Madison why did I start watching this with you??? I can’t stop!!!!!!!!! David and John Francis Dayley remind me too much of eachother but they don’t even look that alike man
So CNN just showed a report on the royal visit to New Zealand, which not only actively mocked the cultural traditions of the Maori, comparing the haka to the mating dance of the emu, but also denigrated the cultural traditions of many other groups as being ‘native’ and generally silly. It’s this kind of shoddy journalism and blatant racism that perpetuates an idea of multiculturalism being some kind of childish joke and trivialises the identity of 15% of NZ’s population. If you want to do something about it, there is a complaint here, and the petition associated with it here. .
So I finally watched this and well, I wish I didn’t. I also wish I was more native so I could go off on a rant about how utterly disrespectful this whole segment was. Like I actually cannot believe that they just outright mocked a tradition that is the highest honor you could give to an outsider of the country. When they said the haka was a combination of a Chippendale’s performance and an imu’s mating dance I think my soul died.
It’s just so disappointing to watch this. People need to have more respect.
I wish they made a roll that was just a California roll+ahi
That is my ideal roll
Please lord baby Jesus help me acquire this roll
My ideal lunch right now (and always):
