For various reasons, the suicide rates in my home country (United States) are at their highest number in half a century. Those most impacted by this are white, middle aged, men who are killing themselves in greater number than any other group. Matter of fact, white men as a group, continue to kill themselves in greater and greater numbers each year. I didn't know this was happening til I saw this article. Our society is as divided as it's been since the Civil War in many ways. Middle aged white men have been hit hard by the shifting global economy. Too many skills and not enough technical education has caused massive job displacement and the result seems to be a steady increase in suicide. This is a sobering statistic. have you guys heard about this?

I think led by if your a white man in america , you are deemed scum of the earth, everything bad that has happened is caused by white man and since society doesn't let them talk about anything ( no outlet for relieving stress ) , what do you think is going to happen
