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.
Hunter S. Thompson with Johnny Depp
