    Former first lady Michelle Obama was a breath of fresh air as usual while making a public appearance in Colorado since leaving the White House for a live armchair conversation with The Women’s Foundation of Colorado President Lauren Casteel. But even as poised and graceful as always, Obama touched on some tough topics, speaking out frankly about the hurt she felt from the racist attacks she received while in the White House. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said when Casteel asked her about the trials of being the first black...

    Want to feel old? Harambe the gorilla has been dead for over a year. We’re due for some viral primate news. Today’s comes courtesy of the Dallas Zoo’s YouTube channel, which posted a video earlier this week of Zola, one of its gorillas, dancing around in a kiddie pool. It is a rare piece of perfect content. Excuse me while I begin raising funds for an all-gorilla reboot of Flashdance.

    NOBODY PUTS GORILLA IN THE CORNER!! Here's 14-year-old up-and-coming dancer Zola showing off his moves in a kiddie pool at the Dallas Zoo ... which begs the question -- WHY ISN'T HE A JABBAWOCKY YET?! The video has gone gorilla viral -- and already got the "Flashdance" treatment ... and it's the best thing you're gonna see all day. So, sit back, peel a banana, groom your friend's back, beat your chest, cut up a Jane Goodall documentary, scale the Empire State building and enjoy. RIP Harambe.
  • ESPN gets itself sued by not knowing the difference between ‘guerrilla’ and ‘gorilla’

    Racism everywhere! You already know that ESPN has fallen very far, from its heyday as the global leader in sports programming to its current pathetic state as a pusher of left-wing social sensibilities that uses sports a foil. ESPN celebrates on-air personalities like Tony Kornheiser, Michael Wilbon and Stephen A. Smith for their courageous liberal pronouncements. (For the record, I love Smith . . . but he is what he is.) ESPN fires conservatives like Curt Schilling who express their opinions, even when they do so off the air and completely apart from their role on ESPN.

    The oldest known gorilla to be born in captivity, a female named Colo, has died in the US aged 60. Colo passed away in her sleep overnight at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Ohio, less than a month after celebrating her birthday. She was born at the zoo in December 1956 and is believed to be the first gorilla ever born in captivity. Colo, a Western lowland gorilla, lived for more than 20 years longer than the average captive gorilla. Despite recently having a malignant tumour removed, zookeepers said that she had been recovering well and the cause of...
  • Talk of Write-In Votes For Harambe Numbering Thousands Sweeping the Internet After 2016 Election

    Now that the dust has settled and Donald Trump has been elected the next President of the United States, those who supported his opponent – Hillary Clinton – are analyzing what went wrong that cost her in the elections. According to some, it was thousands of write-in votes for a famous gorilla who lost his life earlier this year. Reports of write-in votes for Harambe, the gorilla who was shot and killed in May at the Cinciniatti Zoo when he was holding onto a child that had climbed into his enclosure, have taken over the internet. While write-in votes are...

    GOP establishment LOSER and walking-corpse John McCain “disavowed” Donald Trump and withdrew his (useless and fake) endorsement today because he was “OFFENDED” by Trump’s “guy talk” comments from 11 years ago. However, it appears that “Mr. Offended,” actually offended a quite a few people himself, when he told a “JOKE” about a woman being RAPED by a GORILLA. Yes, that’s right.
  • Humans aren’t the only great apes that can ‘read minds’

    Science ^ | v. Morrell
    All great mind reading begins with chocolate. That’s the basis for a classic experiment that tests whether children have something called theory of mind—the ability to attribute desires, intentions, and knowledge to others. When they see someone hide a chocolate bar in a box, then leave the room while a second person sneaks in and hides it elsewhere, they have to guess where the first person will look for the bar. If they guess “in the original box,” they pass the test, and show they understand what’s going on in the first person’s mind—even when it doesn’t match reality. For...

    As you have likely heard, on this past Saturday a 4-year-old boy fell into the gorilla habitat at the Cincinnati Zoo. A gut-wrenching decision was made by the zoo to shoot and kill the gorilla to protect the boy and rescue him from the habitat. The fallout over the incident has taken a decidedly racist turn as the public has now discovered that the boy and his parents are black. Laura Collins, in Cincinnati writing for the Daily Mail, published an absolutely despicable piece on the young boy’s parents, including every detail of his father’s criminal history.As you have likely...
  • What Harambe the gorilla tells us about our culture

    06/01/2016 7:02:14 AM PDT · by Morgana · 41 replies ^ | may 30, 2016 | Kristi Burton Brown
    Over Memorial Day weekend, the internet has been exploding with comments, articles, and rants related to the death of Harambe, the 17-year-old silverback gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo. While the entire situation was harrowing, terrifying, and tragic, what many of these vocalized opinions reveal about our culture is infinitely troubling. There’s not a legitimate debate over whether the little boy who crawled and fell into Harambe’s habitat would have died if the gorilla hadn’t been shot. CNN reported: Officials made the decision to shoot Harambe because the boy was in “imminent danger.” They feared a tranquilizer would take too long...

    On Saturday a four-year old boy fell into a gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. Sadly the gorilla, named Harambe, was shot and killed by zoo officials to save the life of the child, sparking outrage on social media. The most ludicrous of the objections came from those who actually believed the gorilla was killed because of racism. Conservative author and commentator Mark Dice uncovered some of the most outrageous tweets, including a slew that referred to the child as a “white boy” and one that called the killing an act of “white privilege.” As Dice pointed out in his...
