You read that correctly. Cultural Appropriation, or the theft of another culture by white people is a danger to our species. Let me explain. As a gender non-conforming disabled person of color, I have every right to explain how the world works without being told I’m “incorrect” aka without being oppressed.
Our species progresses through mating and multiplying like any other species. With the growing national disdain for cultural appropriation, less and less people will engage in the act of reproduction because no one will find each other attractive.
Think about it – so much of physical and visual attraction is heavily dependent on the other’s personal views, political opinions and cultural perspective. How can you be attracted to someone if they don’t support BLM? How can you want to reproduce with someone if they are white and haven’t checked their privilege at least once that week (and that’s being generous to them, a privilege itself that they don’t deserve but even us POC need to take the high road sometimes).
So let’s break it down. If you see a white girl with corn rows, that’s not OK. If you see a white girl with hoop earrings, that’s NOT OK. If you see a white man listening to rap music, that is NOT OK.
Culture is a melting pot and we should all get along but if white people don’t cooperate – and currently whites are the privileged majority – there will be less of us to procreate. Our species, yes, I mean POC and nonwhites, are under threat by cultural appropriation of white people. White people cannot, and will not, get away with raping our culture like they have done anyone not like them for the past hundred thousand years.
If you’re white, do your part and don’t steal from other cultures. Don’t wear corn rows, don’t dye your hair, don’t listen to Hispanic music, Black music, Asian music, and don’t wear anything that a POC deems inappropriate. Furthermore, since fashion and style changes frequently, white people need to keep up with the times and know what not to steal.
Fellow POC, don’t let your individual beautiful cultures be raped by white people any longer. If you see a white person who has not checked their privilege or is wearing something you find offensive – even mildly – do not engage with them. Actively ignore them. Only then will they learn how dangerous they are to the world.
