Your food court noodles? Some people may find them offensive

The cultural appropriation  nonsense in extreme form.  Apparently Mexican, Vietnamese and Japanese food should only be eaten by Mexicans, Vietnamese and Japanese.  And, Horrors! It should not be modified to suit American tastes

IF YOU ask someone to cite examples of cultural appropriation, there’s a good chance they’ll give you one of the two issues that have been well publicised in recent times.

There’s black face ... and the Native American Indian headdresses often spied at musical festivals and in fashion

But there’s a new culprit being called out for cultural appropriation and it’s in the spotlight today, as Girls creator Lena Dunham mentioned it in a recent magazine article.

Dunham is standing in solidarity with students from her old college, who protested that Oberlin College was “insensitive” for serving culturally appropriated food in its dining halls.

“There are now big conversations at Oberlin, where I went to college, about cultural appropriation and whether the dining hall sushi and banh mi disrespect certain cuisines.

The press reported it as, ‘How crazy are Oberlin kids?’ But to me, it was actually, ‘Right on,’” Dunham told the magazine.

Should hamburgers only be eaten in Hamburg? And Champagne only drunk in France?

There is no such thing as "cultural appropriation", all cultures grow and change mainly by adopting new ideas from other cultures usually with an alteration. To be upset by it is to be ignorant in the extreme.

More politically (in)correct crap from the leftists. Food is food. In Australia we have fusion food where food from different cultures is blended to create a local food representative of the cultures we have. So far no lefty in Australia has been stupid enough to suggest that we stop doing so, for to do so would only feed into the immigration issues we have at the moment and play against increased immigration especially from certain religious cultures from middle eastern and African countries who are in focus due to their unwillingness to integrate. For me personally, my opinion is integrate or emigrate. Embrace the Australian culture or leave since their is no place for you.
