By now, you’ve heard the internet’s tectonic plates shifting again. This week, the fault line is Bruno Mars. On one side of the divide, you have people asserting that Bruno Mars is, as a non-black performer excelling at creating traditionally black art, a cultural appropriator. On the other side—a side that seems much bigger today—are Bruno supporters who believe he’s done no wrong.
Bruno is being targeted by a mob of angry black haters. Sensei Aishtemasu, the outspoken writer/YouTuber/activist/feminis who made her opinion of Bruno Mars explicitly clear in the viral clip shared online last week, was faced with a 7-day suspension from Twitter when Bruno Mars’ stans reported her en masse in retaliation.
You can see the idiot complaining about Cultural Appropriation here.
Cultural appropriation is a lie like feminism. It is nonsense.
But who is this SJW? Who is this stupid feminist? She calls herself Sensei Aishtemasu and she has the gall to accuse Bruno Mars of cultural appropriation. Well, she is black and is not Japanese. Cultural appropriation? This is laughable coming from some who refers to herself as “Sensei”, which is Japanese for teacher or master; Hypocrisy at its finest. Furthermore, she has no clue as to what Bruno Mars’ genetic make up is. His dad is Puerto Rican and a large part of the P.R. population definitely has African ancestry (not that any of that really matters). Good music is good music.
So, basketball, baseball, hockey, tennis, golf, etc.. should have stayed all white for white people to enjoy? Pizza just for Italians? Darius Rucker should not be allowed to sing Wagon Wheel (written by Bob Dylan) and play country music? What if these rules applied and Jimmy Hendrix was not allowed to play rock? Or Tiger Woods was not allowed to compete in golf? Jordan in basketball? Jackie Robinson? Arthur Ashe? These athletes and many others are appreciated by both whites and all other races cause of the way they performed. Should white people look down on black people for the many cultures whites started in this country and others? No matter what your skin color, why stop someone from creating/improving any culture?
This Sensie is obviously racist. Just because your race creates a certain genre in music, does not mean it’s off limits to all others. Yet, it’s ok for all other races to listen, dance and buy the rap, hip hop, R & B music for the black africans to benefit. An example how white and other non-black races are more widely accepting, look at the music/movie/sport industry. May be generalizing here but from what I’ve seen over the years, it seems most black people may only listen to black music, see mostly black movies or wear jerseys of black athletes. Yet, whites and other racial groups are far more accepting to listen to black music, watch black movies and wear black athlete’s sportswear. Why is this? Time to stop making everything so racial and separating your race from others.
