I fail to believe this is an accurate quote, via the "Mum". No one in America calls their mom that.

But plenty of non-Americans spell it like that, so it could be that she said it in an interview or something and a non-American captioned the picture.

What's wrong with being a maid?
you literally get paid to do household chores.
If you were to work in 5 star accommodation or for a rich person, you'd get a **** ton of money for being organised.

pretty sure what they are referring to is the fact that for years black people were labelled servants, and seeing one that was 'equal' was amazing

I find Nichelle Nichols insanely attractive
Especially in her evil sports bra in the episode 'Mirror Mirror'.

I have doubts about this quote...but in other news Star Trek was one of the leading shows to break down the racial divide and was the first show to broadcast an interracial kiss

I just remember a joke my dad told me when I see her.

Why is Lieutenant Uhura brown?

Because William Shatner.

Star Trek is pretty unrealistic.

They let an Asian man drive, a Russian shoot, a Black woman talk on the phone, and a Jewish guy command...it's a wonder they got anywhere.

"Well I'm going to leave star trek because I've had an offer to- - -"
"YOU CANNOT. YOU CANNOT. Don't you understand what this man has achieved? For the first time on television we will be seen as we should be seen every day. As intelligent, qualified, beautiful [...] sing, dance, who can go into space. Who can be lawyers, who can be doctors, who can be teachers, who can be professors. Who we are in this day and yet is not seen on television... Until now."
- Nichelle Nichols discussing her leaving the show with Martin Luther King.

www.npr.org/2011/01/17/132942461/Star-Treks-Uhura-Reflects-On-MLK-Encounter

Nichelle on NPR states that Whoopi, when working on Star Trek, came up to her and told her this same phrase.

i think my favorite star trek story is that NIchelle Nichols was actually considering quitting the show and MLK talked her into staying

When William Shatner (Kirk) kissed Uhura, he was the first white man to kiss a black woman on TV

I swear a fact I will remember till the day I die is that her name on the show (Uhura) came from the swahili (bear with me for mistakes this was couple of years ago when I got bored in history and read through a Civil Rights Movement textbook) "uhuru" which means free or freedom or something related. Star trek also had the first interracial kiss on tv between Uhura and Kirk (if my memory serves me well). TLR = Star trek is a cool guy and doesn't afraid of anything.

Would be interesting if true; I liked Goldberg's guest role on TNG
User avatar #71 - kommandantvideo (03/16/2014) [-]
Except Whoopi Goldberg (Caryn Johnson) is from the US, so this story is fake. because people in the US don't say mum.

Also a fun fact, I am currently being taught by a person who taught Caryn Johnson. I'm a beast
