Cultural appropriation nonsense again

Anything that is not copyrighted or patented is free for all to use

Allure magazine is facing a bitter backlash after featuring a white model in a beauty article about how to get the perfect afro hairstyle.

The feature, which focuses on 70s-style hairdos being re-vamped by the modern day woman, sees actress Marissa Neitling, 31, modeling what Allure refers to as a 'soft, imperfect afro', prompting many readers to lash out at the publication on social media, questioning why it chose to use a white woman to model a traditional African American hairstyle.

'Why would you ever in your life think this was okay?' one person questioned on Twitter, while another added: 'Peak caucasity in Allure magazine y'all.'

'This is a perfect example of when a staff has no diversity on their team to tell them to rethink their delivery,' someone posted on Instagram, along with a picture of the offending feature. 


Isn't it bigotry and racism to say that only blacks can do certain things?

Saw two black boys with Mohawks at the store yesterday. Isn't that racist towards Indians (oops Native Americans)?

They want to tear down all the Confederate monuments but no one complains about the ones for the Buffalo Soldiers who participated in the massacres of the Indians.

Louis Farrakan will probably put a hit on the model. If this gets up black noses then there should be more of it after all how much fashion have they ripped from the white population?

Over the last few years the left has been redefining racism as something that is only done by whites (but not leftist whites) and that whites are automatically guilty of doing (again excepting themselves).

They are doing this because they know the truth behind the old statement "United we stand, divided we fall" and their goal has always been to make us fall because they plan to take up the reigns after the fall. This is only one of many ways they are dividing people to prevent us from standing together against their planned tyranny.
