I got an email the other day that had a youtube link to "The Appropriation of Cultures" by
It is a fictional short story about a young black man that
buys a pick-up truck with the confederate flag on the back. In the story
he drives around and gradually undermines the flag by making it so
popular that it loses it's meaning. That was my take anyway. Yours may be
Here are a couple links if you want to listen to it being read or if you want to read it.
The reading of the story HERE and the text of it HERE.
Go listen to it or read it. Think about the context of it, not the outcome.
Now think about the following:
( Bear with me I'm not an english major. I don't review stories and read into deep hidden
meanings into what the author really meant. Like SCOTUS does)
"WE" , in the following statements, are the people that see and
understand what is happening in this country and the direction that "the
powers that be" are trying force us)
What if we all flew rainbow flags or put rainbow stickers on our cars?
What if we all use the gender neutral bathrooms?
What if we all bought and wore Che T-shirts?
What if we all bought and wore Black Power T-shirts?
What if we all greeted our friends with "What up n****r?" ?
If someone asked "How are you?" say "Gayer than a tree full of chickadees!"
What if we filled out forms and put something other than your true race, or sex?
If questioned just say that's how you identify. Tell them to disprove it.
As in the fictional story that started this, imagine the outcome if everyone was doing some
of the above and it just became so common that it loses it's meaning?
You can add more ideas in the comments if you want.
I need more coffee.
