Canada / Toronto : Quand la Covid-19 touche d’abord les plus pauvres
Des données récemment publiées montrent comment le virus s’est répandu dans la ville de Toronto, avant de s’emparer des populations les plus pauvres. Les autorités ont souligné que « nous étions tous dans le même bateau ». Mais pour certains quartiers de la ville, ce n’est pas vrai…
Toronto est sous l’emprise de la Covid-19 depuis plus de six mois, bien que cela puisse sembler une éternité. Le chemin du virus est vraiment sinueux : presque chaque mois a apporté un nouveau bouleversement.


https://preview.redd.it/5vmk6lujo1o51.jpg?width=590&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=475d0ef2a279c3d589476828da5a9f6bbcb4dc3f
En juillet, le service de santé publique de Toronto (TPH) a publié un important ensemble de données : un catalogue de tous les cas signalés dans la ville depuis le premier cas connu fin janvier, soit environ 15 300 au total. Les données d’identification ont été supprimées pour protéger la vie privée, mais chaque cas comprend la tranche d’âge de la personne, son quartier et la source d’infection ; si elle a été hospitalisée, en soins intensifs ou intubée ; si elle s’est rétablie, si elle lutte encore contre l’infection, et plus encore.
Vous croyez peut-être connaître l’histoire de COVID-19 et de Toronto. Mais l’ensemble de données, que le TPH dit avoir publié dans un souci de transparence, contient des révélations sur la façon dont le virus s’est glissé dans Toronto et a pris pied avant de s’attaquer aux résidents et aux quartiers les plus vulnérables. L’analyse de cette mine d’informations par le Star raconte l’histoire inédite de la première vague de l’épidémie – un cauchemar que certains craignent de voir se répéter, si les leçons de ce premier chapitre restent lettre morte.
Le voyage
Chine. Iran. Italie. Dans les premiers jours de la pandémie – lorsque les voyageurs infectés représentaient encore la plus grande menace – ces pays ont suscité des réactions alarmistes, déclenché des conseils aux voyageurs et influencé les personnes qui ont subi le test COVID.
Trois pays ont en effet été responsables de la majorité des premiers cas de voyage à Toronto.
Mais ce n’était pas nécessairement les pays que tout le monde avait supposés au départ. Le premier pays responsable des premières infections de voyageurs était plutôt les États-Unis. Les voyageurs en provenance des États-Unis ont représenté 37 % des cas de voyage à Toronto entre janvier et mars, soit 106 personnes. Pendant les semaines qui ont précédé la fermeture de la frontière, les États-Unis ont constitué la plus grande menace de COVID liée aux voyages.
Le Royaume-Uni a été le deuxième contributeur le plus important, avec 14 % des cas de voyage. Cinq pour cent provenaient de l’Iran. Les infections provenant de toutes les autres destinations, y compris la Chine et l’Italie, ont eu moins de cinq cas chacune au cours de ces trois premiers mois.
« Les autres pays, y compris le sud du pays (et le Royaume-Uni), n’étaient pas dans notre zone de détection des taux élevés de COVID », a déclaré la Dre Vinita Dubey, médecin hygiéniste adjointe au service de santé publique de Toronto. « Nous savons maintenant que les personnes qui sont allées là-bas et qui en sont revenues – ou les voyageurs qui sont venus de ces endroits – ont en fait joué un grand rôle ».
Autre tendance cachée : qui étaient ces premiers voyageurs, et où vivaient-ils ? L’analyse du Star montre qu’un point chaud du centre-ville émergeait déjà silencieusement au moment où les mesures de confinement ont commencé à la mi-mars, le quartier connu sous le nom de « Waterfront Communities-Toronto Island ».
Il comprend des zones comme le Distillery District et les îles de Toronto. Mais la plus grande partie de cette communauté est coincée dans une bande concentrée entre le lac Ontario et Queen Street, y compris le quartier de divertissement King West et les copropriétés CityPlace. Le quartier de Waterfront est jeune et en pleine expansion, en particulier avec des personnes dans la vingtaine et la trentaine.
L’examen des données démographiques sur les infections dues aux voyages dans le Waterfront remet en question les hypothèses initiales selon lesquelles les voyageurs à risque rendaient visite à des amis et à des parents au retour de pays comme l’Iran ou la Chine, a déclaré M. Dubey.
Dans le Waterfront, 71 % des personnes qui ont été infectées lors d’un voyage ont moins de 40 ans.
Ces jeunes voyageurs suivaient les instructions du Premier ministre. La semaine précédant le congé de mars, le premier ministre Doug Ford a exhorté les Ontariens à « partir, s’amuser ». Au cours des deux semaines suivantes, 16 cas de COVID liés à des voyages allaient apparaître dans le Waterfront, soit le nombre le plus élevé parmi les quartiers de Toronto.
À ce jour, plus de quatre mois après la déclaration de la pandémie, le Waterfront est la ville qui compte le plus grand nombre de cas liés aux voyages, et le cinquième plus grand nombre de cas liés aux voyages. (Le taux le plus élevé, qui tient compte de la taille de la population, se trouve dans les quartiers aisés de Bridle Path-Sunnybrook-York Mills).
Le quartier de Waterfront est le plus peuplé de la ville, avec plus de 65 900 personnes au recensement de 2016, il n’est donc peut-être pas surprenant d’y trouver de nombreux cas de voyage. M. Dubey met en garde contre le fait que le nombre de cas de voyage dans le quartier Waterfront est peut-être davantage lié au comportement.
« Est-ce lié à leur âge, car ils sont plus jeunes et plus susceptibles de voyager ? Est-ce parce qu’ils sont plus jeunes et plus susceptibles de se livrer à certaines activités ? demande-t-elle. « Il est très difficile de répondre à cette question. »
On ne sait pas très bien quel rôle ces jeunes voyageurs du centre-ville ont joué dans l’épidémie globale de la ville. En mars, chaque cas de COVID entraînait en moyenne 3,5 nouvelles infections, selon M. Dubey.
Le Waterfront a perdu de son importance en tant que point chaud lorsque les voyages ont cessé d’être la principale source d’infection dans la ville. Le fardeau de la COVID s’est déplacé du centre ville prospère vers les zones plus pauvres en périphérie de Toronto.
Propagation communautaire aux États-Unis fin février, des cas de COVID ont commencé à apparaître chez les Américains qui n’ont pas voyagé ou qui n’ont pas été en contact avec des voyageurs : un signe inquiétant. De tels cas, sans lien épidémiologique, indiquent que le virus se propage localement, via des chaînes de transmission non identifiées.
À Toronto, les journalistes ont commencé à demander si la ville avait enregistré l’un de ces cas « communautaires ». Le docteur Eileen de Villa, médecin hygiéniste de Toronto, a promis d’informer les habitants s’il y en avait.
Le 6 mars, de Villa a déclaré : « actuellement, il n’y a aucune preuve de transmission locale ». Le 12 mars : « Nous ne voyons toujours pas de preuve confirmée de transmission locale. »
Mais le 16 mars, elle a annoncé la nouvelle. Toronto avait vu une recrudescence de cas, « dont certains ne sont pas reliés, et indiquent donc une transmission communautaire. »
La santé publique ne peut agir que sur les cas dont elle a connaissance. De Villa a informé le public très rapidement après avoir été averti : les deux premiers cas ayant une source d’infection « communautaire » signalés à la santé publique de Toronto ont été enregistrés les 12 et 13 mars ; les enquêteurs auraient mis un certain temps à écarter d’autres sources. Le TPH a appris l’existence de quatre autres cas communautaires le 16 mars, le jour où de Villa a confirmé la transmission locale. À l’insu de la direction de la santé publique, la situation était cependant bien plus grave. Le jour de la Saint-Valentin, un mois avant l’annonce de de Villa, une femme d’une trentaine d’années de Trinity-Bellwoods a commencé à présenter des symptômes. Son cas, finalement attribué à une propagation communautaire, n’a été signalé au TPH que le 24 mars, une semaine après les propos de M. de Villa.
Au total, la ville comptait déjà près de 50 cas qui seraient finalement attribués à une propagation communautaire mais qui n’ont été signalés à la santé publique que des jours, des semaines et parfois des mois après l’annonce de de Villa.
Les délais entre l’apparition de ces cas clés et le moment où ils ont été signalés à la santé publique étaient parfois très longs. Peu après l’affaire Trinity-Bellwoods, un homme d’une quarantaine d’années à Humbermede et un homme d’une cinquantaine d’années à Princess-Rosethorn ont attrapé la COVID-19 dans la localité. Ces cas n’ont pas été signalés avant le 6 avril et le 29 mai, respectivement.
La santé publique utilise un terme appelé « date de l’épisode » pour estimer le moment où une infection a été contractée. Si la date d’apparition des symptômes est connue – et elle n’est pas toujours évidente – la date de l’épisode s’y réfère. Lorsqu’une date estimée d’apparition n’est pas disponible, les enquêteurs la remplacent le jour où la personne a été examinée ; lorsque cette date n’est pas connue, ils utilisent le jour où le cas a été signalé à la santé publique.
