Marginalized folks are punished for their cultural markers, appropriators are rewarded for using other folk’s cultural markers.
It really doesn’t even matter WHAT the thing is being appropriated, it’s really about appropriating as a means of reinforcing the power structure about WHO is allowed to take and WHO is expected to be taken from.
Soooo Janelle Monae covered David Bowie.

If you had a time machine, there is one particular event that you would love to go back and redo or undo. This is something that has probably been on your mind a lot lately. You may think it has altered your future and changed your fate. Maybe it has, but that does not mean that it has changed it for the worst. Maybe what happened back then changed your fate for the better, and you just don’t know it yet. Let the past stay in the past, Scorpio. Move forward by forgiving yourself and by looking forward to a bright future.”
Really tryna live by this, not be so hard on myself. Forgiveness. Vision. Future-and-present-focus. Past-honoring. Clarity.
