Clothing:

I know most people have heard of a sari, well a lappa is very similar. The use of prints & a long drape of fabric is prevalent in both cultures. The necklines and shapes are very similar as well. It’s basically the same clothes in a different font. Clothing:

With that being said, do your research before you shout appropriation at Black folks. Factor in the systematic oppression of traditional African culture (except a whitewashed Egypt). Our culture wasn’t taught, romanticized, or shown in the same ways as everyone else’s.

The reason why we see Black people doing certain things & automatically think its Asian, is because Asian culture was deemed more socially acceptable by European standards. Thus media shows Asian culture WAY more than African culture. This ties into colorism & Asian privilege.

Meditation/Spiritual Practices:

Hinduism & Buddhism in Africa began in early 1st millennium AD when there was trade between East Africa and Indian subcontinent. Generations of Asians & Africans share these practices. Let Black ppl align they chakras in peace like we been doing.

Head Ornaments:

I see people scream appropriation when Black ppl wear head ornaments, stop that. 🙃 Also stop calling them bindi’s on Black people, that term is native to the Indian subcontinent.

Hair Styles:

I started with this one bc this is the only comparison that Asians are accused of appropriating more than Black people (almost). From braids to gravity defying styles, Africans & Asians share many similar culturally derived hairstyles.
