Why Cultural Appropriation is Wrong

I might further dissect and integrate this bit of writing later, but I needed quickly to say that the author makes fantastic leaps between individuals celebrating interesting aspects of different cultures (through casual appropriation) and perpetuating oppression.

There is a deep, dark flaw in thinking that not only allows, but further advances these leaps in an attempt to shame individuals who have the audacity to embrace looks, behaviors, habits, or practices that a person has chosen for himself regardless of where he first encountered them.




Why Cultural Appropriation is Right

My take.
