Cultural appropriation


Can you see the “cultural appropriation“?

Horses were culturally appropriated by Native Americans from the Spanish. 

I think the Spanish are owed an apology and reparations.

    Why does anyone care about cultural appropriation? We have been acquiring technology from foreigners since the dawn of history.

      It is the latest liberal fetish.

      Somebody started obsessing about it on an Australian archaeology discussion group I am on, but nobody seems terribly interested so far.

      Like so much of leftist thought, it seems to be descending into self-parody and self-annihilation.

        Lately it’s become almost impossible to tell the difference between the parody and the real thing. They’re belief system is so ridiculous only a mental case would believe their shit.

      This whole “cultural appropriation” thing is just stupid.

      I have a book on my shelves, “The Snowmobile Revolution: Technology and Social Change in the Arctic”, about how northern peoples started using snowmobiles in their ordinary life (including for herding reindeer). Were they guilty of “cultural appropriation”?
