How does it hurt PoC to have white people take part in their culture? Wouldn't it make people more accepting if we weren't telling them they're not allowed to even wear some clothes or eat a food? "Cultural appropriation" claims tell us we're not allowed to educate ourselves in other cultures.... Thus creating ignorance......

Uh, way to miss the point entirely.

As we (and others) have stated time and time again, there’s no problem with a white person eating a food from another culture or wearing a traditional garb when it’s in an appropriate situation. 

What’s not okay is taking a traditional garb and during it into a costume. What’s not okay is bastardizing a language or aspects of a culture and altering it so it’s more consumable to white people. That is what hurts POC. 

""Cultural appropriation" claims tell us we’re not allowed to educate ourselves in other cultures"

That’s literally not what this means at all.

If you’re too dense to understand this very basic concept then you are way beyond our help. 

Don’t you love it how they always try to make it into a question of ownership?

Like, “Why can’t I HAVE you?”

Never say that you “don’t care” about a person’s orientation, gender, disabilities, illnesses, ethnicity, religion, or any other aspect of their identities

Because all of those things are inherently a part of that person and their identity and by “not caring” about those things you are saying that you don’t care about them as a person, and also erasing important aspects of them

"Not caring" is not the same as being accepting, and it is certainly not respectful

Can someone please explain to me what the idea of cultural appropriation is and why it is a problem? Really just not getting it at the moment and would like to be a little more educated or have a conversation about…

Korean guys/girls are not all handsome/pretty by white standards of beauty.

Some of us have deep seated issues about our bodies and some of us get called “you don’t look Korean” because they’re not pale enough/thin enough/have acne scars/whatever that does not fit into your weirdass view of Koreans. 

They’re still Korean like me. That doesn’t invalidate their Koreanness. 

Our looks and body sizes and skin are all varied. Because we’re people.