Pour tous les cas signalés au TPH, l’écart entre la date de l’épisode et la date de signalement s’est réduit au fil du temps. Début mars, la moyenne était de près de 14 jours ; début juillet, de quatre jours seulement. (Ces moyennes excluent les cas avec un écart de zéro jour, dans lesquels la date déclarée a été utilisée pour la date de l’épisode).
Selon M. Dubey, les retards dans la déclaration des cas à la santé publique peuvent avoir plusieurs causes. Les données du TPH de la fin mai suggèrent qu’il s’écoule en moyenne près de cinq jours entre le moment où une personne présente des symptômes et celui où elle se fait tester. Et au cours de ces premiers mois, la province a également restreint les tests de manière très stricte.
Les délais d’exécution des laboratoires ont certainement joué un rôle. M. Dubey a fait remarquer qu’en février et mars, une pénurie de matériel d’essai et un engorgement des laboratoires ont entraîné de longs retards. « Ces retards dans les rapports de laboratoire sont des retards dans le suivi de notre dossier et des contacts ».
Confinement Quand le COVID s’est emparé de la ville à la mi-mars, les fonctionnaires ont brusquement fermé les écoles et les entreprises non essentielles. Ils ont dit à tous ceux qui pouvaient le faire de rester chez eux. Le message était un message d’unité : « Nous sommes tous dans le même bateau. »
Ce n’était pas vrai. Le verrouillage a protégé les quartiers les plus riches et les plus blancs de Toronto, mais pas les plus pauvres et les plus racialisés.
Dans les 20 quartiers les plus blancs et les plus riches de Toronto – où le pourcentage de minorités visibles et de résidents de ménages à faible revenu est le plus faible, selon le recensement de 2016 – les fermetures généralisées ont eu un effet immédiat et durable. Presque instantanément, leur courbe s’est aplatie.
Mais pour les 20 quartiers les plus pauvres et les plus racialisés – avec les pourcentages les plus élevés de résidents de minorités visibles et de personnes à faible revenu – la fermeture n’a fait que peu ou pas de différence. Les cas ont continué à augmenter, et n’ont pas commencé à diminuer pendant deux mois.
Quatre Canadiens sur dix ont un travail qui peut être effectué depuis leur domicile selon Statistiques Canada. La probabilité d’occuper un tel emploi est partagée de manière inégale : les membres des ménages à faible revenu sont beaucoup moins susceptibles de pouvoir travailler à domicile que les ménages à revenu élevé (Et les minorités visibles sont plus susceptibles d’être des travailleurs à faible revenu, selon d’autres recherches).
Ainsi, la fermeture d’entreprises non essentielles était plus susceptible d’avoir l’un des deux impacts terribles pour les travailleurs pauvres : les résidents étaient plus exposés à la perte de leur emploi ; ou plus susceptibles de devoir quitter leur domicile pour continuer à travailler dans des entreprises « essentielles » pendant toute la durée de la fermeture, et de faire face à ce risque d’exposition.
Les données du TPH publiées jeudi confirment la terrible inégalité de la pandémie. L’analyse de ces données, recueillies du 20 mai au 16 juillet, comporte des limites, notamment le fait que 27 % des cas n’ont pas communiqué d’informations sociodémographiques, en particulier ceux qui ont été gravement malades à l’hôpital, et que le nombre de cas reflète des préjugés quant aux personnes ayant accès aux tests.
Néanmoins, les résultats sont frappants. Alors que 48 % de la ville est blanche, seulement 17 % des cas COVID le sont ; alors que 52 % de la ville appartient à une minorité visible, elle représente 83 % des cas COVID. Les personnes faisant partie de ménages à faible revenu représentent plus de la moitié des cas de cette période, mais moins d’un tiers de la composition globale de la ville.
Foyers d’épidémie Le 31 mars, l’épidémiologiste Amy Greer a diffusé un tweet de colère : « Quel genre de muppet show sommes-nous en train de faire ? Je suis sans voix à ce sujet ». Mme Greer, professeur à l’université de Guelph, n’était pas la seule experte en santé à réagir avec incrédulité à une déclaration faite ce jour-là par le médecin hygiéniste en chef de l’Ontario, le Dr David Williams.
Williams a déclaré que les travailleurs de la santé dans les maisons de soins de longue durée n’avaient pas besoin de porter régulièrement des équipements de protection individuelle, tels que des masques, à moins que leur établissement ne connaisse une épidémie de COVID. Il a affirmé que les mesures de santé publique déjà mises en œuvre, telles que le dépistage du personnel et la mise en quarantaine de ceux qui ont récemment voyagé, permettraient d’assurer la sécurité des résidents et du personnel.
Il est impossible de dire à quel point cette politique est responsable de l’horreur qui a suivi.
Le jour où Williams a fait cette déclaration, dix foyers de soins de longue durée en Ontario avaient signalé une épidémie. Au moment où il a fait marche arrière huit jours plus tard et a ordonné le port du masque obligatoire pour le personnel de ces établissements, 58 centres de soins de longue durée étaient en proie à une épidémie. Depuis cette semaine, plus de 325 foyers de soins de longue durée ont une épidémie active ou résorbée.
Huit membres du personnel des centres de soins sont décédés, ainsi que plus de 1 800 résidents.
Environ 75 de ces foyers de maladies infectieuses se trouvent à Toronto. Lorsque l’on dresse la carte des cas associés à l’épidémie – qui, selon la définition du service de santé, comprennent les cas dans les foyers de centre de soins ainsi que dans les maisons de retraite, les hôpitaux, les refuges et autres – cette phase brutale de la pandémie s’intensifie rapidement dans le quartier d’Islington-City Centre Ouest. Les données de la santé publique de Toronto de la fin mai suggèrent qu’il s’écoule en moyenne près de cinq jours entre le moment où une personne présente des symptômes et celui où elle se fait tester. Et au cours de ces premiers mois, la province a également limité les tests à la périphérie ouest d’Etobicoke. C’est là que se trouve le centre de soins d’Eatonville, un établissement de 247 lits, où 184 résidents ont été infectés et 43 sont morts.
Deux quartiers de Scarborough, Rouge et Morningside, suivent de près.
Ces quartiers abritent le centre de soins Altamont et Seven Oaks, où respectivement 53 et 41 résidents sont décédés.
À la fin avril, les militaires ont été déployés à Eatonville, Altamont, Hawthorne Place et Downsview Long-Term Care Centre à North York, ainsi que dans trois autres maisons de soins de longue durée de la région du Grand Toronto.
Le mois suivant, un rapport des forces armées a déclaré que le personnel d’Eatonville ne pouvait pas accéder aux fournitures essentielles, y compris les lingettes, parce qu’elles étaient enfermées ; et a cité une « culture générale de peur d’utiliser des fournitures parce qu’elles coûtent de l’argent », comme les blouses et les gants. À Altamont, l’équipe militaire a soulevé les problèmes de mauvaises pratiques de prévention et de contrôle des infections auprès de la direction de l’établissement, après quoi « le personnel a indiqué qu’il remédierait à ces lacunes ».
Mais si les maisons de retraite et de soins de longue durée de Toronto sont plus densément concentrées dans le centre-ville que dans les quartiers périphériques, la carte de tous les cas associés à l’épidémie est à l’opposé, avec des régions comme le nord-ouest de la ville qui se dévoilent. Les raisons de cette situation ne sont pas tout à fait claires : les foyers où se sont déclarés de graves épidémies sont dispersés dans toute la ville.
Mais cela pourrait s’expliquer en partie par le fait que le personnel de centres de soins de longue durée infecté qui travaille dans un établissement en cas d’épidémie est enregistré par son adresse personnelle et non par son adresse professionnelle.
Certains des quartiers les plus touchés de Toronto par les cas sporadiques (non épidémiques) présentent également les pourcentages les plus élevés d' »aides-infirmiers, d’aides-soignants et d’associés aux services aux patients » – une classification de Statistiques Canada qui inclut les aides-soignants et autres personnels des maisons de soins. (À Toronto, les immigrants représentent 79 % de ce groupe professionnel)
Sans plus de données, il est difficile de dire quel rôle le « feu de forêt » des foyers de soins a joué dans l’épidémie plus importante de Toronto.
Un autre lien est que ces épidémies ont immobilisé les ressources de dépistage pendant des mois ; la province n’a commencé à autoriser tout résident qui le souhaitait à passer un test que le 25 mai, après avoir fait pression pour que tous les employés et résidents des établissements passent un test. La courbe des cas sporadiques de la ville a entamé une trajectoire descendante soutenue cinq semaines après que la courbe des cas associés aux épidémies ait fait de même.
Le quartier le plus touché de Toronto
Début avril, la question devenait urgente : certains groupes minoritaires, en particulier les communautés noires, sont-ils plus exposés à la pandémie ? Les données COVID basées sur la race seraient essentielles pour répondre à cette question. Mais le 10 avril, lorsqu’on lui a demandé s’il allait recueillir ces informations, M. Williams a écarté cette idée.

