People always ask why Tmac’s efficiency dropped in 03-04. THIS⬆️⬆️ is why, defenses threw double and triple teams at him every single night and he no one to take the pressure off him. Look at how 3 Miami defenders contest this shot and he still nailed it😂 to lead the league in scoring under these circumstances is ridiculous

Let's Go to Chinatown Los Angeles!
You can speak up and fight against the current occurrences of Asian hate in the US by supporting foundations like this, or search here to find a way to support in your community!

Chinatown Los Angeles as we know it today is actually 'New' Chinatown and has a lengthy history of coming to be! What an exponential loss it would have been for everyone who lives or visits LA, if the Chinese Americans of the time hadn’t worked and fought hard to make Chinatown a reality!
Come along with me as I discover the history of Old and New Chinatown, how the Exclusion Act of 1882 impacted its founding, how descendants of Chinese immigrants keep the traditions alive and how you can help preserve and sustain this and Chinatowns across the US!

[New Chinatown Mural, Chinatown LA]
IMMIGRATION AND THE EXCLUSION ACT OF 1882
While the Opium Wars were raging between China and Great Britain in the mid 1800s, the citizens of China were impacted by floods and drought, combined with the country’s decline into debt, many Chinese farmers and their families were out of work.
During this same time California was experiencing its Gold Rush and so some Chinese immigrated to the US in hopes for finding gold and starting a new life. However, when they arrived, over some 20,000 through San Francisco in 1852, it was anything but open and welcoming arms from Americans. Racially charged violence, discriminatory taxation and the inability to testify for ones self in court made life in this new world even more of a challenge than it needed to be. American citizens pleaded with the government to take a stand for white supremacy and in 1882 then President Chester A. Arthur signed into law the Chinese Exclusion Act with the intent of stopping the influx of immigrant from China, as well as barring the current Chinese immigrants from gaining citizenship.
It was the first time in history a country made it illegal for a specific race of people to immigrate and it lasted for 60 terrible years. During this time the racial violence, discrimination and injustice against persons of Chinese descent, as well as those mistaken for Chinese immigrants, was seemingly permitted to rage on with little to no real repercussions against assailants, usually of the white race.

[Art Salon Chinatown, Chinatown LA]
The stipulations of The Chinese Exclusion Act included everything from what classification of Chinese immigrant could or could not immigrate to the US, such as laborers versus merchants, diplomats, students, clergymen and travelers, up to and including barring women and children from immigrating in the politicians effort to prevent Chinese families from being started and putting down roots in America.
(If you’re interested in reading more about the lengthy history and facts about of the exclusion of Chinese women in America, I highly recommend the book ‘Entry denied : exclusion and the Chinese community in America, 1882-1943 edited by Sucheng Chan’, specifically chapter 4 written by Sucheng Chan, ‘The Exclusion of Chinese Women, 1870-1943’.)

[Mandarin Plaza, Chinatown LA]
OLD CHINATOWN TAKES ROOT
By the 1870’s an identifiable Chinatown in Los Angeles began to form. Being only a short alley about 50 ft wide and one block long, what is now considered ‘Old’ Chinatown housed about 200 Chinese residents and businesses consisting of laundromats, produce vendors and various other shops.
As Chinatown grew into the early 20th century it not only boasted a population that swelled to over 3,000 people but also 15 or so streets, 200 building units, a sophisticated Chinese Opera Theater, 3 temples, a newspaper and its own telephone exchange! Acknowledged as Chinatown from 1890 to 1910, it also became a popular stop for the first breed of American tourists!

technically it would be Romanova/Romanovna since she's a she
yes,   her name is romanova,   not romanovna   ( that spelling would be done as a patronymic instead of a surname? ),   romanov,   or romanoff,   but that post   &   the statement that it’s romanov instead of romanoff that i made is specifically in reference to the fact that nat uses natasha romanov as her primary alias,   with most people only really knowing her as such,   instead of using her actual name of nata/lia ivan/ovna roman/ova   &   i hate the fact that marble always misspells it as romanoff,   not that i think her name is romanov.

re: the disney thing, if you ever have time & energy & are so inclined, would be very interested to read!
i mean mostly i was just gonna watch each of the films (snow white, cinderella, and sleeping beauty, these being the films actually based on fairy tales & made during walt disney’s lifetime) and compare them to the original stories (or like, the ones most similar to them/that they were most likely based on. iirc, two grimms tales and a perrault? or the other way around? i’d have to check) and play spot-the-difference
i have some rly basic knowledge of walt disney’s personal life and politics that i was gonna tie in there, but tbh i haven’t rly started hardcore research into that yet and probably won’t bcos that’s way too much for a relatively small project
i mean i might do all three movies for funsies over the summer if ur rly interested, but i don’t have like, special expert knowledge or anything, i was just gonna make lists, you could probably do that urself if ur so inclined, my take on it is not Special
