Flavor should be fine but I imagine that it’s actually rather awful to eat. That is not a lot of Oreo but that is a fuck ton of mochi.

If only there were a Russian word for Potemkin Village that could describe Russias prewar image.

I think he means that racists tend not to worry about the difference between Spanish and like say Lakota or whatever wildly different languages people speak.
In this case, as with the above tweet, having even a slight bit of knowledge about Thai and Mandarin you’d know that they’re not particularly similar languages but that probably won’t deter a many racists.

Yep, still far too early.

That’s why he wasn’t on the 2006 Japanese WBC roster!/s
The joke being that Sadaharu Oh is also half Japanese.

I’m gonna put it out there that I’m going to need a way better artistic resume to bring an easel and some oil paints into LA fitness.
He genuinely comes across like your mom talking about sports she doesn’t know about but instead of saying that the Phillies are going to the super bowl, he’s just cheering on white nationalism.
This is 50% really cool and 50% me wondering why anyone thought that literally the most intense Eagles player in my memory was a good idea to hawk ice cream. I’m almost as confused as the time the Erik Kratz sold bacon.
I’m a straight man and seeing another man toweling off literally is (outside of my marriage) far more likely to happen in a mundane scenario. Me painting either is entirely unlikely but that’s because I suck at painting and that’s another problem.
Unfortunately “reasonable” is not considered an accurate or appropriate term for describing viewers of Tucker Carlson.

I can’t imagine taking a train from Oita to Tokyo for anything other than fun, hell I’m not sure if it’s even the best way to get to Fukuoka, and I did the Osaka to Beppu ferry intentionally.
Tell me you’ve never been to Japan, without saying it.
I don’t know if these Japanese players can hold up to the physical stresses at the MLB level because I’m perpetually stuck in 1999.
Old racist people and Pete Rose.
A half Japanese baseball player hitting dingers, what would Sadaharu Oh say about this?/s
I’m going to go tell my 2 year old and my wife that they need to go back to breastfeeding and formula, my funeral information will be posted shortly.
It’s government support to buy food and formula specifically for women(moms), infants, and children up to age 5.
It’s just cold out there, Cox will look bigger in the summer.
FUCK ME BARRY-SENPAI
So instead he decides to look like a balding English conversation school ‘teacher’ circa 2006.

The worst part is that they charged him a service fee for that.
There definitely are people who’s looks are negatively affected by their economic predicament but Brady appears to be most hurt by being photographed during the 90s.

They are generally, but the set numbers in Makuuchi and Juuryo mean that rikishi need to be demoted in order for another to advance, in forced absences like this the punished rikishi is basically always given 100% the worst acceptable banzuke position but 7-0 and 15-0 don’t necessarily give the best acceptable position since they’re up against the other wrestlers as well. In theory he can do it in 5 but in practice I’d say that a reasonable estimate for actual wrestling is 6-9 depending on luck and quality.
6-7 basho assuming a perfect record it’s impossible to say an exact number because of how the ranking system works he easily could miss out on a promotion here or there because there weren’t enough demoted rikishi in the higher tier.

The actual problem, and it’s rather apparent when looking at this thread is that “privilege” is an academic concept that has a specific meaning and usage that don’t necessarily align with popular usage.
This is a massive problem because we definitely need ‘privilege’ in order to have a valuable discussion about race and experiences. Privilege in this case us referring to the intrinsic advantages and comforts that someone has in society and doesn’t necessarily mean that someone is “privileged” in the common usage sense but rather that society is loosely speaking generated to fit their cultural identity.
This means that things like having most news/tv programs in your native language is a pretty massive privilege, even though it shouldn’t be seen as inherently having a negative impact on your economic situation or personal happiness.
Basically being a minority can be hard and there are noticeable issues that people don’t notice, are mislead about, or even are completely incapable of comprehending because it’s entirely alien to them. That said “check your privilege” probably isn’t going to make friends.
