Hello, it's been a while. Today, I want to talk a little about some of the experiences I've recently had with what may be covert racism and also my own reckoning with my biases. We all know about how instances of hate crimes towards Asian-Americans spiked during COVID and it's not hard to figure out... Continue Reading →
Heyo! I just finished my finals this semester and decided to relax by watching some new anime. Having recently finished Psycho-pass, I was in need of a fix, so to speak, so I went googling for some other psychological thrillers and stumbled on Erased.

“These people are so repressed,” Sarah laughs. “You just have to talk to them sometimes, and they’re shaking. I know as a black woman I am always going to be fetishised to an extent – and the darker you are, the more you are. “They think we are naturally very sensual, all of us are... Continue Reading →
