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.
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.
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.
4. A brand will continue to benefit from the ad via sales making hundreds, if not thousands. But once the influencer received the product thats the end of the benefits for them. So brand continues to profit off the ad while the influencers got 0 dollars... but hey nice gift 🙃
5. “High quality content and access to an influencers large, dedicated audience comes at a price. For many influencers, creating content is their full time job. And they’ve worked for years perfecting their craft and building a following.”
