The latest #BlackEye  for The Japan Times is up and atcha! This time around we respond to the alarming increase in racist SNS content aimed at the presence of people of African descent living here in Japan, some of which flirts threateningly with Hate Speech, if not crosses that poorly defined line.

V.C. Andrews
“You can trust a few some of the time, and most none of the time. Feel lucky if you have even one to trust all of the time.”
V.C. Andrews, If There Be Thorns

Zora Neale Hurston
“I have known the joy and pain of friendship. I have served and been served. I have made some good enemies for which I am not a bit sorry. I have loved unselfishly, and I have fondled hatred with the red-hot tongs of Hell. That's living.”
Zora Neale Hurston

J.D. Salinger
“I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Zora Neale Hurston
“Half Gods are worshipped with wine and Flowers. Real Gods require Blood.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Grant Morrison
“We are the hands and eyes and ears, the sensitive probing feelers through which the emergent, intelligent universe comes to know its own form and purpose. We bring the thunderbolt of meaning and significance to unconscious matter, blank paper, the night sky. We are already divine magicians, already supergods. Why shouldn't we use all our brilliance to leap in as many single bounds as it takes to a world beyond ours, threatened by overpopulation, mass species extinction, environmental degradation, hunger, and exploitation? Superman and his pals would figure a way out of any stupid cul-de-sac we could find ourselves in - and we made Superman, after all. All it takes is that one magic word.”
Grant Morrison, Supergods: What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us About Being Human
