My brain has served up some awful nightmares this week. Had one about accidentally driving off one of the big bridges in Portland, closing my eyes shut, and listening to the wind rip past the car windows, knowing I was about to die as I counted down...

Yeah, exactly! It was really insulting in this context too (talking about food history), because it's not like the Aborigines are the best or only example of early hominid cooking styles, and it implicitly sets up a scale of "less to more civilized" that's just wrong.

I've seen it often enough to notice it recurring, so I suppose so. =/

They're so pure, so unstained by civilization.

"One day, that simple hominid would evolve from gnawing raw mastodon, to intricate meals of hundreds of courses in slightly less primitive Mughal India, to the pinnacle of civilized cooking: Jello salad."

This shit pisses me off. On top of being profoundly racist and colonialist, it's awful science and awful storytelling. As if food history is some faux evolutionary ladder taking us to a pinnacle that so happens to be white people's cooking.

You know what else would be a great and accurate stand-in for primitive? Try a white woman eating celery, maybe! Or a crowd of dudebros around the grill destroying a steak!

Funny how you never see, I dunno, a chimp eating an apple juxtaposed against a white guy eating an apple as an example of our connection to early hominid eating patterns.

I'm looking at you, Michael Pollan "Cooked" documentary on Netflix. FFS, it's not even subtle.

Reminder that the filmmaking trope where they juxtapose clips of scientists talking about early hominids against clips of actual living indigenous humans going about their daily business is REALLY friggin' racist.

Nakano Takeko was 21 when she went into battle, was fatally shot in the chest, and asked her sister to behead her to prevent becoming a war trophy in death.
