Anonymous asked: What is the deal with Japan and the Ainu people? My anthro teacher was telling my class that some Japanese people are racist towards Ainu. I was wondering if you could clear that up for me? Thanks!

thisisnotjapan:

Start with Ainu on Wikipedia and in their own words. We’ve covered some of the racism in this tag.

Keep an eye out for the bizarre myth floating around the English-speaking internet that the Ainu are actually indigenous “white” or “Caucasian” people. White supremacists are really invested in this theory and have disseminated it all over the internet, even onto sites that don’t immediately seem white supremacist. 

Thanks for clearing up the white supremacist bit… in one of my history classes in college, our professor told us the Ainu were Caucasian. He was creepy and racist, but I did admittedly take him at his word on that.

You know what’s detrimental to young girls? Raising them to think they can ban a word because it might “hurt their feelings”

Doesn’t anyone remember the grade school chant? “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.”

God damn it, ban bossy isn’t about hurt feels, it’s about shaming and discouraging certain behavior in girls that we praise in boys.

“So you’ve just met someone, you going in for the handshake, they’re going in for the hug or the kiss or whatever, you jab them in the ribs. How do you kind of deal with that?”

a “hip-hop” hug? please go away forever.

Christian side-hugs would have been funnier (as in, funny at all.  Lol).  Too bad, so sad.

You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.

We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”

I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”

He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.

-Anthony Mackie getting in trouble for signing his posters at a Micheals  (x)

I’m pretty sure everyone’s goal in life is to do something they love as much as Anthony Mackie loves playing Falcon. I love him so much.
