Cultural appropriation isn’t racist — Let’s call it “cultural appreciation” instead

I love Halloween, but not the inevitable whining about “cultural appropriation” when someone dares to wear an “offensive” ethnic costume.

    The people that scream cultural appropration are allways assholes and they should be relentlessly mocked, until they cry like an Indian.

    But wait, if white cultures are so evil and bad, but we aren’t allowed to take on aspects of other cultures, how are we ever supposed to improve?

      Thats the point!
      We are suposed to be perpetually evil; an eternal enemy.

      “White cultures” are doomed either way. On the one hand, they are accused of cultural appropriation. If white cultures cease to culturally appropriate elements of other cultures, they will be deemed “xenophobic”. White can’t do right, apparently. Hence, I recommend that white cultures adopt the highly popular “fuck you” attitude common in Middle eastern cultures. Oh, wait! That would be cultural appropriation again….

    A true story from last century:
    Sir Cliff Richard OBE is a well-known and appreciated (and white*) pop singer in the UK (& world wide?). From WIKI (but it is still true):

    In 1998, Richard pulled a stunt on the radio stations by releasing a single “Can’t Keep This Feeling In” under the anonymous stage name CR. It was played frequently on Climax Radio, Choice FM and at times) on BBC Radio 1, making it to the top ten in Music Week magazine. It also topped the British rhythm and blues charts before Richard revealed his true identity and accused the stations of ageism. They immediately stopped airing the song after they knew his real identity. In an interview for Icons Revisited on BBC Radio 2, he said: “Because it was a slow, black rhythm and blues style and had a lot of falsetto, I felt I wasn’t too recognisable. I wanted to test this out because I was not being played on the radio. One comment came back saying ‘we don’t know the band but the singer’s wicked’…

    They loved the black-sounding song but a white man can’t sing it, especially Sir Cliff.

  • Wow! I just under six and a half minutes she just took whatever fun there was still in Halloween and dyed it the same lifeless straw blond color she has camouflaged her brown hair with.

    Nothing is what it used to be anymore:

    Firesign Theater: “How can you be two places at once when you are not anywhere at all.”

    The Who: “Substitute me for him / Substitute my coke for gin / Substitute you for my mum / At least I’ll get my washing done

    Cultural appropriation is not a one way street. If these nutters insist on pushing this rubbish, then time to insist that all non white cease wearing white cloths, driving white cars and using white technology. It works both ways, and they need to be outed and ridiculed.

      Never hear much about the way Gay’s have culturally appropriated the sacrament of marriage. Funny that.
