I guess this should not be a shock…but it’s the first time I’ve heard anything about this specific double standard…so…
If what this lovely young lady claims is true…then nobody who isn’t part of the biological [what about ideological, or social class?] majority, can culturally appropriate from that majority culture…
…It seems, those incidents are not appropriation…because those people have been unintentionally [or unwillingly] pulled along in the social trends of the majority.
…In other words…if somebody else unilaterally decides that you are part of the biological [aka racial] majority…then other people of minorities can copy your features…but, you cannot copy theirs?
…Oh, wait…It’s not allowed between the minorities, either?
I have a few questions…
…On what authority, does anyone presume a right to separate humans into classes?…and this is especially egregious, when people who don’t even know each other, try to assign subjective levels of “privilege” to one another.
I’ve been watching these kinds of filmed exchanges, for a while…
…And I’ve seen the individuals who point a finger at others…make a sudden judgment, based upon the shallowest of observation [IE: “You’re complexion is so white!”]…just to dictate that their target “has no right”…to be there…to have a voice…to wear a style of clothing…to have a hair style…
…A lot of it is just straight up goofy, and hard to wrap your mind around…Because so many of these things being outraged over, don’t even make any sense.
Who cares, if a non-black wears dreadlocks?…In reality, there is no harm in this…and dreadlocks are associated with at least a few, non-black, ancient cultures…Nobody owns dreadlocks.
…And what about whites, or Asians, or whomever is non-black, who grows up and lives in a predominantly black area?…Are they exempt, because they are part of a minority in the life they live?
…How do you even start to draw up plans…for all of this micro-segregation?
…And what possible good is it even doing, to carry on with this type of plan?
What is the objective social good in it?
…And what is this mysterious harm being done, when cultures meld together in these ways?
As a rule…it is a good sign that people who live together in a community, adopt common practices…It’s a form of acceptance…
…It means “we are all human”…and we like to take part in the things of our larger community.
Are they suggesting [or inferring] that groups of different biological makeup, cannot become a singular community?
This whole mess looks like a bunch of problems being imposed, on situations where problems don’t even naturally exist.
…That sort of behavior, is not what we need in this world.
