She insisted that she shouldn't.

I explicitly gave her my permission; a Rap Pass, if you will.

She wouldn't take it.

White girl literally arguing with me that she SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO BE INTO RAP, jfc

How many levels of wokeness are we on.

Had the exact same conversation with another white girl about dreadlocks.
Idk liking rap is only a hop skip and a jump away from rapping oneself, and no white hip hop is listenable

I watched a mini debate show on cultural appropriation the other day, and my take away was to just step back and think about if your personal expression is doing harm or not. It probably isn't, but if it is than you need to have some fucking empathy and be willing to learn why.

Pretty much, yeah.

But stupid culture-war shit means the loudest camps are the ones who scream "CULTURAL APPROPRIATION ISN'T A THING, PC CULTURE IS TAKING OVER THE WORLD AND THREATENING FREE SPEECH AND SOON WE WILL ALL BE IN FEMA CAMPS, also HOW DARE YOU CRITICIZE ME FOR SQUINTING MY EYES AND PRETENDING TO BE CHINESE, I'M BEING FUNNY" and the ones who scream "omg like can white people just STOP drinking tea, doing so is literally oppression of people of East-Asian descent, I shouldn't have to explain my opinion, asking me to do so is LITERALLY whitesplaining, kthnxbye."

cultural appropriation is kinda fucked when the culture that's getting appropriated was formed in response to the oppression of the appropriator

there's a lot of good opportunity for cultures to meld and people to learn from each other and create something new, and more raw and human. people have been trading goods and knowledge since the dawn of time, very few cultures were ever totally isolated. most cultures realize that. but there are deep historical implications that are unique to certain forms of culture-sharing that may cause pain to people, and that's when you need to place your personal freedom of expression behind your obligation to show respect to others, especially if you truly admire the culture you're inspired by. imho.

Well, I've now had the dubious honor of being on a Missing Persons list after some questionable driving decisions on the part of one that shall remain unnamed left us stranded in a literal desert with no signal, no supplies and forty kilometres between us and the nearest town.

Turns out, the police response to a missing foreigner is an overwhelming one. They even brought humitas for maximum authenticity, forcing my vacant digestive system to condone cultural appropriation for survival's sake.

This is where they would have built my memorial. On a dirt road that had been closed three weeks prior to "our" failed attempt at utilizing it in a front-wheel-drive SUV typically reserved for driving kids to school.

tbh I'd be pretty excited if I found a nice spot that served decent Mexican food, too.

Yes, Some Eat Mexican.

Other cultures don't get excited for American cuisine because it's terrible (unlike all white hip-hop).

I mean, do Italians get offended if you talk about how much you like the new pizza joint down the street?

This could go on forever.

bull-fucking-shit it's terrible. American food can be great. I remember the first time I ate biscuits and gravy (I hope that's American cuisine). Blew my fatherfucking mind!

Also dreadlocks are universally awful. Haven't we come around to agree on that?

Maybe one might if it were an authentic Italian restaurant and the white patron, after done eating, proceeded to speak as if he were Christopher Columbus. Plus the white patron says stuff like : Idk liking rap is only a hop skip and a jump away from rapping oneself, and no white hip hop is listenable

dude is 2 seconds away from saying "black people music"

And White people always call authentic tacos 'street tacos' as a way to note for everyone they didn't buy it at Chipotle or Taco Bell, but that's the shit they should be calling "street tacos" cause that's where it belongs.
