With everything happening in America, I started the process to transfer to another country. All the racial conflict, horrendous leadership, and deep seated, structural inequality don’t bode well for the future. Does anyone else feel this way?

Wait til OP finds out about the right wing extremists that actually have power in Germany, the bias against immigrants due to their higher proportion of crime, and the contracting economy.
And we all know what German nationals do when their economy doesn’t do too well...and it usually doesn’t bode well for non nationals. Unlike what CNN tells you, European countries aren’t all paradise.
Enjoy Deutschland, make a follow up post when you come fleeing back.

With all the challenges with America, this is still the country I want to be in. I am an immigrant; US citizen now.
Most of the rhetoric you hear is simply politics; country is divided for sure, but it’s politically motivated. Deep down, majority of the Americans are not racists. With social media it is hard to avoid and you hear every opinion, but don’t think the grass is greener elsewhere. There are other problems elsewhere. This too will pass.

Good luck to you. Maybe you find your happiness and peace.

You don’t know how good you have it...American media is sensationalist about all these problems but many other places are just as bad if not worse

I’m moving to Germany! There’s tons of great countries in the world. I’m black, but my mom is German so it makes the whole process so much easier.

Plus, no reason to stay in America and have children on a sinking ship.

Wishing you all the best. I lived in Germany for a few months after graduating and decided it wasn’t for me, later tried US and been here for a few years. In my home country I had negative biases because I was an unpopular category of immigrant, but there aren’t many of us in USA and it’s so nice not to have that negative behavior here. Now I’m just a slightly intriguing unusual immigrant. Much better! Has made a huge difference. Happy I don’t have to be stuck in US though, I agree with your original post...

i think it’s hilarious that people say “if you don’t like how america works then why don’t you LEAVE! hmph!” and then when skilled people like OP actually leave for other countries and opportunities, those same people mock them for leaving. OP good luck in Germany!

Don’t give up on America. There will always be issues but we are who we are because we don’t give up. I would say contribute. Make the environment around you exactly how you want it to be and if everyone does the same to weed out the inequalities at a local level we won’t have these issues at a higher level. Play your part.

I’ve been looking into Germany and the Netherlands. I’m expecting Biden to win the election, and that probably buys us a few more years, but our republic is not in great shape.

In the last few years, we’ve blown past a lot of the warning signs on the road to fascism, and there are a lot of cultists eager to take us there.

Good luck, OP! Germany is the leader of the West for now, but I hope the US reclaims that role in the future.

Lots of hard questions in front of us and no one will have answers without a lot of hard work and dialogue. Too bad the extremes don’t want to hear anything except their own point of view reflected back at them.

How do you all answer “anything new going on?” Friends and family always ask me this, and as I’m single, not dating, don’t have kids, no house, no pets nothing...I don’t. There’s always an awk pause and then we just talk about other things. Does anyone relate to this or can give me pointers on what to talk about/say?

In a LT relationship that checks all the boxes, and my SO makes an obvious effort to make sure I feel appreciated. Problem is every time I try to do something special for them, I'm met with unenthusiastic comments or "you didn't have to do that". They don't make much effort to join my family events, and when there was a stressful event in their family they asked me to stay home and watch the pet while they went to visit. I was the only SO not there, and while they made it clear i wasn't at fault
