Keep Hands off our culture

Postby Jered » Thu Aug 10, 2017 6:37 am

It's satire gold...without the satire.

When a Native American woman slammed a Black woman’s appropriation of her culture, Black Twitter users immediately took issue with the memo.

The back-and-forth began when a woman named Cheyanne tweeted a PSA Monday, Aug. 7 slamming a photo of rapper Omerettà The Great posing in a costume likened to Pocahontas.



The comments are either pure cancer or hilarious.

The link is not working, and I was looking forwards to this one too.

Well, if you're part Greek, the Romans already appropriated your culture. :ugeek:

If you're German (or English for that matter), odds are that you have some cousins in Italy .... :twisted:

Frankingun, DOUBLE plus ungood badthink as a matter of fact.
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
E.g.:
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .

Piffle - inferior cultures are meant to be rolled over with the good bits stolen and the bad bits mocked. That is how cultures improve.

Amen!

Every culture steals anything that they can file the serial numbers off of. If you aren't adding stuff (that you probably stole) then you're dying out.

Yeah well, to be fair, the Romans at least were kind enough to share with the Greeks some of the bounty of vowels stolen from their conquests. The Italians have so many vowels they just drop them everywhere, at the end of every name, added to words for effect where none need exist, yadda, yadda, mangia bene!

I maintain it's the shortage of vowels left by Roman conqueors that created the consonant rich regions to the north and in the Balkans. That has led to much unhappiness and unrest through the centuries. It's not tribalism that's the Balkan and Eastern European problem. At the root of it is vowel appropriation by the Italians and the resulting vowel/consonant inequity left throughout the Roman empire.

Stop Vowel Appropriation! Tear down a monument to a Roman Conqueror! Remove any signs of Roman occupation, fill in any archaeological sites in your cities from the Roman era.

You might be on to something. If it weren't called Trjfrkszjstan, it might not have become necessary to unleash Cookie Monster on it in the first place.

An interesting theory. I've tended to think that people oppressed by the Romans decided to abuse the Latin alphabet as a form of passive-aggressive revenge.