https://preview.redd.it/e3bwi0xuo1o51.jpg?width=590&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8a58cee259b71cb9900317cee57fe0b54e5588f5
« Au Canada, nous ne collectons pas les cas désignés par leur race à moins qu’il n’y ait certains facteurs de risque », a déclaré le médecin hygiéniste en chef de la province aux journalistes.
Au moment où il s’exprimait, le coronavirus se répandait déjà de manière mortelle dans le coin nord-ouest de Toronto, l’une des zones les plus racialisées et historiquement marginalisées. Cette semaine-là, Mount Olive-Silverstone Jamestown, l’un des quartiers les plus noirs de Toronto, a vu plus de gens tomber malades à cause du COVID que tout autre quartier de Toronto. La semaine suivante a vu des pics dans deux autres quartiers du nord-ouest, dont la communauté Jane-Finch.
Le 6 mai, lorsque M. Williams a fait marche arrière sur la question des données racialisées, le secteur nord-ouest était déjà la région la plus touchée de Toronto.
Les données publiées jeudi par le TPH révèlent que les Noirs représentent le plus grand pourcentage du total des cas, soit 21 %, et que les Latino-américains ont les taux d’infection les plus élevés, soit 481 cas pour 100 000 personnes.
Les 19 quartiers présentant les taux d’infection les plus élevés de Toronto sont tous situés dans le nord-ouest, où vivent certaines des plus grandes communautés noires et latino-américaines de la ville.
Le premier cas documenté de la région est celui de l’homme d’une quarantaine d’années de Humbermede, qui est le deuxième cas d’infection communautaire dans la ville. Il a développé les symptômes le 1er mars, mais le cas n’a été signalé à la santé publique que le 6 avril.
Lors des deux dernières semaines de mars, les nouveaux cas ont commencé à se multiplier dans deux quartiers du nord-ouest de la ville, qui présentent aujourd’hui des taux d’infection parmi les plus élevés de la ville : Downsview-Roding-CFB – qui a enregistré le plus grand nombre de cas hebdomadaires pendant une grande partie du mois d’avril – et West HumberClairville, dans le nord d’Etobicoke, qui compte actuellement le plus grand nombre d’infections liées à des établissements de santé comme les cabinets médicaux ou les centres de dialyse.
Une semaine après la fête des mères, dont certains craignaient qu’elle ne provoque une augmentation des cas, la courbe épidémique des cas communautaires à Toronto a finalement atteint son point culminant et a commencé à décroître.
Mais un quartier du nord-ouest ne s’est pas inscrit dans la dynamique gagnante. À Mount Olive-Silverstone-Jamestown, les cas ont continué à grimper pendant deux semaines avant d’atteindre un pic. Pendant ce temps, plus de 100 habitants de Mount Olive ont été infectés.
On ne sait pas très bien dans quelle mesure ces chiffres sont liés à l’accès aux tests.
Mais aujourd’hui, Mount Olive a le taux d’infection le plus élevé de tous les quartiers – 1 308 cas pour 100 000 personnes. Mount Olive, grossièrement bordé par Steeles Avenue, la rivière Humber et Martin Grove Road, est le quartier du nord-ouest avec la plus forte concentration de minorités visibles et l’une des zones les plus défavorisées de la ville.
De nombreux résidents n’auraient pas eu le luxe de travailler chez eux ; Mount Olive compte la plus forte proportion de personnes travaillant comme caissiers, chauffeurs de camion et ouvriers dans la fabrication de plastiques. Beaucoup d’entre eux ont été considérés comme « essentiels » pendant le confinement.
En même temps, Mount Olive possède également certains des habitats les plus surpeuplés de la ville.
En effet, les données du TPH montrent que Mount Olive a le taux le plus élevé d’infections COVID liées à un « contact étroit » – une catégorie souvent attribuée lorsqu’une personne est infectée par un membre du foyer.
À la date de vendredi, 431 personnes vivant à Mount Olive avaient été infectées. En comparaison, The Beaches a le taux d’infection le plus bas de Toronto, et c’est la troisième communauté la plus blanche. À ce jour, elle a connu 13 cas.
La COVID chez les enfants
Une importante question reste sans réponse, même avec six mois de données sur chaque cas confirmé à Toronto : comment les enfants sont-ils affectés et quel rôle jouent-ils dans la propagation de la COVID ?

https://preview.redd.it/7mro1w60p1o51.jpg?width=590&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=221a7087fddf5a2221a16b83f4e61721884edd97
Cette question devient de plus en plus urgente à mesure que les jours diminuent et que la rentrée approche. Pour Mme Dubey, qui exploite les données de la ville, c’est une priorité, surtout maintenant que les infections se manifestent davantage chez les jeunes.
« L’une des tendances que nous observons est que de plus en plus d’enfants contractent la COVID, mais cela pourrait être lié à la multiplication des tests sur les enfants. C’est difficile à savoir », a-t-elle déclaré. « Je pense que c’est une tendance que nous devons prendre en compte pour l’avenir, surtout lorsque nous parlons de la réouverture des écoles ».
Les fermetures d’écoles ont probablement joué un rôle majeur dans la réduction des infections chez les personnes de 19 ans et moins. Le fait que les enfants ont tendance à avoir une maladie légère ou asymptomatique – associé à une aversion parentale à soumettre les jeunes enfants à des prélèvements nasopharyngés – signifie qu’ils avaient probablement moins de chances d’être testés également.
Pourtant, des centaines d’enfants et d’adolescents ont été testés positifs au COVID à Toronto. Le premier cas confirmé chez les moins de 19 ans a été signalé le 11 mars, alors que les familles se préparaient pour les vacances de mars. La jeune fille du quartier de Dovercourt-Wallace Emerson Junction a été infectée lors d’un voyage et s’est rétablie après une hospitalisation.
Depuis, on a enregistré 963 cas supplémentaires chez des enfants ou des adolescents, la plupart ayant été contractés par un contact direct avec un autre cas confirmé. Et les quartiers les plus infectés dans cette tranche d’âge se trouvent également dans le coin nord-ouest, où six communautés ont connu plus de 33 cas.
Le quartier le plus infecté, Downsview, en a eu 69. Les quartiers où les enfants sont le plus touchés se trouvent également dans le secteur nord-ouest, où six quartiers ont eu plus de 30 cas chacun.
Quatorze enfants ont été hospitalisés à Toronto, trois dans l’unité de soins intensifs et un a été intubé.
Un décès infantile a été enregistré, un enfant de moins de 10 ans de le quartier de l’Annex dont l’infection a été contractée dans un cadre institutionnel. Le TPH a déclaré à l’époque que la COVID n’en était peut-être pas la cause, mais le coroner en chef de l’Ontario mène une enquête.
Ce qui va se passer ensuite avec les enfants fait l’objet d’intenses discussions. Les épidémiologistes et les pédiatres ont des idées différentes – parfois radicalement différentes – sur la façon dont la réouverture des écoles affectera l’épidémie de Toronto, qui est en rémission.
M. Dubey a fait remarquer que les rebondissements du COVID ont été profondément influencés par les mesures de santé publique. La forme et l’ampleur d’une éventuelle deuxième vague et de ce qu’il adviendra de la courbe des cas de 19 ans et moins dépendront en grande partie de ce que décideront les responsables politiques.
« Nous réfléchissons assurément sur les tendances observées lors de la première vague », a-t-elle déclaré. « Mais une fois de plus, nous avons vu la COVID et sa transmission dans notre ville changer, même seulement de février à aujourd’hui. Et nous ne pouvons donc pas vraiment prédire l’avenir ».
La province n’a commencé à autoriser les personnes qui le souhaitaient à passer un test qu’à la fin mai, après avoir fait pression pour que tous les travailleurs et résidents des établissements de soins de longue durée passent un test.

