Teach children that this is not ok

Teach children that there’s nothing wrong with this

I’m really not understanding why you think cultural appropriation would be ok, unless you are assuming that the girl in the picture is part Japanese.

Yellow face yet she’s using white makeup in the traditional style but okay.
Cultural appropriation isn’t a thing, hon. ☺️ Cultures should be shared by all means.

I disagree. The makeup is clearly reflective of traditional Geisha makeup which is yellowface and therefore racist. Furthermore, the girl is wearing a kimono, a garment that has for ages carried cultural significance. Assuming that she is white how can you think this is ok? And cultural appropriation isn’t a thing? What rock do you live under? I suggest you educate yourself on the differences between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation.

I am japanese, in japan at this very moment. The only people who think culture shouldnt be shared are racists like you. 
A vast majority of Japanese people actually enjoy other people making an effort to spread and enjoy japanese culture, and encourage it. Many make businesses in deliberately taking pictures of people in kimono. A common omiage (gift) for foreigners from japanese people is traditional japanese things such as kimonos, tea seats, shisa dog statues, ect. 
And to top it off, basically 80 percent of japanese customs, traditions, and food, came from other countries. Japanese is an integration of different cultures, like america. Japan takes influences from places like korea, china, russia, and europe. If japan stuck to itself, there would be no tempura, japanese tea, tea ceremonies, kabuki, japanese bread, japanese curry, j- pop, anime, cars, or modern fishing techniques. The picture is not “yellow face” they are not making fun of asians. In fact, it looks like they put extra care and research into their work. 
The only reason that you have a problem with this is because that little girl is white and you know that it is acceptable on tumblr to crap all over white people. The only racist here is you.

Dang she got shut down.

Damn I’ve never hit reblog so fast in my entire fucking life

Daaaaamn

Pew pew pew

I reblog this every time I see it

I live in Japan and I’d like to back up this sentiment. 
Recently a museum in Boston came under a lot of fire for allowing visitors to wear a ‘kimono’ (it was featuring a painting my Monet of a girl – a white girl – in a kimono, and the museum had replicas made that guests of ANY RACE could wear to mimic the painting, Pageant-of-the-Masters style). After protests and heated debate, the museum closed the event.
I was living in Japan at the time, and out of all the *actual* Japanese people I asked, not a single one was offended by the event. Rather, they were excited that people half a world away were showing interest in their culture, and were sad that visitors could no longer enjoy the event.
This party, though somewhat silly in application, is an attempt at experiencing and appreciating another culture. The mom who put this together is not an expert on Japan, but she did her best. She got a lot of things right: there are few things Japan loves more than tea, Pocky, and sakura. 
Where do you draw the line for who is “allowed” to learn about Japan? If the girl were of Japanese descent, would that make it ok (even though her citizenship would be the same as the girl from the photo)? If one of the girl’s parents were from Japan, then would it be ok? 
Are you only allowed to make pizza if you live in Italy? If you’re an Italian immigrant? How do we decide these things??
You can’t say you want to dismantle racism and then in the next breath make rules – based on race – for who people can wear, try, or eat, especially when the intent is obviously to have fun experiencing a culture (as opposed to having fun by making fun of a race or culture, like blackface does). 
When you tell people they can only experience things ‘meant for their race’, it totally smacks of segregation to me and I can’t stand it. As someone who (obviously) loves Japan, I say let people learn about it, let people experience it, let people appreciate it. You don’t have to know every single thing about a culture to enjoy it.



fucking people got owned is what, fuck i hate how people say you cant do shit when culture should be shared and is shared its how it grows and changes through fucking generations itS HOW YOU LEARN about the world and just fucking, tumblr fucking stupid like 70% of the dam time

this new light

FINALLY SOMETHING LIKE THIS BECOMES POPULAR OH MY FUCK

THANK YOU

To clarify: cultural appropriation is totally a thing, THIS JUST ISN’T AN EXAMPLE OF IT. 

“According to critics of the practice, cultural appropriation differs from acculturation, assimilation, or cultural exchange in that this appropriation is a form of colonialism: cultural elements are copied from a minority culture by members of a dominant culture, and these elements are used outside of their original cultural context—sometimes even against the expressly stated wishes of members of the originating culture.““Often, the original meaning of these cultural elements is lost or distorted, and such displays are often viewed as disrespectful, or even as a form of desecration, by members of the originating culture. Cultural elements which may have deep meaning to the original culture may be reduced to “exotic” fashion or toys by those from the dominant culture.”

to put in in short sentences
cultural apreciation: wearing Kimoni respectful and doing tea ceremony and just enjoying the culture by understanding and learning
cultural appropriation: sticking chop sticks in your bun while not understanding what these hairpieces you´re thinking of realy mean because you think it looks funny/neat/exotic

