2. Bull. Black culture BELONGS to black people. Period. Full stop.

 

White folks do not own black culture and do not get to make decisions among themselves over whether it's okay for them to appropriate our culture without us talking About it, pointing it out, rejecting it, and ridiculing them when they think they can just come in and decide that they somehow own a piece of us in some way.

If you take anytime to understand other culture you would not be so arrogant ad to think you can just intellectualize and make decisions about something that is not your to decide on.

What is really really racist is when people talk over black folks, steal their culture and then call them the racist for complaining about appropriation. It is the epitome of white priviledged thinking and it is ass backwards. Do you own a piece of Eskimo culture too? Nigerian? Arab? Chinese? No, you don't. It is not yours.
