Sighs. More reasons to separate us keep appearing.

To me, the only think that matters (or, SHOULD matter) is if the “appropriation” is done to mock, or inadvertently mocks.

I don’t mind if you’re a Christian and you want to wear an Islamic headscarf like I do. I DO mind if you do it to mock my belief in modesty.

Methinks we are overanalyzing this entire thing. I get that it’s not “just hair”, but when we claim that a hairstyle is emblematic of centuries of racial struggle……..sorry, you lost me.
