Please be respectful to each other in the comments. This is my opinion and I continue to expand it with your help & knowledge. I’d love to know your thoughts too!
Check out AfricanBarbie’s Opinion:
Cultural appropriation has become a HUGE topic recently and we finally have a word to explain that uncomfortable feeling we get when a pale white girl dons a Native American headdress at Coachella, or the “hippie” white dude with the dreads completes his ‘Marley’ look with a dashiki. It’s so important for people of color to say what is NOT OKAY for people to take from their culture and to highlight the differences between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation. Within the African Diaspora, this is an especially sensitive topic. African-Americans like myself have decided to SANKOFA ‘reach back and grab it’, beginning to celebrate a past that was stolen by slavery.
However some ‘native’ West Africans don’t like this and have accused African-Americans of cultural appropriation.
