America, Animals, and Books: rgfellows: So, in my art history class today, my professor was talking about something that is so fuckin awesome. These are warrior shields from the Wahgi people of Papua New Guinea. The warriors paint them with imagery meant to symbolize animals who have traits they wish to embody in battle. These depictions are intended to give the person using it the powers of what theyre depicting. Now. Look at this Wahgi shield: Hmm. That looks a bit different from the others That looks VERY different. Why, it looks like The Phantom.. American comic book character by Lee Falk. And that's because it is. The Wahgi people were isolated from the rest of the "modern" world until I933. They came into contact with WWll service men who shared some aspects of western culture with the tribesmen. In particular, they showed them the comic books they read while shipped out. The Wahgi loved them. In particular, the Wahgi adored the stories of the Phantom, who wasn't even particularly popular in its home of America. He is so popular that the few Wahgi who can read english will read the comics out loud in the village center and hold out the pages for everyone to see, so the whole tripe can enjoy them and marvel at the Phantoms might in battle. They identify with the Phantom because he came from a jungle territory, like them, wore a mask to fight, like them, and came from a long line of warriors, which the Wahgi, who worshiped their ancestors, deeply respected. Further, despite not really having superpowers, the Phantom is strong, clever, and incredibly fast. He was so fast that his enemies began to believe that he was impervious to bullets and could not be killed. Therefore, the Wahgi began painting HIM on their shields to invoke HIS abilities in battle. There are TONS of Phantom-Wahgi shiclds out So, you might think that you're huge comic book fan, but the Wahgi have taken their Phantom fandom to the next level and have made the Phantom a fucking talisman to carry into battle fo【 strength. This is officially the best confluence of comics and real life in history

I’m curious as to wether or not she is aware. I’m white, so I really have no idea but I can’t even imagine…. Sometimes it’s so hard to understand why black people even go near us.</p> </blockquote> <p>She’s not American. Instead of assuming that Lupita is stupid, everyone is American, and human rights violations are heritable traits, consider that people shouldn’t separate by race. </p> </blockquote> <p>also, while Benedict’s ancestors owned slaves, he has not. shut the fuck up with your white guilt. it’s embarrassing to watch.</p> </blockquote> <p>That first response is objectively the most braindead thing I’ve heard today.</p>

The British killed the men and women of the tribes and took away their food supply when they first arrived. Later they tried to “civilize” the Tasmanians and subject them to foreign diseases to kill off the last of them. The last full-blood Tasmanian woman was said to have lived until the year1888.</p> </blockquote> <p>Wow!</p> </blockquote> <p>at this point, what <i>isnt </i>racist in this country??!!</p> </blockquote> <p>WHAT THE FUCK</p> </blockquote> <p>Wow 😳😥</p> </blockquote> <p><figure data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="280" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/6e5c4b741b4a495ccab3c70c04801fd9/tumblr_inline_nuqohbARmv1r91wdr_500.gif" alt="image" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="280"/></figure></p> <p><b>As a History Concentration with a rather unsettling love for Looney Tunes and other classic cartoons, I never thought that I’d see the day where my two completely unrelated passions merged up so wonderfully.</b></p> <p><b>And yet, here we are.</b></p> <p><b>So let’s talk about Tasmania, shall we?</b></p> <p><b>Actually, pretty much everything that the OP said about Tasmania is correct.</b></p> <p><b>By the way, her name was Truganini (Nickname: Lallah Rookh.<i>)</i> If you’re going to use her legacy to try to criticize an old cartoon character you should at least give her the common courtesy of a name.</b></p> <p><b>Now then, let’s talk about Looney Tunes.</b></p> <p><b>Or more specifically, let us talk about the Tasmanian Devil.</b></p> <p><b>Taz for short.</b></p> <p><b>Great character.</b></p> <p><b>Fun, energetic, hungry, and <i>not a racist portrayal in any way, shape, or form.</i></b></p> <p><b>The statement that Taz is a racist portrayal of the Tasmanian people is <i>completely and one hundred percent wrong.</i></b></p> <p><b>Now I know what you’re thinking…</b></p> <p><b>“Alright marauders4evr, what <i>is </i>the Tasmanian Devil based off of?”<br/></b></p> <p><b>Well, Im glad that you asked.</b></p> <p><b>Gather ‘round and listen closely now because this is going to be one of the greatest revelations that you will ever hear in your mortal lives.</b></p> <p><b>The Tasmanian Devil…</b></p> <p><b>…is based off of the Tasmanian Devil!</b></p> <p><b>Yeah!