Re: “Appropriation, Vacation

They are preppy "white" guys who play music inspired by non-white folks.

As a person of color, I read this review and think "Wow. Jessica Hopper is white, thinks the entire world is white, is writing for a primarily white audience and I don't fit into this conversation as a person of color."

If I interpret the logic of this article, it tells me that it's only OK for me to sing in Spanish because I'm Mexican...but it might be OK to sing in English because it is just assumed I know it.

This conversation is crazy and makes me sad.
