I challenge thee, do not cross this bridge alone

Tena koe! Aotearoa born and raised , I'm a white-passing guy of Samoan, Māori (Ngāpuhi, Te Rarawa) and Pākehā descent. Being a personal blog, this'll be including all things that are good such as snow leopards + all cats, music (power and speed metal especially), social justice, politics, video games, science fiction and fantasy. Possibly with my own added commentary as a free gift to you! Trying to connect to tikanga Māori for the first time.

people (and bethesda, jesus christ) tend to forget that according to the lore, there are multiple types of Khajiiti. We only typically see the Suthay-Rhats, but Khajit can be born with multiple levels of feline appearance dependent on the moon cycle they are born under. On one end of the spectrum you have some Khajiit who look practically like Bosmer with cat whiskers, and on the other end you have Khajiit who legit just look like housecats but still have sentience and intelligence. For instance, this would be considered to be a perfectly normal Khajiit family in Elsweyr.

THE ONGOING SAGA OF THE FRAGILE WHITE

The Daily Show aired its long awaited segment on the Washington, D.C., NFL team name, in which fans were confronted by Natives on the set.
Before it even aired, the segment proved controversial. The satirical cable television news program had recruited team fans for the segment via Twitter; four were ultimately chosen to participate. But those participants told the Washington Post they felt like they were attacked.
Kelli O’Dell, who says it was unfair for The Daily Show to have her debate Amanda Blackhorse—the lead plaintiff in Blackhorse v. Pro-Football, Inc., which resulted in cancelling six of the team’s trademarks—says she felt like she was placed “in danger.” O’Dell later called authorities to pull The Daily Show tapes she had consented to appear on:

Two days later, O’Dell said she called D.C. police and tried to submit a police report, but authorities told her no crime had been committed.


People want their right to be racist. But the minute they approach facing real life consequences—and mild ones, given what they should expect for years of violence and slurs—look how they shake and cry. Look how they flee and fly to the po-lice, understanding fully the institutional role played by cops.

she tried to file a police report, hahahahaha! foolish.

unbelievable

Pacific leaders calling for action at UN climate change summit

Aotearoa needs to stand in solidarity with our Pacific siblings in the battle against climate change deniers and political indifference, because they’re currently on the front lines watching their homes sink.  Our own Government is insistent that we’re too small to make a difference but it’s painfully obvious that National is not at all interested in committing.  They’ve been abundantly clear that their priority is building more roads and consuming/acquiring more fossil fuels.  They’d rather wait to see what other more “important” governments do.  

That’s complete nonsense.  From our women claiming suffrage to the Prime Minister setting himself firmly against the American nuclear fleets, we’ve been world leaders before regarding controversial issues, and we need to rise again.  We cannot just stand idly by while our Pacific neighbors drown for the sake of someone else’s profit.

We know that in order for us to make meaningful progress in addressing the challenges of climate change there is a need for strong and decisive, global leadership. So we must get away from the ‘wait-and-see-who-is-doing-what’ style of leadership, for the sake of our children and their children.

- Anote Tong, President of Kiribati

Police would rather share solidarity with a murderer than the community they’ve sworn to serve and protect.

HAPPENING NOW (9.23.14): Police responded in large numbers to a “possible looting” at a local shop in Ferguson. The problem— this was suspiciously well-timed with a call to march/protest tonight, after the burning of Mike Brown’s memorial on Canfield. We’re talking within minutes of folks posting about it on Twitter. Stay woke, y’all. This story is far from over. #staywoke #farfromover

In Sociology, this week’s module is on propaganda and marketing.  For homework, we were asked to make a poster for an imaginary campaign either for a made-up product or a current social issue.  This is mine.
