the answer to this idiocy - is simple " cultural approriation " must be an all or nothing situation

thus - the sane world can just get on with life

while the idiots can figure out how to cope without the roman alphabet and arabic numerals

trust me - that will keep them occupied for a sufficient time

They won't call it a black list, they will call it an index or a Google doc. But anyone with half a brain to rub together can see this for what it is. Racism

This is no different than back in the 1990's when affirmative action gave special treatment to "people of color" when hiring. It is racism-simple.
It is difficult to hold someone responsible for a whole societies perceived racism.

and another thing - having read the OP sorces - a key " complaint " in this farce seems to be that [ paraphrasing ]

" 2 white women went to mexico and asked for advice [ which was apparently freely given ] and parsed it all down to a menu that they then used in portland "

now unless you fundamentallly disagree with my paraphrased summation [ in which case explain why ] -

the problem here is blisteringly obvious

hint - if you want to develope a caffeienated carbonated soft drink - try asking pesi co and the coca cola corp for recepie advice - and see how far you get

Extending your post

Shouldn't these people be on a witch hunt for those who leaked the secret of a good burrito.

It seems as though we have too many people with little education who think that they understand the world not knowing what they don't know about unintended consequences of mixed or multiple cultures. Carrying your arguments further, we can say that only Jewish people can use Einstein's equations but only English can use calculus. But Einstein was German-born so Germans could also use his equations and he was working for the Swiss Patent office when he came up with relativity, so the Swiss can use those. Leibniz also independently came up with Calculus, so the Germans could use his version, subject to inspection by the International Calculus Commission. The cases will be in the International Courts of Cultural Appropriations for centuries

As for me, my families came from Northern Italy so the Pesto Polizia and Risotto Patrol will be checking your supper table to make sure that you haven't illegally appropriated that which is not yours. The British will only be able to eat boiled food and Shepherds pie. Alas, Guinness will be off limits for me but none of you will be able to drink Barolo at supper.

The people who the took the info from were not Coke and Pepsi. They were small restaurants and in Mexico it literally can be a women making these and selling them from her home.

They did not steal a "secret". They went to many different places and watched and pieced the process together of how to make tortillas. One of the women supposedly reverse engineered the process back in Portland.

This is a none issue, just like white people making any diff kind of food or "people of color" making food their culture did not invent.

This is all racism.

I don't understand your question. Can you share what you are trying to say?

I may be overthinking this... or I may be giving these folks too much credit... but I couldn't help but think of Alinsky's rule #4 for radicals: "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules." If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules." Wikipedia

Could this be an opening salvo on private intellectual property rights?

very interesting post

This is being done for a reason. Your idea of them getting taken down m=by their own rules is a good one.
