on buying one.

What a preposterous assessment of the Rwandan genocide. Read a book.

That is sad, but given that the person who made the comment made up those circumstances it's a little difficult to take them seriously.

I think (most) good parents understand that children will never be as appreciative of them as they probably ought to be. They, in turn, probably weren't appreciative enough of their own, after all.

Fair enough. I've provided a better way for you to go about helping, as this entire comment chain has added very little.

Is this racism or not? by FrannyFeet in unitedkingdom

[–]TheMentalist10 87 points88 points  (0 children)

I'm going to disagree with a lot of the other comments here, and I'm surprised by the consensus that this is 'just' stupidity and not racism. It can be, and usually is, both.

They're treating you differently because of your race. Regardless of whether that manifests itself as a form of mild interest, 'fascination in the Other', or in violent behaviour, the fact remains that their behaviour towards you is different because of how they think about (or, more likely, do not think about) race.

Like /u/develeaper said, this probably isn't the best subreddit to get much in the way of useful discussion on this kind of issue. The likelihood is that it skews heavily towards white men, myself included. But with regards to this part of your post:

I’m a really shy, quiet person, even my voice is a quiet whisper so I’m not loud or obnoxious but I can’t seem to avoid these race related situations while at university.

I read on the internet that racism usually affects women who are not attractive - do you think my (lack of) attractiveness is what is leading to all these situations? (To be honest, my friend and my sister who haven’t experienced this are more attractive than I am - other people have said so in the past). But I’m not sure to what extent I am able to change my appearance or demeanour to avoid this?

Please don't think that how people behave towards you in this way is any reflection on you. It's ignorance, it's an expression of ingrained prejudice, and I really hate to to see that it leaves you questioning aspects of your own value as a person. It's not you that needs to change here!

This is total nonsense. Rather than discouraging content, why not spend a couple of minutes learning how to search.

If you have a problem with this kind of post (or the OP), take it up with the mods.

Single father of 3 in England, being vegan affordable? by jdonovan36 in veganrecipes

Adding on to what other have said, I've found the transition has saved me a significant amount of money. I can do my weekly, essentials food shop for ~£12, which is for lunches and dinners. I cook huge meals a couple of times a week, and then put leftovers in the fridge for lunches / dinners on nights I don't fancy the hassle.
