FINALLY SOMETHING LIKE THIS BECOMES POPULAR OH MY FUCK

THANK YOU

To clarify: cultural appropriation is totally a thing, THIS JUST ISN’T AN EXAMPLE OF IT. 

“According to critics of the practice, cultural appropriation differs from acculturation, assimilation, or cultural exchange in that this appropriation is a form of colonialism: cultural elements are copied from a minority culture by members of a dominant culture, and these elements are used outside of their original cultural context—sometimes even against the expressly stated wishes of members of the originating culture.““Often, the original meaning of these cultural elements is lost or distorted, and such displays are often viewed as disrespectful, or even as a form of desecration, by members of the originating culture. Cultural elements which may have deep meaning to the original culture may be reduced to “exotic” fashion or toys by those from the dominant culture.”

cultural apreciation: wearing Kimoni respectful and doing tea ceremony and just enjoying the culture by understanding and learning

colonialism: sartorialadventure: cestriankiwi: josef-tribbiani: bigwordsandsharpedges: The native Maori people of New Zealand have tattooed their faces for centuries. They had a complex warrior culture before the arrival of Europeans, and suffered under early colonialism, but have experienced a cultural revival since the 60′s.  The marks are called moko, and are etched with chisels instead of needles to leave grooves along with the ink. The true form is sacred, unique to each person, and distinct from European tattoos that mimic that traditional style. There arent many pictures non combat related that look this badass Actually most Tā moko are done with modern tattoo equipment these days, but some people get them done the traditional way. And, as others have said, they’re not for Non- Māori, as they have specific meanings and significance. If you want a tattoo with Māori style, you can get a kirituhi. These avoid any designs associated with particular tribes or famous people you’re not related to. Kirituhi is a Māori style tattoo either made by a non-Māori tattooer, or made for a non-Māori wearer. Kirituhi has mana of it’s own and is a design telling the unique story of the wearer in the visual language of Māori art and design. Kiri means ‘skin’, and tuhi means ‘to write, draw, record, adorn or decorate with painting’.Kirituhi is not restricted to only Māori people, and it is a way for Māori to share our cultural arts with people from around the world in a respectful manner, and for non-Māori artists to enjoy our beautiful art form as well. I happily do kirituhi for my clients around the world and it is a privilege to do such work for them.Kirituhi is no lesser an artform than moko, however it is different and I believe these differences must be acknowledged and respected, so that the integrity of our taonga Māori – moko, is maintained around the world. Moko is uniquely Māori and it is strictly reserved to be done by Māori, for Māori.If either the recipient or tattooer do not have Māori whakapapa, then the resulting design is a Māori Style tattoo or kirituhi, NOT moko. The word moko originated from the Māori atua (god) of volcanic activity and earthquakes, Rūaumoko – therefore the origin of tā moko is divine and sacred – to me this is no small thing, nor should it be dismissed. As my mentor once told me, ‘moko is about 99% culture, and 1% tattoo’. (source)

No seasoning or just salt. I think we should mock japanese people too. Generalize them as having no taste or ability to cook. And laugh at them if they say it’s racism or childish. The difference is white people colonized—raped, stole and destroyed—other cultures for these seasonings…that they don’t even use ☺️therein lies the irony.

Lady, i have 2 degrees on this. I literally have walls of books on the history of food. White people didnt rape, colonize, steal, or destroy anymore than the Chinese did. And i doubt you would be okay saying this about Asians. People tended to use less seasoning back ghen because food was bred and grown differently. Things like chicken and beef had way more natural flavor, so additional seasonings werent really needed. In fact, for some places, seasonings were typically used by the poor, who were left with bad tasting scraps. Other places had them solely for the rich, since non native spices were incredibly expensive. Just like with Japanese culture, food culture in European cultures are often rely on tradition. Traditional methods are used, even if obsolete from newly available ingredients. It’s why old traditional methods of wine and cheese making are still used today. In fact, simple flavors and limited seasonings are available in a large amount of African dishes. The whole “white people dont season their food” stereotype originated in the US, and is clearly wrong, since European immigrants brought over tons of well seasoned and loved food like pizza, sausages, gyros, literally a ton of well known french dishes. I mean most southern cuisine came from French immigrants, and African slaves and paid servants (who at the time didnt even have access to most spices) simply copied those. The only real nuance is the addition of peppers and things like nutmeg and corn (originating in the americas) which European immigrants had already been using in their recipes. ( Actual soul food that can be entirely credited to African Americans is limited). The point is that the caricature of white people’s cooking being unseasoned is a very real part of reality for other cultures. Japan prides its traditional food with simplistic flavors. As in minimal or no seasoning. So any mocking you have for white people, equally (if not moreso) applies to the Japanese. You clearly don’t think it’s okay to say these same things to Asians, so it is clear that it isnt the action itself that you have a problem with, but the race doing it. Youre a racist. You think just because you mr opinions are popular and other bad activists are on your side, that you are in the right. I think we know from history that a popular opinion isnt always the right one.

