I saw that thug kitchen thing, and I agreed with it!
But only because the creators hid that they were white for so long!
They knew the image they were creating was at odd with their actual heritage, so to me, that one rings true!
And meanwhile in Canada, this made the news yesterday…
Thug is, not unlike Yoga, an Indian term. which itself was appropriated by British colonialism, and subsequently by African-American culture. It seems weird to protect its appropriation by a later group, but to deny it to an earlier one.
Ah, but you see, here a little cultural appropriation from the Scots simplifies things immensely: tatties are tatties, neeps are neeps, it’s a dreich day in November, and the only drama that’s occurring is while hiding the body of the deej next door who decided to practise his pipes at the crack of dawn.
Only if/when people accept the BS instead of being critical of it. Some do, some don’t. People who rely upon BS are merely those who have failed to present a persuasive argument, so it would be folly to indulge them.
