Cultural Appropriation is the idea that White Males have stolen various elements of minority and female culture and used them for their own benefit without acknowledging or appreciating the suffering of the offended party.
It’s everywhere, but the best example – so far – is a video shot at San Francisco State University, where a black student confronts a white student who is culturally appropriating African-American dreadlocks. Let’s watch, shall we?
Listen, I get it: I’m on her side.
As a Straight White Male, I see these feminists and students of color appropriating my White Male culture every day. When I think of them walking around in blue jeans, using electricity to light their dorm rooms, or to run their microwave ovens so they can eat non-Anglo-Saxon food… well, frankly, it makes me sick. They sit there using their smart phones to write about Social Injustice and then use the internet to post it on Facebook and Twitter, and as a white male I find this incredibly offensive.
Do these racists ever give a thought to fact that they are not dying in their twenties and thirties because of immunization, pasteurization, antiseptics and antibiotics? When they go to the hospital, do they think about the suffering and back-breaking work by White Males in order to bring them laser surgery, MRI scans, artificial ventilators and all the rest? Do they give an instant’s thought to why none of them developed polio, or scores of other infectious diseases? Nope. They just culturally appropriate these things and use them inauthentically.
But what really, really makes me lose my mind is when I look down the aisle of an airplane: Oh yeah, they’re reading articles about Beyonce, and they’re listening to Drake and Kanye West, but how many of these feminists and Social Justice Warriors of Color know the name of the man that invented the jet engine that is carrying them from their parents house to their hissy fits at the University of Ottawa, or Oberlin, or Yale, Harvard, Missouri and all the rest at 550 miles per hour? Not one of them, I’ll bet. Not one.
His name was Whittle, you ignorant, insensitive, racist pigs. I just want to get up and slap every one of them.
It’s a white thing. You wouldn’t understand.
And of all the things that Social Justice Warriors have culturally appropriated from White Men, the one thing I demand full recognition of is Rap.
As midsummer flower,
Gentle as falcon
Or hawk of the tower:
With solace and gladness,
Much mirth and no madness,
All good and no badness;
In every thing,
Far, far passing
That I can indite,
Or suffice to write
Hip-Hop rhyming is called Skeltonic verse, and it was invented by the man who wrote those lines: White Male John Skelton, who was born in England in 1463.
Now if all of this sounds petty, and ridiculous, and racist, and utterly barking mad to you… well, it sounds that way to me too. But that is who these progressive crybully tribalists are: insecure fascists who want to tell other people how to wear their hair.
They become apoplectic about things like the Washington Redskins, but they may want to take a lesson from another despised and marginalized group of American immigrants: the Irish. The two great slurs leveled against the immigrant Irish concerned their drunkenness and their violence. Here’s the mascot they chose for themselves – a drunken fighting Leprechaun -- and here’s the parade they have annually and here’s the green beer we all drink on St. Patrick’s day, and once a year everyone in America is Irish including this left wing, divisive, Alinskyite agitator [Obama]. That’s because unlike the Social Justice Weenies, the Irish have a sense of humor, which they no doubt culturally appropriated from our common African ancestors.
So Jesus, Mary and Joseph, why don’t you grow up, you whiny little crybabies?
