    Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestWow What a great collection of essays Considering how short this book is, I am honestly so impressed by how thorough and detailed each of these essays are, and how each one of them stands alone and comes full circle by the end of the chapter By the time I finished and closed the cover, I felt like I had learned so much Cultural appropriation is one of those terms that tends to put people on the de

    Did the people who gave this book one star and are, unsurprisingly, white even read it They leave no reviews, which leads me to believe they didn t, or they know their opinions of the book are wrong So I m rating this book five stars to even things out until I actually get a chance to read it next month At that point I will update my rating and provide an appropriate review.

    Quick read and fascinating book Very insightful I recall this subject being discuss back in the 90 s And have always recognized white cultures stealing of music from the black community that s gone on for decades When I first learned of this back in the 70 s I was pretty appalled that none of the rock stars of the day, who admitted stealing, weren t giving reparations to those black artists Every culture borrows from other cultures, that s a given I

    Disappointing Boring Gossipy Unsubstantiated generalizations Lacking in insight No differentiation between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation No basis for steps to change I truly anticipated a book that would be substantive, that would define and differentiate truly painful experiences that we have endured I found the ever ongoing examples of life with Miley Cyrus sp and Christina and Paula Dean to be unendearing and gossipy One would be led to the impression that AL

    A quick, interesting and affirming read.I loved this look into the various entities that seek to extrapolate the blackness from black culture and liberate cough, whatever, cough the culture from blackness after stealing our shit I love that Dr Lauren Michele Jackson went into current reference points like the Kardashians and their culture vulture nature, as well as Rachel Dolezal and her self hatred reinvention and the historical ways that black culture has been stolen and reappropriated


  9. Miguette Miguette says:

    A short book that deals with the subject of cultural appropriation The author shows that the phrase cultural appropriation goes beyond natural cultural interchange and refers to the practice of profiting off of black intellectual labor, black artistic labor, black linguistic labor, black creativity etc She defends her points using examples familiar to anyone well versed in current popular culture She spends a lot of time on her examples and I don t think it makes a stronger argument, but that mig
