Response to True Blue Door (Original post)

16. Interesting topic

I read a bit about it to gain a general understanding of what cultural appropriation is. I had never heard the term before. Personally I have become very interested in learning about different cultures since I moved to South Korea almost 12 years ago. Dissertation for my doctoral degree was on how foreign consumers interact with small- and medium-sized businesses here in Korea, so it briefly touched on culture.

After the reading the strongest example I think I can come up with is the Washington (that NFL team) using a Native-American name. That has been a rather contentious issue the last few years. It seems like Synder is not going to change the name no matter how much pressure is put on him. Interestingly, most of the press has stopped using the term (the one I won't say) as sort of an informal boycott.
