Attention Social Justice Warriors: Please Stop Writing! It's Cultural Appropriation!

By Rick Pearcey • April 20, 2017, 11:20 AM

David Hogberg writes at American Spectator:

Last week model Shanina Shaik was accused of cultural appropriation when she braided her hair for the annual music and arts festival in Coachella, California.

I didn't realize how serious this was until I read Jessica Andrews's piece at Teen Vogue where she claims the Coachella festival "is mired in cultural appropriation" because of the white people there who dress up in "[b]indis, feathered headpieces, dashikis, [and] war paint."

Upon further research, I discovered writer Adrienne Keene who suggests that dressing in Native American gear is cultural appropriation unless you buy it from a Native American.

And, to my horror, I learned that white male chefs making money by cooking ethnic food is also a form of cultural appropriation, according to Michael W. Twitty.

"Well, these writers have enlightened me," Hogberg admits. "I'm now very concerned about this injustice. So concerned, in fact, that I implore Jessica Andrews, Adrienne Keene, and Michael W. Twitty to stop writing. After all, writing is also cultural appropriation."

Culturally appropriate more here.
