Real Mexicans love when people "appropriate" our culture. What annoys me is outrage appropriation. Don't be offended for me, stop treating us like children, that is actually racist imo. source - am Mexican Edit: lmao ty for the gold

An Asian caricature of an Italian plumber dresses like a Mexican, and white people get offended. Isn't there a crazy pills meme for stuff like this?

Same shit happened with Speedy Gonzales

White people only say this because they're so afraid of being racist that they have to call out anything that might be somewhat racist but really isn't.

I’m gonna play devils advocate here, but i really don’t think many people were upset at the Mario Odyssey sombrero thing. Like yeah a token few tumblr users were upset but like, this depiction was as fun lighthearted and inoffensive as you can get. I really don’t think anyone was upset.

if anything is racist, it is Mario...He's a stereotypical Italian caricature

I have seen about 500 posts making fun of people who say this is racist, and precisely 0 people actually saying it is racist.

This reminds me of when Speedy Gonzales was removed from Cartoon Network for being perceived as racist only for them to bring it back when Hispanic people complained about it's removal.

I think people get appropriation mixed up with appreciation. I see a major issue of some part of your culture or heritage is made fun of or not accepted unless a white person does it too. But if people are supportive and want to partake in another culture without ostracizing it first, it’s fine and should be encouraged because it’s also empowering.
