This cultural appropriation crap is ... crap!

http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-43947959

So when a Chinese person wears a western suit, is that not CA?

When a black woman sings opera, is that not CA?

When a black musician plays rock music....?

When Tiger plays golf???

So all black people can do is wear dashikis, play basketball and sing r&B?

Foolishness: ALL CULTURE INVOLVES SOME FORM OF "APPROPRIATION"!!!

You have to understand, Hist, it is only cultural appropriation when an American kid wears a Chinese prom dress.  When a Chinese girl wears a pair of Levis, it is cultural imperialism.

Glad I could clear that up.

I do confirm to these so-called norms. I do anything that ah wanna do. I also get the feeling around some of my friends that the Whiteman is the enemy and also the Chinese are taking over.(another story for another day) I was invited to the Wine festival and when ah said ah was going, my friends look at me very differently.  I say FORK them ah doing what ah wanna do.  Ah mingling with all the races, and  I ent confirming to anything.

Yeah, I wouldn't waste the calories on any of those crappy beers but I found no prom dress in packaging of my prefered microbrewery pilsner. :-)

For years Sam Adams was the only decent brew in the States, then all of a sudden everyone's going microbrew crazy. Better late than.

I live in the center of Czech immigration in the US.  We have had pretty good local brewers for some time, pilsners especially. At least since the 1980s.  I have never been a fan of American mass production beer.  I only have a couple of beers a week.  When I do, I want it to be good.
