It’s bad enough it’s happened to DRAGONBALL Z, and it’s bad enough Scarlett Johansson is continuing this racist trope by sticking to her role in the upcoming GHOST IN THE SHELL.

“A Moment’s Worth” will always have an ongoing journey; in being discovered by others and analyzed and dissected for its multiple meanings.
