they don’t make calendars like they used to
Fucking stop already. If it has nothing to do with rasta and rastafari or reggae do not tag it that. Its that simple white folks.
Let’s not forget the greatest example of cultural appropriation: a group of Jamaicans using the Imperial Abyssinian standard to represent their ‘religion’, which consists of nothing more than a bunch of lazy, drug-abusing mugs who claim to worship a CHRISTIAN emperor.
The Lion of Judah is an ancient symbol that once represented a proud people, now it’s the calling card of those whose greatest accomplishment in life is ‘smoking the ganja’, and that’s all its recognized for.
"Cultural Appropriation" at its f*cking finest.
if someone doesn’t have a “traditionally white/american” name, it’s not permission to nickname them “something easier to say.” this is a microaggression that shows just how little you care about that individual’s identity/culture and just makes you look like a giant privileged asshole. quit it.
So you’re telling me if someone has a name that’s incredibly difficult to pronounce, everyone should go out of their way to enunciate it so as to not look ‘privileged’?
The average Frenchman wouldn’t be able to pronounce a traditional Chinese name. Conversely, the average Chinese man wouldn’t be able to pronounce a traditional French name. Giving nicknames is convenient and makes sense; it has nothing to do with one’s feelings towards that particular culture.
I weep for the self-hating mess Western Civilization has become, I really do…….
