My start for Sunday was a rocky one. That’s not entirely surprising as I went drink for drink with someone drinking beer. I woke up at about 5 or 6 in the morning and eased my way back in to being …
Hey, I’m back. I’ve had a lot happen in my life in the last 3 months. Between losing 2 of my grandparents and losing my job… I’ve had an interesting 3 months. I’m getting back on that horse and giving a big ol’ middle finger to those three months… there will be more writing.
Long time, no hear. Well, here I am with a review that seems both timely and appropriate. So, enjoy! http://www.whichwaytohollywood.com/2014/05/02/wir-sind-die-jaeger-attack-on-titan-review-spoiler-free/

is an example of the sort of question that sometimes gets asked.
Well let’s look at that. If children were writing stories where the race of characters was varied and random, there might be some merit in claiming that children are colourblind. However, even proponents of racial colourblindness do not argue that all people are White… and English. They argue that race no longer matters.
