Yeah my hope with this thread is that someone would argue the opposite. No such luck.

cultural appropriation is a real issue but white people embracing rap or hip hop is not cultural appropriation. if you think that it is, you are basically advocating segregation because hip hop has been a uniting power in american pop culture.

In what ways is it an issue? I'm genuinely curious because as you mentioned with hip hop, it seems this whole concept encourages segregation.

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo by drinking tequila and eating taco bowls is okay.

Believing this means you have an appreciation for hispanic culture is not okay.

^I read about this last night. It's funny how people in China had no problem with it, but a bunch of Americans did.

I've been to China on several occasions and they have no issue with custom making Chinese dresses to order for people of all nationalities. It's no surprise that people in China don't care.

So, I saw some post about not wearing sombreros and whatnot.. But I am currently wearing a tiny one. OK or not?

A tiny sombrero defeats the purpose of a sombrero, so yes it's offensive. Wear a real one.

So I wear some of my Benin clothes in the states from time to time, and 99% of the reaction is positive, but occasionally someone will call "cultural appropriation." Never mind that wax print fabrics originated in Indonesia and were brought to Africa by the Dutch. I guess the first couple of appropriations were fine but I was just one step over the line.

Through a series of terrible life choices after college, I ended up in a situation where 98% of the people I know are overeducated coastal liberal elites intent on showing how "woke" they are at all times. Two weeks from today I'm marrying a Californian graduate of Berkeley, and she was worried about having African wax prints at the wedding for this very reason.

Since I've lost every other wedding related dispute, I dug in my heels on this one. Goddammit, we met in Benin, we are going to have funky African cloth at our fucking wedding.

Ok what does fall under cultural appropriation.

Also on the dress thing, of course the Chineese don’t care if you copy them have you seen their economy it’s based on making cheaper knockoffs of everything.

Yeah that whole "controversy" was overblown. He basically said stop saying the N word, she said ok, and then got to continue.
