Questioning Cultural Appropriation

Questioning Cultural Appropriation

by Jonita Davis




We live in a country where you can eat Thai takeout while you lay warm under your Navajo-style blanket watching Bollywood musicals on Netflix. We are surrounded by other cultures that we have a duty to protect. Questioning Cultural Appropriation is all about defining that responsibility and giving you the tools to fulfill it. We must all learn to question this cultural crime before it whitewashes all of our differences away.
