No, absolutely not. You might offend someone by cooking their national dish 'wrong' but 'offend' in that case just means 'slightly annoy'. Unless they're italian, in which case you'll never hear the fucking end of it.

I'm not particularly convinced cultural appropriation is anything other than blackface or literally pretending you're from somewhere you're not (I'm including all the americans who tell me they're irish here)

The point of food, art, music, dance, and all other parts of a culture should surely be to be freely shared and practiced with anyone, rather than keeping it segregated and telling people they're 'not allowed' to make rice and beans or play a zither or do flamenco if they're not from the place it originates. What a fucking boring world to live in, that you can't be influenced or inspired or even just able to replicate something wonderful you've discovered from a distant land, or more accurately in this day and age, your neighbour three doors down.

Fuck anyone who thinks otherwise. This is the closest I'll ever get to defending Jamie Oliver.

Broadly agree, but I think there are also more subtle iterations of what you might call 'cultural appropriation' (though can't say I really like the term) that are valid.

I think problems arise a) when someone profits massively from something specific that they did not invent, or to take something from a culture they do not belong to, particularly if they monopolise it and prevent anyone from the original culture doing so, b) when someone deliberately cheapens the culture they're taking from for the sake of mass marketing (this actually gets on my tits, it's a long and ugly road from ingeniously simple peasant food to Mars Incorporated asking you 'whensa your Dolmio day?'), c) when a culture has been so close to eradicated that any further 'borrowing' by more pervasive cultures risks destroying or permanently distorting the original altogether, as with indigenous Americans.

Obviously, these things really need to be taken on a case by case basis. I suppose what I'm getting at is, while the ideal you're expressing is absolutely correct -- human cultures borrow from one another and develop the same ideas in different ways, and always have -- there are still considerations to be made when you introduce real world politics and power. Sometimes things can be distasteful but morally acceptable, or vice versa.

I think you're spot on and I don't really disagree at all with that. Perhaps I was a bit too dramatic in my post to get that across, but you're fully right when you say it should be on a case-by-case basis.

The recent E3 thing was a perfect example. Sony got a white bloke to play japanese flute at the conference, and people were calling that appropriation. The defendants of it pointed out said white bloke was one of the only masters of the instrument alive today, and had dedicated much of his life to the craft, white or not. But either way I think the appropriation comes from a huge corporation using a niche cultural art to sell their video games. It doesn't particularity matter that Sony is a japanese company, they're still using something quite interesting and beautiful and using it to grease their infernal industrial cogs.

I feel the same way whenever UK companies exploit whatever might be left of our culture.

A traditional ragu alla Bolognese is served with tagliatelle, is a relatively dry sauce and is usually made with a mix of meats. Spaghetti Bolognese was adapted for English tastes and the limited availability of Italian ingredients back in the 70s.

Spag Bol is not even really italian to start with, so by pointing that out you've sort of short yourself in the foot.

There's something insidious about the 'proper' way to make any italian food, that somehow even manages to surpass the French. A frenchman might have an opinion on the best way to make Beef Bourginon, but he understands that even within his own country there is more than one way to make it. Italians for some reason love to shout at you about how IT'S NOT CARBONARA IF YOU PUT GARLIC IN IT! Which is just a little bit silly, especially when it's said the way that an italian grandma says it, with such christ-powered malice and conviction.

I understand that there is cause to be annoyed when someone puts cream in carbonara or nestles a dollop of sauce on top of plain, soft spaghetti but the sheer exacting traditionalism of following 'THE' recipe is mental, particularly when every italian has their own recipe anyway, and obviously theirs is the only correct one.

I had to hear this shite quite often from an italian cook who I used to work with, so maybe I'm just fed up of it because of her (probably, tbh). Eventually I got sick of it and couldn't wait for every Sunday to roll around so I could criticise her Yorkshire puds. "no no, this is not a Yorkshire! This is a cake! My grandmother is rolling in her grave!" and all the shit I'd hear from her if I dared look at a meatball the wrong way.

I didn't really notice this post becoming a rant, but there you go. Blame Stefania.

That has nothing to do with cultural appropriation then, that is you considering something to be somehow sacred. You are just the millennial equivalent of old people complaining about shops being open on Sunday. Come to think of it most cultural appropriation arguments are.

