“Cultural appropriation!” Cried the cultural appropriator! 

Just as liberal African-Americans are seemingly immune from being racists, it is only the African-American culture that can be appropriated apparently.

Remember…, conservative African-Americans aren’t welcome in the liberal or “liberal Black” club though.

First, let’s see what cultural appropriation is defined as.

Cultural appropriation, at times also phrased cultural misappropriation, “is the adoption of elements of one culture by members of another culture.”

Your first impression might be, “so what?” or “that’s nice.”

I mean, haven’t we heard it said that, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?”

Well, I guess we need to add a caveat to that saying now, which would be, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, unless you’re a liberal or a liberal African-American.”

Here are some samples of liberal headlines addressing this “terrible” hijacking of the Black culture:

What is cultural appropriation and why is it offensive? – “The Week” website from the United Kingdom.

Why Cultural Appropriation Is Wrong – The “ThoughtCo” website.

Why cultural appropriation isn’t cool – reachout.com website.

… and,

A Point of View: Understanding the Harmful Impact of Cultural Appropriation – by Luiza Dreasher on the “Inclusion Solution” website who asks, “When Non-Black Minorities Adopt Black Style, Is It Still Appropriation?” …and answers, “The answer is simple: Absolutely.”

Bianca Lambert for the HuffPost (Huffington Post) website says, “We’ve seen a wealth of celebrities including Miley Cyrus and the Kardashians appropriating Black culture, plus countless fashion designers sending white models down their runways wearing ‘locs,’ braids and baby hairs. But what happens when we start to talk about Black appropriation among other minority communities?”

“Anyone can appropriate Black culture, including non-Black minorities, according to Keisha Brown, an associate professor of history at Tennessee State University.”

You know…, in America, Ms. Lambert and Ms. Brown, if you don’t patent something or copyright something you don’t own whatever that is and you don’t have the right to tell anyone else they can’t use it or copy it.

Just sayin’.

‘“So many facets of Black culture, both historically and contemporaneously, have become synonymous with mainstream American culture,’ Brown told HuffPost. ‘A related issue at hand is the separation of Black culture from the peoples and history that created it. People embrace the hip or popular elements of Black culture, but not Black Americans.’”

I guess it depends on what you consider “mainstream” American culture now doesn’t it, Ms. Brown?  And that’s a two-way street by the way.

“It’s all too common for designers to walk white models down the runway in cornrows.”

How dare they?!

If you want to start crying about “cultural appropriation…,” then let’s cry about ALL “cultural appropriation.”

You hardly see any Black actresses or singers with “natural” hair anymore.

Let’s take a look at their cultural appropriation of “white girl’s hair.”

‘“Cultural appropriation is an issue because of the history of systematic destruction and exploitation of Black culture,’ Day said [Lindsey Day, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of CRWN Magazine]. ‘America turned free people into “niggers,” and to everyone’s surprise, we created new forms of beautiful expression out of that pain. Those cultural expressions have become America’s greatest cultural exports and engines to build white wealth.’”

Didn’t anyone ever let you know that “life ain’t fair?”

Well, just so you know, it isn’t.

“Nicole C. Jackson, a psychotherapist who specializes in cultural and systemic oppression among emerging adults, works with many young African-American women who struggle with embracing their beauty and identity.”

‘“We often find ourselves in the role of educating everyone, from our children’s teachers, doctors and co-workers about what it means to be us,’ Jackson said. ‘While our voices are essential to the conversation, it is not our responsibility alone to educate others about their injustice and appropriation.’”

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all feel that you are the only ones who experience injustice?

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all feel that you are the only ones who experience cultural appropriation?

acapp 17

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all feel that you are the only ones worthy of any consideration?

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all are some of the ones keeping racism and culturalism alive and well in our society?

Just sayin’.

“I’m a racist, he’s a racist, she’s a racist, we’re a racist, wouldn’t you like to be a racist too?!

According to Dom Calicchio of Fox News, “Trump policies, racism, may cause some black women’s weight problems, a Rutgers professor says.”

“Brittney Cooper a Rutgers University professor believes President Trump’s policies and racism is causing black women’s weight problems.”

blacks 13

Okay…, all of these racism claims and Trump blaming are getting pretty ridiculous now!

blacks 2

Are President Trump’s racist policies causing me to stuff my face in order to make myself feel better?

“That’s the sort of question some black women may be asking themselves, a Rutgers University professor suggested during a recent appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Network.”

“Although, more accurately, the problem may be the stress and anxiety caused by the policies rather than the policies themselves, Brittney Cooper, who teaches gender studies at the New Jersey-based university, said on a recent episode of ‘Black Women OWN the Conversation.’”

