Meet the New Miniature Donkey Born at Berlin Zoo

Born at Berlin Zoo in June, this Sardinian Miniature Donkey earns its name. When it stands next to its mom, Grisella, and sister, Pink, who are themselves only waist high, the new foal looks positively tiny. This is the second foal for 8-year-old Grisella, who has proven to be loving and experienced in looking after her baby.

Visit ZooBorns to see more photos of the cute little Donkey and to learn more!

wimbledon

Last Wednesday when Roger Federer lost at Wimbledon, the wimbledon tag on tumblr was full of sentiments akin to “he was the reason I was watching”, “I can’t believe this”, “wimbledon sucks now”, etc.

Today, when Serena Williams lost at Wimbledon, the wimbledon tag appears to be much more mixed in its reactions; there are definitely posts that are similar in tone to the ones from when Federer lost, but there are a LOT more approving posts (and a LOT more pictures) concerning her opponent.

(I don’t have posts and reblogs because this is not a tennis blog and I wasn’t bent on reblogging before but now I see I should have been, it would have made for better data…)

Johnny Depp in Rolling Stone — tells Native youth: “You’re still warriors, man”

and you’re still a first class asshole

I’ve been fighting battles my whole life.  My cousins around the world have been fighting battles too, been fighting a hell of a lot harder than I have, and the beast we’re all fighting plays for fuckin’ keeps, man.
and you know…
…It wasn’t that long ago that I had ancestors hunting buffalo from horseback.  Ever been up close to one? I’ve seen them knock over tractors.
Thanks all the same for the patronizing bullshit, Johnny but,
One of my uncles worked as a consultant training militaries in Africa in the wake of their independence from Britain, after his discharge following the Battle of Kaepyong.
My grandfather lost half of his left hand in WWII fighting for a country that didn’t give a shit about him.
One of my mentors received a Nobel Peace Medal, an Eagle feather and official recognition for the roles he played in Cyprus and Bosnia.
I learned how to hunt, how to handle a rifle, a knife and a bow, when I was still in elementary school.
I don’t need some rich white actor from Hollywood telling me that I’m still a fucking warrior.  I’ve been surrounded by warriors my whole life.

I find that person’s response interesting because Johnny Depp has Cherokee heritage on both sides of his family…Yes he appears white due to other parts of his heritage being dominant in his physical appearance, but that doesn’t mean his American Indian heritage is invalid…

he does not have Cherokee blood, he’s just another blood myth wannabe, why is it people that put actors on a pedestals will adamantly spew the same garbage, either saying he’s part Cherokee or Creek and have read some posters say he’s a part of my people the Cree or it could have been a typo, but either way, he’s not a part of the Cree or any of the other 2 and just because he was adopted by a Comanche family does not make him Native.

Holy shit am I sick of people defending this guy’s blood myth.
Frankly, even if he had proven blood, his disconnected fake-ass bullshit would still merit this reaction.

Here for apihtawikosisan’s and atimo-taguay’s commentary.

People of color know how to default to white. We know how to fade to white in our minds. We can, and do place ourselves in white people’s shoes. Effortlessly. Too bad our shoes don’t fit anyone else but us.
