Re: “Best place to ponder cultural appropriation

Who even wrote this? Some people were attacking this shop for selling dream catchers during their opening, only to be hushed when the young man who makes them affirmed that he is, in fact, Native American. What is it with Durham thinking it's so much cooler than everyone else these days? The people who care about and hold cultural capital in this town practically advertise their racism and end up being praised for how "interesting" they are. My theory is that this particular phase of Durham's identity as an "up and coming" (gentrifying) city has thrown at least a portion of our local culture into an ugly adolescence with all this talk about what's in and what's new and where's the best place to eat or the tallest roof to see and be seen etc. And that means the "Durham cool crowd" (which as far as I can see is largely comprised of waify hipsters who descended on Durham in the past 7 years from places like Los Angeles) and even professional writers start tripping like they're the mean girls in high school. Definitely NOT flattering when you're anywhere near 40. Go home, Regina, and practice your thinking skills.
