EDIT: A good thirty seconds after making this post it occurred to me to search via delicious and I found a page about it
. Oh well, consider this post a rec rather than a request :)
I'm having a discussion with another white feminist about appropriation of black feminist anti-racism by white feminists. I suck at explaining why cultural appropriation is bad so have various general essays to link to (eg Cultural Appropriation 101
), but I remember reading an essay from the original Cultural Appropriation Imbroglio which deals with exactly the kind of thing we're talking about and I can't find it.
As I recall the post explained why a Wiscon panel about (white) feminism with a title like "The Master has a Black and Decker" was bad, but googling that phrase gets me pages about actual drills or people simply mentioning the title of the panel.
Does anyone have a link? I skimmed through what I think is the relevant linkspam
but since I can't remember the title of the post got overwhelmed.
(nb I I'm not asking for people to explain why it's bad to me, since I think I understand that pretty well. But if I can find someone else explaining it better than I can I'd rather link to that than flail unconvincingly)
