american japanese

White washing (according to tumblr)

I can’t believe that they choose a non-japanese person to play the role of literally a brain in a synthetic body.

Look how it is in the anime. How obvious it is that this character is japanese. You can tell at first sight that this brain is japanese and all japanese brain should be inside a japanese body because japanese and americans brains are completely different and can’t be inside different races bodies. This is 100% facts and not me being racist.

The original movie is also very clear that the story happens in japan and not in a random city from a fully globalized world where countries or races doesn’t mean shit anymore. According to the original movie’s opening race-war is going on against Japan and everything in the story is 100% Japan related.

In the 2017 movie they even chose a Japanese actor for Makoto’s mom, changed the opening scene Ambassador for an African Ambassador and some more Japanese actors for multiple members of section 9 for even less diversity.

 Not only they chose a Japanese actor for Daisuke Aramaki, but he also only speek japanese during the whole movie. Disgusting.

Ghost in the shell is white-washing, don’t even watch it to make yourself an opinion !

In before, people that can’t understand Irony. 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

February 19th 1942: Japanese internment begins

On this day in 1942, US President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed executive order 9066 which allowed the military to relocate Japanese-Americans to internment camps. A climate of paranoia descended on the US following the attack on the naval base at Pearl Harbor by the Empire of Japan, which prompted the US to join the Second World War. Americans of Japanese ancestry became targets for persecution, as there were fears that they would collude with Japan and pose a national security threat. This came to a head with FDR’s executive order, which led to 120,000 Japanese-Americans being rounded up and held in camps. The constitutionality of the controversial measure was upheld by the Supreme Court in Korematsu v. United States (1944). Interned Americans suffered great material and personal hardship, with most people losing their property and some losing their lives to illness or the violence of camp sentries. The victims of internment and their families eventually received an official government apology in 1988 and reparations began in the 1990s. This dark episode of American history is often forgotten in the narrative of US involvement in the Second World War, but Japanese internment poses a stark reminder of the dangers of paranoia and scapegoating.
