  1. What are the raw onions for? Is that garnish? The onions on that plate just really set me off. What is the point of them?!
  2. Yeah it is mandatory for diversity requirements - the other class was full (Women's psych). It was an interesting class, but I actually was better off before I took it. Yeah hold on I'll post a model which I think about a lot.. ...... added to this post 25 minutes later: Okay this is what is called the Nigrescence model which literally means 'to become black.' It's been adapted a few times but I will talk about the original one by William Cross. There are 5 stages in this model - and the black person can cycle through them or be stuck at one specific stage indefinitely. I'm going to explain it how it was explained to me. It's sort of an oversimplification. Pre-encounter - the person is unaware of their blackness - I was told to imagine Stacey Dash or some other 'whitewashed' person Encounter - the person becomes aware of their blackness - due to an event - such as being pulled over simply for being black Immersion/Emersion - is being immersed in blackness - the example I was told was a student attending a historically black college, being immersed in black culture, and it is as if no other race exists - they don't matter - this part includes disparaging white culture - seeking to avoid white things - and exclusion of nonblacks in activities Internalization - this stage marks where the person is comfortable with who they are and they can rejoin society and begin to foster relationships with other races Internalization-Commitment - the highest stage, this is where the person is comfortable with their own identity and accepts nonblack people - and is able to empathize with other groups for political and social justice Someone could be stuck in the pre-encounter stage for several years. Someone could be in the final stage, then revert back to immersion/emersion, etc. you get it. So, given that I live next to an HBCU and many of my neighbors attend there - I have always guessed that some of them are probably in the immersion/emersion stage. Which is wrong of me to guess, of course. This class was particularly interesting because I haven't had to take a class about black people, and black people only, before. I did learn a lot. But I am affected by a lot of the topics of discussion that occurred in the class - mostly because it was 'filterless.' But it was made very, very clear in that class that the majority of blacks in that class do not approve of interracial dating. It was also made very clear that something as benign as hair clips being worn by a white woman was cultural appropriation. I also learned that many black social workers do not approve of black children being adopted by white families - and a lot of other things I never thought were issues. A lot of things I thought well shit, race relations in America are pretty good - no apparently not so. Also the class was during the Trump election so that amped it up quite a bit. Oh, something really valuable I got out of this class - there were some studies done where the participants were to rate the competence of people by race - long story short, people rated black people higher during certain tasks simply because they were black - I'll look for the studies, but the end result is that they were rated higher than their peers because of low standards for excellence for black people that the observers had. Lowered expectations if you will. In short, an application of this would be if you had a black waiter vs. a white waiter - they both treat you the same way, but when asked, you might say the black waiter was better - when in fact, they did the exact same thing the white waiter did. But since unconsciously people might think low of black people, they will try to overcompensate for it by saying they did an excellent job and go above and beyond with their compliments - this is a form of racism - can't remember which type, but it is. If I were a black person on the receiving end of overexaggerated compliments I would feel insulted. ...... added to this post 36 minutes later: Yeah that was pretty dumb of me to say, wasn't it?
  3. lmfao ...... added to this post 0 minutes later: the fucking gem of this thread
  4. Me too. 50 - 4000 Hz is the most important range for speech processing. Eh so to hell with the rest of it.
  5. Yeah that's a good point - my fixation on race seems to stem from things I learned in an African American psychology class. ...... added to this post 4 minutes later: How do you define racist?
  6. Not a fan of hairy legs on men. I also don't like leg tattoos on men.
  7. Okay I specified that I live in Florida that should have cued you in that I'm talking about black African American North Floridian culture. 😂 ...... added to this post 0 minutes later: Sorry I didn't spell that out in the thread title!
  8. He is not a comedian that I care for. I have not found the majority of his jokes to be funny. He was a crass and crockety old man.
  9. Very strong possibility. ...... added to this post 1 minute later: Actually yeah that sounds right.
  10. People are worth my time if I can learn something from them or enjoy their company
  11. I think namechanges are a couple hundred bucks but it'll be worth it.
  12. Damn that looks fresh out of a food magazine
  13. Yeah I was ultra lit last night I also third that motion. ...... added to this post 6 minutes later: Oh fuck that is so hilarious although a bit embarrassing
  14. I'm gonna go tomorrow and ask him if he has any weed
  15. I use my calendar app on my phone. I also tape up index cards on my door for important things. I usually do what I have to do the second it needs to be done or else I will forget. I used to be a big procrastinator but i missed a few opportunities because of it. So after sulking about missed opportunities which was my fault - i decided to get my shit together. But I think I went too far because I am sort of robotic now. For example, I have a piece of mail that is addressed and stamped already with the paperwork inside that is to be mailed in September. It is taped on my door so I don't forget to mail it in September. For school I write 2 papers a week. I went through my syllabi and took all of the assignments out and wrote the introductions, methods, discussions, and references for all of them and saved them so all I have to do weekly is plug in the results and alter a few things within the paper. Also I have a folder of graph templates with the axes labeled accordingly for each paper, I just have to fill in the A and B columns and do a quick edit. For me, I get as much as I can done as soon as possible so I am never unprepared or in a rush to do things. Also, I try to schedule my appointments as soon as the doors open. It works out because if you schedule in the late morning or afternoon, places are already behind so you have to wait. Going first thing eliminates me waiting - plus the employees are generally in A better mood. I could go on and on about managing my time but I don't want to be a total show off. 😂 One more thing. I have TurboScan on my phone so every time I get an important document, I scan it and upload it into my One drive account. I also make a hard copy of the document and put it in a briefcase - the original goes in fire safe.
