Talk about the good, the bad, the ugly.

This seems to be a subject that people on this board like to talk about and has derailed many a thread in the past so I thought we could use a place to talk about it. If a thread is being derailed by talk about American politics, culture, whatever, it can be brought over here.

No. 321960

I live in NI and I do see USA as a land that upholds freedoms and the right to believe in what you want. In some ways the states is very progressive and very regressive. I've always fantasised about moving there one day but obviously shootings scare me and the bigotry (since coming from a small cesspool of sectarianism). How do you US citizens actually feel about the day to day? Are jobs hard to come by in Stem fields?

No. 321964

I live in an area that's got a huge concentration of gun owners and I feel 100% safe going about daily life. Of course, considering all of the mass shootings you see on the news, maybe it's foolish of me not to ever worry? Idk. As for jobs in STEM, there are plenty. Especially in big cities. I would think it wouldn't be difficult to find something and maybe the company you work for now (or will work for in the future) has a branch over here to transfer to.

No. 321968

Lots of STEM jobs, but hard to come by art ones unless you have connections up the ass. Also, almost everyone conceal carries guns, knives, tazers, etc. every day no matter what state you're in. This is important especially if you're a woman. The mass shootings you hear on the news aren't apart of daily life at all.

No. 321972

If you’re in an extremely liberal city like Los Angeles, you’re not going to come across gun owners as often as other places in the states. Then again, a place like LA has its own set of issues such as the fairly high cost of living and horrendous traffic.

The states really are just so varied in their character though. You can’t really generalize America entirely for that reason.

No. 321977

Not a citizen but visit frequently because of friends and family there. They actually live close to the recent mass shooting in Thousand oaks which is a shame honestly.

I never felt in danger because first of all it's California, and to be honest, I'm also white so I can't tell how a black gal might feel in the same situation. Though there was some local outrage over a local dive bar having a noose displayed, although the owners always assured it wasn't for racist reasons.

Everyone I talked to was pretty excited about where I was from. I never felt excluded and quite frankly, american people can be extremely helpful for no reason. Not saying that non-americans won't be too, but you won't have to fend off people trying to help you out when you already called AAA 5 minutes ago.

It's honestly a solid country but idk why everyone is so hellbent on calling it the best country or the free world, when imo Australia is just as pleasant with a better healthcare.

No. 321978

Same anon. A lot of gun violence is in areas that people don’t necessarily choose to move to. If you’re a suburban-fag then you’re fine for the most part.

And idk why people go on about bigots and racists, for every racist old lady at Walmart theres some pink haired sjw spoiting their nonsense. Its a pretty even playing field. Sure there are trashy people, but thats universal.

If anything the US is just boring AF to live if you arent from a major city. And even then its just alright. This is coming from someone who lives aborad and is currently back home to visit for a few months. I dont have a valid license or a car that I can use. My rural-suburban neighborhood doesn’t have sidewalks or any decent lanes to bike in. People get married and pop out babies starting at like 19 amd have no real view of the world outside of their hometowns, but that can be said for small town folk in places like the UK or Australia as well.

I also think a lot of housing and apartments can look gross and ugly when you get into newly built suburban areas. At least down here in Texas.

America is cool but as a Brit, something I don't like whenever I visit is how you need a car or some other vehicle to get basically anywhere, particularly if you're not in a huge city centre like Manhattan. In the UK, even in London, you can basically just walk most of the time.

No. 322010

I'm American and live in a Midwest state. I'm from a suburb of a larger city so I've never experienced half the problems people shit on the midwest for. Everytime I go back to visit it feels so nice. I've been to smaller cities and really hate them just because there isn't a lot to do but I think that can be said for any small town anywhere in the world so eh. I find people who needlessly shit on the country as a whole to be really cringe and ignorant since, as has been said in the thread already, America is large enough you really can't generalize it. I see Americans who live abroad do this a lot and all it does is make them seem like they think they're "not like the other Americans". Obviously, not all are that far up their own ass but there are a lot like that.

My hometown is perfect for the type of lifestyle I want and all in all, the reasons people shit on it are just stereotypes so it really isn't as bad as people make it out to be. America of course has its own problems and different parts have different issues as well but I actually like living here since it has to be far better than in certain places in the Middle East.

>>322001
I hate this too tbh. My hometown has a good public transit system but realized they could do better so they're finally expanding it. I'm in a small college town atm though and the public transit is abysmal. You either hope there's a bus that goes somewhere you need(there normally isn't), or you just call an Uber if you don't have a car.

This is my main issue with America. i love my country but we are built to support cars and there are hardly any walkways here or public metros outside a big city. I live outside DC and far away enough where it takes a long time to get there. I like walking and i'm sick of how much the cars get priority over people walking. I can't afford a car right now, so it's extra shit.

