My friend said this is a good exemplification of culture and cultural appropriation:
If someone has a car, let’s say they made that car, or bought it. Either way; they worked really hard to get that car.
It is THEIR car and they have the right to not let anyone they don’t know or don’t want on their car.
And if you try to break into their car or steal their car WITHOUT PERMISSION, even if it’s just because you really appreciate that car and would take really good care of it, if you are not allowed in you are not the good guy. You don’t have the right into that car, you’re doing something that is rightfully not viewed well. If you try to do anything to or with that car without the owners consent and full permission, you are stealing.
And, repeating, the owner of the car, have the right not to let people they don’t want in. And they have the right to only allow certain people.
Maybe that car is passed down by heritage.
Maybe you can be allowed in by doing some kind of deed.
Maybe if they like you they’ll let you in.
But unless you have consent of the owners you are stealing their car and that isn’t good.
my honest opinion? it takes a lot of courage for an artist or a band to make something that is THIS different than their previous stuff, and I’m really proud of Fall Out Boy for trying something new and way stoked to see what the rest of the album and this new era are gonna be like. change is good, and I’m glad they’re not just stuck a rut where all their music sounds the same. but that’s just my opinion.
