    No one has yet explored whether non white, non Europeans can be accused of cultural appropriation for writing about white folks. It is time.

    Funny as the Rowling “Appropriation” story is, you missed the more interesting story just below it: http://dailycallernewsfoundation.org/2016/03/10/shocker-after-caving-to-protests-mizzou-has-huge-budget-gap/

    Seems Mizzou is gonna have a 1500 student shortfall in Freshmen come September 2017 due to an unexpected sharp decline in first-year enrollments and student retention this coming fall.

    If the shortfall was truly unexpected, then Mizzou’s ENTIRE administration should be ash-canned immediately.

    Its all incredibly stupid and exactly the opposite of the melting pot society we are suppose to champion. JK Rowling should unapologetically tell these people to STFU and write their own damn stories under their own false guidelines of culture silos.

    Dude –

    “Cultural Appropriation” is just another made up “progressive” phrase and false cause. There is no such thing. Was Rock & Roll a “cultural appropriation” of rhythm and blues? It influenced it, but why is that a bad thing? IT ISN’T!! And isn’t that what “progressive” dogma is all about? The sharing and blending of cultures? That is what they will tell you, BUT IT’S A LIE!!

    Their “strategy” is based on divisive, identity politics, going totally against the “we are all the same” bullshit they also espouse. The underlying tactics they deploy go totally AGAINST the dogma they pretend to believe.

    If some college kids throw a Cinco De Maya party they get called racist. If they ignored and didn’t celebrate Cinco De Maya they are called racist. WTF? And “progressives don’t get the backlash against political correctness? They are intentionally blurring the lines between right and wrong, so they can just make this shit up as they go along.

    “Social Justice Warriors” is really just “progressive” politically correct terminology to INCORRECTLY describe, and thereby disguise what is really going on. The correct, accurate description for these folks would be “Street Justice Warriors”, where law does not apply. See Freddie Gray, for just one example. Black Lies Matter IS NOT a social justice group. It’s a terrorist organization that feels the Constitution, and thereby the law, does not apply to them.

    We are becoming a society where “feelings” are more important than facts. We are engineering social issues where they don’t exist because we can’t fix the real problems – illegal immigration, ISIS, crime, and on and on. We are becoming a Nation, fundamentally based on, and grounded in the rules of law and basic Judaeo-Christian beliefs, that is ignoring both.

    We are not united Americans anymore. Rather, we have “progressed” into divided self interest groups.

    When Cankles is not indicted, in spite of obvious, BLATANT crimes, and is elected POTUS because she has an alleged vagina, and can self-identify as black, this Country will never recover.

    Your Pal,

    Maybe you should only get to use antibiotics if your clan invented it. Where does it end?

    Forget cultural appropriation. What about locker room appropriation? Males can now legally use female locker rooms on municipal property.

    http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2016/03/07/nyc-gender-identity-bathrooms-locker-rooms/

    “New York City has enacted a regulation that ensures people visiting city facilities can use restrooms or locker rooms aligned with their gender identity.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio signed an executive order on Monday that guarantees people access to single-sex facilities consistent with their gender identity at city facilities, including offices, pools and recreation centers, without the need to show identification or any other proof of gender. The move comes amid a continuing national debate over anti-discrimination laws.”

    This is a serious issues. I feel appropriated everyday at work. Totally violated. I am in a diverse field and there are various Asians – from Japan, China, India, etc. And nearly 100% just right in front me parade around in brooks brothers suits. They aren’t from Europe. But there they are, oxfords on their feet, ties hanging from their necks. Heck, some eat cheeseburgers at lunch and enjoy a beer after work. I feel culturally robbed.
