    During World War II Dr. Seuss worked for a newspaper called PM where he published these political cartoons bashing Japanese-Americans. While hostility towards the Japanese might have been justified at the time, Japanese-Americans were subjected to an even worse hate and even held in contempt.

    The animosity went all the way to the top. President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 which displaced all Japanese-Americans in Washington, Oregon, and California and moved them to containment camps for evaluation. Scholastic reports, “None of the Japanese Americans had been charged with a crime against the government. Two-thirds had been born in the United States, and more than 70 percent of the people forced into camps were American Citizens.” It was obvious that people were prejudice simply because of the way they looked and talked. None of the imprisoned had done anything wrong. This event encouraged the already horrible stereotype called "Yellow Peril" which claimed that Asians immigrating to the United States were going to destroy American values and the way of life.

"Chinese? No! No! No! Come to 10th and A Streets at 7:30 Monday evening and express your opinion on the Chinese question. Shall we have Chinese? No! No! No!" (July 23, 1892) Anti-Chinese sentiment was growing in Washington State during the 1880’s.

    How To Train Your Dragon 2

    Dreamworks’ original How To Train Your Dragon was a very simple and beautiful movie. Its simplicity brought out the best in its other aspects. I think often the best “children’s” stories are ones that allow a few central relationships to really develop and shine–an opinion that holds true for me in everything from Adventure Time to Sabriel to Little House on the…

    The Japanese take cute to a completely different level. Case in point: these tiny edible kitties, which are both adorably cute and tasty too. Caroline, a Japanese mom, made these for Cat’s Day (also known as Neko no Hi), which was on February 22. The little kitties are made from nerikiri, a sweet white-bean paste that’s mixed with a type of rice that’s similar in texture to mochi. Caroline also made all of the little accessories herself too.

    Unlike Moonrise Kingdom, the film that preceeded it, The Grand Budapest Hotel avoids being sickly sweet and twee. Or rather, it balances out that signature saccharine quality…
