Culture Appropriation

On The Philosopher’s Table on CFRC 101.9fm in Kingston I talked about Culture Appropriation because Halloween is coming this weekend and sometimes some halloween costumes are politically incorrect such as Pocahotas. That costumes does represent a disney princess but it also poorly represents the Indigenous culture as a whole because they do not wear that sort of clothing in real life. They wear clothing like the rest of the population. Culture Appropriation is an issue that needs to be resolved.

Here is an audio link to yesterday’s episode where I talk about this issue and brush the surface about why this issue is a big deal.
