Tainari88 wrote::D I believe you are one of those men that find girlfriends fairly easily. Lol.
This scene being trapped in the USA due to pandemic issues and work visas is common. My husband has the same problem. I hate this situation. Got to get through it though.
I say you try for a Puerto Rican girlfriend in that small town. If there aren't any? Then you will be in deep problems. Ha ha ha...
Hermano, it is hard not to like you when you want a peleita (a little fight with these trolls we got here).
Crantag wrote:I've never met any Puerto Ricans or Columbians here. I did meet a nice Columbian girl in Tokyo once, but it was all platonic, and I was dating a Vietnamese girl at the time. She was hot though. There are a lot of Mexicans here, and I made friends with some Guatemalan dudes once, who lived next to me in my apartment building, when I was living in town to attend college. I did have a big crush on a Mexican girl once (when I say Mexican I mean from Mexico). We worked together, in a factory. She was young and hot, and we were friendly. But she was from a traditional family, and I believe they didn't approve. I worked with her older sister on the same factory floor, so the parents probably got regular reports of our flirtations. Or maybe the chemistry never quite reached a boiling point. Sorta suspect the former, but could be the latter. I think in my circumstances a Mexican girl might be good. Or, nothing wrong with American girls. This is a pretty white and Hispanic area. Maybe I could find a nice Chinese girl in the weeds, lol.
Tainari88 wrote:Hee hee. The way you write I would say a nice girl of any background is what you are looking for.
I have so many beautiful girls I know....but the truth is you will have to have compatibility. That is not at all an easy thing to accomplish.
This dating thing nowadays is a very hard situation.
But in Mexico? It is important to speak Spanish and be acceptable to her family. But the dating is not as restricted at all as it was in the past.
White and Hispanic area?
Oops, time for breakfast. I have a busy schedule today. And I got an immigration appointment today.

Crantag wrote:Nah, you misread me.
I'm looking for my sweet Maria. That was her name.
I'll settle for another sweet Mexican girl.
But, girls are girls, I like American girls too, if they ain't too stuck up, there are cool girls out there.
I'm sorta heart broken though, in all honesty, I still love my Chinese former girlfriend. But I can't go back.
You gotta wait for your man, though. Different situations.
Pants-of-dog wrote:They are not.
But we all know what the stats say:
If you are black, you are more likely to be killed by cops.
If you suffer from mental illness, you are more likely to be killed by cops.
If you live in the USA, you are more likely to be killed by cops.
Unthinking Majority wrote:I would also go with this hypothesis. But what's the evidence? What is the likelihood of getting shot per encounter with police for blacks vs other races?
I would also go with this hypothesis. What are the stats?
I would guess this to be accurate. But what is the reason? Are cops in America worse? Is it because cops are scared because the US populace is highly armed?
Pants-of-dog wrote:I am not sure of the exact numbers. It is an easy Google search.
More importantly, we should look at the causes and find ways of addressing them.
Mire important is the fact that we already know the solution: send mental health professionals to deal with people suffering from mental illness, not cops.
These are good questions.
What I usually do when I think I have good questions is to do a Google search for studies that can verify or disprove these questions.
I would Google “ study causes of police brutality” and “ study relationship of police brutality and number of guns population”.
Unthinking Majority wrote:Yes but you're making a claim that it's worse for black people. As I said, my hypothesis is that this would be true. But is it? And by how much?
I don't believe claims and narratives by media and activists unless it's supported by statistical evidence.
Yes I agree with this. We're seeing some departments hiring social workers, which is good to see. I think having more women in departments is also good, because people tend to feel less threatened by them.
Pants-of-dog wrote:The police department does not need to be involved at all, except in the rare circumstances where the person suffering from mental illness is a danger to others.
Pants-of-dog wrote:Again, it is true and the statistical evidence is easy to find.
Unthinking Majority wrote:If it's easy to find then post a link to the evidence.
Pants-of-dog wrote:No, since that is not the important part of my post. It would make more sense to focus on the causes of police brutality and killings.
