Long exposures photos of “Japan cherry blossoms” by Arixxx

We often see photos of the fascinating and busy city life of Tokyo, however, sometimes it is good to slow down and show other parts of Japan. Photographer Arixxx focuses on taking pictures of nature and nighttime scenes in Hitachi.

Is there any other way to go Daddy-O?

I’m starting to understand the real failings of multi-cultural education growing up in K-12 schools. We gave everyone access to the “fun” parts of culture. Let’s sing the dreidel song! Now we understand the Jewish experience. Let’s talk about segregation. Wasn’t that wrong. Aren’t we glad it’s over? Let’s take turns reading parts of the “I Have a Dream” speech. We had access to the easy stuff without having to really examine the hard stuff. And we were giving easy access to things that aren’t “ours” and shouldn’t be “ours.” So you can’t just pick up the “fun” stuff and put it into your party theme or Facebook pictures. I’m using simple terms like fun because that’s how multiculturalism was given to us as children. And while it may have served a purpose at the time, it gave us too much access to claim things that aren’t ours.

I honestly, honestly think that is some of the reasons why the race parties are such a horrible fad on college campuses. They are carrying on what we did in elementary school. Let’s make culture a party! Everyone bring your cultural food and put on a costume! The racism is present and good percentage of the participants are really expressing deep rooted racism. But some truly don’t want to “understand why it’s wrong” when they are re-enacting what we used to do with culture in elementary schools. Culture was supposed to be fun. “I don’t understand why you are mad now? I thought culture was a party!” Party’s over kids. Put down the head-dress.

I was just thinking about this today and how in elementary school they would have us make Native costumes and pick a Native name when we were learning about Natives (we never learned about how there’s still a very active anti-Native bias, of course, nor did we really discuss the whole STEALING OF LAND thing), and how we had a whole Egyptian-themed party when we were studying Ancient Egypt in middle school (we didn’t discuss that Egypt is still very much a real place with a real culture influenced by a lot of the stuff we studied back then, nor the whitewashing of ancient Egypt that goes on to this day), and it was like a light went on because wow, that’s basically the kind of shit that leads to Coachella.
