Watanabe: There are many theories about who the original Japanese were, but it's pretty clear that we were not all one ethnic group but a mix of various ones. First we had the Jomon.

Lots of times when you watch anime, the characters all have white skin - all the characters in fantasy stories all have white skin, which I never liked. I wanted to have lots of characters in Bebop without the white skin, and if people weren't used to that, well, maybe it would even make them think a little bit about it. The same was true for languages. I wanted to have lines muttered in multiple languages, but that would have been just too difficult," he laughed. gahdamnpunk:The critical thinking, the self awareness…Taste and talent JUMPED OUT

LOL Like Reply 347 August 5 at 2:31pm Help Today at 1:56 PM Hey Jeremy, Unfortunately I setup a recurring political contribution on Donald Trumps website. After the most recent Trump blow outs, I've left voice messages for his campaign to call me back to provide instructions on how to cancel that recurring payment but l've also logged on to his website and there's NO instructions or place on the website to stop the recurring payment. I don't think it exists and I imagine I'm not the only one trying to find the place to cancel it. I thought maybe if you could bring some attention to it, maybe it would suddenly appear on his site after some news channels made a stink about it. ghostclvb: scrptrx: Mic decided to investigate these claims for themselves and see if this alleged former Trumpian was telling the truth. They set up a $1 recurring donation to the Trump Campaign, and when they tried to cancel it, Mic confirmed that there was no cancelation option. Not only that, but you could not edit or remove your credit card information on the website. Mic concluded that the way to stop donating is to call your bank and cancel your credit card. If not, you will be donating to Trump forever. To be fair, Mic also set up recurring $1 donations to Clinton’s campaign to see if they too tried to trap you into an eternity of donating. Mic noted that it was very simple to cancel donations on Clinton’s website. [kind of important] [how to cancel] LIAR, SCAMMER, MESSY ORANGE GOBLIN WHO LIVES FOR DRAMA

Family, Head, and Love: JUSTICE FOR MUSLIMS opals-official-twitter-account: writing-prompt-s: ello-bby: achromatiq: csidesuicide: arse-thetic: #justiceformuslims I love every single person who reblogged this I don’t think people realize how much of an impact this kind of support can have, I don’t think everyone knows what these little things can mean to us. It may just be me, I don’t know. But every single time I see this on my dash or on someone’s blog or anywhere else, I kind of just breathe a sigh of relief. That’s one more person who cares. That’s one more person who doesn’t hate me. Because it means so much, especially when all the media is spewing out is that I’m a terrible person and no one wants people like me near them. It means so much because I’m tired of people who won’t sit next to me in class, or who choose to join the longer line at the grocery store because they don’t want to be beside me and my family. It means so much when I have to lift my head any time someone says the words Islam or Muslim because I’m scared that they’ll say something that’ll hurt, when I have to pay attention to the news because who knows what so and so is saying now, who knows which of my people are being attacked now, who knows what’s going to happen to me now. It means so much because I’ve been given the idea that the world is against me. And a huge part of it may be, but at least I’ve been reminded that some of it, just a small group of people, acknowledges that I’m a person too. That people like me are just that, people. Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know. But now you do, so thank you for believing that I’m human when so many people don’t. Have a great day x Go unfollow this blog all you want, I am reblogging this.  I am aware this does not follow this blog’s style, however, I find it necessary to reblog this
