This post was inspired by this picture:

This picture is reblogged always by the white people appropriating cultures and not caring when they are called out upon it. These people care more about the animals than the human beings they profit off of, and I thought that was hilarious so I had to make a set just like the picture above.

All in all, this is a message to the honkies: stay in your lane.

Wait. Yoga, though????

The luaus, the headdresses, the Ta moko, the dreads, etc— yes, I totally see where you’re coming from. The yoga one, though, seems a little weird to me. I know there’s probably greater meaning to yoga beyond it being a strenuous, disciplined workout and exercise in meditation, but I don’t see how it’s harmful to adopt a new type of exercise that’s better suited for your body???

My doctor told me to take up yoga as an alternative to high-stress/adrenaline exercises because it would strengthen my body without destroying it— but I can’t because I’m stealing culture? Someone please explain this to me.

I think the issue with yoga is that it’s repacked and striped of it’s roots for the consumption of people who really don’t understand the history or roots of yoga, they take out all the ‘boring’ history and religion, and leave a few words like ‘Namaste’ to feel spiritual, but they never actually talk about Buddhism or Hinduism. There is also something disturbing about the fact that when a western person thinks about yoga they don’t picture an Indian person practicing their religion, but a white lady with blonde hair in spandex. 

This is exactly the same as telling someone not to learn another language or take up martial arts etc.

Pathetic post.

^ you clearly don’t fucking get it

Neither do you, judging from that eloquent rebuttal that is in no way a cop-out.

I’m quite curious if she’s going to call out non-Indians practicing yoga.  Or is it just white people?  I’m curious if she’s going to call out the many Tibetan and Islamic people who have adopted yoga and make it popular and included it in part of their culture.

I wonder if she calls out people who paint images in the style of “Creation of Adam”.  Or what about “Pieta”, which has spread across numerous cultures and been nearly stripped of all meaning, despite it being a work of religious art?

Or what about “Ride of the Valkyries”, being almost 200 years old, a song made by a German, about Norse mythology, and how it is lost nearly all significance when used nowadays?  Are you saying anyone who listens and enjoys that who “isn’t white” is suddenly appropriating it?

Lets be fucking honest here.  Yoga has been appropriated not just by white people, and has been done so for hundreds of years across Asia before white people even touched it.  It had already lost much of its cultural meaning by that time and, much like Bindis, most Indian people don’t consider it cultural appropriation.

I wonder what she’s going to say about Japan’s current hardon for Christian iconography.   Let’s see: rosary beads and crucifixes worn as fashion accessories.  A cartoon about giant robots causing angels to explode into bloody crosses of light.  A videogame where Mary Magdelene is reincarnated as a alien destroying android girl in armoured panties.

Poppy gets ten points for remembering Xenosaga!

my KOS MOS figma is one of my most prized possessions 

the only ones who care about this shit is the American, no, we do not care, do art is not appropriation, a person dancing is not apropacion, dreadlocks fucking are not appropriation (not even belong to a particular culture), painted face as the “catrina” is not appropriation (which is a disguise, is the equivalent of Jack o-lanter Mexicans), yoga is not aporpiacion, participate in festivals is no appropriation, no, not appropriation tattoos they are loaded with spiritual meanings and if you share spirituality are free to get tattooed. 

Culture is not a thing, culture is an experience, only if you take away the ability to practice this culture, is appropriation, is theft, but nothing that you guys like to call appropriation, is actually appropriation, stop fucking, we have practiced cultural exchange forever, and you seem to think that only when a white person does is wrong, you are idiots.

Learning things from different cultures isn’t stealing it is evolving to environments around you! And just because someones SKIN is white you think they act one way or another… like looking at their SKIN lets you know who they are as people?! (true bomb dropped).. ps America is a melting pot that was formed by people from different areas/cultures  immigrating to start a new.

fuckminseok asked: the facts you stated sound like the ones we've been hearing from the news, which have been proven as twisted stories. if i remember correctly, the store owner said micheal didn't even rob the store (tho i haven't been online recently so i'm sorry if thats incorrect info!!) plus, the autopsy report showed that he was killed from a kneeling position, and he had gunshots on his forearms (which usually only happens when someone has their arms raised, as you usually swing your arms while running)


Answer:

this is info I came by today and i know no one really knows the 100% truth im just saying not everything is in print you know?

