Ill bite: Because they are americans.

Heres the truth about americans: Americans cannot picture Blacks beeign civilized, i mean it has never happened in history so i dont blame them.
Americans however are also driven by the idea to be politically correct and not trigger the negros.

So what do they do? Do they make a block on africa? something they have done previously when they were less interrested in not offending anyone?
No they wont, because that would have to show africans as what they are: primiitves.

So instead, they inject them into european cultures, thus allowing themselves to appear progressive without having to reveal the truth: Africa is a shit tier continent that has never ammounted to anything that isnt Egypt.

Well meme'd

Even if the Romans brought coloured people into Western Europe which doesn't make much sense to begin with (why hire mercenaries from the East and bring them north when you can hire Germans in the North to fight in the North).

Auxiliaries would be recruited close to where they were fighting.

Either way, even if some coloured folk existed in Western Europe during the Roman period they wouldn't stay there for long let alone settle there for generations in enough numbers to remain "coloured" for long.

They don't make sense in any period set before say 1800AD (maybe a bit earlier) when Europeans brought them there as exotic courtiers.

Also OP asked his question in regard to Central Europe, an area Rome could never exert significant direct influence and an area that never had significant colonial holdings until the late 1800s.

I mean, who is that girl and is she relevant?

I can't find any cards or characters in Innistrad that are dark skinned. So I mean, am I just ignorant and she has a background and a reason for being there, maybe she is from another plane or something?

Alternatively, they just put a black person in some flavour art to jazz it up since they're working with a very bleak palate. Intentionally.

Having someone with black skin & features allows them to pull the colour scheme reversal with the white armour without breaking the tone of the piece, and it's appears designed to draw attention to the centre where Sorin is without taking the focus away from him. What's the term, contrast yeah. You can see they've balanced it out with the white smoke/clouds in the background on the right, It's a clever way to have it framing Sorin without overexposing the background, instead by having it on separate layers it provides the illusion of depth.

Additionally, Sorin is a planeswalker. Not sure at what point in time this picture is, but regardless having a servant or subordinate who has a unique appearance and speaks an unknown tongue and claims origin in an unknown land, just adds to his mystique and general air of "Spoopy Vampire Lord" that has seen strange sights, fought stranger beasts, and done this in lands that are beyond strange altogether and would never be believed to exist if there wasn't proof of it walking around and talking.

Or it could have been some pandering, maybe they saw the article about Huffpo's staff diversity and said "Shit Jim, tossing some ladies in there isn't enough, make one of them black. Not like scary or alien black, like pick an famous Black American black."

Seems like a really small detail to care about though, and kind of discredits a lot of arguments you use against it being there that are more appropriate to apply to, say, the Jaycetice Team.

Wait, no disregard that I suck cocks. Had one in my mouth right then while pausing for dramatic effect and I'm still not as big a faggot as you.

Exploration of Sub-Saharan Africa began in the 15th century. They actually called it the Age of Exploration. Ironically not because they didn't know about Africa or black people, but because the interior of sub-saharan Africa had yet to be thoroughly explored and only the Muslim conquest of Sudan that opened it up. You ever see a Sudanese person? Getting pretty dark.

There had been Arab slaving going on since pretty much forever, but it really kicked into gear with Islam. The kingdom of Nubia, named for the Noba people who migrated there in 4th century BC and are the current ethnic majority, was actually a Christian Kingdom. It survived all that time to the present even, although it's now called Ethiopia.

So the Muslim Caliphates were interacting and enslaving Africans for centuries. But would they sell to central Europe?

Let's talk about Wallachia. You know, part of Romania now with Transylvania and Moldovia. Wallachia came under the control of the Pechenegs, a swarthy people known for worshiping Islam and being Turkish.

So yeah, it's concievable that during the location and time in real life that Innistrad is based on, not just Africans but Negroids from African kingdoms could have been present there.

All of this is ignoring explorers, envoys, adventurers of circumstance or wealth, preachers and religious pilgrims seeking truths in distant places that have always popped up randomly.

No, there never were any significant or established Negroid communities or colonies that I know of. But there were individuals present, and the place you would see them would be at courts as a novelty, or because of their exceptional or unique skills, or in mercenary bands, or with goods to trade, or being entertained by the Church as pilgrims, or argue with as heathens, or to get them to accept missionaries etc.

