Personally, I've never understood the buzz about bacon. All of a sudden its everywhere and everyone's claiming they love it more than life... tattoos, t-shirts, mugs, hats, bumper stickers... I mean, it's bacon. What's going on? Did I miss something? Probably... I usually do
SV - what's cultural appropriation?
a white teacher here who just got called racist for dressing up as Kanye West for Halloween. He's being forced to put out a public apology and will probably lose his job.
It's the absurd idea that integrating pieces of one culture into another is robing that culture of its identity and therefor wrong. It only works one way though - for example, a white person with dreadlocks is now considered racist, tantamount to black face. However, it's perfectly ok for black women to straighten their hair. There's a white teacher here who just got suspended for dressing up as Kanye West for Halloween. He's being forced to put out a public apology and will probably lose his job. However it's perfectly ok for a black child to dress up as Tony Stark... you know, that white guy from Iron Man. I'm not shitting you - people actually believe this stuff.
Did you this story? You'll love it.