2020.09.19 03:10 areyna1231 Could it really be me that is problematic?

Me female (43) and he male (39)....we aren't married. We have been involved 7 1/2 years. There is so much so im going to try to condense this and still convey a clear pic of the issues. I realize how I am just another stranger on the internet and yall have no way of gauging my sincerity but I want to say how Im not the kind to tell the story where I am the infinite victim who never did wrong to him because i absolutely have....so this isn't self serving is my point . Ok...moving on...7 years ago I was in the throws of a nasty heroin addiction and my once great life had been reduced to couchsurfing and selling sex to support the habit. I didn't get my tricks walking the street but rather i used internet apps...craigslist...backpage and chat lines! (I even laughed that a chat line still exists) . One slow night I was using chat line and i connected w my current boyfriend. We hooked up that same night, cash was exchanged. ...BUT...I felt guilt taking the payment for services because we had thee most insane chemistry and the sex was mindblowing! With other customers I rushed it and was hardly a participant because more often then not with trix I had a revolving door or the men who wanted me to shit on their chest or dress them up like a female...and almost always very unattractive..but with "J" .....lets call my guy "J".....wity him that night i was attracted and we had good convo. I told my sjs the next day how i wanted to see him again but if i did it would only be business and I allowed myself to imagine something more. keep in mind at this time in my life i was desperately yearning for normalcy again and to have a sex life where i enjoyed it and didn't negotiate funds in advance. WELL..J did contact me two days later and told me- not asked- told me I was going to be his girlfriend. LOL...wow....and I was like fuck it....and we were never not together since that day. Obviously I been around and i always remind me on how there is ALWAYS something with a man. A quirk or a kink that surfaces after ur in love....I watched and waited for that shoe to drop. He is basically normal A type latino/severe titty baby about his mom/ snobbish/ GOD fearing 🙄/closed minded sexually/no drink smoke. drugs/no criminal record/ good credit/ respectable/responsible...nothing too bad. We were an odd match. J is the decent dude from a family w some cash...is a male label ho...drives fancy expensive cars and lives in a nice area whereas me....fuck man...did i mention I was a hooker? That says it all. We were polar opposite from where we was from and who we were. I showed him how us poor ghetto folk live and it humbled him. He showed me respect. Never....and rhat isnt an exaggeration...NEVER has he hit me or calked me out my name or threw in my face how we met. Under other circumstances we would not dated. So....7 years we went thru cheating on both ends...threesomes...my relapses and rehab stints....my stays at psych wards (severe PTSD) and my insane insecurities and jealousy thinking how it made no sense he wld want me since I had literally only my few old posessions and me. I knew he loved me. Well..the things that tarnish this lovely pic ive painted...here we go.....he never confessed cheating cause i caught him...he puts his mom before me and. allow her to screwup our plans cause everything is dropped for her...he let me be homeless in the winter sleeping in my car twice cause he wld not have me over cause his mom and him live together.

2020.09.19 03:10 areyna1231 Could it really be me that is problematic?

Me female (43) and he male (39)....we aren't married. We have been involved 7 1/2 years. There is so much so im going to try to condense this and still convey a clear pic of the issues. I realize how I am just another stranger on the internet and yall have no way of gauging my sincerity but I want to say how Im not the kind to tell the story where I am the infinite victim who never did wrong to him because i absolutely have....so this isn't self serving is my point . Ok...moving on...7 years ago I was in the throws of a nasty heroin addiction and my once great life had been reduced to couchsurfing and selling sex to support the habit. I didn't get my tricks walking the street but rather i used internet apps...craigslist...backpage and chat lines! (I even laughed that a chat line still exists) . One slow night I was using chat line and i connected w my current boyfriend. We hooked up that same night, cash was exchanged. ...BUT...I felt guilt taking the payment for services because we had thee most insane chemistry and the sex was mindblowing! With other customers I rushed it and was hardly a participant because more often then not with trix I had a revolving door or the men who wanted me to shit on their chest or dress them up like a female...and almost always very unattractive..but with "J" .....lets call my guy "J".....wity him that night i was attracted and we had good convo. I told my sjs the next day how i wanted to see him again but if i did it would only be business and I allowed myself to imagine something more. keep in mind at this time in my life i was desperately yearning for normalcy again and to have a sex life where i enjoyed it and didn't negotiate funds in advance. WELL..J did contact me two days later and told me- not asked- told me I was going to be his girlfriend. LOL...wow....and I was like fuck it....and we were never not together since that day. Obviously I been around and i always remind me on how there is ALWAYS something with a man. A quirk or a kink that surfaces after ur in love....I watched and waited for that shoe to drop. He is basically normal A type latino/severe titty baby about his mom/ snobbish/ GOD fearing 🙄/closed minded sexually/no drink smoke. drugs/no criminal record/ good credit/ respectable/responsible...nothing too bad. We were an odd match. J is the decent dude from a family w some cash...is a male label ho...drives fancy expensive cars and lives in a nice area whereas me....fuck man...did i mention I was a hooker? That says it all. We were polar opposite from where we was from and who we were. I showed him how us poor ghetto folk live and it humbled him. He showed me respect. Never....and rhat isnt an exaggeration...NEVER has he hit me or calked me out my name or threw in my face how we met. Under other circumstances we would not dated. So....7 years we went thru cheating on both ends...threesomes...my relapses and rehab stints....my stays at psych wards (severe PTSD) and my insane insecurities and jealousy thinking how it made no sense he wld want me since I had literally only my few old posessions and me. I knew he loved me. Well..the things that tarnish this lovely pic ive painted...here we go.....he never confessed cheating cause i caught him...he puts his mom before me and. allow her to screwup our plans cause everything is dropped for her...he let me be homeless in the winter sleeping in my car twice cause he wld not have me over cause his mom and him live together. By the way the mon doesnt like me. Ive never met not 1 friend....he password locks his cell....he has a pic of his car in jis cell as screensaver instead of me. I expressed marriage and he went along letting me look at rings...we talked on living together but that like many things...when it came time to act on them he wld come up witu more hurdles to cross then when i did there wld be more. Finally he said he wont live with me because......................I leave to work at 4am daily and I get in a bad mood too much for his comfort . He wont marry me cause he says its too risky with me struggling with major depression and having episodes at times. These are things he had recently said. the time prior to this one i told him to not be selfish let me go so i can find a man who will marry me etc...he of course fed me crumbs of hope again and i stayed again and now this. I have got clean....kept my job...pay my own bills...stopped smoking...got a handle on my aggression all at his request....remember..i jumped over all those hurdles to show him my commitment and cause i loved him.

2020.09.18 15:36 snaaggz DONE with my mother.