See that is a better argument, than a convoluted explanation of African civilizations (the only ones who'd make frequent contact would've been the Aksum, despite their trade relations I really doubt the Jewish and Christian population would've been welcomed with open arms through the Islamic world.

>>49110207
The worst thing about this, is that they are technically correct. There were many African Empires that were at times much more wealthy and powerful and educated than European nations. Hell, the Mali empire had the worlds first constitution, and memory and rumors of it's peak made it into a semi-mythical place. Seriously, you know you've heard of Timbuktu. Do you remember where? It was a pretty fucking big deal back in the Victorian ages to the point that people tried to argue that "Aliens did it".

So many actual Empires and successes to use as role models and as a substitute for personal pride and achievement. All wrecked by Muslim conquests and slavers.

Ethiopia for crying out loud was never even colonized. I mean, Italy tried to colonize them so it's not like they fought they big boys like Britain or France or Spain or Russia, but still.

They were wealthy, stable, low corruption and educated. And also happily conquering and genociding their neighbours with just as much gusto if not more than European colonizers. Got fucked up in WWII though, and decided to try going back to ethnic cleansing afterwards instead of continuing to modernize. But I digress.

Instead of actually learning history and using the many appropriate examples, American Blacks instead try to insist that they were somehow significant or responsible for development in Europe. In an especially ironic twist, this is a very popular viewpoint among black Muslims, members of the very same faith of Islam that was responsible for destroying so many of the Kingdoms and establishing the slave trade as a norm in Africa.

Hey man, my first argument about why the character would be there was this post >>49110061.

It's not even a card or has an identity beyond being the black chick in this art piece (that I know of).

I just want people to actually know what they're talking about, because there are defensible arguments to be made for having a black person present in the lore, both in relation to the actual possibilities in the lore and for meta-reasons about maintaining the "flavour" of the settings.

Like, you could argue that it wasn't unusual for there to be people from really fucking far away present in medieval courts, or mercenary armies, occasionally as slaves or servants captured or gifted to travelers and traders. Maybe not a whole lot, but enough that the existence of black people was known among the classes that had access to education, and would be involved in trade and politics. So it would be stranger for there to be no travellers at all, much less a Noble Court not having a couple exotic travellers. Don't like admiting it matches the meta-flavour? Lore states the entire plane is Vampires and white people because no sun or whatever? Good thing there's fucking PLANESWALKERS, look there's one right there. Non-planeswalkers can even sometimes travel planes, there's magic and technomagic and lost forgotten devices and strange horrifying devices and wizards everywhere with no sense of right or wrong.

Turns out History is a science, and it's changing as we get more data. Egypt used to be considered a major empire, incredibly powerful as a military, cultural, and economic force. Because they wrote a lot of records and those are what we found. Now that we've found more of their contemporaries writings, we see that they are more consistent with each other than with Egyptian records. Yeah, ancient Egyptians pretty much lied their faces off and were much less . . . everything, than we believed. That's some "We Wuz Kangs" shit that went on for 2000 years.

I'm not talking about them in Europe I'm talking about them getting there, through that large, racist, slave mongering fundamentally Islamist territories in between. Plus getting across into Christian lands where racial tensions and xenophobia are high.

Again, it reeks of bullshit. Just because there were trade routes between Asia and Europe doesn't mean I'll let someone play a pissed of Irishman in a game set in Feudal Japan, sure one could've possibly got there but it still feels more like someone who just doesn't care for the setting.

Ironically there was a significant number of Jews there thanks to Alexander, who retain a separate continuous identity to this day.

I never argued significant. But the ones that did go would be dis-proportionally represented due to both rarity as well as the different views of identity regarding ethnicity and culture. Nationalism wasn't really a thing for most of history, and even when it was there were important and significant differences in how it was expressed and defined.

Like when people say Greece was a democracy just like America. No, Greek democracy was direct democracy instead of representational at one point, then representational, than Roman. Ignoring the fact that only Citizens could vote, and citizenship was only available to Men, who weren't slaves, and lived in the Polis, with other qualifiers such as a minimum amount of individual wealth, or taxes paid instead, or political affiliation and participation.

Hell, American Democracy has changed drastically and several times alone but most people don't know that.

