Evanescence? Too mainstream. Evanescence is for depressed preps. True Emos listen to Nightwish.

Nobody listens to Scandinavian bands anymore, and Finland was always the shittiest Scandinavium anyway. But Evanescence has gotten all old and shit, so it wrapped around and became cool again. When they stop being cool because too many people are listening to them, the next in line is Bjork.

Cannot say I think of "cultural appropriation" as a moral wrong, or an actual well defined phenomenom I should dislike. I think we should be able to learn from other cultures, and learning to cook others food is great for connections. That being said, I do frown on "stealing" and "taking credit", depending on the recipe and or product, but that mostly applies to things that are intended to be patented for profit or explicitly personal. If someone stole an invention or an idea without so much as credit, a citation, and especially in the absence of significant personal improvement, then I feel that such is a jerk move, regardless of the actual patent.

This is less a topic of racism in my view, and just being an inconsiderate dick. Really depends on the circumstances of the thing being "stolen".

Well you're not supposed to tell anybody. Unless it's like, Evergrey, or someone similarly weird. Nightwish? Really? You might as well say Arch Enemy or Candlemass. But at least it's not Opeth.

EDIT: Wow. Is it racist that literally every band I just named is Swedish? I mean, I could at the very least have mentioned Children of Bodom or Emperor.

The Fairy Tail soundtrack has a lot of songs that sound like European folk metal bands, the main theme even sounds like Hammerfall Something For The Ages. CULTURAL APPROPRIATION! We cannot stand for this assimilation of translucent people culture.

But Hammerfall just sounds like Iron Maiden anyway.

You know we poke fun at these horrible people for doing this, but the joke shines a light on something much more sinister. They'll never go after Japanese playing rock music or blacks using electricity. The reason why: in their eyes, it's not what's being done that's evil(appropriating) so much as the people doing it (whites). If you find someone complaining about white people 'appropriating' then you've found yourself a grade A, leukophobic bigot.

Liberals are butthurt that someone "culturally appropriated" some recipes from Mexico to start a business. They got enraged because someone brought recipes up to Portland from Mexico. Why would anyone care about this when it's been done for 2 centuries prior to this and most of what we eat are from other cultures. If anyone cares and wants to post than you better be "white" and not just "white" but Celtic "white" plus have a college degree or else you are appropriating my people's culture by using the internet.






Could all non-whites please stop using electricity (AC&DC, please), Western harmony, the scientific method, antibiotics, universities, blue jeans, the assembly line, and modern medicine. I'm tired of my culture being appropriated. :P



Could all English speakers please stop using Latin and Greek roots.

I know. See how stupid this is? Could all Greeks stop using their alphabet? It was appropriated from the Phoenician one.

exactly, everyone borrows. I prefer to call it sharing ideas rather than cultural appropriation. Especially when it comes to food, we get to share our cultures and deepen our bonds and understanding.

Indeed. We'd all be stuck in the stone age if we didn't do it. Anime was appopriated from the West, and I'm glad!
