    Love & Hip Hop season 3 trailer!

    No caption needed. Watch!

    WARNING: THIS IS ONLY ON THIS BLOG AS A WARNING TO STEER CLEAR OF THIS SHIT. THE FACT IT EXISTS NEEDS TO BE RECORDED IN TIME. ONE DAY I HOPE WE CAN LOOK BACK AND SAY, “LOOK HOW WE HAVE OVERCOME!!”

    Ya’ll need to get this ignorant shit off TV. Don’t watch this. Don’t fucking support this raggedy shit. This is poison. Everyone here needs a good life coach, to drink some fucking water, and learn to love themselves — read a book. This is NOT hip-hop culture. THIS FILTH, is how commercial rap artists disconnected from the hip-hop culture live like the dead.

    I’ll never get that time back. I’m gonna go meditate and read a book. I’m gonna go study and write a poem.

    I just want so much more for you. I just really, really do. Please understand your children are watching, your daughters are looking for role models. Your sons want to connect to the world out there. Do not show them only these roads. Do not tell them that these are shoes their feet must fill. All the good in you, deserves so much more than this. Please, just — let’s find something else. Just ask me, I can find something to help you fill the time. Just please, not this.

    "A Sticky Situation" (1960) by Carl Barks

    I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.

    What separates cultural appropriation from cultural appreciation?

    Entitlement.

    Appreciating, admiring and learning about other cultures is great, thinking that the appreciation and knowledge you have about the culture entitles you to…

    They definitely can! For example, a mestizo Mexican person can appropriate from an indigenous Mexican group that they are not a part of, KPop stars have been getting called out for appropriating black culture, black people are getting called out for appropriating the warbonnet. 

    Nothing, I repeat, NOTHING entitles anyone to the practices and traditions of marginalized and oppressed cultures, or other culture period. If you are invited to participate by people in the culture, by all means say yes, just realize that it doesn’t give you the right to go and practice the tradition however you want.

    Also note that this doesn’t apply to popular media (TV, movies, literature, music, etc) or food, as long as it doesn’t go into weaboo/fetishistic territory and you’re not talking about ritualized food. 

    I get it. Practicing traditions from marginalized cultures is further removing the significance of said cultures. Like white washing. Practicing these traditions trivially further marginalizes them. It’s like forcing them into oblivion. 

    Exactly! It’s actually a very effective tool used in genocide, either during the dehumanization stage or the denial stage. The way it has been used against the indigenous peoples of the Americas, particularly N. America, is a very good example of this. 

    Thanks. I appreciate this non hostile conversation lol.

  14. baronamato said: when the appreciator begins to claim the culture as one of their own invention, then they become appropriators

    So is ok for people to practice traditions from cultures they weren’t necessarily born into? As long as they don’t claim to have invented it?

     

  15. Serious question:

    Entitlement.

    Appreciating, admiring and learning about other cultures is great, thinking that the appreciation and knowledge you have about the culture entitles you to practice their traditions is not ok. 

    So, can POC be cultural appropriators? And further more, is there a point where an individual has learned enough about a culture and can practice their traditions without persecution? Or is that out of the question?
