  • B because different races often speak different languages and i hate not being able to understand people when they're speaking a different language around me.

  • i feel that being surrounded by people on different race, you can still talk about the problems that people face, but imagine if i am the only girl in the room and i am surrounded by 4 men, they will make pair and trust me, men will have their own conversation while i am the one who will be stuck, feeling alone.

      Actually yeah I'm taking a history class and besides my teacher I'm the only girl. Then not to mention I'm a different race also but honestly it really didn't bother me :)

      Thanks it really means a lot and you're certainly a kind person way more than I am. As for enduring racist remarks actually no not frequently in real life basically only while I'm on GAG. The only trouble I've had in real life were unfortunately with cops but it rarely happened.

    • 2mo

      Well, apart from those occurrences which are sad, I'm happy it's something that only happens rarely :D
      Just don't run away okay... than they win and they don't deserve it!
      If you get racist remarks don't hesitate to report the user or the post. No one wants users on GAG to be treated disrespectfully.
      And first of all, keep smiling :D :D

  • Neither troubles me

      What if the people of the other race were speaking a different language? Or what if the all the girls were talking about guys or something else that kind of excludes you?

      Would you be perfectly fine?

      Thanks also it's really cool how much you've traveled :)

      @DivaMonae Ialways liked traveling, did a lot with my parents later with my wife. Then at 30 I got a big health scare and did a number of longer voyages. Later, when our son traveled on his own we went to Tunisia while he was in the US

  • I've had the first scenario happen when I had a group interview at a chiropractor's office and out of 20 applicants, I was the only guy there. Felt so out of place haha.

  • I went to a school where it was 98% white in HS.
    I couldn't give 2 fucks because everyone liked me. Or didn't fuck with me.

    With a room full of girls I'm fine. But being a model who's chill if I don't feel like talking their nervousness makes me uncomfortable so I usually am forced to talk when I don't want to because then they get all annoying and start to get butt hurt nd think I'm gay

      And they also try to do distracting shit to get my attention. Then I see it takes less effort to talk then to try and ignore

      What if they were speaking a language that you don't know? Or the girls are gossiping would you be fine with not partaking or being ignored?

    • 2mo

      Girls don't tend to ignore me but I'd be fine with them having side conversations... I don't care when people speak other languages either. Many times they get the impression that I understand them, and maybe they're right... :p I grew up in south Florida so hearing people speak Spanish, Portuguese, Creole (Haitian), or French (Quebec) around me is nothing new.

    • 2mo

      Thanks for the explanation :)

  • Definitely option A

      Like I get where you're coming from tbh I'm really not bothered by eithernof them either and people are people regardless of their race or sex.

      However I can't say that I wouldn't be uncomfortable at all if people of the other race were all speaking a different language and excluding me. Do you get what I mean?

    • 2mo

      If I was in another country and I was lost and felt like I couldn't communicate with anyone there. Then it might be uncomfortable. But yeah if you feel excluded then I get what you mean by that

    • 2mo

      Thank you much :)

  • Damn I meant to pick A. I have been in both situations before, and A has more potential to be awkward if the guys are jerks and they make fun of me because of my looks. When I was the only girl with my 5 male roommates, they were all cool so I felt comfortable. I don't care enough about race to make it an issue. Why does everything have to be about race with you americans? It's such a third world way of thinking for such a first world country. Get yo shit together!

      Unfortunately America isn't as diverse as we would like to think.

      But in all honesty I've been in both situations and I make do just fine. People are people.

    • 2mo

      Yeah the mind set apparently is still less diverse in its backwardness...

  • A lot of times I am the only Iranian in the room so no biggie

  • Definitely option 2.
    Because I interacted a lot with opposite sex hence I'm comfortable with them.
    But I almost never interact with people of different race (IRL) so...

  • It really depends on the context. Neither HAS to be awkward but like.. if I'm at a BLM meeting or surrounded by a bunch of rapey guys in a dark alley.. that's gonna suck.

  • When I'm going to perform on Sunday, I'll have to get to the location, in a car full of guys and if one black guy wasn't there, I'd be the only black surrounded by Asian males.
    But I don't think race would make anything awkward because i like other races

      I probably would are chicks since I find it hard to find common ground if they're not a gamer.

  • I live in upstate Ny so I'm used to B and probably wouldn't even notice.
    But I would notice A, so I'll say A.
