Did you know that there actually exists something called "cultural appropriation" (White folks wearing dreadlocks, sombreros, dead-dresses, etc)? Yeah, I'll take, "unimpeachable evidence that the West and its minorities have officially run out of childish, perplexing, and idiotic things to be offended by", for a thousand, Alex.
And if you don't think that this is stupid, just try and imagine how you'd feel if a white person had accosted a black woman just because she had dyed her hair blond and was wearing green contact lenses. Yeah, huh?
Frankly I'm sick and tired of these brown whiners! So hell yes, I disagree that "cultural appropriation typically involves members of a dominant group exploiting the culture of less privileged groups — often with little understanding of the latter's history, experience and traditions".
That quote from an article that explains why cultural appropriation is "wrong". More from this dumbass commentary below.
|Why Cultural Appropriation Is a Problem: Cultural appropriation remains a concern for a variety of reasons. For one, this sort of "borrowing" is exploitative because it robs minority groups of the credit they deserve. Art and music forms that originated with minority groups come to be associated with members of the dominant group. As a result, the dominant group is deemed innovative and edgy, while the disadvantaged groups they "borrow" from continue to face negative stereotypes that imply they're lacking in intelligence and creativity. In addition, when members of a dominant group appropriate the cultures of others, they often reinforce stereotypes about minority groups.

More whining. By the way, I find it totally perplexing because I'm White. I'll admit that. But so what? Anyway, White people "stealing credit"? Isn't stealing something Black people do? I'm pretty sure it is. Aside from Statist assholes like Bernie Sanders stealing on behalf of the government, I'm pretty sure it's Black people who commit most of these crimes (and get sent to prison for them in higher percentages than Whites).
Which is why I say that, if you're a minority that whines about this bullshit... fuck you, you make me sick!