I already took the last straw with her.
To give some background, my mother has always been the evil one. The one that has always wanted me to fail. And not only me, but my older brother too who's future was much brighter when I was younger but ruined by my mother. Me and my brother were raised by my father, who, keep in mind, is not the same father as my brother's. My father didn't care anyway and wanted to raise my brother. Then when I was born, he vowed to raise me as well. However, they divorced when I was around 7 because they were beginning to have a disconnect. When I was older, my father admitted to me when he married my mother he realized he wasn't ready to be with her but did it anyway because she had already been pregnant with me. My father has always been my biggest cheerleader in life and I would say I was framed into his image because I looked up to him. I wanted to be him, and I guess I kinda sorta became him.
I remember the summer after the separation between my parents, my mother and brother got into frequent fights. My brother has battled mental problems his entire life because his real father is a deadbeat and my mother left him with our grandma when he was a toddler, but came back for him after some time. When my mother married my father, my father began taking my brother to the psychiatrist. At the time, my dad was a small business owner who worked very hard. He gave my brother his first job at his business as well. He took time off to help my brother with his issues. However when they divorced, my mother through these problems out the window and my brother stopped going to the doctor. When my parents fought in a custody battle, my dad tried to gain my brother with me, but was only able to gain me because I'm his biological son and my father never adopted my brother because the father was still SOMEWHAT around.
Then one night my brother couldn't stand living with my mother anymore. She constantly harassed him and made him feel worthless, instead of bettering his school work ethic was treated like a slave, and killed his aspirations for music. He was a VERY talented guitarist. My brother was kicked out the house when he was 16 and went to move in with his father. I was 8 at the time, and from that moment on I rarely EVER got to see my brother anymore because my mother simply did not allow me.
My father was forced to sell his business because my mother convinced him too after he had planned to turn it into a franchise, but she didn't believe in it. When they split, my dad tackled real estate and got very good at it. However at the time, I was living with my mother and she continued her boring office job she acquired by going to college. That was when I began to resent school, because I thought I would end up in her position. I will not deny this though, my mother is hardworking. However my aspirations have always been different. I've always had a entrepreneurial mindset instead of being the employee. Whenever I got to see my dad I went with him on several business trips and learned many things about sales, real estate, property, etc.
My mother began listening to her friends, saying to put a restraining order on my father because he came to the house one day to try and see me but she wouldn't let him. I found out years later that she tried to go through with it but fortunately never worked. From elementary school to high school, I was only able to see my father through weekend visits. It went from seeing a few times a week to seeing him once every two weeks. For a time, I actually did believe some of the stuff my mother said because my dad has always been a bit of a hothead. But I realized it was just a stupid issue my dad had and he had been working on it as well.
In high school though, I became angry with myself. All the years living with my mother I felt like I had done nothing with my life. Sure, I made friends, talked to some girls, and had fun in my social life, but I felt like I was going NOWHERE. And when I went to my mom for advice she said "go to school, get good grades". But I hated school. I started to flunk for a while but my mother never helped me. She would only harass and bitch. At that time, my mother already got remarried and had another kid with my step dad. My step dad was similar to my mother and held me back. They wanted to control every aspect of my life, who I was friends with, etc. It also became clear to me about one thing, they were racist. They always said, "I'm not sure about bringing THOSE friends home", meaning literally just my black friends. They started trying to sniff me out for marijuana or other drugs when I started hanging out with them. Crazy enough, I got into pot not from "one of those black friends", but from an Indian friend. Funny. They started bringing up race with me more often and how I feel about "those Black Lives Matter people" and all this crap. My father on the other hand never cared about who I hung out with. It mind boggles me because both my father and mother are Latino, and my mother grew up in a very diverse area, but holds racist attitudes. My grandmother doesn't hold these attitudes is the funniest thing about it. How's my GRANDMOTHER more culturally progressive than my own mother?
After realizing I was nothing but a liability at my mother's house, I moved out at 16 with my father. But not like my brother, because he dropped out of high school and struggled for many years until his mid-20s when he got proper mental help through way of MY FATHER after years. Eventually my brother was able to get back to a mental state and moved to Texas. He fell in love and lives with his girlfriend and her son now. Cares for her son like my father cared for him. When I moved out to live with my dad it was to learn more about my true aspirations: business, real estate, etc. I hated school, college, and everything about that. I still went to school and hadn't dropped out, but when I was 17 I started my own business that I continue to run to this day. My father helped me through the whole process and believed in me while my mother said I'd fail if I didn't go to college. Plus, she knew I was smoking at the time and thought that weed was going to destroy my life and make me a homeless druggie. My father knew as well but he didn't care cuz HE SMOKES AS WELL and is very successful.
I graduated high school, started making several thousands of dollars and not really trying to delve too much into my money but I made my first six figures in my senior year. I started doing really well for myself and still do in fact. I'm self-employed and run everything by myself. I started investing with my father to have side incomes and we now do very well for ourselves. I visited my mother a few times, mostly to see my little sister to make sure she was okay. It started to become obvious that she was JEALOUS. The first time I yelled at my mother with no repercussions is when I was younger. I had to move all of my money out of one of my dependent accounts under my mother because I started that account when I was like 14. I put all my money there when I started my business because I honestly forgot it was a dependent account. But then my mother stole $1,500 from me and I got really pissed. Even though it was easy to make that money back, it felt like a huge betrayal. My father opened me an account under him and I moved all of my money into there instead because I knew my father would not touch my money. Today I am of course independent and handle my own money.
Around a year ago, I met a girl that I fell in love with. She's very much an independent woman and goes to med school here in the city. We moved in together, and thought, hey maybe I should introduce her to my mother and sister. So I scheduled it, went up for dinner, and we sat down to eat. It all seemed normal, my mother interrogated her to see if she was "worth my time". But this is where I lost it. I didn't yell or get angry, but inside my head I was boiling up. My mother did something to me she hadn't done in years, she spoke to me Spanish. The reason she didn't speak to me in Spanish in so long was because she remarried to a non-Latino/non-Hispanic guy. She brought me to the side after dinner and asked me "Why an Asian?"
What? Why an Asian?
Instead of an Asian she preferred I date a Latina or a white girl. She didn't trust her because "she was from China". I had to explain to her that she was actually born in America and that she's Korean-American. Like I don't understand why I had to explain she's not part of the CCP and she's a good woman. Her race was such an issue with her. Here's another amazing comparison that absolutely mind boggles me. My mother was born into a low-class family who are Cuban exiles. She was born in the USA in a diverse community, as I said before. My father was born in Colombia and moved to Chicago when he was very young into the low-class and moved down to Florida when he was 16. Explain this: Why the fuck is my dad and my grandmother, two migrants from a different generation, more progressive and more accepting of who I am in love with? How the hell is my mother's brother gay and she is so weirded out by gay people? How the hell, out of all of my mother's family who are old migrants that sought to create a new life in America, my mother is more racist than the elderly in our family?
And explain this: Why does my mother want me to fail? Why has she stolen from me, barely shown love to me, barely shown me attention when I needed it most? She has done it with two children and I am very afraid for my little sister.
So this is my decision: I am cutting off complete contact with my mother. That next morning after our meeting, I sent my mother a lengthy text to stay away from me, my father, not to contact my brother, and my girlfriend. I told her not to visit me or call me, and that if she ever needs to talk to me have it concern my sister. I have lost love for my mother, and I can say that with full confidence. It's been a month since then and I plan on continuing this for a very long time. I've already made it clear that if I ever marry this woman, my mother is not invited to our wedding. If I ever have a child with her, my child will unfortunately not know their grandmother. They will be able to have fun and spend time with their amazing, loving grandfather who never cared who I was or who they will be. I only keep people who will bring positivity around me. My brother has lessened contact with our mother too. His own wedding is coming up soon and our mother isn't going to be invited to that either.
We are adults now and we are independent. We know what we want with our lives, and I know what I want with my life. I never failed, and I never will. I will continue to prove my mother wrong in the future.
PS: this took a lil bit to write. Please excuse if I sidetracked a bit too much in some areas.

2020.09.18 05:22 Uyemaz Teachers College Application Help!

I am was planning to apply for Teacher's College this year and well, I came up short by the slimmest of margins. It is rather embarrassing and demotivating, but all teacher's college recommends a minimum of 10 full-year courses (20 for half year). I believe all if not the majority of them state that applicants must have that amount when they apply. I currently have 8 full-year courses and 3 half-year courses completed. Which would take me to 9.5 full year courses completed or 19 half-year courses completed to date. I am taking 4 full year courses this year as I am finishing my honours.
Currently I am struggling to even find placements/volunteering as I have no experience other being a Camp Counsellor back in '12. I sent an e-mail to UOIT, and well they are yet to even reply back on alternatives.
QUESTIONS:
- Does anyone know if universities will even consider me with 9.5 full-year or 19 half-year courses completed to date? My average is above 70%, I believe around 73%-74%.
- Is there any point of applying really? I dont want to waste money on applications if I dont even stand a chance.
- If I do apply, do Teacher's Colleges give conditional offers?
- Is there any hope or any advice for alternatives options?
- Any recommendations for programs to volunteer or suggestions?
- I am a visible minority (Latino) and a male, I heard that schools look at this for some reason, which I find odd. How does that affect their applicants?
Thank you for commenting!