How Snobbery Helped Take The Spice Out Of European Cooking I dont think you even read this. It clearly states that while Indians (and it only relies on indians, not the mentioned Japanese or really any other Asian country) focus on curry, while Europeans often focused on gravies and sauces. Italian sauces for instance relied on fresh herbs (not spices), while French sauces relied more on stocks. Once dried peppers came over, many countries used paprika to season their stews, and others regularly used rosemary, bayleaf, thyme, and pepper. It’s really odd that you would compare any country’s use of spice to India’s. Essentially anyone’s would use less spice in comparison. In fact, as shown in the link, India is known for contrasting flavors using odd spice combinations that most countries (including non european) would never use. It doesnt really prove your point. It just shows that you really dont understand how these things work. Your grasp of history is poor, because according to your other posts, you actually think white people invented racism. You keep mentioning atrocities Europeans committed and act like they are the only ones who did them, which gives you permission to be racist. You are the one who doesnt understand history. And you do not understand food culture among European countries. You are just driven by stereotypes and opinion peices.

Kirituhi has mana of it’s own and is a design telling the unique story of the wearer in the visual language of Māori art and design. Kiri means ‘skin’, and tuhi means ‘to write, draw, record, adorn or decorate with painting’.Kirituhi is not restricted to only Māori people, and it is a way for Māori to share our cultural arts with people from around the world in a respectful manner, and for non-Māori artists to enjoy our beautiful art form as well. I happily do kirituhi for my clients around the world and it is a privilege to do such work for them.Kirituhi is no lesser an artform than moko, however it is different and I believe these differences must be acknowledged and respected, so that the integrity of our taonga Māori – moko, is maintained around the world.




Moko is uniquely Māori and it is strictly reserved to be done by Māori, for Māori.If either the recipient or tattooer do not have Māori whakapapa, then the resulting design is a Māori Style tattoo or kirituhi, NOT moko. The word moko originated from the Māori atua (god) of volcanic activity and earthquakes, Rūaumoko – therefore the origin of tā moko is divine and sacred – to me this is no small thing, nor should it be dismissed.




As my mentor once told me, ‘moko is about 99% culture, and 1% tattoo’.

colonialism: sartorialadventure: cestriankiwi: josef-tribbiani: bigwordsandsharpedges: The native Maori people of New Zealand have tattooed their faces for centuries. They had a complex warrior culture before the arrival of Europeans, and suffered under early colonialism, but have experienced a cultural revival since the 60′s.  The marks are called moko, and are etched with chisels instead of needles to leave grooves along with the ink.

I will teach her the same, not just by what I tell her, but what I show her. Her mother will be African & practice natural beauty as a way of life just by being true to her ancestors & her beautiful African culture. We will raise her eating organic, natural electrical alkaline soul food. There will be no superficiality, she will be home schooled or schooled in a pan African school run by Africans & taught an Afrocentric curriculum. I went to European school, run by Europeans, that had a European curriculum. It was miseducation. It's fine for Europeans but not for Africans. We will make sure she knows Herstory not just the story of men. We will inform her about all religions & show her the reality of man & how regardless of his preaching, his actions negate his fantasies. We will teach her about MA'AT, food combining, circadian rhythms of the body, police brutality, transatlantic & trans Saharan slavery, colonialism, Kemet, Kush, the dogon, the himba, the Gerzeans, Badarians & Nagadans, because many of the Neolithic African cultures were matriarchal, she will learn this when I teach her about the people at Merimde & how the Africans called the Natufians were the first peoples in Palestine 10,000 years ago. I will teach her how using radiocarbon dating, the Archaeologists Alison brooks & John Yellen have uncovered artefacts that highlight advanced Katandan & Ishango cultures in east central Africa, that date back as old as 70,000 years ago. This level of advancement was not achieved out of Africa until at least 54,000 years later. I will teach her about the Queens, the farmers the freedom fighters and the mothers of civilisation. How it was an African woman Fatima Cécile Fatiman, who was the spiritual leader of the Haitian revolution, she organised the Voodoo ceremony at Bois Caïman which was the starting point for the only revolution in human history, where the enslaved population have overthrown the oppressive goverment & become the goverment.

