LeBron is usually outspoken about incidents and this is no different, RIP to Ahmaud Arbery.
So I have been living with my step mother and dad for the past few months.
I really dislike my stepmom. She is always insulting me for things that aren't fully my fault (like being socially anxious) and she doesn't treat me like a family member.
She also refuses to use my real name, because that's her other (older) kids name too. She calls me by my middle name instead, which I absolutely hate. I told this to her a thousand times, but she just doesn't care.
Yesterday I went shopping with her for groceries. After we got out of the shop and walked over to the car, she noticed her boss a few cars away and went over there to talk. After a few minutes of me awkwardly standing by the car she shouted to me to go there and introduce myself, but she, as always, didn't use my real name.
I decided to ignore her. I hoped that she will realize her "mistake" and correct herself, but she kept shouting my middle name. She gave up trying after a while and said goodbye to her boss very soon.

So I’ll keep this brief.
My mom and dad have been together for 23 years and have been quite successful.
They had me (20M), 3 years into their marriage. My mom got diagnosed with cancer and it’s been horrible. Well apparently my dad didn’t find it that bad because it turns out he was cheating with one of their tenants. She has 2 kids and is pregnant with my dads.
When I found out I was furious and told my mom which made her condition worse. They proceeded with divorce.
It was lengthy and my mom got everything. My dad tried to convince me to let him in their house to get his stuff but I blocked him and want nothing to do with him.
My mom evicted my dads mistress and all was well.
Turns out my dad had been paying his gf’s. They’ve been house skipping and times have been tough for them.
I came home from shopping a few days ago and they were on the front porch. My dad, his gf and her kids were all there. They asked for a place to stay and I told them get bent. In fairness the... keep reading on reddit ➡
So this happened about a week ago and I honestly am still fuming from this. I’m not sure if this belongs in this subreddit but here goes.
First a little backstory. I’m a mixed ethnicity individual. I’ve been confused for many races over the course of my 29 years on this planet but I’m literally Caucasian and African American. Usually it can be figured out but the difference with me is my father is the Caucasian so therefore my hair is straight. I’m originally from Texas and am usually confused for being Mexican. But now I live in Massachusetts and I’ve never had an issue with anyone concerning my race, until this day. Also I am married to a Caucasian woman who had a child before we were married. His father is not in his life as much and I took the responsibility because I love this woman and I love this little boy as if he were my own. He’s 4 now and I’ve been in his life since he was 1.
Anyways onto the story. My wife needed a few things from the grocery store and she needed to run... keep reading on reddit ➡
So my mom and step dad have been dating for a long time, like at least 7 years at this point and got married about 10-11 months ago. Me, my mom, my step dad and 3 step brothers all lived in an apartment for a bit. The youngest 2 shared a room and me and the oldest shared a room. I split time with my mom and dad, I am at my dad's for about 1 week at a time so its mainly always been at my mom's rather than at his. About 5 months ago they bought a 4 bedroom house, how they were going to do it was that they get their room, me and the oldest share a room and the younger 2 share a room while the spare room becomes a play area where a TV was going to be put in.
I was NOT happy about having to share a room, cause I frankly don't like him and why do I need to share a room when there is another room literally wide open. They wouldn't budge when I asked nicely, and I straight up told my mom that I will live with dad full time if she makes me share a room cause then at least there I would g... keep reading on reddit ➡
A couple years ago my dad got remarried. His new wife had a daughter and a son that my dad eventually adopted. They both have conditions which affect how their behavior and honestly make them really annoying to me. This is when I started to dislike going over there, but since they’re “family” so I tried to be nice. It was ok for awhile.
But about 5 months ago my stepmother died. After she died we had to move into a small two bedroom apartment. This meant that my dad was sharing a room with my stepbrother and I was now sharing a room with my stepsister. The lack of privacy and her always getting into my personal space and into my stuff is driving me crazy.
Without my stepmom my dad needed a lot of help with the kids so I often have to watch and take care of them myself which is exhausting as they need constant attention. Even when my dad is there there’s nowhere to get away from them or have time to myself. I’ve talked to my dad about it and he says he knows it’s tough,but in the en... keep reading on reddit ➡
Reddit is a safe space for racism. It shouldn't be.
The United States has a long-standing, inter-generational race relations issue. The internet has exacerbated this through euphemistic language - the technique which began with Barry Goldwater’s thinly disguised ‘states rights’ campaign is now commonplace and used every minute on this website to dismiss the concerns of ethnic minorities, women, LGBTQI+, and many others.
Racism is an intrusion of cockroaches living in the walls of Reddit. You may see one skittering across the floor, or racing away after you disturb its hiding spot, but that’s only one of the greater den this website harbors. Over years of inaction, this website has continued to allow anti-ethnic sentiments and communities to fester, tucked away in their own safe spaces, venturing out to provoke, incense and recruit.

