Espresso Talk Today

Jul 30, 2021

Justin Bieber in locks. Madonna wearing an elaborate North African headpiece and dress.  Pop singer Adele wearing Bantu knots. White children wearing Native headdresses on Halloween.  Katy Perry doing a Geisha performance. What do these have in common? These actions involve cultural items or rituals worn or practiced by White Americans. Is this cultural appropriation, appreciation, or denigration? This week, Robin, Hans, and Kirk (who founded the dynamic YouTube channel WadiSpeaks) discussed these questions and reach different and sometimes conflicting conclusions. Next week, Ben and Marlene discuss these same actions and the opinions are flying! Mel makes a surprise appearance too! Join this lively convo.
