Do you culturally appropriate? What is cultural appropriation? Is it even possible to culturally appropriate? Should we not want to share the traditions and foods and musics and fashions of different cultures between each other? Is is a bad thing?

Cultural appropriation is like stealing the La Scala. I haven't got the equipment to manage that at this point.

Difference between cultural appropriation and multiculturalism is respect IMO.

cultural appropriation is for twats w/o respect of other culture, appreciation, but not done right.

Not to say I've not been guilty of it before...

Here's a far more interesting question: At what point does something, tangible or no, belong to all people and not just the people who created it?

That is a pretty good question, but probably not one the Pit can handle either sensibly or entertainingly.

White people have culture. They're just dorky, so nobody wants to partake in them.

Says the pommy sod
so drinking, riding kangaroos, AC/DC, V8s, football (Aussie rules football) and meat pies don't count as culture?

Well, the meat pies count as culture, in a microbial sense.

lol white people are the only people I know (in large numbers) who think white culture is inferior or non-existent. it needs to stop tbh 'cause it's indirectly degrading towards all culture (perfect example: 'ew that shit is so white can't be associated with that lemme pull a nero galon on everyone that'll me look less white and therefore 'cooler' yeah?').

If I wanted to have a debate about important social concepts with people who don't understand what they actually are, I'd stay on tumblr.

Edit: Does that mean ETR is appropriating tumblr culture?

White culture is not even a thing I mean French people, Polish people and English people are all "white" but all have completely different food, traditions, fashions and cultures.

Tumblrites are all white, so you can't appropriate culture from people who don't have it.

Kind of a moot occurrence, IMHO. Positive in some manifestations (our legal system is a form of "cultural appropriation") and ludicrous in others (Rachel Dolezal.)

Like "globalization" I don't assign a specific positive or negative connotation to the term.

this is true for everyone (normally I put these terms in quotes for that reason)

shit's subjective. even what you're saying is false 'cause a large percentage of English, French, and Polish people aren't white.

Now you're splitting hairs. Even I'm not this pedantic. There obviously isn't a culture specific to any one race, you just have to use the context to figure out to which culture people are referring. Think Asians: Filipinos, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Indian; Black: American, Caribbean, Ghana, South African, Kenyan; White: Spanish, American, England, Polish... etc.

had a #cockatoopost in progress but who's gonna read that shit? lol

I'll just say that I disagree. this thinking can have pretty negative effects related to nationalism but also just identity in general. basically all those examples you gave me I got images of all different kinds of people. I know I'm stupid but I don't care.