So apparently this is what the news and others have suggested happened :
Micheal Brown robbed a store, took cigers, and hurt owner while leaving
a cop driving past Micheal and his friend thought they looked like description of the robbers plus it looked like they were holding cigars so the cop stop his car to question Adults ( Micheal was 18 and almost 6 ft)
 After Micheal attacked cop to try and steal a cop’s gun (after he already robbed a store and was caught on camera) there was a fire shot and Micheal backed away.
The cop got out of his car while Micheal was some feet away and told the adults to stop because they were running
when the cop pointed gun at Micheal and order him to stop Micheal was facing him with hands up but was taunting and yelling at cop. 
Then Micheal who was of a large size rushed at the cop.
The cop was shooting Micheal to stop him since Micheal WAS a threat. The cop finally after warning Micheal had no choice but to use deadly force against the Criminal.
___________
I know people are upset about Micheal Brown dying but more people are making this about race. If you look at the facts without color as a cop trying to arrest/question a criminal that attacked him for his gun and then was going to attack the cop again ..you have to see that the cop was in the right. It is sad Micheal died and I know his mom is upset but this guy made bad choice after bad choice. People need to stop with the riots and stop fighting and just wait for all the facts because before this the friend with Micheal and the mom were who people listened to.
The friend robbed a store and was lying aka hiding the facts about what happened and the mom wasn’t there and is blinded by her love for her son and making hard to believe that Micheal may have been in the wrong and then made things worse..
_-_____ Im sorry if my thoughts  make people mad but if people didn’t make things about race and jump to conclusions things wouldn’t be as bad. PS I am not 100% sure if all this information is true I just know there are always two stories 
this is information I came by earlier and i do not mean to stir the pot or anything because I know there is  a lot of bad shit going on write now im just saying calm down a little until you learn all the information you can

absolutely-bullshit asked: But do you actually know the facts or are you talking out of your ass? did you know them personally? were you at the store he "robbed"? Are you aware that he didn't have a weapon on him? Do you know about all the police brutality leading up to this event that was just the breaking point? This isn't just because of Mike Brown, this is years of being singled out, attacked, and killed by police because you "fit the description".


Answer:

there is security video of Mike Brown and the store owner saw him so he didn’t just fit the description he was the offender . And while he didn’t have a weapon he attacked the police officer twice and was a size were he could hurt someone without a weapon. 

and it is not out my ass it is information plus my thoughts i don’t have to know everything im just thinking that in this case Micheal Brown may not have been innocent

ras-al-ghul-is-dead:

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I’m sick of white people!! IM FUCKING SICK OF THEM!!!

"Not all white people."

"Stop generalizing."

"Not all white people."

"We all are human."

"Not all white people."

even the so called “good” white people wanna ignore this shit because it “makes them uncomfortable” fuck white people

okay I get that people are upset but 1 it is actually a good thing that during the ferguson case the body was out for a while bc even though it mad some people upset to see it means the crime-scene guys were looking at everything so that the case wouldn’t have doubt based in evidence and 2 all this sick of white people stuff is RACIST okay!   just because one cop who is white is a shit doesn’t mean all cop and all white people are bad.

  1. captain america first avenger costume
  2. avenger costume
  3. captain america the winter soldier costume
  4. avengers age of ultron costume

I just want to say the first costume is the beginning of captain american and cannot be messed with and it seems that the avenger costume is just like his costume updated. I think the Captain’s costume is the winter soldier was suppose to look less patriotic to show Steve losing himself in Shield work and now that Hydra and shield is down Steve is rebuilding the Captain and the image of the Captain America.

okay i am not the best writer so someone else needs to write a story were Bucky is recovering and staying with the avengers but doesn’t want to be near Steve thinking that Steve wouldn’t understand him anymore. Slowly Bucky begins to see that no one understand Steve. For example whenever Clint and Bucky are watching wrestling Clint changes the channel to baseball when Steve walks in thinking Steve won’t like the violence, but Bucky knows Steve hates baseball. 


A fic like that where Bucky realizes Steve is as alone and lost as he is.

huffingtonpost:

Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space. 

So watch this Pantene commercial here to inspire you to stop saying sorry for no reason. 

okay apologizing for interrupting people and bumping people is what you should do when I saw the women at the the bottom i  wasn’t thinking ‘good for you girl’ I WAS thinking ‘what a bitch’. If a study shows men don’t apologize as much then frown on that and change that attitude .  For real if a man or woman did any of these and was then rude and stuck up about it…oh no…oh hell no.
