Louis: As I said in my post, it is ridiculous and highly questionable when someone complains about cultural appropriation when they do it all of the time. Unfortunately, the people who scream it the loudest, as Ajah did, sparked my remark. It seems the ones who always jump at the chance to scream “cultural appropriation” are the ones who have been doing it forever and don’t realize it. As I also said, I think it is a compliment when someone copies something they like about another culture. And, for the record, I don’t take offense when Asians bleach their hair or wear colored contact lenses — because I never hear Asians complaining like blacks do about cultural appropriation.
