Cultural appropriation are two words the Woke Army throw around when they haven’t anything else to say. The phrase doesn’t mean anything, but you know…wokeness (see Liberals Attack JK Rowling Over…CULTURAL APPROPRIATION and Justin Timberlake Tweets, Gets Blasted for Cultural Appropriation). So when Black Lives Matter glamour shot model Deray sat down to interview Katy Perry, she just had to get something off her chest.
Ok, that was excessive. Let’s just roll the video…
“I’ve made several mistakes, even in the “This is How We Do video,” about how I wore my hair, and having a hard conversation with one of my empowered angels, Cleo, about ‘What does it mean?’, ‘Why can’t I wear my hair that way?'” explained Perry.
“And, I listened and I heard and I didn’t know, and I won’t ever understand some of those things because of who I am. I will never understand, but I can educate myself and that’s what I’m trying to do along the way.”
“I didn’t know that I did it wrong until I heard people saying that I did it wrong.”
Side note, is Deray the new black guy whose ring “guilty” white people have to kiss to make sure leftists still like them? Has Al Sharpton ceded the throne or was it taken from him? And seriously bro, those socks? What culture was appropriated in the creating and wearing of those socks? Besides banished Oompa Loompas. You know Wonka dropped the hammer on someone after a fat German boy flopped in his chocolate river.
Sorry, digression. That’s what happens when one starts writing about cultural appropriation gobbledegook. One starts thinking of chocolate rivers. Not to be confused with Chocolate Rain.
Correct me if I’m wrong here, but wasn’t there a time when it was problematic for NOT embracing black culture? As in if someone wanted to just stick with their own “culture” they’d be considered racists. This was pre-liberalism infecting all aspects of modern life like a sexually transmitted disease. Back in the olden days, we used to just call “appropriation” as “being influenced by artists who came before you.” See also “inspired.” Now, you can be influenced, but only to an extent. And only by people of your own race.
As much as I love seeing Katy Perry dressed as a young Hillary Clinton on Saint Paddy’s day apologizing for certain hair styles, I think she pushed the stupid envelope too far. No one, not even brainless girl-kiss crooning dumplings, should ever prostrate themselves before someone else for “appropriating racial culture” or whatever it is. Especially if that someone else appropriated their sock style from chocolate factory dwelling dwarves.
Though Perry should apologize for letting so much naive dumbassery out of her quack cannon.
