Full title: Padma Lakshmi is accused of 'cultural appropriation' for wearing her hair in cornrows on basketball-themed Top Chef episode So now a hairstyle is cultural appropriation and in the liberal world that means it's racist. Can anyone here think of anything non white people have appropriated from white people? How about modern medicine, planes, guns and Microsoft Windows? Where I live, all the Italian food joints are owned by Mexicans, how will I ever recover from this insult? The left in this country is just dying to wake up everyday and find something to be offended and outraged over.
