Heya Oni...Long time no see again.

You know I don't argue with you very much.... EXCEPT on nitpicky little tiny minutae....

There's two kinds of cultural appropriation, and the type you speak of is fine. The big issue is when cultures are treated as fads or commodities to be traded.

In the latter, it's like gentrification, which is the wealthy trying to chase after the cool who are inspired by the poor that aspire to be wealthy....

Even that I don't think is intended so much as it is just offensive due to the packaging of a people wholesale and the fact that somehow it's incredibly racist (or sexist) and offensive.

Want an example of this sort of cultural appropriation? Weeaboo-ism.

Like someone brought up, you'll have people like Elizabeth Warren claiming to be Native American because her ancestor shagged one a millennia ago and she has less than half of percent of DNA from that encounter. Seems exploitable. Personally I find it gross if someone who claims to be something they are not for political gain. Definitely don't subscribe to the whole idea of trans-race.


So? It's extremely common for people in the United States to identify with ethnic groups they've traced their families back to from several generations. There are whole festivals held in the US dedicated solely to the practice of celebrating these heritages, and frequently by getting sloshed. Hell, people celebrate Cinco de Mayo without having any idea what it's actually supposed to be celebrating; it's just another excuse to get hammered for a lot of people.


Using it as an excuse to get drunk is better than exploiting it for political or financial gain but that's just me.

Looking at people comments some believe that a ONE everything involving our ethnicity and Culture is plausible?. But I don't believe so. I don't speak for all black people. never want to or will. They will only date a black female or male. But its not just blacks I have talked to whites they felt the same way and some people of different asian orientation. They're not racist, It's prejudice but not racism. I have to say this, just because you love the people of your race/culture soo much doesn't mean you hate or envy people of another race.Because whether you accept it or not people view the ones who think like that as racist. racism in my definition, when you actually hate people of another race/ culture. everything else to me falls along the line of stereotyping or being prejudice. So I say all that because their will be a nucleus of people in each generation. That will only mess with people in their culture/race depending on how we want to define the terms. Doesn't make them racist to me at all just pro whatever ethnicity. But to counter act my main statement if you get disgusted at looking for my instance a black and white couple then i'm a racist.

Yes but is the risk of losing what makes each ethnicity unique and beautiful worth a genetic homogeneous human race?


Novody cares and it won't affect us any.
Plus some of the most attractive people are of mixed decent. Granted though one of the races is usually Asian. Like Katrina Law.
I think of the reasons is the beautiful Asian features with the paler porcelain skin.
In fact my ex was asian and we always wondered if we had kids if they would resemble her or me more.
I myself am mixed thought you wouldn't know it to look at me. Infact everything about me hides half of my race.

I wasn't referring to mere looks mate. I was referring to the culture and traditions of each race.

People will take the culture and tradition of the area they are and how parents raise in despite race.
So it doens't matter. Plus your slight racism and pure blood speech is kind of creepy.
Mixing race won't matter only generation will.
If one parents want to teach their tradition to their kid despite being mixed or whatever they can and the tradition will continue.
But regardless if someone is full instead of mix they will usually lose their tradition and native language by 3rd generation.
Then again it happens early depending on the parents my ex gf esd full chinese her parents were born in China she was not she and her sister were first Generation knew nothing about her heritage didn't know any Chinese didn't even know how to pronounce Tao correctly.
Unless your worrying about people evolving in the goobacks from south Park then your fear is even dumber.

I am not entirely sure how to express to you how much effort it took to learn about my own culture , my own language but you just don't get regardless. My people are a distinct minority within North America despite the fact we are the native inhabitants of this continent. Cause for far too long we were treated as savages in need of enlightenment. And even now our wishes and desires are ignored. And far too many of our children are ignoring us and the wisdom of their elders. Content to chase the lies of the white man and his corrupted philosophy since it promises more than can be delivered.

You just don't get it mate.
