This video gives an in-depth look at the qualms that arise from cultural appropriation and the hurtful effect it can have on minorities.

     

I don’t have an issue with different races wearing Black styles and utilizing parts of Black culture. I just hate it when a White American takes on certain elements of our culture; they are not shunned the way we are. We are labeled and stereotyped when they are praised. Love and praise your own culture. Even if no one else will.
