“Black appropriation” and “culturally insensitive” are phrases that appear frequently in the news. It seems that every other day some celebrity – usually white – is called out for wearing cornrows or a Native American headdress. I’m not going to go through every incident here and give my take on what is or isn’t appropriate. I’ll let the college professors do that.
But I think it should be fairly obvious that blackface is a definite no-no. Kim Kardashian has come under fire in the past for her big butt (which many people think is fake), her love of cornrows and even her love of black men. Recently she has been accused of blackening up. Finally she is responding to her critics.
