Culture Wars & Appropriation 

I understand the power imbalance of different groups, I get it, but I also support and encourage creativity, imagination and the power of storytelling. These traits belong to all humans, and I am of the opinion that we have evolved as a species through the borrowing, bartering and yes, the bastardization of cultural and social ‘aartifacts’.   If you are offended by something written, painted, said, etc., you have the right, and a myriad of forums to offer your reaction.  I have the right, and the forums to provide my perspective as well.