colonialism: LGBT if you ain't excited about 4th of july you probs know US history is just genocide, colonialism, and oppression Cloyd Rivers @CloydRivers If you ain't excited about Fourth of July, you probably drink unsweet tea, drive a Prius, and burn American flags for fun. No I'm not going to burn flags on the street, but I'm not going to celebrate Independence Day either. Why I'm not celebrating 4th Of July? Because the America I envision celebrates diversity and equality, not just independence. Independence makes no sense when it is given to one group of people while denied for others. That means freedom and equal rights are for everyone, including women, people of color, queer folks, immigrants, people with disabilities. Too often, LGBTQ still have no voice or place at the policy table, just like many other minorities. I find it extremely unfair and unjust. The fact that we're LGBTQ does not make us any less American! This country has a lot of work to do before the "independence" in "Independence Day" is a reality for everyone. Then we can all celebrate. Still, if you celebrate this holiday then I wish you happy 4th of July.

 Cloyd Rivers @CloydRivers
 If you ain't excited about Fourth of July, you
 probably drink unsweet tea, drive a Prius, and
 burn American flags for fun.
No I'm not going to burn flags on the street, but I'm not going to celebrate Independence Day either. Why I'm not celebrating 4th Of July? Because the America I envision celebrates diversity and equality, not just independence. Independence makes no sense when it is given to one group of people while denied for others. That means freedom and equal rights are for everyone, including women, people of color, queer folks, immigrants, people with disabilities. Too often, LGBTQ still have no voice or place at the policy table, just like many other minorities. I find it extremely unfair and unjust. The fact that we're LGBTQ does not make us any less American! This country has a lot of work to do before the "independence" in "Independence Day" is a reality for everyone. Then we can all celebrate. Still, if you celebrate this holiday then I wish you happy 4th of July.

colonialism: Somali woman with bananas k 197Os a chakabarS Analysis of the Economic System of Somalia "Italian colonialism could not see beyond bananas, practically it didn’t develop anything beyond bananas. It was a kind of colonialism that did not even look after its own interests: In other words it was short-sighted. Then came independence and things did not change very much, because the old leaders were simply the puppets controlled by old colonial interests." - Siyaad Barre Let us investigate the real economic situation of those years and examine the conditions of the agricultural, industrial and service sectors which had survived the difficult events the country experienced, during the scramble for Africa at the end of the Second World War and the necessary creation of a new international order. This will be done with the help of unpublished sources from the historical archives of the Banca d’Italia, which give tangible evidence of its work, even after the end of the Trusteeship. The Economic-Agrarian Activities of the Population and Their Evolution About 4-5 of the population of Somalia was engaged in agriculture and subsistence pastoral farming. The country was divided into four regions: northern Somalia or Migiurtinia with an arid climate and little vegetation, central Somalia or Mudug, equally arid and with a nomadic population, central-southern Somalia, which had the most developed agricultural and animal husbandry sectors and southern Somalia or Lower Juba with thick vegetation and very rich fauna. One of the greatest problems was the shortage of water. Water reserves were limited to the area between the Jubba and Shabelle Rivers and outside of this area there were only wells. The most modern forms of agriculture were concentrated in the southern area where there are greater water resources: banana and sugar cane plantations. In the other regions of the country the lack of water made agricultural resources very scarce, limiting activity to oases where date palms were cultivated. There were, therefore, two basic agricultural sectors: one of a modern type oriented towards exportation, whose main crops were sugar cane, bananas, cotton, peanuts, cassava and grapefruit; more below 👇🏿 chakabars