2020.09.17 12:31 CaptainGordan Throwback Write-Up #20: NB Ridaz - NB RIdaz.com

Artist: NB Ridaz
Album: NB Ridaz.com
Label: Upstairs Records
Released: April 4th, 2004
Background
NB Ridaz, formally known as Nastyboy Klick, are a Hip Hop/R&B group out of Phoenix Arizona. Started by MC Magic, the group became popular locally by selling their CDs at swap meets and making personalized songs of their hits for people. They dropped two albums under the Nastyboy Klick moniker, one of which had one of their most successful singles with “Lost In Love”. Their debut also had the hit “Down For Yours” featuring Roger Troutman, who laid down the chorus with his signature talkbox singing. That sound would become a staple in NB Ridaz’s future hits. With the name officially change to NB Ridaz, they dropped Invasion in 2001, with the hit song “Runaway” In 2004 they dropped NB Ridaz.com, their most successful album to date, spawning hits like “Notice Me” “So Fly” and “Pretty Girl”. The influence Roger Troutman had instilled on the group’s sound is especially prominent here, with the talkbox chorus on “Wishin on a Star” and “Pretty Girl” This album also served to promote their website NBRidaz.com, where they sold merchandise and promoted their personalized songs that fans can put requests for. Although the site is no longer active you are able to see remnants of the site if you use the wayback machine.
Intro
I wanted to preface by saying that the reason I chose this album was because it was huge among Hispanics/Latinos in the US. and in Latin America, but I feel like they are largely unknown to this forum and non-hispanic hip hop listeners. I realized I lived in a bit of a bubble when I overestimated their general popularity on this sub. Living in a large Mexican community, the album and songs like “So Fly” and “Pretty Girl” were inescapable and most girls I went to middle school with including my sister had a crush on MC Magic. I talked about them once in the DD a while back when someone brought up Soulja Boy’s influence by using the internet to blow up and being the supposed first one to really use the internet, and I mentioned how NB Ridaz were using their website to promote personalized songs before Soulja Boy was active, which was then downvoted and followed by a “Who?” response. Anyways after that and testing the waters by posting “Pretty Girl” (which was downvoted), I became aware of that bubble and how the album is not known to the general hip hop audience. To be fair, even when the album was in heavy rotation during release, I noticed it was more popular among girls than dudes, and this sub/website isn’t exactly known for their demographics in the women department.
Review
One thing about this album is that almost every single song has to do with love or intimacy, whether that be the pursuit and wooing of a new partner, cultivating and strengthening of relationships, or lamenting of past relations, probably why it was more popular with girls than dude.
The album kicks off with a forgettable intro followed by U Got Me Hot, which is just a fun song about meeting women at the club and a good track to kick off the album.
Now she was rockin hot jeans
Low-cut baby tee
Hotter than the Fourth of July in A Z
I mean I'm trippin, I couldn't even think
Booty so thick she can hold two drinks
Next is Pretty Girl. Though it wasn’t the leading single on the album, it is probably the most popular song from this album after Notice Me. With a smooth beat reminiscent of 90’s G-Funk, and a chorus and verses backed up by the talkbox singing that they picked up from Roger Troutman, this song has everything that makes it both timeless and a callback to the group’s roots. My favorite part has to be MC Magic’s verse, as he blesses us by alternating his rhymes between English and Spanish seamlessly.
Si tu supieras lo que siento
Cada vez
Que me pongo a pensar en todos los momentos
All the good times we've had, me and you, you and I
Hot summer nights, making love in July
The only girl that didn't give it on the first night
Una mujer incomparable, Imma love her life
After Pretty Girl and, the album transitions to its raunchier side with the lead single So Fly. One small detail I always liked about this song is that each member comes in with a short intro setup before their verse starts, with Zig Zag and MC Magic singing their first lines before rapping, and the DJ Scratching on the beginning of Dos’s verse, I thought it was a pretty neat touch. Zig Zag’s verse is iconic too and etched in my childhood since my sister had this song on loop on her boombox.
I know, I been on the road and away from home
But I been fiendin' for you
Dreaming of you
And what I'm gonna do when I have you alone
You heard the message
On your cellphone, me sayin' "Daddy's home"
I'm about to put it down, got you runnin' around
Half-naked around the house
And this isn't just fast sex
We makin' love until we both climax
Next up Tu Eres, a love ballad sung entirely in Spanish. The lines are a bit cheesy, but since it’s a love ballad it’s expected. If you get serious with a Latina who’s in her late 20’s/early 30’s, you’ll get bonus points if you play this for her.
Despertando una manana pensando en ti
Tus brazos y besos los quiero sentir
Yo te quiero y te amo que haria sin ti?
Un angel que Dios me enviado a mi
On Wishin’, the song revolves around getting hurt by being broken up with by an ex, but still wanting them back. Though it sounds great rapping and beat-wise, and the chorus is nice as hell, it’s my least favorite song on the album on subject matter alone. After that the album gets more upbeat on Playaz. Dope hook, classic beat, and great verses all around where NB Ridaz affiliates 'The Hav Nots' lay down some good verses.
The album then does a 180 with 4-Ever, a song about committing to be with your partner forever. The chorus features singer Angelina combined with the talkbox singing by the NB Ridaz. Though this is one of multiple tracks on the album that feature the talkbox singing chorus, and not even the only one that also features Angelina on the chorus, they still manage to get creative with it. Next up is Notice Me, which was probably the song that got the most radio play in my area and in general. While being the second song that has both Angelina and the talkbox singing chorus, it still manages to sound fresh and change from a theme of commitment to one of simping.
Until I Die is probably my favorite beat on the album, even with dope 90’s West Coast style beats of “Pretty Girl” and “Playaz”. Hearing this makes me wish NB Ridaz experimented more with guitars on their instrumentals. This song is different from the other love songs on the album in that it focuses on growth in partnership, from struggles to sacrifices couples would do for each other. Featured artist and long-time collaborator Big Gemini has a great verse on this as well
I used to say once you're born you're just waiting to die
And every day in between is just a waste of some time
But in time I was convinced that I was far from the truth
Believe it or not I found truth the night I met you
So just know that if there's life after death I'm a wait for you there
To love you forever for real
Sunshine features the same singer (Mary) who did the chorus on U Got Me Hot, and she easily steals the show on this. This song always reminded of a 90’s R&B ballad, and probably the only song on the album where I think Dos had the best verse. .
Not once not twice but your three times a lady
The comfort of your arms got me feeling like your baby
Ill be there for you lets make love in to memories
Your tender touch and your smile always get the best of me
Never let you go or treat you bad ill give you all i have
I belong to you and only you girl i want you bad
Sunshine is followed by the Lil Ridaz skit, just an obnoxious skit of these two little kids breaking into MC Magic’s studio and rapping. Kinda wishing they cut this because it’s not great. The skit leads us into the next song, Bounce If You Wanna, that uses the same beat as the skit. Something weird I found in making this writeup is that not a single lyric website has this song correctly noted, as every site instead has the lyrics to the Lil Ridaz skit. I wanted to highlight Kid Frost’s verse because he was nice and it was iconic to have the first Mexican-American rapper to blow up on an NB Ridaz track. This doesn’t exist anywhere else so I might have mucked a few words
Collar stay popped like champagne bottles, it’s full throttle
That’s the motto, and I spend dough like I won the lotto
Hit trees like there’s no tomorrow
Still spittin hot shit for you to bump in your barrio
Kid Frost, Two fifths of Hennessey
2002 West, go to push and a half ounce of kush
Went triple x, now there’s plenty of bush
Pornstars and strippers get snatched with one look
It’s the Kiddie crook back with them NB Ridaz
O’s and G’s, flippin pounds of keys
On the regular, there’s no competitor
Take it from the editor, back like the predator
Exterminator, Terminator, Violator, Regulator
And I’m way too smooth than them brand new wall of gators
Kid Frost still a boss and I floss on you haters
Fakes and phonies, and all you perpetrators
Southwest Ridaz is up next, and the album is just the group spitting cold hard bars. MC Magic shines as usual and alternate Spanish and English lines like he did on Pretty Girl, except with more hardcore rapping on this track. San Diego’s Mr. Shadow makes an appearance, who was also popular among latino hip hop listeners in the mid 2000’s, but who catered more to the gangster rap crowd.
MC Magic expands on how the group started in the skit Magic’s Custom CDs, where he recounts how his group were able to establish themselves by making personalized CDs for them and advertises how fans can use the website to request their own custom CDs, and as a bonus he even includes an example of a custom song he made using Lost in Love as a basis. The album’s closing track, Guess Who’s Back was always my guilty pleasure as a kid. Borrowing my sister’s CD of this album every now and then, this is the track I always skipped to since at the time I wasn’t feeling like hearing love or heartbreak songs, so this one holds a special place in my heart. With this and Southwest Ridaz, the group made it known they can drop bars when they wanted to and aren’t just a group that coasts on love ballads.
I didn’t mention the Cho and Lo skits, until now, but they are a series of skits on the album that have a radio duo ragging on each other. I used to like their banter when I was in middle school, but I’ve grown out of it since then
Conclusion
As I mentioned before, upon doing my research for my writeup, I found that I overestimated the group’s popularity and my perception of their popularity was warped because of where I and who I grew up with, being from a city on the west coast where there are more Mexicans than any other race. In spite of their popularity among Latinos with songs that have +10 million views on youtube, they never had an album chart on the Billboard 200, and even their most famous songs only peaked close to the bottom of the Billboard 100 charts. In spite of their lack of reach outside the Latino community, this album was huge for those of us who did grow up listening to it.
Questions
For non-Latinos, did you listen to or come across this album while growing up?
In light of NB RIdaz's use of the internet to push their albums as did other artists, do you feel that their practices are overlooked when discussing the history of artists using the internet to sell?

