stupideuphony asked: This might sound like a very dumb question but if someone is not from a latinx, hispanic, or otherwise POC heritage/country is it still alright for them to appreciate and want to learn about laitnx, hispanic, and POC cultures? There seems to be a very big bias against white people wanting to learn about other non white cultures. (Again, I'm very sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but im generally curious.) thank you.


It’s not a dumb question. It’s alright for white people to appreciate and want to learn about our culture and history. There is a bias because in many circumstances our culture becomes appropriated instead of just appreciated. There is a thin line between the two but it doesn’t take much more than common sense to realize what’s appropriation and what isn’t.

next time you hear a white person say “well if black people can say the n-word why can’t i???” you should ask them “why do you want to?” and listen as they try not to say “black people have something of their own that I am not entitled to and that hurts my feelings and makes me feel inferior”