So you can't assume that Medieval Gentry and cultures would react the same way as we would to foreigners from other nations or ethnicities. Definitely not race, because that didn't exist as a recognizable concept back then for people.

It would be far more important about the wealth and social status of the person regardless of their culture or appearance. It was assumed that men who ruled did so by divine right and inherent superiority. Sure that got messy at times like with the Crusades and Islamic expansion, but even then it was more about religious affiliation than and intrinsic quality. Better to break bread with a Persian that had converted, than a Frank who had lapsed in his devotion, or embraced a heretical creed.

Added complications are that the term Moor was used inconsistently for only northern non-Negroids, but also for just any African.

Dwarf in an Elven city? Clearly he was on a quest to help his cousin reclaim his ancestral treasure and home from a foe that had driven them out in his fathers day. Partially for greed, partially for glory, partially to avenge his father who disappeared with some others who had been broken by the tragedy, leaving behind only a note that promised they would redeem themselves and scattered writings about secret doors, ancient oaths and possible allies who abandoned them and were not to be trusted again.

At some point, they journeyed unknown through Elven territory and offended the King first by disrupting his court, next by refusing to explain their presence, third by claiming debt for they were one of the allies that did failed them first when they were attacked, second when they needed and were refused refuge, and a third time when they offered no aid or hand towards the Dwarves vengeance and return to their ancestral home.

This cousin of the King uncrowned, a true friend and companion in this dangerous task that held no surety of success or even survival, much less reward, was nonetheless there for love of his cousin and fellow dwarves. for love of his King Uncrowned but still of noble bearing and demeanor, for love of his people and the wonders they had built and left behinid, and of their future. This dwarf who had not just lust but love blinded an elf maiden who saw it shine.

While he had to leave behind the city and the maiden, she managed to talk to him about what she saw, and when he answered they found themselves sharing love between them as well.

Now his quest is done, there was loss but also success, and while riches and status there were his to claim he could only do what he had always done and followed his love back to the city.

And there he stayed. Rough, crude by their standards, a dull stone among fair and shining folk, none could send him off because beside him for love the Maiden blazed fairest of all, of any ever seen.

> Implying Arabs and Muselmen and Moors in Northern Africa didn't enslave blacks in the sub-saharan and sell them off back in the cities to work as if they were beasts.

> Trying to obfuscate the fact that these Muslim cultures and states were the ones who established that people who weren't from Abrahamic religions weren't people but beasts and that slavery of sub-saharan Africans was their natural state, and that they weren't just different from them culturally or ethnically, but intrinsically as a matter of spirit and body.

The reason they were present then and are present now is because Islam is a crap fanfiction of the Torah made by a SJW with all the hypocrisy and fear of criticism as well as the kind of murder modern SJWs wish they could use to convert or silence others.

And since it was used by and on Arabs, they pretty much used it to justify being cunts. They view relationships as being tiers of opponents that only ally against greater foes.

"Me against my brother. Me and my brother against our father. My family against the tribe. The tribe against the other tribes, and all of us tribal groups against the cities, the nation against the other Muslim nations, and all of Islam against the world. We were all of us alone at all times, and without an enemy to stand together against we were unable to turn our back to each other."

Ever wonder why North Africa and the ME is shit? Arabs can't help but backstab each other if they see weakness. Israel won because nobody was willing to pull troops from their allies borders for fear of invasion, within the nations the rulers steal with one hand and point at Israel, America, and other Arabs with the other and say "They are why".

Oh, was there ever bitching.

But yeah, he's the youngest and surprises her that he can be charming and witty with words, she's never before met a dwarf and was prejudiced but like in an ignorant way not a malicious or "I went to school in a dwarf majority district and got beat up every day for having pointy ears' or "I'm a meth-head redneck elf that's on the bottom of the totem pole, and has no actual skills, assets, or achievements of value. But at least I'm better than a dwarf, and I'll justify that by intrinsic elf qualities that I pick, because if I compare myself to other elves, or dwarves on anything except how elvish they aren't, then I'll lose."

I believe they ended up together at the end of the movie, when the elves come to extort, er, claim a share of treasure for the dwarves trespassing and shit.

You're all forgetting that Innistrad is not Earth, and shares neither its geography nor history.

Traders from Nephalia could easily be swarthy foreigners from a far-off land, and settle in on the coast, or migrate further inland after a generation or two.