A Secret Service agent, new on the job, shouts “Mickey Mouse!” This startles the would be assassin and he is captured. Later, the Secret Service agent’s supervisor asks him, “Why the hell did you shout Mickey Mouse?”

*FACEPALM* this is the V7 update... put V6 in the title and can't change it now...
The V7 deck is finally here thanks to the amazing team of people that 100% finished the Sketchy Path, Pixorize and First aid updates!! (all the contributors' names are listed below).
Special thanks to JB for the Sketchy Path updates (they have requested to stay anonymous--- Justin Beiber? James Bond? Jason Bourne? Jack Bauer? Most definitely one of those because they are amazing!). Another special thank you to u/deepugoesdeep for putting in an insane amount of time to help with Pixorize, SketchyPath, First Aid, duplicates and more, u/truthling for building an add-on that helped us find duplicates and trim the deck and u/MedicalArk for making an incredible new addition to the Dorian deck.
If you're taking step 1- now that its P/F, step 2 is more relevant so you might as well start those cards early.
If you're taking step 2- there is a lot of overlap with the... keep reading on reddit ➡
Me and my wife split when our son was around 4ish, I don't want to go in-depth but she got married almost 3 months after our divorce. We split custody 50/50 so I got him 2 weeks every month and summer while she got him for easter and christmas.
My ex's husband brought 4 kids together with my ex and my son, I don't have any other kids so it was just him. My son changed the custody when he was 13 to where he spends summers, christmas and 3 weeks at my place with 1 week at their. I know the divorce was hard and we did put him in therapy but he stopped after awhile cause he didn't feel anything was really changing and he seems better.
He texted me that he was coming over, and my ex called me and she was very mad at me. She said that I am poisoning our son, cause she said that he NEVER talks to his step dad or step siblings. She said thinks like he calls himself an only child, never talks to his step siblings at all, never talks to his step dad and said that if he could would live wi... keep reading on reddit ➡
As someone who comes from a country where there is no official acknowledgement of the concept of "race", I wonder about this sometimes. My understanding is that some government forms in the US ask for the person's "race", and that people can put down whatever they want without having to provide documentation. Is this right? If you hand in your form at the DMV and you checked a box in the "race" section that is obviously the "wrong" one, does the clerk have authority to fix it based on their own perception? Would they process the form without questioning it?
Obviously I'm not naive enough to think this could be a loophole that could allow dark-skinned to magically avoid some of the systemic racism they're subject to. What I'm wondering is, how is this whole system enforced? In my country, for pretty much any information you provide, there exists some document or other that can "prove" it's legit (in fact, much of our interactions with the government is "pLeAsE pRoViDe DoCuMeNtAtIoN" an... keep reading on reddit ➡
Throwaway as this is my first Reddit account
I have a mom and a dad. I love my dad a lot more. My mom and my step dad are worse financially than my father. My dad promised that my dept where going to be cleared if i was going to graduate college. Recently I gained 30,000 k from my grandmothers inheritance. And I already gained 50,000 dollars from my grandfather at my mom side. I am really sad they both passed away. I plan to use that money to pay for other costs of college living other than tuition.
I also saved around 6,000 dollars from my business and chores. I made my money from brick link and I did hours and hours of yard work. So last night I was at my moms house and my mom showed my sister her new gift which was a car for my sister graduation gift. I wondered how they got that money as I know the car is more than there budget.
So I went and checked my bank account and I found out that it was empty. My mom made it a joint account so I don't waste money. I was furious and cal... keep reading on reddit ➡
God this is so dumb! I can't believe I am posting this because it’s so ridiculous.
Little Context: Mom and Dad divorced because he came out of the closet. Growing up, I had to live with my mom and her new misogynist husband, who I hate because he is just bonkers and made my life miserable. I am now living with my dad and this happened in a video chat I had today with my mom.
One of my cousins was planning to marry in July (not anymore) so that’s how we got into the topic and the next conversation:
M: Is so sad Jasmin is not getting married this year, but I am sure when it happens it would be gorgeous, she is so classy, like you my dear. Oh, OP, can you imagine your own wedding?! I just shiver when I think about it, you in a beautiful princess dress getting out of a limo and then walking into a cathedral to meet the love of your life. Is like I can see it right now... the veil, the details, the flowers in the floor, Alex's (my stepdad) suit matching your gown as he walks you down .... keep reading on reddit ➡
Me and my step sister's birthdays are within 4 days of each other but she is a year older than me, since we all moved in together when we were like 3 and 4 we have always shared a birthday which is on mine since its later. She is at our place 2 weeks out of the month and every easter and christmas and spends summers and all the 3 day weekends at her mom's. Her mom is a lot more well off than my mom and step dad so she has always gotten way better presents than me. I don't mind that and I know my mom and step dad try hard to get me stuff too and my step sister doesn't really rub it in.
I do all my school work online now that they school is closed, and I've never had my own computer and have always used the family computer in the living room for all my work. My birthday was a month ago and I asked for laptop so I could do my work in my room. I honestly didn't expect one but for my birthday I got a lap top.

