    Apparently Sean King is the new Rachel dolezal and making a living from the #blacklivesmatter movement
    Heard of him, had to google to refresh my memz, and yes that fool. It's psychotic. Can we not be politically correct for once in our sad lives and just admit transracialism is a ****ing joke. And that cultural appropriation isn't one. FFS.

    Just google. Google any place in "North India." Like it's one plot of land, "North India" is vast as ****.

    Now google a place in the region.

    I'll help you and say Uttar Pradesh.

    Now google its people.

    Now stop saying North Indians are white.

    Now disappear.

    Yet the arabs and islamic scholars were better at it?
    Wow you're triggered. That is a debate you can have with Hindu Nationals and Indian scholars, and I am neither of those.

    You have completely missed the point of my post...

    But you don't see that instead of just hiring an Indian woman who is more talented and more beautiful with brown skin would be better?

    Instead of spray tanning the poor girl and making her cram-learn Tamil?
    I mean...if they played a white dude to be tanned up to play in Slumdog it would've...been sh*t. lol
    LOL! Slumdog was total sh*t anyway.

    Cambridge University students have cancelled an Around The World In 80 Days-themed event over fears the costumes they choose to wear may be offensive.

    Pembroke College's Junior Parlour Committee (JPC) feared that the theme could lead to 'cultural appropriation', with people wearing clothes from an ethnic group they don't belong to.

    (Yes, yes, its a Daily Mail link :rolleyes: )
    I think it's pretty much beyond argument at this point that the typical Cambridge student is a total dunderhead.

    No, Indian mathematics was going on for well over 2000 years before the Islamic scholars picked up on it. Even then they used the Greek foundations of mathematics which had start well over 1000 years before.

    Oh please don't pretend to be a moron. You're white and trivialising ethnic issues, clearly, with your emojis and linking other irrelevant cases of cultural appropriation cries. And you know that's what I was doing which is why you responded with this meme nonsense saying triggered. Goodbye. I mean Au revoir, since you're french and whatnot.
    Thats because these ethnic issues are in fact trivial.