</b></p> <p><b>It’s a real animal!</b></p> <figure data-orig-width="250" data-orig-height="163"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/09f7806bd3aeae2a8a28051cef0b1a0d/tumblr_inline_nuqoutIf6p1r91wdr_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="250" data-orig-height="163"/></figure><p><b>An energetic animal who eats everything in its sight.<br/></b></p> <p><b>And Robert McKimson based a character off of it.</b></p> <p><b>Speaking of one of the great men behind Looney Tunes…</b></p> <p><b>Let’s talk about Mel Blanc!</b></p> <p><b>I love him!</b></p> <p><b>I wish that I could have met him!</b></p> <p><b>He’s one of my late heroes.</b></p> <p><b>Phenomenal voice actor.</b></p> <p><b>The best that has ever existed.</b></p> <p><b>The Man of 1000 Voices he’s called.</b></p> <p><b>(And that’s an underestimate!)</b></p> <p><b>The point is that he took a lot of pride in his work.</b></p> <p><b>So what did he base Taz’s dialect off of?</b></p> <p><b>I can tell you right now that it wasn’t the Tasmanian people.</b></p> <p><b>Mel Blanc based the sound of the Tasmanian Devil…</b></p> <p><b>…off of the Tasmanian Devil!</b></p> <p><b>Here’s a clip of Taz’s dialect:</b></p> <figure class="tmblr-embed tmblr-full" data-provider="youtube" data-orig-width="459" data-orig-height="344" data-url="https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DEd0Hg7stjHE"><iframe width="540" height="405" id="youtube_iframe" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Ed0Hg7stjHE?feature=oembed&amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;origin=https://safe.txmblr.com&amp;wmode=opaque" frameborder="0"></iframe></figure><p><b>And here’s a clip of the Tasmanian Devil’s scream:</b></p> <figure class="tmblr-embed tmblr-full" data-provider="youtube" data-orig-width="459" data-orig-height="344" data-url="https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DE3RjAh8PRTQ"><iframe width="540" height="405" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/E3RjAh8PRTQ?feature=oembed&amp;enablejsapi=1&amp;origin=https://safe.txmblr.com&amp;wmode=opaque" frameborder="0"></iframe></figure><p><b>(Chilling, ain’t it?)</b></p> <p><b>(On a side note, I just love to imagine Mel in the recording booth, screaming and growling before calmly doing Bugs’ voice!)</b></p> <p><b>In conclusion…</b></p> <p><b>What happened to the Tasmanian people truly is saddening and I wish that it hadn’t happened.</b></p> <p><b>THE TASMANIAN DEVIL (TAZ) IS NOT A RACIST PORTRAYAL IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM</b></p> <p><b>THE TASMANIAN DEVIL IS A REAL ANIMAL!</b></p> <p><b>MEL BLANC WAS AWESOME AND DESERVES YOUR UTMOST RESPECT!</b></p> <p><i><b>T-T-T-T-T-T-THAT’S ALL FOLKS!</b></i></p> </blockquote> <p>Fabulous</p> </blockquote> <p>There’s enough actual, legitimate racism in this world. Speak out against that instead of making shit up. </p> </blockquote> <p>I thought it was common knowledge that all the animals in Looney Tunes were based on actual animals, and aren’t meant to represent people.</p> </blockquote> <p>And by the way, Tasmanian Aboriginals are still around. Truganini was the last full-blooded Palawa, but that doesn’t mean they are “extinct” as those reductive infographics would have you believe. Doesn’t matter how much milk you put in a cup of coffee, it’s still a cup of coffee, and just because Tasmanian aboriginals today are mixed race doesn’t mean they’re not still aboriginal with a living culture and a strong connection to their ancestors and their history. </p> <p>On Bruny Island, Truganini’s birthplace, which the Nuenone people called Lunnawanna-Alonnah, there is a thriving cultural centre called Weetapoona. The government restored land to Tasmanian aboriginals a few years back. There they are doing some fantastic work to revive their customs, work with archaeologists, as well as achieve reconciliation. </p> <p>Colonists certainly committed incomprehensible atrocities. Kidnapping, rape, murder, massacre, theft of land, even theft of aboriginal bodies. Not content with taking their lives and exiling them from country, they took bodies as trophies and sent them across the sea, away from land and ancestors. As a way of excusing their atrocities, perhaps, colonisers spread the idea that Tasmanians were the most backward and least evolved of all human beings, making them valuable “specimens.” It was Truganini’s greatest fear that she would be made a souvenir after she died, and unfortunately her fears came true. It took many, many decades before her body was returned to country. I could go on and on, but my point is that it is so important that we don’t spread this idea of extinction and acknowledge them instead as a living culture who must be allowed to define themselves, their past and their future. Spreading nonsense and reductive half-truths like the one above only makes it worse. </p> </blockquote> <p>OP is either an idiot who can’t do research or a liar.</p></blockquote>
