I keep wanting to participate in this sub because intersectional conversations are really important to me in every aspect of my life, even in regard to reality TV. But it honestly hurts coming on this sub and seeing that most of the mod criticism involves other POC questioning my race.

I so sorry you are dealing with this, missing weddings has honestly been one of the worst things about the residency schedule we dealt with. We actually missed me SIL (husband younger sister) wedding this summer (it was a very, very small COVID wedding but still) and I still feel terrible about it.