colonialism: Beautiful Muqdisho, Somalia, 197Os a Before the civil war @chakabars A brief history Over the past two decades the nature of the Somali crisis and the international context within which it is occurring have been constantly changing. It has mutated from a civil war in the 1980s, through state collapse, clan factionalism and warlordism in the 1990s, to a globalised ideological conflict in the first decade of the new millennium. In this time the international environment has also changed, from the end of the Cold War to the ‘global war on terror’, which impacts directly on the crisis and international responses to it. This poses a problem for Somalis and international actors working to build peace. Initiatives that may have appeared to offer a solution in earlier years may no longer be applicable and there is a risk of fighting yesterday’s war or building yesterday’s peace. This article traces the evolution of the Somali conflict and some of the continuities that run through it. From Cold War to civil war 1988-91 The collapse of the Somali state was the consequence of a combination of internal and external factors. Externally there were the legacies of European colonialism that divided the Somali people into five states, the impact of Cold War politics in shoring up a predatory state, and the cumulative effect of wars with neighbouring states, most damagingly the 1977-78 Ogaden war with Ethiopia. Internally, there were contradictions between a centralised state authority, and a fractious kinship system and the Somali pastoral culture in which power is diffused. Next came the Somali National Movement (SNM) formed in 1982 that drew its support from the Isaaq clan. The SNM insurgency escalated into a full-scale civil war in 1988 when it attacked government garrisons in Burco and Hargeisa. The government responded with a ferocious assault on the Isaaq clan, killing some 50,000 people and forcing 650,000 to flee to Ethiopia and Djibouti. Somalia’s collapse was hastened by the ending of the Cold War. As Somalia’s strategic importance to the West declined, the foreign aid that had sustained the state was withdrawn.

colonialism: How to get down with your squad @chaka bars La Buraanbur is traditional Somali poetry Mainly used by women to share their skills, thoughts struggles and emotions & real life This is so sick, buraanbur got me feeling like I'm at a hip hop rave-break dance battle, mc cypher. Super lit 🔥🔥🔥 🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴 ❤️❤️❤️ The buraanbur traditionally served as an important and powerful medium used by women throughout Greater Somalia to share their thoughts, experiences and aspirations. Such poems are typically centered on topics relating to females, including child-rearing and marital relations. The poems can also deal with social and political issues in general, and are sometimes accompanied by drums, clapping, and dancing. Buraanbur has traditionally been an important part of local culture in Greater Somalia. Historically, the verse form was employed during the independence movement. It continues to play an important role by conveying political, social and educational messages and general awareness raising. Poems composed by Halima Godane, Raha Ayaanle Guled and Hawa Jibril were powerful instruments in mobilizing constituencies against the colonial authorities. In this vein, Jibril explained why women joined the struggle against colonialism: "We wanted to break away from our seclusion, We wanted to have the responsibility, To express our feelings and our views, We wanted to show our concern for our country" chakabars blessed @amaalnuux

colonialism: Somalians have had to fight the Italians British, French, Cubans, Ethiopians &more because everyone wants control of Somalia BARTAMAHA, COM chakabars Colonialism of Somalia 🇸🇴 : 1840-1960 Between 1840 and 1886, the British East India Company established a series of trade treaties with various Somali chiefs. Italy also had a hand in the early establishment of Somalia and marked out the boundaries of Italian Somaliland in the south between 1897 and 1908. Ethiopia claimed the Ogaden region of western Somaliland in 1897. The first uprising against colonialism occurred when Somalis sought to push the Ethiopians out of the Ogaden region but then expanded to target European colonists as well. The Dervish State, headed Mohammed Abdille Hassan, an Ogaden himself who the British referred to as “Mad Mullah,” conducted a religious-based war of resistance against the Ethiopians and British from 1899 to 1920, resulting in the death of nearly one third of northern Somalia’s population. Great Britain defeated Hassan in 1920. Italy maintained control of Italian Somaliland as a part of its African empire (including Ethiopia and Eritrea) until 1941. During WWII Great Britain also took over these areas and ruled them as military protectorates until 1949, at which time the newly formed United Nations granted Italy a trusteeship over most of present-day Somalia. The British maintained a trusteeship over what is today the self-declared state of Somaliland. While the Italians dedicated significant effort towards developing their colony, Great Britain took a more hands-off approach to governance, leaving more responsibility in the hands of local leaders but also providing less by way of infrastructure. These distinctions are often cited as underpinnings of the incompatibility that would arise between the two areas. This colonial history, in addition to other dynamics, is also seen to play a role in the subsequent, contrasting levels of stability of Somalia and Somaliland. chakabars
