then why don't black people go back to wearing dashikis and grass skirts and loin cloths?
Why are they appropriating white culture? Jeans are from french dockworkers. Suits are Anglo.
When they give up their white cultural dress, then I will support their singular claims to dreads.
Dreadlocks originated seperately with the aztecs, greeks, celts, and holy men in india.
Blacks actually adopted the style from white sailors a few hundred years ago.
What is cultural appropriation and why is it bad? People talk about it like it's a bad thing.
I'm serious, I don't know.
is natural black hair
appropriating clown culture?
it is when you do not belong to a certain racial demographic, however add aspects of other cultures to your identity.
in this example, a white man is considering adopting the dreadlock as a hair style, which is traditionally a black hair style. Definitely not a consequence of not caring for hair, and letting it naturally tangle... something that happened for thousands of years in all early humans.
It is completely retarded, because everything these days is an amalgamation of almost everything else.
>blacks who straighten their hair
This shit triggers the fuck out of me when this is a distinctive racial feature of my people. I won't stand any longer for this. Fuck black people
daily reminder that a "bad hair day" for a black girl is when her straightened hair starts going nappy again
cultural appropriation they said...
But white isn't a race, it's a skin color. I speak in English, which is another country & culture's language. I'm ruled by government systems that come from Greece and various other countries. I use items designed by non-white non-Americans and built in China. If I am committing all this cultural appropriation, how is cultural appropriation bad?
Remember this shit?
She looked hot too
anti-racist hippies are racist because of cultural appropriation.
which actually explains why the lumberjack look is popular with hipsters. i guess it's not appropriation if you're stealing the style of white men.
Their argument would be "muh slavery, we deserve to appropriate your culture because we paid for it with muh servitude"
It's so fucking hilarious it's stupid. Think about it, the same people raging against people ostracising themselves due to having preference for race and promoting multiculturalism are now attacking people that are taking other cultures into their lifestyles.
WHAT DID YOU FUCKING THINK WOULD HAPPEN.
>dreads are racist
Dreads were worn by fucking cavemen. You know why? Because thats a natural way hair ends up when you never comb or wash it while letting it grow endlessly. All the filth and grime cakes the hair and it starts growing while turning in circles.
I have no idea why anyone wants to be a filthy fuck and emualte a subhuman.
>blacks telling other people not to appropriate black hair
>black women almost universally wear weaves made of East Indian women's hair
There's actually an answer to this, and it also involves white racism; it's the same reason black women don't wear their hair in big afros: there is pressure on them to conform to white beauty standards. A black chick in a grass skirt and huge fro would be sent home from work for looking "inappropriate."
K, that makes sense for America, but how do you explain it happening in fucking Africa?
Bullshit. No one is beating their door down to conform to white beauty. They conform to white beauty because its beautiful, and it gives their fat stank bald asses something to strive for.
Mfw theyll never attain it
>there is pressure on them to conform to white beauty standards.
Pressure by whom? "The Patriarcy"? "White society"? Some other unnameable God of Social Justice?
>A black chick in a grass skirt and huge fro would be sent home from work for looking "inappropriate."
If this black chick is working at such a place where a grass skirt and huge fro is not part of the company's work attire or uniform, then ANYONE wearing a grass skirt and huge fro would be sent home as well. That doesn't apply to just blacks or just women.
White people forced European beauty standards on them when they colonized Africa
Now you might begin to think that black people are weak since they've been so corrupted by white people but that's not the case
The reason why this is is because before white people got to Africa black people were completely peaceful and honest and good so they couldn't comprehend of people behaving any other way
This is how they were fooled by the wicked white man
If cultural appropriation is racism, then most liberals are racists.
black people getting JOBS is cultural appropriation, and therefore racism
>it's liberal retard speak for a race traitor.
no, it isn't.
why are you in a thread if you don't even know what cultural appropriation means.
It might be fucking stupid, but it means something -- and you don't know what it means.
Africa isn't colonized any more. White people were BTFO. So are you saying that the white devil has somehow corrupted Africa indefinitely? Africa is eternally the West's bitch?
>not dressing like apes
>having skyscrapers n sheeet
>actually receiving an education if you're not being buttfucked by islamization
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA nice b8 m8
Felicia definitely would most definitely benefit from a weave.
It's not an inherently bad thing, but it's a starting point for whining, and if you want to play victim, it's an easy place to start.
Daily reminder: Hamlet is set in Denmark. Shakespeare was English. Therefore: Cultural appropriation.
We can conclude that Hamlet is awful and damaging and should never be taught again.
All copies should be burned and deleted.
I'm sure some of them seriously think a white man eating Chinese takeout is racist.
I feel bad about people who take nigger opinion (of course that includes white liberal girl) seriously
these people don't ever have a chance to have a real job or real friends. Plus they go online probably as much as useless weebs and neets. They feel more lonely than anyone of us outside the Internet
And no our world isn't that bad yet... of course they say this online but if they ever bring this idea out in real life, people would treat them worse than who say they're nazis
the green of your text is oppressive, on so many levels
cultural appropriation is taking shit that is from a culture which isn't your own, and using it outside of that cultural context.
EXAMPLE: Canadian aboriginals "traditionally" hunting whales in motor boats (British culture) with sonar (British and American culture) and landing whales using winches (Greek culture).
Pretty fucking offensive, I'm sure you agree.
maybe so, and he if he'd tied it to a boat he could claim to have invented the motor boat.
...he doesn't look black, despite son nom de famille.
