I really don't understand why you hate Caucasian people so much. I am a proud WOC, but I don't hate or despise Caucasians, or any race for that matter. I've seen racism, and you're doing is called racism. We're supposed to be against racism.
Honestly I rolled my eyes so hard reading this they almost popped out.
1) you have no idea what the word Caucasian means (hint it does not mean white people and using this word to describe white people dates back to racist history and science).
2) I don’t hate white people, neither do any of the other mods. I hate white supremacy.
Please endeavour to at least attempt to engage your brain before you send us anything again.
hi hello i just thought i would tell you you are wrong on so many levels. People can create tamales or try to make their own version of someone else's cultural food its not disrespectful in any way. Having side blogs dedicated to a culture or country isn't disrespectful either. If anything it shows ur love for the culture or country in question. And i know you are into french culture you even take the language SOOOOoooo you are being hypocritical in a sense and dumb. The end. ur unsmart
#josh I'm dead
is this real life
actually no im going to explain to you several things about how illogical your entire argument is
there is a difference between learning and appreciating cultural aspects and cultural appropriation
me learning french at school so I CAN GET INTO COLLEGE because learning a foreign language IS REQUIRED =/= me being into french culture or being “unsmart” as you so aptly put it
that “love” for the culture or country can be interpreted as taking facets of said culture and molding it to your own liking
modifying clothes specific to that culture to fit into what you want it to be without permission from anyone in that culture is CULTURAL APPROPRIATION not a cutesy love for a culture
modifying classic cultural specific foods into your own liking without permission from anyone in that culture is CULTURAL APPROPRIATION not a cutesy love for a culture
additionally, learning a language to communicate with others from another culture =/= culture appropriation you sad sack of shit
and im not even doing it for that im doing it so i can graduate because it’s a prerequisite
learning to communicate with others through their native language isn’t culture appropriation you shit faced gremlin it’s called being polite
Zadok Ben-David - Blackfield (2006-9) - Hand-painted steel and sand
“Blackfield is a space-specific floor installation containing steel etched flowers deriving from 19th-century Victorian encyclopedias. The work reflects over notions such as perception and perspective, and in its delicate modesty the installation brings up powerful questions regarding life and death.”
An investigation is underway at George C. Marshall High School, after a Fairfax County mom says her son was allegedly asked to speak “blacker” by a teacher during what the mother said was a lesson on stereotypes.
Nicole Page says it all started when an English teacher asked her son to read a Langston Hughes poem aloud.
Her ninth grade freshman son, Jordan Shumate, is the only African-American in the class. Page says when her son stopped and said he was uncomfortable with the dialogue, the teacher stepped in.
“She interrupted me after I finished the first stanza, and told me to read it ‘blacker,’” recounts Jordan. “She said, ‘Blacker, Jordan. Come on, I thought you were black.’”
And Page says this isn’t the first incident of the teacher’s cultural insensitivity, as reported by her son. She says there was a poem by Tupac Shakur that she wanted him to rap out.
For her part, Page says she is shocked: “Very sad, a mourning for my child’s loss of innocence that he would have to experience something like this.”
“The Marshall High School administrators are taking the accusations seriously and they are pursing the investigation vigorously,” says Jon Torre, spokesman for Fairfax County Public Schools.

THIS SHIT NEEDS TO STOP.
Update: Looks like the teacher, Marilyn Bart, was eventually placed on paid administrative leave while the school investigated. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find any info on what happened after that, though my search has not been super extensive.
Reminds me of my play director in 6th grade who implored me to read my lines “like a white man”. How terrible, my heart goes out to this child.
