Okay, so you know (probably) I'm all left-wing and everything. But I actually think this a rather silly idea. I'd' love to hear a good defense. Let me break it down; First, we are deciding what culture is appropriate for a person based on race. Isn't that segregation? And it seems to imply something about the relationship with the culture. It kind of enforces stereotyping everyone in that group with that culture. At least to me. By claiming ownership you're connecting it. Even though the same people will complain about being stereotyped as a culture. Secondly, we already do this and nobody complains. A Youtuber I found, who is a terrible racist btw, who promotes cultural onwership, calls herself Philogynoir for her profile. And you know what that is? Ancient Greek academic term (incorrectly) and French word for black (mispronounced by her, it's not nee-waar). If you want more remember that all Abrahamic religion comes from the Middle East. Do you see Jerusalem's people claiming ownership of Christianity? What about when black use "white" hair styles, isn't that the most obvious hypocrisy? Oh wait, no it's about a power narrative of course! Even though there are lots of other groups of people who also get some societal shit and none of them act like it creates a double standard. Depressed people mocking others for being positive would still be rude. Homeless people don't claim ownership of their cultural influence. And there are certainly exceptions, you think every white person is rich? What about the people in those groups? What about the racial prejudice between north and south in America? There's still a bit of that. Thirdly, why do you need this cultural ownership at all? Why do you care? Can you not see others using it as a flattery, that they think it's cool? The gay scene is usually attributed with modern leather culture, but I've never heard of any gay person feeling ownership. They may or not have some feelings about it, but the culture is clearly open for any person who enjoys that stuff. In conclusion, I see no justification in segregating culture by race, ignoring countless other examples of cultural exchange, and needing ownership of something which just isn't property anyway. What do you guys think?
