Thanks to Rachel Dolezal’s trainwreck of a racial facade, the issue of cultural appropriation has entered the consciousness of those previously oblivious to the fact that no, it wasn’t okay for Gwen Stefani to wear a bindi and fetishize Japanese culture, and no, it’s not okay for Igloo Australia to claim the rap crown for herself while ignoring the plight of people of color. But many still have a lot to learn. Baltimore Racial Justice Action has formed a panel to discuss the anti-blackness of black cultural appropriation, so participants can express their frustration, or get their shit straight.
