Apparently, wearing your own culture’s clothing is a form of cultural appropriation!

Social justice warriors at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are demanding that two students of Arabic heritage be expelled from the college because they wore Arabic clothing!

Let me repeat: the “offending” students – the students who were accused of “cultural appropriation” – are of Arabic heritage and were wearing Arabic clothing.

Those two students are in the bottom right of the picture, shown below.

The social justice warriors also want everyone else in the picture expelled too.

After being told that the two students wearing Arabic clothing were themselves of Arabic descent, one of the social justice warriors who had demanded their explusion said:

“Although that story might justify on an individual level, it does not justify on a systemic level because when people see it, they don’t know that story. When they see it, they see it as a justification for wearing cultural costumes.”

Four different social justice oragnizations at the college – “Students for Justice in Palestine,” “Black Students for Revolution,” “Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan,” and “Campus Union for Trans Equality and Support” – all joined together to form a brand new social justice organization called “Not Just a Party at UIUC” (NJAP).

Apparently, it never occurred to them that the acronym “NJAP” contains a racial slur.

That they would form a brand new organization in response to some students having a party that consisted of consenting adults is absurd.

That they would demand that everyone who attended the party be expelled is also absurd.

That they would consider it “cultural appropriation” when students wear clothing from their own culture, well, that’s absurd too.
