Cultural Appropriation

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby dealing with it on Fri Oct 06, 2017 3:19 pm

At what point is borrowing elements of another culture racist? Does there need to be the intention to cause harm? Does there need to be an unfair power relationship between the borrower and the borrowee?

Does it make sense to prevent all cultural exchange, or is cultural appropriation only referring to specific types of exchange? What happens when we say that an entire culture is off-limits? Is it ridiculous to have to ask permission from a group?

Tip jar: the author of this post has received 0.00 INK in return for their work.
