The Cultural Appropriation Crusade Has Turned Into A Crime Against Humanity
By Julienne Davis, Heat Street
Leftists and indigenous activists have cranked up the cultural appropriation issue to eleven by taking their grievances to the United Nations.
Always searching for new conflicts to be upset about, they now want cultural appropriation to be made a globally enforced criminal offense.
One of the people spearheading this is James Anaya—dean of the University of Colorado Law School, who insisted that the final UN document should: “obligate states to create effective criminal and civil enforcement procedures to recognize and prevent the non-consensual taking and illegitimate possession, sale and export of traditional cultural expressions.”
It seems the Left’s “celebration of multi-culturalism” is no longer cool. Instead they condemn the idea and instead call it “cultural appropriation.”