Dear Blogsnark Community,
We are deeply sorry for our mismanagement of this subreddit. When Blogsnark was created, we were a very small subreddit that relied primarily on self-moderation and making it up as we went along. As the subreddit grew and grew, we should have taken more meaningful action to re-evaluate our moderation practices, sub rules, the way we communicate, etc. to best meet the needs of this community. With this in mind, many members of the previous mod team have decided to step down from their roles and have a transition team of Blogsnark members work alongside the community to pick new moderators, revisit our rules and policies, and more.
We are incredibly sorry that it seemed like the voices of BIPOC were intentionally being silenced – this was absolutely not the case. Due to various factors (e.g., trolling), we have auto-mod set to filter specific words or phrases and send those comments to the mod queue for manual approval. For example, we have a filter for wo... keep reading on reddit ➡
In 2018 we were allowed to recycle immortals for Battle Pass Points which was great for getting closer to Aegis etc.
In 2019 they took away recycling for BP points and replaced it with recycling 5 immortals for 1 more extra treasure. Diminishing returns quite considerably.
Well in 2020 they really screwed the consumer. This year you cannot recycle for BP points OR extra treasures. They give a measly 60 gold for the side shop now when you recycle an immortal, which by the way gives you absolutely jack shit (another mini casino within a casino).
So essentially if you want the Ultra Rare drops from the immortal chests, you absolutely must throw around 200-300 bucks bucks at it because you cannot and will not be able to buy the Ultra Rares from the marketplace. Valve has made ALL immortals untradable/unmarketable until next year.
So buyer beware, their business practices just turned full scumbag.
Now wait and see all the downvotes from Valve shills. So sad that people willingly allo... keep reading on reddit ➡

My family is getting together for a family reunion of sorts, but only for the immediate family but my step kids (her biological kids) don’t want to be around my biological kids(her step kids) because they absolutely despise my biological children, because of an opportunity gap.
My wife and I both have kids from our respective first marriages, both of which ended in death . My late wife’s family was always far more wealthy than mine, my current wife’s, or her late husband’s. While they’re not like billionaires Fortune 500 rich they’re still pretty up there.
Obviously without ex spouses all of our kids lived together, and they’re all within 0-2 years of each other.
When my Christmas or birthdays rolled around for my bio kids their grandparents always got them lots of expensive presents, which is pretty normal for a blended family, though my step kids were never that fond of the disparity (especially on Christmas, I don’t think getting the gifts compared at one time was great for th... keep reading on reddit ➡
I wanted to title this "Gearbox is incompetent" or "Mayhem 2.0 is a failure". And while I still think both those things are true, I still hope that somehow this absolute mess of a game can somehow be redeemed.
At this point, I think the Gearbox dev team needs to swallow their pride and accept that Mayhem 2.0 was a mistake. The general sentiment I'm seeing is that M1.0 with Mayhem 4 was far and away the best this game has been. I agree. Mayhem 4 offered a decent challenge without forcing modifiers on us, while still having a massive amount of variety in terms of guns and builds.
This latest patch only served to limited the already starved viable loot pool, and threw a band aid on a sinking ship. 300/90 is basically another useless anointment now, limiting, yet again, the amount of useful anoints. Phase 1 of "fixing" M2.0 only made it worse. It becomes more and more clear that Gearbox has no philosophy or vision for balance, and they sure as shit do not test the changes they implement.... keep reading on reddit ➡