2020.09.17 03:11 LANKYSTILTS sexually annoyed more then frustrated

so I’m a bisexual guy (M27) dating a (M24) year old guy we’ve been dating for 5 years. our jobs are in different fields, and thankfully we both still have jobs due to Covid mines is more remote work and his is still actually going into office.
We don’t live together because finically it’s smarter for him to stay at home and finish paying off school debt. I have my own place that he’s always welcome to come to but we live about a 45 to hour drive away from each other and I feel like his time is more limited then mines due to him having 2 jobs to my 1 job. I try not to push the subject of picking him up or him driving to me because when he’s not home for a few days it seems to be a problem for his family. I try not to dig too deep into it cause I feel that part of his life is not really my business to pry about.
He says his family is also accepting of him being gay but we are both different races (him Latino me mixed race) and I’ve always had the sneaking suspicion that his family doesn’t appreciate him dating anyone that isn’t a girl let alone not Latino but during discussions that he gets defensive about and says “his family doesn’t accept him” feels weird to me because I’ve literally watched him post a coming out post on IG two years ago and a lot of his family liked the status. He hangs out with his cousins and younger family members and I haven’t been invited once. He claims they would like to meet me but it’s confusing because anytime I’ve bought it up he just says “oh yeah all my cousins bring their girlfriends and stuff.” But I feel like I’m still this secret in his life. He’s met my mother even though me and my mother don’t have a relationship and no longer are on speaking terms. And i don’t have many friends because people cut me off after I came out, so I choose to cut them off as well and the few friends I do have are long distance or busy with starting their own families/ middle of careers so it’s VERY hard to schedule anything let alone organize days to go out and have a meet & greet. I’ve avoided all food places cause I feel it’s irresponsible in the middle of a pandemic.
In the beginning I thought he was Bi curious and more open minded but he made it very clear he didn’t think he was Bi at all which was a shock to me but I let it go and in bringing up the idea of 3 somes and other activities he gets very offended or it hurts him so I’ve chosen to not ever bring it up anymore after that 2nd year.
I’m not small by any means (8.5”) so I understand since he’s a bottom and I’m a top he needs time to prepare. he says he doesn’t really have much space since his sister and their kids also still live at home with the parents. I’ve been very understanding. But I also was single for awhile before I met him and I am a very sexual person.
We’ve literally had sex 2 times in the past 8 months. we got a hotel the last time and it was amazing but he got offended that afterwards I was tired and falling asleep on him while he tried to introduce me to a show. it was very slow buildup and anime so reading subtitles because my Japanese skill still isn’t the best I didn’t mean to be falling asleep I just had been highly stressed out working a 40 hour work week having to drive for an hour out of town added with the California heat, adding in a few IPA’s and a good meal and I was exhausted.
He asked me if I was boring him and I just came to get sex. I told him he wasn’t.
The next day we left and everything was fine.
A few weeks have passed and I’ve tried to bring up the subject. He always claims he’s “too tired.” Or he doesn’t have the time to prepare. I’ve offered for him to prepare at my house but he still declines.
I have a bunch of porn like every other human being saved in my favorites on Pornhub and he happened to come across them one time. he commented that I had a lot of stuff with redheads, bisexual, lesbians, etc but not a lot of people that looked like him. I replied that a lot of people in porn only look a certain way and it’s just to Jack off. I could tell it bothered him.
I’ve made the comment that I don’t enjoy eating ass that much compared to the times I’ve eaten pussy. he said it hurts him when I make comments like that and if he said he wasn’t into skinny guys and only into broad shoulder, muscular guys I would get offended.
I am well endowed and work out 4 times a week. I’ve been told by multiple partners and FWB’s before him I have an amazing body, and am a awesome partner. I just feel like he’s using the sex card as a bargaining chip and I’m tired of having to go the extra mile to bring it up only for him to say “oh I won’t be able to prepare.” Or “sorry we can do it next time.”
He claims that he doesn’t want me to get mad or feel like he’s failing me as a boyfriend but I want him To stop comparing himself to all my old partners and FwB and just have some fucking sex.
when the fuck will next time be in 10 years? I think to myself a lot of the time but I never say it out loud. It builds resentment.
I’ve never been very affectionate growing up, but I worked on that for him. Saying I love you, sending flowers, making dinners, listening to his problems and generally doing everything a partner is there to do.
to be constantly shut down when before I knew him it was me being single and sort of never having a problem connecting and having sexual friends with benefits it bothers me.
I’ve deleted tons of friends with benefits from all social media and any way of contact and sometimes I feel like I’m being driven into a corner.
I don’t want to fucking cheat. I don’t want to jack off all the fucking time because I’m not 12 years old anymore I’m a fucking adult male with needs that are not being met and I’m tired of it.
I had to write this down and idk why...

2020.09.16 15:23 dhsisnxbdiwn Is it over?

18M KHHV dark-skinned Curry, 5’10 shortcel, 6in dickcel
Just started college 3 weeks ago and some girl said she liked me last week. I thought she was being nice but she would buy snacks and food for me which was weird.
Apparently she had a crush on me but like why would you go for me when there’s gigachads everywhere? Anyway, I said no because I wasn’t attracted to her.
I asked a girl to hang out last weekend and she said yes but she ghosted me on the day of and I was like alright it makes sense because I’m a curry.
Then I asked another one to come to my dorm this Saturday and she said yes. I already hung out with her for 4 hours before so she might be into me I’m not sure. I think she wants to be friends probably.
Just can’t shake the feeling that I’ll never get a girl cuz I’m indian. There is a Latino guy I know that’s shorter than me and has a recessed jaw that got a girl on the first day and fucked her that night. Now they’re dating.

2020.09.16 09:26 JustForPornAG How to tell my boyfriend he doesn't need to be embarrassed about his moaning and sounds during sex?

Hey all, forgive me in advance for the rambling,I'm just trying to get my thoughts out...
My boyfriend (20) and I (21) have been dating for about a year at this point. Love him - hilarious, romantic, emotionally and mentally mature, SEXY Latino man.
He's fairly masc and takes a lot of pride in his gender - his normal speaking voice - it's not feminine, he doesn't have the "gay accent" - but it is higher pitched for a guy.
We enjoy a very healthy and active sex life - I'm the regular top during sex (90% of the time). However, there's this regular occurrence that happens in almost every lovemaking session we have...
I can't describe it - but you know when you're just in the heat of it. When the both of you are just 100% fully into it. And he's moaning and being loud and saying my name, but he has this realization while in the middle of it - and switches to this porno-like gruff and deep grunts and shouts of "Fuck yeah" or "Fuck that ass" almost like a switch.
And it's obvious that he's now putting on this almost act.
And it genuinely bothers me. Maybe I'm not in the right position to be feeling so - but we've been together for a year and it makes me feel that he's not comfortable with me. I want to hear his real genuine sounds of pleasure. It's like he gets embarrassed by the sounds he's making so he overcompensates in the other direction.
Any thoughts or advice? I don't wanna play therapist, but I also don't want him to feel obligated to put on a front when we're both supposed to be enjoying ourselves.
Thanks in advance.

2020.09.16 04:23 PureChampion Am I overreacting, or did my boyfriend's family sabotage my proposal?