This is a continent where "christianity" was founded and widely instituted about a thousand years ago, and the primary tenants of the religion involve the eradication of non-human monsters. Literally any normal human is met with far less suspicion once you can confirm they're not a vampire or werewolf.

Huh, checked and Gimli is from Lord of the Rings trilogy, not Hobbit.. Also checked the whole movie thing and honestly probably the best way to end it. Kili still dies, and her character doesn't stick around.

Seems more like they made her character to add depth to the Elves since they were really kind of bit players in the Hobbit, but make up so much of the settings lore and backstory. And slapped a romantic subplot in for efficiency because there wasn't one, but it would take away from any of the actual main characters, and Fili and Kili and Bombadur were the only dwarves given individual treatment. Bombadur was a fat fuck for comic relief, and I guess they just flipped a coin for Fili or Kili.

Given Gimli's stalker level worship of Galadriel and his request for her hair as a reward, I guess there's some precedent for Dwarves and Elves usually being incompatible but having "the exception that proves the rule, opposites attract:" thing happen.

Fuck off Swede. You cowardly shits didn't lift a finger to defend us. The volunteers that came from Sweden for the most part, had Finnish ancestry, and you fucks blocked Britain's attempts at sending us food aid etc during the war.

And even if you actually committed to our aid, it still would hardly make up for the CENTURIES of shit you did to my people. You fucks nearly erased our ancestral culture completely (it is a small miracle Kalevala was even collected because for the most part, people who remembered our ancestral folklore and poems were all dead by that point), oppressed us, used us as cannon fodder, taxed us to near starvation, burned our houses down for not learning your language, took our few natural resources (tar for example) for your own use and in general, treated us little better than how Europeans treated the people of their colonies in africa.

Why should I be grateful for anything you fucks did? Had you not lost us to Ruskies, Finns no longer would probably exist as their own distinct group of people, because you fucks were doing your best to prevent us from having any identity of our own, as anything other than vassals of Swedes.

No, I do not, because most whites in America never owned slaves, and not all slaves were black either. I also don't really give a shit, because murrican issues are not issues that largely affect my homeland and people.

I don't believe that Swedes should repay us Finns anything. I don't believe in children having to pay for the crimes of their ancestors. However, neither do I believe in the idea that we should just forget history, and how our own ancestors were treated by others. Remembering our history is the first step in safeguarding our future.

Mali, Songhai, Sokoto, Ethiopia, Great Zimbabwe, that's just off the top of my head.

Yes. It was called Mirage, set in a continent called Jamuraa. Admittedly the last set in the block, Weatherlight, did not take place there; however the last block of the "Mercadian Masques" set, Prophecy, did.

Arguably Caliman, the setting of Portal: Second Age, as well. While the Alaborn people were white, the Talas ranged from olive-skinned to outright black.

>because that would have to show africans as what they are

Except that Mirage didn't do that. Suq'ata, Zhalfir, and Femeref were large, basically stable empires that were technologically *ahead of* other places on Dominaria: the Prophecy novelization shows that they make use of airships (as in, hot-air balloons and dirigibles, not magical ones) and primitive gunpowder-based rocket weapons, whereas Benalia in Invasion is shown to still make use of crossbows, spears, and swords. Coupled with the Talas mentioned above being prolific gunpowder users, and the suggestion seems to be that dark-skinned peoples invented gunpowder on Dominaria (if Dominaria has a China-equivalent, we don't know anything about it to determine if they invented it first)

>>49109856
Good thing that Innistrad isn't set in Medieval Europe, then. For one thing, the clothing and technology is broadly more in line with 17th century Europe, save the lack of gunpowder. For another, it's not fucking Europe. It's a different world with different development.

Huh. Oddly enough, there were very few noticeable foreigners when I was there. I mean, it WAS December/January. But for 3 weeks, that's a decent amount of time. And I didn't do any tourist shit, just hung out and met people.

