fossoaposto asked: With all this gypsy stereotyping because of the new Sherlock Holmes movie, I'm wondering if "gypsy punk" music like Gogol Bordello counts as offensive. On the one hand, its incredibly kitschy, on the other, the band members are themselves descended from Romani.
aidehua asked: I've recently voiced my opinion against forcing people to reassociate the swastika with Hinduism rather than to Nazis, White Supremacy, hate, hate crimes, and prejudice against Jews, POC, GSM, etc. Some folks seem intent that I am helping white people oppress their religious culture because I am concerned that others might have triggers of trauma associated with the symbol. What words do you...
Anonymous asked: I'm a white person who wants to write/draw sci-fi comics set in the semi-distant future. (damn you can already tell I am a pretentious dipshit, sorry) Would it be appropriation to study the artistic/philosophical/political histories of a bunch of cultures, so that I could build a non-eurocentric setting with POC lead characters? Or should I get my head out of my ass and stop thinking I can...

My dad is like, a quarter Cherokee (or lying POS, either is completely possible) and is currently married to an Inuit woman - but I'm Danish as fuck and have no real...
Anonymous asked: A local bar hosts a weekly 'Reggae Night' for the University students and I constantly get shit for vocal distaste for it and refusal to go. I've also begun avoiding going in there in general. A friend of mine tried to argue that it wasn't cultural appropriation because the DJ is Black.
