I don't really understand why it is a problem if you dress up like a certain culture in coachella. they think that it's beautiful how some people are dressed or used to be dressed, it actually is a praise for the culture. I mean they aren't doing it beacause they want to blame the people in that culture :) i don't mind eather when people who are not living in bavaria wear a dirndl ( sry if there are any mistakes )
dont apologize for mistakes when it comes to english- its the language of global capitalism and colonisation and should not be spoken correctly in the first place tbh
I personally think simply taking bits and pieces of someones culture first of all is disrespectful. White girls in random festivals think its pretty, use bindi as a fashion statement and couldnt care less about the entire culture and the meaning behind it. Furthermore, the people whose culture we’ve been appropriating are forced to blend in with the white mass, are often ashamed of their own heritage and culture, are considered “not assimilated enough” if they wear their bindi, are called dotheads etc. Is that fair? they cannot embrace their own culture and see white girls like me taking pieces they like and using them as accesories in order to stand out while what they are forced to do is blend in.