Japanese Tea Party Article from thegalagals Read it Throw a fun Japanese lea Party for that special little gal! the1timelady gayvetforlife lynati snapesonaplane mistermetalface jdbsmg-star henryismywaifu tinybookling littleblackchat lifeiscaulscott semiauto14 daissychainss dilfweed jennaavh madmints takesabeating cheshireinthemiddle ginzers spoopy-roxxi ginzers spoopy-roxxi ginzers Teach children that this is not ok Teach children that there’s nothing wrong with this I’m really not understanding why you think cultural appropriation would be ok unless you are assuming that the girl in the picture is part Japanese Yellow face yet she’s using white makeup in the traditional style but okay Cultural appropriation isn’t a thing hon ☺️ Cultures should be shared by all means I disagree The makeup is clearly reflective of traditional Geisha makeup which is yellowface and therefore racist Furthermore the girl is wearing a kimono a garment that has for ages carried cultural significance Assuming that she is white how can you think this is ok? And cultural appropriation isn’t a thing? What rock do you live under? I suggest you educate yourself on the differences between cultural appreciation and cultural appropriation I am japanese in japan at this very moment The only people who think culture shouldnt be shared are racists like you A vast majority of Japanese people actually enjoy other people making an effort to spread and enjoy japanese culture and encourage it Many make businesses in deliberately taking pictures of people in kimono A common omiage gift for foreigners from japanese people is traditional japanese things such as kimonos tea seats shisa dog statues ect And to top it off basically 80 percent of japanese customs traditions and food came from other countries Japanese is an integration of different cultures like america Japan takes influences from places like korea china russia and europe If japan stuck to itself there would be no tempura japanese tea tea ceremonies kabuki japanese bread japanese curry j- pop anime cars or modern fishing techniques The picture is not “yellow face” they are not making fun of asians In fact it looks like they put extra care and research into their work The only reason that you have a problem with this is because that little girl is white and you know that it is acceptable on tumblr to crap all over white people The only racist here is you Rekt b t f o Dang she got shut down Damn I’ve never hit reblog so fast in my entire fucking life Daaaaamn Pew pew pew I reblog this every time I see it I live in Japan and I’d like to back up this sentiment Recently a museum in Boston came under a lot of fire for allowing visitors to wear a ‘kimono’ it was featuring a painting my Monet of a girl – a white girl – in a kimono and the museum had replicas made that guests of ANY RACE could wear to mimic the painting Pageant-of-the-Masters style After protests and heated debate the museum closed the event I was living in Japan at the time and out of all the *actual* Japanese people I asked not a single one was offended by the event Rather they were excited that people half a world away were showing interest in their culture and were sad that visitors could no longer enjoy the event This party though somewhat silly in application is an attempt at experiencing and appreciating another culture The mom who put this together is not an expert on Japan but she did her best She got a lot of things right there are few things Japan loves more than tea Pocky and sakura Where do you draw the line for who is “allowed” to learn about Japan? If the girl were of Japanese descent would that make it ok even though her citizenship would be the same as the girl from the photo? If one of the girl’s parents were from Japan then would it be ok? Are you only allowed to make pizza if you live in Italy? If you’re an Italian immigrant? How do we decide these things?? You can’t say you want to dismantle racism and then in the next breath make rules – based on race – for who people can wear try or eat especially when the intent is obviously to have fun experiencing a culture as opposed to having fun by making fun of a race or culture like blackface does When you tell people they can only experience things ‘meant for their race’ it totally smacks of segregation to me and I can’t stand it As someone who obviously loves Japan I say let people learn about it let people experience it let people appreciate it You don’t have to know every single thing about a culture to enjoy it fucking people got owned is what fuck i hate how people say you cant do shit when culture should be shared and is shared its how it grows and changes through fucking generations itS HOW YOU LEARN about the world and just fucking tumblr fucking stupid like 70% of the dam time this new light FINALLY SOMETHING LIKE THIS BECOMES POPULAR OH MY FUCK THANK YOU To clarify cultural appropriation is totally a thing THIS JUST ISN’T AN EXAMPLE OF IT “According to critics of the practice cultural appropriation differs from acculturation assimilation or cultural exchange in that this appropriation is a form of colonialism cultural elements are copied from a minority culture by members of a dominant culture and these elements are used outside of their original cultural context—sometimes even against the expressly stated wishes of members of the originating culture““Often the original meaning of these cultural elements is lost or distorted and such displays are often viewed as disrespectful or even as a form of desecration by members of the originating culture Cultural elements which may have deep meaning to the original culture may be reduced to “exotic” fashion or toys by those from the dominant culture” to put in in short sentences cultural apreciation wearing Kimoni respectful and doing tea ceremony and just enjoying the culture by understanding and learning cultural appropriation sticking chop sticks in your bun while not understanding what these hairpieces you´re thinking of realy mean because you think it looks funnyneatexotic Meme