Some drinking at the bars, a lot of drinking in apartments. Christmas and New Years drinks were pretty fun, Gloggi and a hard liquer that tasted like mint chocolate and was warmed up. And possibly mixed with chocolate milk. Best night for sure, met dude and his wife at a smoke cart? Covenient shack that sold cigarettes and Kebab and was kind of portable but had walls, but no engine? Anyways, went back to their apartment that was in the adjacent building. Lots of nice courtyards there. They showed off their home bar full of different booze. Then despite them moving the next day we did a bunch of speed, which kind of shocked me since pretty much nobody was interested in drugs there, and then his wife got all touchy and kissed me and maybe it was supposed to be a thing? I mean, her husband was right there. Good looking, no kids, young, but I don't know what the scene was like there and if this was a kind of "in private it happens" or "Drunk and stoned affection comes out but doesn't mean anything" or what. So I just kind of was like "Hey, have a hug, you and your husband are fucking cool people and I like you too," Then she was all "I'm tired, bedtime." so I figure either I missed a fun thing, or I avoided a bad thing.

But yeah. Drugs and Drinking and at least a nice ego boost. Tried to contact them to help move because I offered, and if I offer I follow through. But they never replied again so I guess shit was sketchy after all.

A system designed to keep poor people down. The fact that most minorities are poor is just another thing that's being exploited by the rich to keep us fighting amongst ourselves, instead of cutting the fat ones down to size.

So, which part of Finland are you from roughly?

If you're 23, then you should be well past mandatory service. Did you end up doing military or civil if I could ask?

I just find it interesting. A lot of Finns seem to not be resentful about Swedens history with them, like you, but still are very hostile to working too closely with them. For instance despite Swedish being the second official language, more menus were in Finnish and English without any Swedish at all. Almost everyone under 50 spoke excellent English as well, yet few people seemed to speak Swedish. And there was definitely the opinion that the Swedish couldn't much less were willing to learn Finnish.

Actually pretty much everybody had to mention how cumbersome Finnish was, and that it was to a ridiculous degree. But they were so proud of it after Sweden trying to wipe it out that they spoke it almost out of spite.

Any ways, you seem to have some very common positions. Do you feel like it's a mainstream position in Finland?

Are you optimistic about economic growth? Almost everyone I talked to seemed to think that there was just no available opportunity to be had, but when I looked at the numbers for not just Finlands economic growth, but small business success rate and numbers, real purchasing power, employment after finishing education etc. it seemed that while for instance unemployment was kind of high and stable, it was because people were staying in school longer or going back to school as adult students to re-train after getting laid off, and that the rate of people finding employment afterwards was significantly higher than what was reflected by the current unemployment rate.

So, it seemed that although there was high unemployment people weren't staying unemployed, just cycling through.

This was 3 years ago, have things continued or stagnated? The government was really pushing small businesses with loans and courses and financial advising to organize it, that still a thing?

And better demographics to market that kind of self-improvement to as well.

I mean, for the Urban (wink) market you want to sell shit that makes you LOOK successful. Rims on everything, high maintenance limited editions, shit like that.

But the point is, people will still find the poor white dude to have less confrontational body language in the same pose. Look more friendly or trustworthy. Be more likely to initiate conversation, approach them for help, remember personal details like names or places and people mentioned in conversation.

It was pretty overhwelming for concluding that White Americans are more comfortable talking to someone in poverty than they are a Black man from a top socio-economic demographic. They even assign different values to indicators of class, a poor white guy wearing cheap clothing that doesn't match or is poorly fitted gets responses like "Working, just got off work" or "Maybe he looks like he might be sick" or weirdly "On vacation/day off"

Black men get responses like "He's drunk/high" or "He's homeless"

In addition to rating black men with lower class appearance.

Black mean with wealthy appearance, good teeth and skin, tailored suits, nice watches etc get "He seems to be selling something" or that he's "Going out on a date, dressed up" or "Has an interview" stuff like that, where the clothing is assumed to have a purpose in the picture.

White guys get "He seems to be in business, Wall Street or something". "Looks like he's going to work." or "He seems very successful."

Less focus on why he looks that way, more focus on who or what he does and more positive assumptions, greater trust response etc.

Which was expected, but the same kind of results for the poorly dressed white guy was a surprise.

And of course I did military service, like any able bodied man should. I don't think much of civil service.

The reason for why most Fins are not as resentful towards Sweden due to our mutual history, is probably largely because our history teaching does not really focus on the fact how horridly the Swedes treated us and in a way, almost white washes that part away, only praising how Swedes brought laws, Christianity, and built cities etc, but fails to mention how abysmally they treated us.
Mandatory Swedish is also one of the reasons for that resentment. Swedish speaking Finns are a tiny minority, yet because of them, every Finn has to learn swedish, even if the place they are living has zero Swedish speaking people.
It is fucking bullshit.

