    It's the only way to make rugby interesting.

    Cultural appropriation is an invention of the loony snowflake generation and does not exist.

    Load of shite
    Why the fuck do the oppo have to stand and watch? I would turn my back on it
  8. I think they look like a complete bunch of fannies. Just saying like.:rolleyes:
  9. Well I’m not sure. But I was thinking of that lass who got lamblasted (sic) for wearing a Chinese dress to her prom a while back or someone who got shouted at for putting cornrows in her hair, and I was watching a load of white blokes doing a Maori dance just there and wondered how they can get away with it when others can’t.

    (For the record, I don’t think my two examples are cultural appropriation)

  11. Is it cultural appropriation when a man of Asian heritage runs my local fish and chip shop? Think it's all a load of bollocks myself like, like people having a go at Jamie Oliver for doing a cookbook with recipes from Jamaica or whatever, madness to criticise stuff like that when there's actual racism around

    Celebration of a nations cultural heritage surely.
  13. I agree with you, although the Jamie Oliver thing I get because he’s not just made some Jamaican recipes, he’s made up some recipes that aren’t actually Jamaican at all, and then called them Jamaican to cash in on Jamaicanness.

    Pisses me off that they are allowed to do it.

    It’s only a recent thing

  16. It’s celebration of a heritage that isn’t theirs, isn’t it? There’s only about half the team who can claim it’s their heritage by the looks of things.

    For the record, I think cultural appropriation is used as an excuse for a load of shit, but the point I’m making is that if people use it for stuff like prom dresses and hairstyles then how is the Haka not??

    This. We should make summat up and just do it in response. Or turn our backs (I know it’s been done before but I don’t see why we have to “respect” it).

    Out of respect and basic manners I would guess.

  20. We should make one up and make them watch us then. Why is it only one way?
