White girls with dreads can be pretty hot, if the girl is hot and the dreads dont look like shit.
Sadly the only ones around where I live are all lesbians, feelsbadman.

as someone who is essentially doing ethnology & cultural sciences I can assure you that most people in this spectrum of the humanities do not believe in cultural appropriation at all, simply because the notion of holistic cultures is a fucking joke and no one taken seriously abides by it anymore.

taking cultural appropriation seriously is, much like white guilt, trigger warnings and most of the other bullshit plaguing the social sciences, a phenomenon that can be traced back to American retardation.

gross because gross or 'gross' because politically incorrect?

i actually saw 1 punk girl with dyed black dreads (her front hair wasnt dreads, normal hair) and she looked beyond amazing, make-up on point and those contact-lenses that covers your whole eyes in black

but all other ppl with dreads look like complete shit

good to hear

i find it ironic that people who are pro '"multi-cultural"-societies' often have tendencies to be tumblerinas who believe white ppl with dreads are "appropriating" and that it's worse than committing murder.

I think that some level of respect is in order. i.e., don't look like a fucking ugly mess when you try copying some other culture's stuff, but getting offended over "cultural appropriation" is a waste of time. Cultural appropriation is literally how human progress spreads.

The only time somebody should be chastised for cultural appropriation is when somebody takes advantage of some other group's suffering to put themselves ahead, despite sharing none of the background. For example, when Senator Elizabeth Warren masqueraded as a Cherokee in order to gain affirmative action benefits as a law professor at Harvard University, despite the fact that she is exactly 0% Cherokee.

gross as in aesthetically gross. i've never seen it pulled off properly on a white person

cultural appropriation doesn't make sense to me, it's like a weird form of segregation or something. i understand when it comes to something like blackface though where its use originated to make fun of black people, but i don't know if that's even considered appropriation or just plain being racist

your first example is not cultural appropriation, it is merely misrepresentation

your second example is not cultural appropriation, it is merely fraud

of course I agree with both statements.
