All these people wondering when free became a drama.

wasn’t it around this time last year that Rei almost drowned in the ocean.


Launched last month, Wafrica — Africa plus wa for Japan — has unveiled a range of kimono handcrafted in an array of African cotton fabrics that would seem to be a million miles from the subtle silks more commonly associated with traditional Japanese dress. Yet despite the orange comets and flashes of lightning tearing across a moss-green background, and the tribal swirls in colors that recall the sun-drenched African soil, the prints blend seamlessly into the kimono form before they surprise Japanese shoppers with their foreign origin.

The cultural cocktail is the brainchild of Serge Mouangue, a Tokyo-based concept- car designer for Nissan, who joined forces with Kururi, a Tokyo-based kimono- maker, to produce the traditional Japanese attire in 18 African prints sourced in markets from Nigeria to Senegal.

When you’ve been abused by a parent like that dealing with anything afterwords is terrifying.

I can only imagine the emotions Zuko was feeling when he apologised to Iroh there. 

^This is one of the reasons that I think going in to apologize to Iroh is one of the bravest things that Zuko’s ever done, because of how much it must have terrified him to do so (Iroh would never hurt Zuko like that, but that fear had to have been at the top of Zuko’s mind at this moment)

And why I love Iroh so, so much for being who he is. 

I will always think of this when I watch that scene now.

He Was Raised By A White Mom And Didn't Think The Cops Were Out To Get Him. Until They Got Him.





I heard his story on NPR. His mom raised him to “not see color” etc. And the cops beat  the hell out of him when they pulled him over. It took seeing him in jail beaten half to death for her to see that race matters every day.

Wow. I am a half black male raised by a white mother…but I’m fortunate to be Canadian. This stuff doesn’t happen here. I’m treated the same wherever I go in this country, and have had very few people assume anything about me because of my ethnicity. That wasn’t a luxury I was given when I lived in the US for 3 years. It’s mindblowing how race is still a serious issue in many parts of the country south of mine. If the cops did anything like that here they would all be held accountable, discharged, and jailed. Wow.

And here we have the wild Canadian fuckboy in his natural habitat. That garbage out of mouth? A distinctive mating call.


Rascism most certainly does happen in Canada. Just because we have more laws against it doesn’t mean shit if the oppurtunity to carry the law out never comes up.

I made a joke to a coworker about how he was having to fix computer issues because nobody else could, saying “When did you become tech support?”. His response? “Do I look like I have a red dot on my forehead?”. The security at the local airport is lax as fuck, but one time I saw a middle eastern man get the full pat down while white people were just allowed to bypass the checkpoint since there was only 1 open. When I was in highschool, the Nigerian transfer students were often greeted with slurs and stereotypes. The native population in this city is constantly ridiculed, berated for being “government freeloaders”, and every body assumes they’re drunk by default. I have heard people refer to Richmond (A city/sub-city in Vancouver) as chink town. I was chaperoning a highschool trip recently, and we happened to pass a car accident. One of the students on the bus said “Oh, he’s asian, that explains that”.

Rascism does not need to be physical to be harmful and more people need to understand that.