My(25/m) boyfriend (26/m) and I recently celebrated two years of our relationship and I had come to a decision that I want to become engaged to him and plan to spend the rest of my life with him.
From the beginning of the relationship he let me know that his family is very Mormon and Latino and that they are not very accepting of same gender relationships. I understood this coming from a Catholic Latino family and assured him that whatever involvement they were going to have would be okay.
About 6 months into the relationship and the whole family seems to be very welcoming. They invite me over for dinner and I get the feeling that they really like me, my boyfriend tells me that they've never wanted to meet or know any of his past boyfriends. He has a brother (23/m) who recently returned from his missionary trip in Ecuador and a sister (25/f), both who seem like they really enjoy my company and are accepting. His dad (50/m) speaks very little English but he make sure to always shake my hand whenever he sees me and his mom (49/f) kisses my cheek whenever she sees me. At this point I feel totally welcomed by this family.
Fast forward to about May of this year when I decide to buy a ring after our 2-year relationship milestone. I reach out to his brother and sister and let them know about my plan to propose in October when we go on vacation to Orlando. I let them know that COVID might put a damper on it but I was going to propose whether I could make it out to Orlando with him or not. The brother replied saying that he was excited and gave his blessing for us because we made each other happy. His sister did not reply, which I thought was weird, but I let it go.
Now, in September, I am finding out that his brother who has been dating this girl (26/F) he met in Ecuador for less than a year through a long distance relationship is planning on proposing to her in October. Not only in October, the very weekend before I told him I was going to propose.
Also, I have been saving and scrounging as much money as I can to make the trip that we go on with my cousin and her husband very fun and a happy day for us all considering it's going to be where I propose to him. Yet they invite him to go to New York to ask the girl's dad for her hand in marriage. They tell my boyfriend they'll pay for his whole trip, and at the last minute ask him to pay his way. He feels bad because they've already bought the plane ticket and he doesn't want to cancel. So now we have to dip into the funds that I had set aside for Orlando to send him to New York randomly when that was not the plan.
Now with the sudden loss of some of the money I've been saving for Orlando and the fact that planning his proposal the weekend before mine will affect my plans to make our proposal special, I'm at the point where I'm ready to cancel the whole trip and push the proposal out to a different date. My cousin is mad for me and thinks that this is some blatant disrespect on their part. Part of me wants to argue in their defense that they don't know our finances so they couldn't possibly know that this New York trip is affecting our Orlando trip, or maybe it's not a big deal to them to have a proposal right before another one.
The other part of me just sees it as rude and disrespectful, although it's hard for me to contemplate this because they've never been anything but nice to me. I wanted to reach out here to get an unbiased opinion, let me know what you think! Thank you for taking the time to read this super long essay lol!
TLDR: my boyfriend's brother is planning his proposal to his long-distance girlfriend, who he has been dating less than a year, the weekend before I told them I was going to propose.

2020.09.15 22:22 ocolatechay_ussypay A guy called me pretty yesterday

I am a 25F, AA. I was at my sister's house yesterday when two guys came to install the a/c. One looked like he was about 25-28 years old and the other looked like he was 32-36, both latino. When I first saw the older guy, we made eye contact, smiled, and said hello as he passed by with my brother-in-law who was directing him. I instantly thought "oh he's cute." We passed each other a few more times and exchanged glances.
I later left for a few hours to run some errands. When I got back, I was chatting with my sister in her bedroom when both guys came in with my brother-in-law to finish up the installement there. I wasn't paying them any attention really. I just kept talking to my sister. They finally finished a few minutes later and started to say bye to us and the kids. At the same time, I turned around to say bye back and he says bye again, waves, and does a quick little wink at me.
After they left I asked my sister, if she noticed that he winked at me. She said no, but while I was out doing errands, they got to chatting while he was working. He asked about the kids. My sister has 4 (8,5,4, and 8 months old) and they are a handful. He apparently also has a 4 or 5 year old. He then asked about the girl who was here earlier (me lol). She said oh that's my sister. Apparently, he then said oh she's really pretty. So naturally, I proceed to blush and get excited when I realized ohhh that's why he winked at me. He was hitting on me and I was basically oblivious. I am horrible at flirting fyi. I get sooo nervous lol.
My brother-in-law's truck was blocking our driveway, so they couldn't back out. My bro asked if I could move it. And I thought fuck! He's probably gonna chat me up. Stay cool lol. As I'm walking to the car, he tried to make convo, but my nerves got the best of me. He asked if I lived here with my sister. I said no I'm just visiting. And I basically just turned and kept walking to the car like a dummy. It was clear he wanted to chat more, but it was kinda awkward with the other worker standing 2 feet away.
After moving his truck, I had to leave again to go run more errands, so that was it. Didn't get his name or anything.
But it was cool for what it was, us both finding the other attractive. He was almost too cute, where I could barely look him in the eye lol.
I haven't dated anyone since February before the pandemic started, so it was finally nice to get some attention again.
THE END. Lol. Just wanted to get that off my chest.
Edit: AA = African American

2020.09.15 21:41 PureChampion Were my (25/m) plans to propose to my partner (26/m) ruined by his family?

We all know some Latinos with european ancestry can pass of as full white, thus giving them the full package of dating benefits that being white entails. But what about my bros who have a more native ancestry??
Where ya'll at?

2020.09.15 06:24 Onani19 Boyfriend wants to meet bigoted parents so he can propose.

Bare with me here since it’s a very long story. For the sake of simplicity I’ll call boyfriend (bf), boyfriend sister (sis) and my parents (parents)
In high school around 6 years ago i was struggling really badly with depression because I didn’t know how I felt about guys. It was really hard and in my house neither my parents or younger brother could care less about me because we just didn’t get along. One day while watching Latino entertainment television we saw two men kissing each other on the tv and my parents stated that if either me or my brother came out as gay they would disown who ever was gay. It was hard because at the time I had met a really good guy, bf and we were really good friends but I had feelings for him. After about a year into our friendship I confessed to him and praise god almighty he felt the same way. We immediately started dating and going on dates to the parks and restaurant holding hands and kissing among other things.
Fast forward to another year of us dating and he forced me to meet his family, who were all very supportive and caring. His sister was the best and we instantly became best friends. My boyfriend later said that he wanted to meet mine but I said I wasn’t ready yet and he understood. When we graduated high school my parents immediately set up my college account to pay for my tuition and books and stuff but they refused to let me dorm stating that I had a house to live in with them. I begged and begged but no matter what they wouldn’t let me dorm despite the fact that they have the money. Bf came to the same college as me and we continued our relationship in secret from my parents but as of last year he proposed to me. I shot him down fast telling that now wasn’t the right time and how I wanted to graduate first. He was really devastated when I said no but he tried to maintain himself and forgave me saying he understood. But now the big problem arises last week when he told me I want to meet your family. I told him why and he said because it’s time we’ve been dating for 6 years and not once have I met them. When I went to his house the other day sis told me the real reason why he wanted to meet my parents. He wanted to ask them for their blessing to marry me so I wouldn’t have to be scared of them disowning me. I flat out told him no because I’m one year away from graduating and I can’t afford tuition not even with a scholarship. He gave me an ultimatum, either he meets my parents at the end of the month or he’ll leave me. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. I really love him but he just doesn’t understand why I can’t marry him right now or why he can’t meet my parents. He says he’ll cover my tuition and that his family will help but I can’t accept that from them I will feel awful. Please, please tell me what I should do.

2020.09.15 03:26 pleasetuckmein I can't tell what's OCD anymore. I'm racist for real, and I can't stop thinking about it

I really don't know what to do here.
I realized that I have some internalized racism toward Indian people. Not in the way I treat them, but sexually. I guess I internalized some things I've learned when I was younger that Indian people are "gross," probably because I tend to think of Indian food that way. I didn't ever register this until now, but I always just kind of had a dating preference against Indian people.
Now, I watch videos about Indian culture and compulsively look up pictures of attractive Indian people (I only feel this way about the gender I'm attracted to). I have a couple Indian friends. When I see a dark-skinned person and I feel attraction, I ask myself "what if they turn out to be Indian and not Latino/Black," and sometimes I actually feel resistance inside of me. I also tried watching porn with Indian people.
I've been obsessing over this for the past month at least and I don't know what to do. I've definitely made a little bit of progress because I've found some Indian people who I'm attracted to, and it's just been on my radar, but I feel like I will never erase this bias totally. At some points I feel good about it, like I solved it, but it's coming crashing down on me again.
I try reminding myself that race is just a social construct and that Indian people are just people who evolved to have darker skin because of their climate, but I still feel racist toward them.
If I feel this way about people who did nothing wrong to me I shouldn't even be here. What am I supposed to do from here if I can't feel the same attraction?
