Because you may have Native blood, but do you have the heart to pump it?

If a person of colour tells you that what you’re wearing is offensive then don’t wear it.

Disclaimer: This comic only applies to those [“you” meaning those who wear headdresses where it does not apply to them or their culture, hense cultural appropriation] or have in some way done offense in the term of cultural appropriation and this post was created specifically for said people in order to perhaps gain a better understanding of why cultural appropriation is offensive to many Native Americans [and to whom it applies within any person of colour] and strictly for educational purposes. This post does not mean to offend those who have done some sort of act of unintentional offense to Native Americans in the past by means of cultural appropriation and presently understand the offense that was made and regret it.

  • I hear:I am really into fetishizing an unholy ideal of westernized geishas and school girls. I equate "light skinned east asian" with "the entire continent of asia" and I will never date a south east, south, or dark skinned east asian woman because "that's not really asian." Also, I will attempt to speak mangled Japanese at any Asian woman I see, in an attempt to be "Cultural" and worldly."

  • When a white person says:I don't see race. WE ARE ALL EQUAL
  • I hear:I think I'm super hip because I have only read the first two lines of "I Have a Dream" and am a firm believer in erasing the wrongs of the past because I believe that everything is AWESOME now. Also, I want to use the n-word to sing along to Kanye.

  • When a white person says:I think I need a spirit journey because I feel so...disconnected from the ENVIRONMENT
  • I hear:I really want pot to be legalized but also I want to appear deep, so I'm going to spout a whole bunch of nonsense involving stereotypes of Native American culture in an attempt to impress all my other white, hipster friends.