Also, uber is expensive

Shootings aren't actually a huge problem once you cut out gang violence. Gang members target rivals, usually.
You can stay safer, if you're still worried, by staying in places with less violence. But mostly, just don't go into shitty neighborhoods. https://crimeresearch.org/2017/04/number-murders-county-54-us-counties-2014-zero-murders-69-1-murder/

No. 322020

I live in Chicago and I hate it. Overall there’s a lot of violence due to gangs. The city is changing for the most part due to gentrification but I live in “the hood” so I still hear gunshots nearly every week. I live in a black neighborhood and there’s some bullshit going on outside of my house daily. The other day a girl ran her boyfriend over with her car and dragged him down the whole street. Even in nicer areas you still get horrible people going over there to steal so I mean it’s a shit fest here.

I wish crosswalks worked better near my town. You have to wait super long for a chance to cross but the light goes back to red after 5 seconds.

i used to walk to work and the grocery store because at most it was a 30 minute trip. i didnt feel the need to buy a $30k vehicle just to make those short trips. people really do look at you like youre poor or have a drug problem. and forbid you tell someone you dont have a car or license because the idea of willingly not wanting to drive is so far removed from people that its weird to prefer to walk.

but i imagine it was only so weird where i was because its not built for pedestrian accessibility.

No. 322036

It pisses me off, anon. This is why so many americans are fat asses. No one is encouraged to walk. I'm from a pretty big city, so walking is the norm, but anyone outside the city walking makes no sense to a lot of people. Mainly because no sidewalks and pedestrian walkways are there for people. Places are built so far apart that you 'need' a vehicle to get around. Luckily there are bike paths here, but it's still shit.

oh totally! i live in good ol southern burgerland and it really does live to the stereotype of rampant obesity. parks with walking and bike paths are just now becoming a thing theyre introducing instead of it just being a small playset and three football fields. sidewalks will end randomly along a roadside or if it goes too far away from a main road so youre walking in overgrown grass and mud. its unbelievable.

I live in the PNW, and I love it. Mass transit here is normal, and a good majority of people bike everywhere (including me). I feel really fortunate, because I don’t need to drive or even have a license to get anywhere. I couldn’t imagine living in any other part of the country because of this. Also, no sales tax is amazing. Always a shock whenever I go to another state because I forget that it’s the norm most places kek. Move here guys, it’s s piece of heaven.

This is like where i live right now!! I have side walks in my area cuz there are houses, but as soon as you get to the main road, the sidewalks end. They can easily build some, but choose not to. On a nice day, it's okay, but the grass is so overgrown that i'm afraid of being bitten by a snake.

“Anon we REALLY need to get you a license” 99% of the time they say it because they reached out to me to do some favor for them like babysit or house sit and got pissed because they had to pick me up or drive me home.

I live in San Francisco, California and I interact with a lot of tourists from all over the world for my job.

I find it funny that both San Francisco and California are both romanticized by people who don’t even like America. But the truth is San Francisco is fucking filthy. Sure Coit Tower and Alcatraz are nice but what you don’t see is people shooting up heorin in board daylight or th rampant amount of homeless people (Okay, most tourists come across that but you get my point). I don’t think it’s a uniquely an SF or American thing but since I’m from here I think about it a lot. It’s kinda like how a lot of Americans romanticize Paris but when Paris has its own problems (Not trying to rag on Paris, just saying that no place is perfect).

Also another thing about California is that the coast (like SF, L.A, and San Diego) is nice but inland California is straight up hicksville, save for Tahoe.

No. 322071

Like some other anons, I don't have a car now and it makes it impossible to get anywhere here in a small "city" in the South. I miss when I was abroad and the public transportation was so reliable and safe, and I could walk everywhere. Here, sidewalks suck and I feel like I'm going to get stabbed or approached by some drug addicts for money when I walk to the grocery store. The upside to being an American is that I think society can be a lot less strict…you can kind of do whatever you want without pissing most people off.

I'm from SF too (born and raised) and I feel like the city's gotten a lot worse in the past few years. The homelessness problem is completely out of control (straight up tent cities in some places). I've heard that the people in shelters are families with TWO parents working full-time. It's ridiculous how unaffordable the city has become. Kind of hilarious that every bougie restaurant has Help Wanted signs when no waiter could possibly afford SF right now (not gonna get into gentrification politics but obviously a city cannot be 100% software engineers lmao)

No. 322078

Ruralfag from the Midwest here, I hate having a car, but it's the only way I can get to work 40 minutes away from my house since it's the only place that paid well that didn't require college education. Winter is a bitch too. Everyone sucks at driving. I've had to go through 2 cars because of it rusting so bad from the salt on the roads, but I guess my fault since both of my cars were under $500. KEK
I wish I lived in a city, I went to go visit a friend in LA last year and we did everything by walking and busses. I felt like I had purpose in life. I'm cooped up in my house all day because I'm surrounded by cornfields and the only way to get anywhere is by car.

