This actually reminded me of a story. I went to college for animation, and my teacher was Johan Klingler. You all know who he is if you’ve ever seen animation ever. He’s working with Warner Bros, Disney, Pixar, he actually is solely responsible for the camera techniques in Tarzan. Like O.O
Anyways, he was working on Rescuers Down Under. They’d made teasers and released it to a small bit of the public. The boy was originally supposed to be aboriginal. No joke. And they loved the idea of the movie, but they didn’t like the kid. They wanted him to be a blonde-haired, blue-eyed German boy. Which is weird because…World War? LOL
But anyway, the animators changed the boy into a German kid. That was a long time ago, and people nowadays probably would not give two damns about the race of the kid, but back then, it was a bad business idea.
Like I’d mentioned before, the more “woke” something in media is, the poorer it does.
It seems like there’s a little misunderstanding behind cultural appropriation, so I’m here to explain (at least what my perspective is). This is a long post so TL;DR at bottom.
The main controversy around white people wearing clothing from other cultures/styling their hair in hairstyles originating from other cultures is because of North American history. While the western world was developing and immigrants were moving to North America, POC were being oppressed and assimilated into “white” or “western” culture. This meant aspects of their culture were being shamed or even erased so they could have a false identity forced onto them to suit the mostly white society. First Nations peoples were especially mistreated as they were from North America first, then had their identity erased by the European settlers that came to their land.
So when white people use parts of other cultures in clothing/hair/etc, it’s pretty bad, because it’s like, “woah, wait, so we were shamed for wearing that but now you can do it and it’s fine?” This situation becomes worse when you see it in high-fashion runways. For example, white fashion models putting their hair in a traditionally black hairstyle is cool or trendy, but when a black person were to do it it would be ‘ghetto’.
This is where my view of things may diverge from other people’s, because it kind of relies more on personal opinion, so don’t take it as fact. But anyways…
I don’t believe that only white people can culturally appropriate. Without taking history into context, I believe that using an aspect of someone’s culture without being aware of the cultural significance of that aspect is cultural appropriation. It’s like you’re just using it because it “looks cool” without really diving into the history of it. Think of it as using once and then throwing away a sentimental object without knowing why it’s sentimental. Some people have said that people today can’t complain as their ancestors originated the culture but I disagree. Cultures carry on through generations and people who are integrated with theirs today understand how hurtful it is when something of a rich history is just used and thrown away like most people who culturally appropriate do.
As for myself, I wouldn’t mind if an aspect of my culture, like clothing or hair, was worn by someone who isn’t a descendant of that culture’s origin. As long as they educate themselves on its history and significance, I think it’s fine. But that’s just me.
TL;DR: Main reason people don’t like white people wearing things of other cultures is because of North America’s history of assimilation and colonialism. Also, I believe anyone can culturally appropriate if they use a part of someone’s culture without learning why it’s important.
i see a lot of people calling others sjws are appreciating the representation, which really annoys me since they don’t know what it’s like to constantly be ignored and forgotten
Funny thing is, some of them they insult aren’t even SJW’s. Like me. Not even close. They just rather use insults to get to their points instead of speaking respectfully, showing who’s the real immature one.
oh thank god someone agrees with me. i thought i was going to get hate.
i get forced diversity, but simply celebrating representation makes you an idiot?
Ignorance can come in many shapes and forms. As long as you know what’s true and right, you can see who’s the bigger person.
true, true. still boils my blood. though. black panther exposed a lot of racists. but yes youre right
Black Panther wasn’t a good movie imo, although I love Marvel mostly. Was waiting a lot more from it
People only watched it because it had black people. Smh. Disgraceful. And over-hyped it just because! I get it, it’s nice to see us in a movie, but it doesn’t deserve that entitlement for a “AMAZING, BEST MARVEL MOVIE” just from that.
yeah thats understandable. a lot of people didnt like the movie itself. but hating it because it has diversity? LOL
I watched it not because it had black people. I watched it cause I watched every Marvel movie starting from 2003, before Infinity War ^^
I never heard of this kind of hate about the movie tbh.
Which is what we should have acted with the movie. It’s just like any other one. I just wish others can realize that.
it sadly exists. especially on youtube.
Black Panther has nothing on Green Lantern OR Cyborg. …Or Black Lightening or Static Shock…
DC is just better than Marvel. LOL
