IDK how casting Bagels Cucumbers as Khan isn’t disrespectful to Gene Roddenberry tbh.
That man fought networks tooth and nail to have people of different races on his show. He fought long and hard to have an interracial kiss on TV.

A small viking knife, used as both a tool and hunting utensil and was also generally mandatory for most viking women to carry at all times for their protection.
The handles were made from deer antler and the blade was pressed into it and bound tightly in leather to hold it in place. The above is a modern day representation.
Brazilian journalist sentenced for racism against ‘ignorant’ Indians

A journalist in Brazil has been found guilty of discrimination against Indians, who he described as ‘ignorant’ and ‘dirty’.
In an article published by the news site Jornal NH, Ivar Paulo Hartmann stated, ‘The tribes remaining in Brazil today are composed of semi-civilized, dirty, ignorant and vagabond individuals, living off white people’s largesse’.
Hartmann has been ordered to carry out two years of community service, and pay a fine to the Kaingang Indians of southern Brazil.
Judge Salise Monteiro Sanchotene stated, ‘Freedom of expression must not incite racial intolerance and violence, which compromise the principle of equality of all before the law’.
Racist descriptions of tribal people in the media reinforce the incorrect colonial idea that they have not changed over time. They are extremely dangerous, as they are often used to justify the persecution or forced ‘development’ of tribal peoples and the theft of their land in the name of ‘progress’. Time and again this has proved disastrous.
Survival’s Stamp it Out campaign seeks to defend indigenous peoples’ lives and rights by putting a stop to racist descriptions of them in the media.
Australia’s media regulator ACMA found the country’s Channel 7 guilty of racism after Survival complained about a report which labelled Brazil’s Suruwaha tribe as child murderers, ‘Stone Age’ relics and ‘one of the worst human rights violators in the world’.

Handcarved Pacific Yew wands and Western Red Cedar awl
Spirals enhance the flow of energies through the wood as well as represent the serpertine energies of the Yew tree and the land.
Yew is revered as one of the most sacred trees around the world and scientists believe they are the only tree that is in fact immortal. It is a very hard wood, very durable, and difficult to carve. Our ancestors swore oaths under them, buried their dead at their roots, and used yew wands to open doors to the underworld and transverse it safely. Some scholars believe Yew is actually Yggdrasil, the World Tree of Norse mythology.
