when i was talking to people about how america is, like our laws and customs and schooling and stuff, they were dumbfounded. i was told that america sounds “like soviet russia”. I have a chinese flatmate who told me our media is “very similar to china’s” and that he “has to pledge to his flag every morning too”.
the people i have met come from all over the world and they are SHOCKED by how america works. and it was summed up beautifully by a british man i met tonight.
"you call yourselves the land of the free, but you really haven’t got the definition of ‘free’ right, have you?"
and i’ve never been more terrified to be an american. not because people don’t like the us, but because they see how fucked up it really is.
sherlock is actually a girl’s name.
Stop making me cry, people.
A young Jewish refugee with her Chinese playmates. Shanghai, China (x)
Between 1933 and 1941, it is estimated that 20,000 Jews escaped persecution by fleeing to the Chinese port of Shanghai. Shanghai was one of the few places in the world that would accept Jewish refugees at this time, Japan being another.
i am furious that i am just now learning about this important fact.
Because it has nothing to do with the USA being the superhero and saving all the Jews
This is a truly amazing story of twin sisters separated at birth who discovered each other at age 25 through social media (see Facebook message above in which Anais reached out to Samantha for the first time). One lives in London and the other in L.A. and the two have shared a close bond since meeting. They recently took a trip together to their birthplace, Seoul, Korea, and now they’re hoping to make a film together about their story. Check out their kickstarter campaign here. Story via buzzfeed.
