American Dirtbag

So an American White Woman culturally appropriated a Mexican immigrant woman’s story and all hell has broken loose! Oprah’s endorsement of the book is problematic for her given the fact that she is neither Mexican nor an immigrant. That said Selma Hayek is both and she endorsed the book even before reading it! Which makes zero sense but that’s what Hollywood folks do.

Shakespeare wrote about a Prince of Denmark and a Jewish Shylock and he was neither! Was he a British Dirtbag or is this entire conversation about cultural appropriation ridiculous? And that is all I’m going to say about that!