I grew up in Northern VA (Fairfax county) and I'll be honest, getting around without a car is hard. It can be done, but it's not as easy as in a lot of other metropolitan areas. The Metro is not great. BUT your experience can differ dramatically depending on where you are specifically.

My experience of growing up here was weird because as an adult, I see why my parents chose it–it's got a lot of job and shopping options, it's got good infrastructure, etc. But I found it really fucking boring to grow up in. It felt like a place without a history–restaurants and shops that exist everywhere, people (including my family) from all over the world, no one with roots more than 10 years old. I have good memories, but it was never a place I remotely considered living in as an adult and the traffic makes it hard to explore. But the city itself is fun and the museums and culture of it are amazing.

Every other country out there uses mostly people from their country to portay the hero AND the villain.

>american "hero" vs evil russians
>american "hero" vs yakuza
>american "hero" vs nazi germans
>american "hero" vs chinese mafia
Oftentimes it's not even the main theme of the movie, but the killers just "accidentally" happen to be all Russians… What makes the American guy who killed a dozen the good one and the Japanese guy who killed a dozen a cold blooded killer?

why are people such cows when it comes to their politics? so many people have to "announce" their leaving one side to go to the other, it just screams attention seeking rather than actually discovering what they "truly believe in".

the elections happened and a few of my townie friends were talking about how some girl they thought was cool turned out to be a right winger. took one look at the girl's instagram and a majority of the people she follows are all right wing internet personalities like milo, lauren southern, and rando trad girls.

this reminded me of this long thread that was retweeted on my twitter timeline months ago of some guy who was bragging about how he used to be an alt-righter but now he realized he was brainwashed and is now a communist. took one look at the guy's following list, all left wing internet personalities & companies.

both of these people, all they know is discussing politics. how exhausting must it be to be friends with this person if all they surround themselves with is politics?

what do other anons think about these people who make announcements about themselves going to the "other side" of the political spectrum? all i know is that once someone starts bragging about their political beliefs, it's a red flag.

I'm not sure who can really compete with Trump as far as having a die hard fanbase and also appealing to people outside of that.

When people start talking about politics more than their daily lives and real world interests, it's never a good sign, no matter what those politics are.

I also hate it when people profess to 'know' that they're right. People who believe that shit are dangerous, whether they're political or not. They stop being objective.

Studying in baguette land and I absolutely adore Paris and France as a whole. I grew up in the middle of fucking nowhere Southern California, if you wanted to do anything interesting or fun you had to drive 45 min to an hour. If you have no car, you have no life. I also lived on the east coast for a bit and basically encountered the same thing. I’m in Paris now so cost of living sucks but there’s so much to do and see, every inch of the city has something interesting like museums, flea markets, I even catch myself just looking at the different architecture all around. I also lived in Normandy for a bit and visit Rhone Alpes regularly which are way more rural but still 10x better than the beige brown rocks and weeds I grew up around. There’s always a castle to visit, an ancient ruin to see, a regional cuisine to try. I seriously don’t want to go back, France is so much more pleasing to the eye than Southern California, and honestly a lot more friendly than they’re given credit for (in my opinion)

I've taken a few vacations in Paris and Nice and I've always found that if I make an effort to speak some French the people instantly loosen up and become friendly. They usually still switch to English because my French isn't very good, but it seems like they appreciate that I made the attempt.

Objectivity doesn't exist anyways. You'll always have bias, no matter what and thinking you are being objective just makes you less prone to acknoweledge your bias.

In Rhone Alpes it depends on where you go, you should try to visit Annecy and Lyon. And if you're rich enough or can find nice deals maybe you should try to go to the mountains there on winter holidays if you like skiing.

I'm French but not white, and I find it funny because I visited Paris for a few days for holidays some months ago with some relatives and in some relatively touristic places and employees everywhere would immediately start talking English to us. Same thing with an Asian friend when we visited the south of France together. It was really awkward.

I didn't see your reply, sorry. I see that Washington DC is small, maybe in the case of a long trip I should visit bigger places like New York or Florida and then end the trip with Washington DC?

baguette fag here AND from Normandy ! Which part of Normandy did you visit ? Haute or Basse ?

Well to be fair if you go further into the countryside it'd be the same as what you described, just as any country that is similarly developped. A lot of train lines are closing due to too few people taking them and a shit ton of towns become more and more isolated because of it, and the result is the same as where you're from, no car = no life.
But France's countryside is beautiful and underrated.
I'm very glad to see someone enjoying France, as Paris often gets bashed for being filthy and filled with assholes (which is true, ngl).
How long are you staying there ?
