You can stick your ” Cultural appropriation” where the sun don’t shine

If you didn’t already know, “cultural appropriation” is one of the latest politically correct SJB buzz words to describe a European using something that was invented/created by a non-European culture. Basically, it is yet another way to criticise White people because if they use or wear something from a non-European culture they are told that they can’t because it is ” cultural appropriation” and it is raaaaasist.

Non-Europeans using European inventions, clothing, education systems, laws etc get a free pass because they are minorities and it is always okay when a minority does it.

White women are no longer allowed to wear hoop earrings, according to a group of Latina students at Pitzer College in Southern California…

…Alegria Martinez, a member of the Latinx Student Union, subsequently sent an email threat to the entire student body that read:

The art was created by myself and a few other WOC after being tired and annoyed with the reocurring [sic] theme of white women appropriating styles? that belong to the black and brown folks who created the culture.

The culture actually comes from a historical background oppression and exclusion. The black and brown bodies who typically wear hooped earrings (and other accessories like winged eyeliner, gold name plate necklaces, etc) are typically viewed as ghetto, and are not taken seriously by others in their daily lives.

Because of this, I see our winged eyeliner, lined lips, and big hoop earrings serving as symbols [and] as an everyday act of resistance especially here at the Claremont Colleges.

Meanwhile, we wonder, why should white girls be able to take part in this culture (wearing hoop earrings just being one cause of it) and be seen as cute/aesthetic/ethnic. White people have actually exploited the culture and made it into fashion.

This European woman wearing hoop earings is an example of cultural appropriation and racism according to some Latina student activists