>But they were so proud of it after Sweden trying to wipe it out that they spoke it almost out of spite.
And why wouldn't we? It is OUR language. It is an instinctive part of our culture, and has been shaped by the land we have been living on for countless generations. Why wouldn't we be proud of it, and cherish it? It was one of the inspirations for Tolkien's elvish too.

>Do you feel like it's a mainstream position in Finland?
Sorta. Most Finns do not like foreigners, especially ones who come here and disrespect us (which is virtually all of the current refugees), all that much. However, most seem to be more apathetic towards our history, and the relative fragility our continued existence as a people is founded on. The idea that shit could hit the fan, and we might be under a mortal threat as a people at some point due to either internal, or external threats, seems to be something most people don't even consider.

Yeah, I noticed that people's Swedish in Finland is like French in Canada. Excluding Quebec, you still have to learn it in school. It becomes option in junior high though, and even when people learn all through to graduation even they still forget after a few years without using it.

I also would say that while people in Finland weren't very confrontational about Immigration, the general opinion was very negative, mostly for the reasons you mentioned. I don't know if it's apathy exactly since they seem to be proud of Finland in a large part because of how it was treated in the past like a colony and oppressed.

It felt more to me that people felt it was the governments job to handle that, and were more likely to complain about or to the government then directly confront the issue.

Actually from what people said it was being dealt much more proactively in smaller towns where people had closer relationships, The guy Jonni showed me an article about african Muslims having inappropriate contact with teen girls, like 13-14 and while some dumb bitch first was all "It's not inappropriate, they are just friendly" but in some town by Porvoo got together and pretty much had a watch organization harass them if they tried to do that or hang out with their kids.

Weird they didn't go after young boys, hey?

So there's hope. Maybe people will start to form groups to lobby or haahahahaha Finns in groups. Not while sober at least.

It's a shame the economy isn't improving. I am seriously considering living there longer term under a work visa. I don't know about citizenship, Canada is honestly a pretty good place. But my time in Finland was like . . . everything was of similar quality, a little bit older and worn architecture but public services were generally better.

>it could abolish Swedish as a required language whenever it wants to.

You'd think so, but no.
For one little reason; RKP, or the "Swedish' People's Party".
It is the party that virtually ALL Swedish speaking Finns vote for, and that party's singular agenda is to keep mandatory Swedish in school (and other politics that benefit the Fennoswedes), and virtually all governments par the current one have accepted that party into the government, because RKP goes along with whatever politics as long as their Fennoswede agenda is kept going.

They are the whore of our politics, and the spiritual founder of that party was a Fennoswede supremacist who thought that Finnish speaking Finns are lower tier humans, and that Fennoswedes should rule.
A lot of Fennoswedes still live in a self imposed apartheid, where they avoid dealing with the majority of Finnish speaking Finns unless absolutely necessary. They keep their kids separate from Finnish speaking ones straight from the Kindergarden, to University.

Fuck the Fennoswedes.

Unfortunately, Finns aren't very confrontational people. We tend to avoid drama if we can, and just grumble under our breath, and clench our fist, if something or someone angers us.
Unless we are drunk of course.

That's why so many of them move to the cities when they can.

I'm not gonna argue that tribe mentality isn't a thing. It's true that stereotypes about race will always come through, but that's not exclusive to whites, blacks, or anyone else - it's a fundamental human need to feel superior to your fellow man, and race is only one of the easier ways to do that. Check for race, because if they look totally different from you they're definitely not of your tribe and therefore inferior. Then check for class, because if they're less successful than you they're inferior. Then check for accents, nationality, ancestry - and so on, until superiority can be comfortably achieved, no matter how much cognitive dissonance you need to get there. Saying that this is a Black vs. White issue is misguided - it's a problem with the whole human race. Acknowledging the social, evolutionary, and cultural differences between our races is the first step in putting those things aside - to destroy the upper class.

My point isn't that racism isn't an issue, my point is that it's so build into who we are as people trying to be rid of it entirely is pointless. Casual racism, and how you percieve others, isn't going to bring down our civilization. Widening income disparity and an increasing disregard for the quality of life of the average American are what will be our downfall.

