Hoop Earrings Are The Latest Victim Of Cultural Appropriation

It’s 2017 and hoop earrings are now apparently the latest victim of cultural appropriation.

That’s at least according to Rachel Hosie, a writer for The Independent who recently came out with the article, “Hoop Earrings Criticized As Cultural Appropriation.”

More than just a fashion trend, Hosie says hoop earrings “carry a lot more meaning, and one woman has now called out hoop earrings as a form of cultural appropriation.”

    Wait a second… I’m confused as to who is culturally appropriating who in this headline. Blacks, Romano Gypsies or White Trailer Trash? Oh! Mixed race Australians, wasn’t my first guess.

    Speaking of “racism” the new federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh has called out CBC Terry Milewski for “racism” (that didn’t take him long) for asking Jagmeet Singh views on the 1985 Air India terrorist attack committed by a Sikh radical. Jagmeet was repeatedly asked if he condemned the attack and repeatedly he REFUSED! Besides the fact that a CBC reporter was being called a racist which I find rather hilarious probably because Terry is a white male and the CBC are notorious Liberal Party supporters it is enjoyable watching the left eat it own.

    Jagmeet Singh has essentially declared himself to be pro Sikh terrorism. This is no different than a Canadian Muslim M.P. refusing to denounce the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York. Also by Jagmeet Singh quickly playing the race card he has clearly demonstrated that he is not capable of any leadership role since he can not articulate any proper argument that he would disagree with when presented to him. Jagmeet Singh is all about ethno religious politics designed to further fragment and destroy Canada. May the NDP and Liberals destroy each other!

      Yes, Singh sure danced around giving any direct answers to Milewski.

    ‘The piece “Hoop Earrings Are My Culture Not Your Trend” claims that only native Australians are allowed to wear gold hoop earrings’

    Aboriginals were a Stone Age people with no metallurgy whatsoever, let alone goldsmithing. Who comes up with this horseshit and how can anyone possibly take it seriously?

    • Clink9

      We need about half of planet Earth to self deport.

    • I have no idea.

  • Cat-astrophe

    Hear the one about Hoop earrings.
    It goes, how do you hold your liquor?

  • gaylord ponce

    If a guy wears hoop earrings, he’s either a pirate or a fag.

    • Slickfoot

      Johnny Depp is both.

    I have two questions for the left, and if they can not answer it satisfactorily then we should start deporting all our new replacement minorities.

    1. If we are not allowed to “Cultural Appropriate” the culture of these minority groups, then how exactly are we being “enriched” by having their “diversity” added to our culture?

    2. How come these minorities are allowed to come to this great culture that our people created and “Cultural Appropriate” our culture but there is no similar exchange allowed for us?

    If the left can not recognize this hypocrisy and racist policy of theirs, apologize and retract it, then clearly their only motive left with diversity is our colonization and the ethnic cleansing of white ethnic European people.

    • Lightstream

      You are absolutely right. As I said before, any minority using anything invented by whites is culturally appropriating and should stop at once.

        Do you really want to see naked people walking on Canadian streets ? 🙂

        • WalterBannon

          i want to see a lot of Muslims at the airport in the new muslim deportation line

          ditto any other minority that has some grievance against us, believes in white privilege, or just refuses to integrate into our culture when they come here

    I’m sure glad that Coleman Hawkins, Sidney Bechet, Benny Carter, Johnny Hodges, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and more culturally appropriated the saxophone, the invention of a Belgian. The world would be much the poorer if they hadn’t.

  • I will NEVER give up my hoop earrings, nor will I give up my Santa mitt earrings I wear at Christmas time.

    Saint Nick is cool with my appropriation.

  • I’ve been wearing hoops earrings for 57 years. No plans to stop. However, I demand that all black people start going around with bones in their nose.
