In this modern age of digital globalization, mixed-race marriages, shared or co-written music, accusations of cultural appropriation has less validity and outrage.

It only has less validity to people who pick and choose black cultural tactics and then miraculously go back to their usual selves when things go awry. The same folks who love quoting hip-hop lyrics and copying black women’s bodies and mannerisms are quiet as s — t when the Trayvon Martins, Eric Garners and even Amber Guylers of the world happen.

Cultural appropriation never lost its validity, but people like yourself like to believe that so you can copy someone else’s culture instead of just respecting it.
