Anonymous asked: i'm really just tired of a lot of non black woc/poc talking about solidarity and sisterhood and resistance, using black feminist thought and the history of black women as analogies, parallels and vehicles for their own struggles and movements...but then turning around and spewing some classist antiblack bullshit on the side..or thinking my solidarity as a black women with them gives them carte blanche to appropriate my culture or say nigga. i dont want that type of empty solidarity. keep it!
oh my fucking god the point of cultural appropriation isn’t really that “you can’t wear that bcuz u don’t understand the meaning of it!!!!” it’s that it’s sick and repulsive for you to wear something from a different culture without consequence when someone who actually is a part of that culture is treated with endless ridicule/discrimination/even violence for it
Just STFU already. You have white privilege and western/colonizer privilege so STOP interrogating the Arabs who own this place about what their food has or doesn’t have in it. If you really think your allergies are more important than the traditions of cultures that are clinging on to their survival then go eat somewhere else. You shouldn’t even be eating here in the first place.