I'm also aware that there are better ways to make money, I was simply going for the easiest comparison I could thing of - Oprah.

Anyways, I would like to try it. I have a pretty diverse education and skillset, history of legal surveying and drafting in an engineering office, only 2nd year carpentry (4 here to be a journeyman) but honestly I switched to repairing and refinishing furniture and antiques because much better work, better money but less work so it evened out just I had more time off. Now i manage a sleep lab, and there's a lot of similar issues with Canada and Finlands light exposure and sleep issues and the relation to mood disorders etc.

There's only like 11 sleep labs in Finland, most of them in Helsinki, so it's definitely underserved, and from what I've read it's heavily split between research and dealing mainly with urgent sleep apnea or complicated sleep apnea because of the small numbers. There are more respiratory clinics but those are really not relevant to what I do.

So yeah, we looking at maybe opening Turku instead of Helsinki. Still good weather on the coast, bigger population, close enough to Helsinki to have patients there.

Deal with less urgent stuff, not research but patients who have fatigue and insomnia and NRS, mood disorders & chronic pain, absent clinical evidence of OSA.

Anyways, I'd move there for pleasure, but I would definitely make money.

I have to say, if you are looking at future careers, tertiary health care is a great place to go.

Like I said, I've been looking into it, Private health clinics are seeing lots of growth and support from the Government in Finland right now. It's single payer so you have to invoice set fees according to Kelas fee schedule for reimbursement. It seems like a raw deal at first, since you have to pay your own overhead and salary for yourself and staff, utilities, equipment leasing (often you can only lease medical equipment instead of actually purchasing it. Guarantees that a) You can't continue to use obsolete equipment that is no longer safe or effective enough to be part of common practices, and b) that said equipment is always being serviced and used in good condition. There's more about upgrades and obligation to service equipment that meets minimum standards while it still works even after it's no longer supported, so they only force upgrades occasionally.)

But the trick is you have more leeway with Triage, so you can see patients faster, see patients that are less complicated - usually you only see medically stable patients. You don't exactly see less severe patients in general, but that doesn't really affect you. Increased severity just means more appointments for chronic/treatment resistant problems. Anything severe enough to be less profitable will pretty much need the hospital anyways since it's unlikely they'll be medically stable still.

So yeah. Help people who aren't dying like the hospital patients, but are still suffering and at risk of losing jobs or developing complications etc. and helping them get better before that happens. Feels good, patients appreciate the option, you reduce stress on the public system, make better money and have a more intimate and flexible work environment. No bullshit with inter-department drama or unions protecting shitty workers, much quicker process to provide niche treatments or tests, or do research for fun.

> Thinking black people are in the 1%

Not even Will Smith is in the 1%. You know who the 1% is? The motherfucker that signs his paychecks.

Comedy aside, I reiterate - Quality of Life wasn't what was being examined, it's pretty fucking obvious a rich black person will have better healthcare, stuff, time, security, education etc. than a poor white dude.

What was examined and tested for was to see if increased socio-economic ranking based on income, education, community, all that shit was enough to counter out negative (not hostile necessarily) responses such as discomfort or lower trust scores or uncertainty and all that would be expected in response to race.

Like, for Asians I'm pretty sure there would still be some racism, but since they're more often seen in successful positions and higher socio-economic brackets then a more positive response would be expected for a successful Asian the same age and build than for a poor whiter person, same age/build. Would higher socio-economic status in THAT case affect negative responses enough to make SE status more important than race?

Or would it be like that black dude who despite all that still has to buy and wear a pair of weak reading glasses to help put people at ease.

Heck, even /pol/ wouldn't try to say that isn't true. Just whether it was justified by the actions and culture of the black community instead of some sort of organized or deliberately perpetuated institutionalized discrimination.

Your meme is more about globalization and motivation for immigration, not really relevant to discussion about measuring discrimination against African-Americans as a factor of their SE position versus their ethnicity.

Your meme is also wrong, you never want mass emigration from your nation. People end up taking wealth, and rarely are actual threats removed, far more likely it's the few people with half a brain that don't want to be left with the dregs.

