France is next.

Things are shaping up for a second round between the conservatives and the far right, and worse possibly Sarkozy - Le Pen. Probably not great either way, even with a less horrible candidate than Sarkozy.

Cannot rule out, if things continue that way, that France may have a Frexit moment too.

A Trump victory would embolden the far right in Europe and I would expect some possible massive breaks in the alliance and defence setup, if only because US leadership will suffer.

It's true though.  Just as the world was starting to become more social progressive, we're hitting a time where everyone's getting scared and regressing.  I blame the rise of visible terrorism, the falling world economy post 2008 (thanks USA) and I seriously blame the goddamn internet.  The internet has enabled the uneducated to join meme machine bandwagons and reiterate lies and deteriorated actual truth in the world.  The fact a huge online side of trump supporters are reddit/gamergate types (aka enabled white manchildren) is disgusting.  The spread of available knowledge with the internet should have lead to a more progressive world.  Instead we have reddit.

The worst part of this isn't even the presidency.  I can live with 4 shitty years of Trump as long as he doesn't launch any nukes and start WW3 (even though he's gonna end up repealing Obamacare and get rid of pre-existing condition lockouts which will effect me directly and could possibly kill me),

But the Supreme Court picks are going to swing the SC red for decades and totally fuck the USA.  Worst thing is Obama should've gotten his replacement locked in.  It was bullshit that they stalled it.

I know it's retrospect and all at this point, but the pure antagonizing hate towards Obama for 8 years from the right should've been a flag that the right are pissed and gonna come out in droves one of these days.  For a follow up to Obama, Dems really should've played it straight with a normal white guy and let the hate on the right simmer down for a period before trying to run a woman or minority sadly.

One thing I've noticed from lots of white people on both sides of the aisle is they find it very hard to accept that black people can hate white people for treating them like human garbage for years while simultaneously finding the fact that lots of white people hate black people because of the color of their skin not too difficult.

I wonder why that is  :doge

Germany? After WWII Germany made it illegal to have a Nazi uniform or flag. America allowed confederate flags to still exist under the guise of "freedom" despite being a symbol of racism. Germany? Germany went into thorough attempts to educate a new generation so nazi-Ism is uniformly seen as a gross injustice and platform to partake in. America? we gloss over the harsh realities of the past that minorities faced (even the Irish!). Germany paid reparations to Jewish people while white Americans recoil at the mere thought despite it being justified.

Please don't airbrush the utter failure of the FRG to engage in meaningful Denazification.

Fuck it, I'll take it further than that. Since we can have everything in a single click on the Internet, what's considered news these days has turned to bite sized clickbait shit, including broadcast TV. TV news has to keep up with all the eyeballs of the Internet, so the lowest common denominator of information along with a 3 second factoid completely devoid of research passes for news.

Not that network news' pursuit of ratings is anything new, but it just seems more brazen.

I'm not one to pass on the opportunity to kick down le Boche and while all of what you say is true (on top of the fact that "denazification" was first engaged at the behest of the foreign occupying powers, in the same half assed manner to my understanding as it was not practical to break Germany beyond a certain point) I don't think one can deny that the WW2 aftermath did force some European self-reflection on those matters and led to a strong backlash against some casual racism that was a fact of life (mostly antisemitism, colonization didn't die overnight even if ultimately it was brought down by the same apparent "revealed" contradictions), though it unfortunately seems that this pushback is  relying on how strong the memories of shame and trauma are, and those will fade out with time.

All that to say that I don't think the point QoI made was without merit : there's definitely an American specificity to how institutionalized racism played out compared to Europe. Even if it was only Europeans affecting to not be as blatant about it in their mainland and their core expressed values.

We're gonna be alright.

I saw a post in the politics thread, showing the five stages of grief. It dawned on me that as we are moving forward as a species, a portion of us, those who fear change, are also in grief for their changing lifestyle. Trump's election is the embodiment of their anger at disenfranchisement. Though I think this is horrible for us as a nation, and as a species, I also think it's a temporary setback.

Even if it was only Europeans affecting to not be as blatant about it in their mainland and their core expressed values.

In America racist symbols are generally allowed de jure.

In Germany some racist symbols aren't allowed. In Germany you also have the NSU-Morde going unsolved for far too long (and the BfV destroying evidence it had on the neo-Nazis responsible for those murders after the neo-Nazi element came to light), the approximately equal surveillance of Die Linke and neo-Nazi political parties, or the V-Mann program making it difficult if not impossible to meaningfully shut down neo-Nazi political parties.

Americans have, continue to, and possibly always will, engage in denial about their history of racism (in both the public and quasi-public spheres) which is infuriating to anyone possessing a shred of familiarity with the history of those things.

Europeans (not just Germans) pay lip service to their crimes of the 20th Century after their continent was ethnically cleansed of the group that they tortured, repressed, and murdered for centuries. I commend them for closing the barn door after it had been left open overnight. For a week.

I looked at the district map for Texas last night. It was blue on the west side of the peninsula, and each of the four major cities. The cities just looked... surrounded.

I know you want to head for California, but maybe you could consider Canada? From what my friends tell me, black people are treated there the way we pretend they're treated in the USA.

It's hard to advise for abdication, but Texas looks like shithead central to me today. I hope you can live the life you deserve.

I refuse to let go of my ambitions despite this election. California is still the goal. Canada has gatekeepers for the animation industry as they are one of the best creators for the field and are very protective of it and since I'm doing an alternative route to get into the industry Canada isn't the answer. In the past, I would have loved to look into looking abroad but I've settled that I want to stay and fight instead while achieving my career goals.

Texas cities are really diverse, for sure: Houston is less than 50% white, San Antonio is more than 60% hispanic, Dallas is less than 50% white, Austin his a larger white population but is really liberal, El Paso is more than 80% hispanic. Houston and Dallas both have large Muslims communities. Recently, there's been a huge expansion of Asian businesses in north Dallas, from my own experience.

Once you're out of the cities, though, it's definitely CAC Town, though.

Santa Fe is a great city for artists of all kinds. I'm about an hour south in Albuquerque but if you ever feel like checking out the state you're welcome here :)
