Today I did a series of re-blogs and entries about Cultural Appropriation on my tumblr: dreamsofanothersummer.tumblr.com
It came about from me posting some entries and re-blogs about the Romani culture and how I am sick of people appropriating the word “gypsy” and ignoring the fact that it is a ethnic slur. I did some poking around and read a few blog entries about the topic of cultural appropriation.
I feel like I know more about the issue, but it’s given me some concerns about the way I live my life and whether or not I am a hypocrite- something I hate to be seen as. But I have learnt more, expanded my knowledge of this issue and it’s something I’ll keep up with on tumblr. 19 months ago