It’s not the policies, stupid…, it’s the policies!

President Trump has not even been in office for three years.

I would be willing to bet that almost all of these women haven’t changed much since the “glorious” Obama years.

Just sayin’.

“Research shows black women lose weight more slowly than white women, and the Trump presidency may be exacerbating the situation, Cooper said on the program, according to CampusReform.org.”

This just keeps getting “stupider” by the minute!

‘“We are living in the Trump era,’ she said, ‘and look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.’”

What?!

Excuse me?

President Trump’s policies are “killing your people?!”

Actually, millions of minorities have been lifted out of poverty.

Millions of minorities have been lifted off of food stamps.

Millions of minorities are finding jobs and getting better jobs and higher pay.

People have at least the same access to health care and insurance as they did under Barack Obama, and even better in most cases.

President Trump has implemented many new policies aimed at improving the economic situations of our inner-cities.

If you were being honest, you would have to say that minorities are definitely winning with President Trump.

According to the GOP website:

“President Trump has fostered a roaring economy for all Americans, driving down unemployment rates for minority groups, with African American, Asian, and Hispanic unemployment hitting record lows in recent months.”

“Under President Obama, African American unemployment was on average 5.2 percent higher than the general population, and Hispanic unemployment averaged 1.9 percent higher.”

“Under President Trump, not only has minority unemployment plummeted, but the unemployment gap has narrowed to 3 percent for African Americans, and 0.8 percent for Hispanics.”

The “Opportunity Zones” incentive is a new community investment tool, established by President Trump, in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide. Opportunity Zones provide a tax incentive for investors to re-invest their unrealized capital gains into dedicated “Opportunity Funds.”

“President Trump has focused on providing jobs training programs that help Americans who can’t afford a college education earn money while they learn.”

“In an effort to promote the growth of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), President Trump has increased funding for various HBCU programs.”

“Under President Trump, technical education and vocational studies, programs that are heavily utilized by minorities, have received $1.2 billion in funding.”

“Under President Trump, Obamacare’s harmful and costly individual mandate has been repealed and access to Short-Term Limited-Duration plans has been expanded in order to provide more affordable healthcare plans to the American people.”

“Premiums for these plans can be up to 80 percent lower than Obamacare healthcare plans.”

“President Trump has been an avid advocate of prison reform, supporting The First Step Act, sentencing reforms, and hosting a Prison Reform Summit where he sought input from over 100 activists, experts and policymakers. President Trump plans to address the partisan divide in Congress on improving prison conditions and better-preparing prisoners for re-entry into society.”

“The First Step Act, which would place federal prisoners closer to home, allow more home confinement for lower-level offenders, and expand prison employment programs, has also been signed into law.

And these are just a few of the horrible injustices and terribly racist policies, championed by President Trump, that should keep African-American women up at night and stuffing their faces!

‘“I hate when people talk about black women being obese,’ Cooper continued. ‘I hate it because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create.’”

We feel for you and your sisters Ms. Cooper.  I’ve heard reports that the day after President Trump’s inauguration day, hordes of republican staffers invaded our inner-cities, literally stuffing food down the throats of African-American women.

Damn those whiteys for building all of those KFC’s, Pizza Huts, Popeye’s, McDonald’s and Taco Bells!

“She added: ‘It’s literally that the racism that you’re experiencing and the struggle to make ends meet actually means the diet don’t work for you the same.’”

I’ve heard it said that we create our own hell.

“We create our own hell, it is the sum of all our decisions – we are not sentenced, we condemn ourselves.” ― Gabrielle Estres

If we choose to see everything through a pair of racist glasses, that is exactly what we are going to see.

“In a separate interview, Cooper told CampusReform.org she was citing 1990s information from Dr. Arline Geronimus, a public health research professor at the University of Michigan.”

“Geronimus ‘argues pretty convincingly that black women have physiological stress responses to racial stimuli and this affects our long-term health,’ Cooper said.”

I don’t think many people would argue that stress in general can have a definite affect our health.

“I was citing this body of work and the president’s status as a racially polarizing figure that contributes to issues of racial stress for people of color.”

I would contend it is the sum of our democrat “friends” and the liberal propaganda main stream media who are fraudulently creating racial stress in our country at President Trump’s expense.

Ask a liberal to find a direct quote of President Trump’s or a real example of one of his policies that can be identified as being racist.

They won’t be able to do it…, because there aren’t any!

They have been told, and are continually being told there are, and they are taking these libelous accusations as the truth…, which they are not.
