Just wondering with all the claims of Cultural Appropriation happening recently. I can't but help and think if it were a different person doing this song, we'd be hearing all about how disrespectful and wrong it is.


I went and copped the chopsticks, put it in my bun just to pop #......
Chinese ink on, Siamese links on
Call me 2 Chainz, name go ding dong


Just thought it curious to see what others may think about it.

I'm fine with it, Nicki's done worse songs.

Chun Li always kicked my ass in Street Fighter with her damn fast kicks. And she was so happy dong it.......

If any white liberal points out anything "negative" that a black person does, that white liberal would be racist. Therefore, black people cannot be racist, or have any negative actions that one can speak of. Since Liberals are the only people who use words like "cultural appropriation", and blaming anyone but a white person is racist, the answer is No, this is not wrong.

I think she’s half chinese. Saw her on SNL the other night. Can’t beleive people like her music if that’s what it’s called. New hip hop/rap is garbage.

Oops, not half Chinese.

Eh, cultural appropriation is only when a person wears another culture's clothing in a very mocking way or wear it in a disrespecting way.

For example, a person wears Native American feather headdresses even though its only exclusively for religious elders.

The Utah girl's Chinese dress is not cultural appropriation because the Chinese dress was usually used for parties and the girl wore it to prom.

Your comment reminds me of this white guilt sjw who had a patronizing view toward black people.

To compare. Katy Perry dressed in a kimono for a performance and people cried about it. There's a definite double standard.

I'm gonna wear a kimono, a feather headdress and eat with chopsticks at the next party I go to. Hopefully it's on Taco Tuesday.

People are screaming "culture appropriation" if you look on social media. It's just not being reported on the MSM. In all honesty, it isn't news anyway.

I love the end of the video.

Barista: "Can I ask you a question?"
Lady: "What?"
Barista: "Was it a vanilla or a caramel?"
Lady: "It's caramel."

My God people go off the deep end, don't they.

I'm so sorry you are Black and you don't make a fair wage.......I voted for Hillary, I thought you should know that, not that it matters.


WOW. But she's not racist, so there's that.

That, in no way, surprises me.

Cultural Appropriation, it's what's hot now.

To call it silly, to call it stupid, would be to give it far, far too much credit.

She wasn't going to get caught in that Vanilla Privilege trap that was set by the Barista.

I need a date buckaroo, you interested?

Satire aside, the concept is so bizarrely un-America. We appropriate EVERYONE'S culture and assimilate it into the whole. That's what we do, that's how it works.

Straight blond hair? Cultural appropriation!
Any clothing? Cultural appropriation!
Cell Phone? Cultural appropriation!
Automobile? Cultural appropriation!
Italian food? Cultural appropriation!

The concept of cultural appropriation is so full of holes as to be laughable. In this case, No-Talent Nicki has no culture so she has to appropriate from other cultures.

It's not newsworthy save for the outrage contingent. Nicki manages to be outrageous without having to do this. I just want to know the rules of the game. They seem to change depending on the person doing the appropriation. The double standards seem to be obvious.

Basketball was invented by a white guy.

That scarily, is pretty solid Progressive Logic. Don't tar Liberals with that. I have Liberal Friends, they can accept opposing viewpoints. It's the Progressives who went off the deep end and end up pushing others down to drown while trying to save themselves.

cultural appropriating seems to be a quintessentially American thing. In my country, I doubt anyone has ever used that word. If you love something and want to show that surely it is not cultural appropriation. This PC nonsense is getting out of hand. But then again that what the power that be wants as they want to restrict even our ability to speak. Afterall, to misquote Agent Smith in the Matrix "how are you going to unite and start a revolution if you cannot speak?"

That would be an interesting Halloween costume.

Dude, I just might take you up on that... If only to see the double takes. Strictly as friends though, and as long as you pick up the bar bill--sure to be staggering.

Every culture on Earth has, does, and will appropriate parts of other cultures they find appealing, or useful, or both. I wonder at folks who think otherwise...they're not too bright, imho.
