#4. Paula Deen Compares Herself to Michael Sam
At this point, the best recipe for Paula Deen’s reacceptance into the public is a liberal mix of time and shutting the fuck up. While that might have paid off, the famously racist chef recently decided to not only undercook her humble pie, but also drop trou and lay on a whipped cream steamer in the form of this headline:
borders / granice - photo exhibition by Piotr Bondarczyk & Piotr Sikora - Polish traditional costumes presented by people of different nationalities!
Wondering how SJ bloggers haven’t screamed cultural appropritation yet :D. I like the photos though.
What’s the point of this… Why?
This makes me genuinely angry. If I was to wear, say, a sari, the SJW’s would flip shit. Yet this is ok? These costumes belong to the POLISH. It isn’t there’s to take.
Oh man the amount of white butthurt in this is amazing
Nevermind that the two people who set up the photoshoot and got all these different people to wear the costumes ARE POLISH
If an Indian person invited you to their wedding and offered to lend you their sari so you would fit in, I doubt any of the Indian people at the wedding would be offended. Because someone who owns the culture and it’s costumes invited you into it. If you just find a sari somewhere and put it on and then act like you’re so ~innovative~ then yes, that’s cultural appropriation.
I don’t really know why I’m bothering to address you though, given your profile, I don’t expect your ignorant gringa ass to understand.
They REALLY don’t grok the ‘sharing vs. theft’ aspect of appropriation, do they?
The photos are amazing. I’m really smitten with them. I’m not smitten with the smug, ignorant whining.
Dear Confused White People, this isn’t appropriation in the sense of cherry-picking iconic and representational bits of a culture in order to enhance one’s fashion or status. This is accurate representation of (and maybe even original) traditional Polish costume, in full, worn by people of colour in such a way as to showcase the art and skill involved in the creation of those costumes. The art here, I expect, is in the cognitive dissonance (in whites, mostly) between the costume and the skin colour of each model. The whole of the costume is shown together and not broken down into meaningless elements.
Furthermore, appropriation is specifically a ‘downward’ act, in that it’s done by people with more sociopolitical power to the objects and elements of a culture belonging to those with significantly less power. Appropriation divorces (generally) iconic and powerful elements of a culture from that culture and its people in order to increase the power and pleasure of a second group that already has more sociopolitical power, thereby erasing the context and meaning of those elements and further disempowering those in the originating culture.
I am rather baffled that you people don’t understand this kind of basic context though I guess I shouldn’t be. It’s just that it’s not very complicated and if you’ve got the wherewithal to be on Tumblr complaining about it you do have the means by which to have educated yourself on the subject. If you don’t get it at this point, you really need to take a seat and stop playing ‘gotcha’ like you’re trying to win points in a trivia game when other people who call out real appropriation are trying to take back their cultures, their origins, and their history from the great white threshing machine of which you’re presently a working part.
I’m Polish and I love this photoset I am proud of my people and culture and the beautiful women in our costume
Also, IT IS ENTIRELY POSSIBLE THAT ANY OR ALL OF THESE PEOPLE ARE POLISH.
To my black male followers: Do you feel like you have certain privileges over white women based on patriarchy?
no zero none at all white women are more protected that every animal on the endangered species list combined the fuck is this nonsense
when (no I don’t mean IF) the cops come I’m gettin shot first
if I’m in a burning building with a white woman I’m gettin saved last
if I’m crying and a white woman is crying…I’ll get my ass beat then the people who beat my ass will hand the white woman some tissues
Comments on the trailer of the new Annie movie staring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx.
Would you just look at how racism isn’t a thing in today’s society.
White people being progressive as usual. No racism to see here.
I want heads ….. I want their fucking heads …. fuck these monsters
"It would keep the character more innocent"
HOOHOHOHOHOAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH I AM BREATHING FIRE HOW FUCKING DARE THESE SWINES EVEN THINK OF COMING FOR LITTLE BLACK GIRLS
Lol at the racist dumb ass going “Annie is a white name” when that was my mother’s nickname for me for years…..
"it would be relatable to more people" yeah more white people maybe
Apparently only white people are relatable. Black people are just too alien and strange.
Whtes have humanity when we don’t

As I said many times when this issue 1st hit the stands, this image represents everything I love about collaboration. I had an image in my head that was so close to this, Stuart was able to understand it and turn it into this, in my opinion, perfect comic book spread.
you actually don’t need to see the rest of the story. everything is here.
