Intellectual Appropriation

A Factual Refutation

The term “ghetto” does not connote relation to black people. The term originated in Italy during the seventeenth century, and had nothing to do with skin color.

The term “ghetto” refers to an area segregated and usually impoverished monetarily. So for black people to take offense to the term is almost a way of disparaging oneself.
And braids are not exclusive to blacks.

Nordic men, women, and children have a history of various braids. Also Celtic culture, as well as Greek culture all have a rich history of braiding. This disqualifies it from being logically considered “appropriation”

I’m not sure if it’s self entitlement, arrogance, or just malevolence but people were bullying this woman for wearing braids and I don’t understand what their rationale is. If any at all. For a people that constantly claim to be the strongest spiritually and mentally, they sure do get offended quite easily.
