    If I cannot wear dreads because it is part of African culture, maybe she shouldn't wear a shirt.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I agree. We need to go back to a time when the future of our country was when we could have dogs attack black people for trying to drink from our fountains! Make America Great Again!

    Turns out they're also part of ancient Greek, Hindu, Native American, and possibly Israelite.

    So much for cultural exclusivity.

    dumb, but not as dumb as appropriating General Tso's chicken.

    You may not have noticed it, but there was this line I was dancing on, you just jumped right over it.

    Is "chicken" some sort of Idaho code?

    For a couple of years in High School I sported the guinea fro. Not something I am proud of, but at some point you just give up with the blow dryer.

    "...when the majority culture attempts to strategically anti-essentialize itself by appropriating a minority culture, it must take great care to recognize the specific socio-historical circumstances and significance of these cultural forms so as not to perpetuate the already existing, majority vs. minority, unequal power relations." So there! (I wonder what that means)

    BTW, this may have been a drama students stunt.

    Beyonce' has white hair. I'm OK with it.
    But no more pastrami sandwiches for you guys. You just stick with ham and mayo.

    I've had it with the cultural appropriation of "Our Favorite Jew (no not Abe; the J-man)" by the U-know-who. And our book!
