JTOL0007 The Hypocrisy of Cultural Appropriation

00:00 /

HYPOCRISY: Hypocrisy is the contrivance of a false appearance of virtue or goodness, while concealing real character or inclinations, especially with respect to religious and moral beliefs hence in general sense, dissimulation, pretense, sham. Hypocrisy is the practice of engaging in the same behavior or activity for which one criticizes another. In moral psychology, it is the failure to follow one’s own expressed moral rules and principles.[1] Lammers, Joris (2011), From Wikipedia

Hi there!! Just adding my voice.

What are your thoughts on cultural appropriation, regardless of its logical shortcomings in terms of “stealing”?

Thanks for watching! I was sick this day and had to reshoot many times.
