I saw an article the other day criticising white people for culturally appropriating "African-American Vernacular English". Surely that's cultural appropriation of cultural appropriation? And as cultural appropriation is supposedly just something white people do, when other races do it they must be culturally appropriating our culture of cultural appropriation?
Alternatively, it's a load of *******s people whinge about because they want a grievance.
Who actually cares? This is someone you will likely never meet doing something that doesn't affect you in any way, shape or form. This is the UK, if you really feel that angry at it, just laugh at her. Don't be the the wet wipe who gets angry because it's trendy and you're trying to impress that Hipster bartender in that Shoreditch vegan bar that you visit.
Yeah this is unacceptable and everyone knows why it is. I always say this everyone one wants to be black but nobody really wants to be black if you're black you can relate because you see it all the time.

Who cares? Let people look the way they want to look. What harm are these people doing anyone? Don't we have more important things to worry about?
who the hell has the time and energy to waste in giving a **** about what you wear, OP? Do you really think that we have nothing better to do than get offended over some pile of textile that you decided to wear in order to protect yourself from the mother****ing cold and humanoid dogs? Oh wait, there are some people who are like that.... wow. See, those people are quite sad, OP. They were taught to believe that caring about wearing clothes that are symbolc to a given culture that you have no connection to is evil. In my opinion, claiming that you own the thing or that it is from one cultuere when it isn't, is quite rude, but eh, I'll get over it due to me caring about semiotics and associations are not one of my top priorities. You simply wearing "black women clothing" is equivalent to me wearing a gym uniform that was traditionally worn by English men, despite not being british. Who has the time and energy to honestly give a **** for more than a 3.424 hours of their life?
OP, wear whatever the hell you want. If people come up to you and start complaining, just say "I'm wearing it because I like it, and that means I like the style of those who the outfit is associated with. What's wrong with that? Why is that a problem? I'm expressing the fact that I like it, how is that offensive?".

Wouldn't get away with it these days, would he? Mind you, I never got round to asking a black person if they found him funny.
Ali G enrols at Hogwarts... now, how did that spell go again?
