    Most ludicrous thing I ever saw was a bunch of Pakis on a camping trip. Stick to eating fried chicken you wogs.
    .....

    I don't think camping has a culture either lol

    seems i've found more racists than I thought I would see on TSR
    I can't believe there is this much hatred towards POCs like me who just want to try and reclaim the culture that was taken away from us without it becoming a trend or fashion statement

      Stop speaking English if you're not English.

      You are culturally appropriating our language.

      You don't know the struggles the English people have been through.

        you may not get it, if I were to show up to an office meeting in my traditional clothes, people would stare, talk and say I was unprofessional, I've been mocked before for wearing henna or how I wear my hair in school on national dress day or even on normal days, it's things like this that are now deeply rooted in society which we can't escape from. Just because people aren't persecuted anymore doesn't mean it never happened, our culture was taken away from us, not the other way around.

        It seems white people are the only people who can be racist or culturally appropriate. Cultural appropriation is a joke in itself.
        Actually, i strongly disagree with the comment. Cultural appropriation stems from the appropriation arguement between white people and African Americans. Many african americans believes white people appropriate their clothes, music, hairstyles and many other factors. Considering slavery and the main fact being that African Americans were not only stripped of their African Heritage/Culture, but even their real surnames. When the common white person appropriates a newly found culture they had to form for themselves post slavery, yes it can be extremely annoying and offensive:/.

        It's funny you say that when really she has every single right to complain about the negative connotations around her culture and the lack of cultural acceptance. The only reason other cultures (apart from White English) are in your country is because we were forced into here. Please stop commenting if the only replies you have are ignorant and simple minded

        Why is culture so important to some Libs, you can't be against a strong European culture but be strongly in favour of African or Asian cultures, in an almost nationalistic way. I believe in human culture.

        Clearly that is nonsense. Who is punishing them for wearing traditional Indian dress now?
        Sadly, it isnt nonsense... Post colonialisation Indians were mocked for embracing their own culture. Soon, they began dressing like quote said ' the white man ' and hoping to embrace more Eurocentric features/culture to fit in. This form of indoctrination has been present for over a century. I doubt that kind of mindset can leave a whole country so soon.

        If that is true then it is an Indian problem, not a British one.

        My family come from a White country that was colonised by a non-White country so I find the whole colonisation white people are racist thing quite funny.

        We were also bombed from Britain though so there's that.

        hahahahaha... sadly we cant return to our home countries purely on the basis, as due to Your countries colonialisation, our "3rd world" countries are now extremely lower ecoonomically developed in comparison to your own. Had your ancestors decided Not to colonise the the whole world... No one would need to live in your country to gain a "better life. So please educate yourself before you comment ignorant comments you racist bigot bye bye now x

        Funny you say that when the problem at hand stems from a white man. Had again your ancestors decided NOT to colonise the whole world and indoctrinate them into the racist ideals that they believe. Indians and many other cultural minorities wouldnt feel ashamed of their own culture and feel the need to be viewed as what the white man views as "Normal". I.e Eurocentric features

        There's no point in constantly talking about how much you hate White people while living in UK though, it's pretty pointless. What's the obsession with race? You sound like an Asian version of a Britains first member.

        If white people can't wear braids, then black people can't wear wigs with blonde, straight hair then. If people can't wear Indian styled clothes, then Indian people can't wear western style clothing. Skin/ear/lip stretching is a practice started hundreds of years ago in tribes, so people who aren't involved in their tribe shouldn't do it?

        People should be able to wear whatever they want and express themselves whatever way they want in my opinion.