It's less "tribe" mentality I think, and more the fact that African-Americans perpetuate an identity based a culture that a) assumes to speak for all black people, even non-American ones lol. and b) Establishes itself not only as separate from White Culture, but goes on to define itself in large part by it's differences and establish authenticity by how unlike White culture it is. Stuff like "Once your white friend uses slang you know it's not cool anymore. Whitey got it, goddamn now I have to come up with something else to mean "Looks good" Jamal did it last time, he really hit it with "On point". How can I follow that up. I mean, last time it was my turn I panicked and went with "Stupid" because I tried to say "Warp Engaged" but said that too quiet from anxiety and then called myself Stupid! and that's what they heard!

Yeah, I referenced Masa Musa earlier in fact. Crashed the economy of Arabic nations.

> What rekt them was isolationism followed by slave trade

I mean, yes that is part of it. Slave trade committed by the Arab nations who were also Muslim as part of their invasion of Mali from Morocco. Okay, technically it was the Songhai nation that got invaded, but it didn't exist until it gained independence - - - - from Mali! And was promptly invaded and wrecked.

This was what ended Mali's position as a trading crossroads, not a policy of "Isolationism" so much as "Isolation" due to aggression by Muslim dynasties claiming descent from Mohammed. I believe Morocco was a Caliphate independent of the Ottoman Empire at this time.

So yeah, Muslim nation under Islamic rule and law weakens internally, begins to break up and part of it secedes and gains independence, fellow Muslims (ARABS) immediately take advantage and wreck them, taking slaves and resulting in the remnant empire being a backwater not worth conquering or producing much of value after losing ownership and access to the main trading hub that had been the major source of their wealth.

Even then, you can't discount the worst famine in their history that happened right before the scramble for Africa (gee, what a coincidence of timing). It was so bad that people sold themselves as slaves. I mean, tons of people still died, half of Timbuktu.

So yeah. The main things that really fucked Africa weren't really related to colonialism and whatnot.

It was Islam, and the slave trade it institutionalized as an economic thing. Despite Islam only allowing enslavement as part of war and never other Muslims, or being born to a slave,

Arabs. Aside from Islam, Arabs are dicks. Note the guys ignoring the obligations and restrictions on slaving people were Arabs. Slaver in Islam comes from them, mostly because Arabs without slavery was an impossible dream, and pretty much any changes could only be improvement it was so bad

And yeah, the third thing that fucked Africa hard was the massive famine that happened in the 1800s. Just like America was discovered and even colonization attempts were made, it was not successful until one occurred right after a massive depopulation event occurred, weakening if not collapsing empires and nations, causing trade to come to a halt and the breaking away of previously subjugated people, or opportunistic creation of "border kingdom" equivalent by groups identified more strongly as separate from the main or ruling group, whether by ethnicity or religion or culture or region.

Even colonizing savages is hard when there's so many of them.

Look at South America. No plague there, just a massive empire that was oppressive and brutal and whose ruling elite segregated themselves from the nations under their rule and treated them quite poorly.

The Conquistador's had to play that one smart, play different tribes off each other so they would revolt but not form a new single group to fight, and instead be divided and conquerable with help from other tribes that didn't realize or think they would be next.

Well, like I said.

You also go there with a plan to be productive, either bringing skills or significant assets to the table - ideally both - when asking to emigrate.

I mean, I'm not even thinking about citizenship right now. See how it actually goes, if just enjoy it or if I actually identify with and come to prefer Finland, but also if I can be successful not at integrating but with a career. I mean, I really feel there's both opportunity and a need for growth in my current career there. So right now I'm still doing my thing here in Canada, building success and saving up, preparing to be able to have a reasonable shot at success in building a business in Finland while the conditions for it are still good, initial start-up cost wise regarding getting a location and equipment but also being able to operate ideally for a year but a minimum of 6 months before showing a profit. From experience, it can take a while for you to get enough patient flow through a sleep lab, partially due to low awareness and education among not just patients and sufferers of sleep disorders, but also general practitioners such as family doctors about the existence, let alone when to recommend or how to utilize sleep specialist services.

As well, the testing is more involved than most, requiring at least 6 hours of sleep and as such is usually an overnight commitment, as well reimbursement can sometimes take a while to work out. Canada is easy, Finland seems easy as well thanks to single payer. But you never know until you talk to health board. They might only cover so many studies per year, or only allow referrals from specific doctors or health facilities, stuff like that.

I wish some of you were here to have a beer and talk about this, I get excited. Also currently I'm injured and healing, so this is like my socialization lately. Yaaaay.
