If only I could actually, legitimately be surprised. Intensely dismayed, but in no way shocked. Stupid Hollywood. Why you have to be so vaguely (and sometimes not-so-vaguely) racist? Only white people can act. Only white men, actually. Straight ones. Born with penises.
Maybe it’s the lighting or the coolly raised eyebrow, but there’s something very glamorous about this portrait of Nurse Aiko Hamaguchi. This photograph was taken by Ansel Adams while Hamaguchi was interned at Manzanar internment camp.
