The stupidity of cultural appropriation


Staff member
Cultural appropriation is a new buzz progressives like to throw around. According to Wikipedia, the definition of cultural appropriation is the adoption of elements of one culture by members of another culture.

Modern cultures are the accumulation of previous cultures over the past 5,000+ years, maybe even the past 100,000 years. For example, when Rome expanded north Romans adopted the leggings worn by Germanic tribes. Today, we would call those leggings pants.

Our modern forms of republic and democracy are from Greece and Rome.

Tea came from China.

Black powder came from China.

Chickens were first domesticated around India almost 10,000 years ago.

Even our language is the accumulation of various languages spanning at least 2,000 - 3,000 years.

Cultural appropriation has been happening since the dawn of mankind. Yet it is just now a problem?