Shit like this puts me in mind of the thing about language evolving. Every time you moan about some silly word the young 'uns are using nowadays some smart arse points out how language evolves and that's just a new meaning for the word etc- 99% of people recognise that creamy, cheesy ham and mushroom sauce to be what carbonara means. So that's what a carbonara is.

I feel a similar way about the treatment Disney films and other general Hollywood rubbish gives to traditional fairy tales and folklore.

I can hardly exactly say I find it offensive, but you just know there are plenty of sheltered Yanks out there who literally think that's what European history was like. Then they come to visit the real place and expect the continent to basically be a theme park full of majestic castles and unspoiled forest.

I suspect that even the best curry in the world would taste decidedly 'council' mixed with pasta, let alone Patak's.

I've seen a housemate years ago regularly make a similarly themed stir fry. It was diced chicken breast that she seemed to cook for about 20 minutes in the pan, a bag of beansprouts, some frozen 'stir fry veg mix' and about half a litre of chip shop curry sauce.

Smelled great obviously, but I never dared try it.

The sensation of heat in the mouth releases endorphins in the body, which as I'm sure you know is something a lot of people enjoy.

Also, different chillis do add lots of flavour, but you don't tend to notice it until you build up tolerance. One of my favourite snacks is just whole raw Birdseye chillies. It was something an Indian lad I worked with used to do all the time so I appropriated it off him. Chillies taste fantastic though, I think.

>The chef and entrepreneur Levi Roots has described Jamie Oliver’s decision to launch a jerk rice dish as a mistake, as a row over cultural appropriation widened.

>Oliver was called out on the product by the shadow equalities minister, Dawn Butler, the daughter of Jamaican immigrants, who questioned whether the chef knew what jerk was. His “punchy” jerk rice dish contains garlic, ginger and jalapeños, whereas traditional jerk seasoning – which was developed by escaped African slaves on the Caribbean island – relies principally on two ingredients: allspice and scotch bonnet peppers.

>During his appearance on ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Monday, Roots said he had already shown Oliver how to make “the real deal” jerk chicken during a segment for Oliver’s YouTube channel filmed several years ago. Roots said: “I do think it was a mistake by Jamie – either by him or by his team. Maybe he wasn’t actually involved in this,” he said.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/aug/20/jamie-olivers-jerk-rice-dish-a-mistake-says-jamaica-born-chef

Yet if you look at the recipe for what Oliver and Roots cooked together:

>3 cm piece fresh ginger , peeled
>2 spring onions , trimmed and finely sliced
>1 jalapeno chilli , finely sliced

https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/chicken-recipes/levi-roots-stylee-jerk-chicken-jalapeno-breads/

Remember, kids. Calling a recipe 'jerk' even if it includes untraditional ingredients is fine if Levi Roots stands to gain from it. Calling a recipe 'jerk' with untraditional ingredients if Levi Roots doesn't stand to gain from it is a 'mistake'.

Oh my days. Pimento isn't a spice. Pimento is a pepper. Have a word with yourself, lad. You watch a Levi Roots video and all of a sudden you're an expert on Jamaican cuisine. Seriously, you need to sort yourself out. Using Levi Roots as your go-to Jamaican, just like using David Baddiel as your go-to Jew for all matters anti-Semitic. It's bad enough referring to him as West Indian; calling them Indians is derogatory to the extreme. I bet you call Native Americans 'Red Indians' too, you're that backwards.

Everyone has a mix of features we perceive as masculine and feminine, I suppose. Throw in race as a factor, where we may be less familiar, and you get those kind of perceptions.

Reminds me a bit of how people aren't as good at guessing age outside their own race (or at least, the race of the people they see the most), because we don't have as much of mental bank of the more subtle features to draw from.

Apparently Gordon Ramsay's new show is racist because he's going around the globe learning about various styles of cooking before competing with a local chef to make one of their speciality dishes.

I give it a few days before someone complains about the lack of black contestants in this year's Bake Off.

Not only okay, but an actual complement. If somebody is trying to copy another culture, like the Dolmio shit, than It's a direct compliment to the host of the culture that people are trying to mimic your shit. Even if they do it badly.

It's easier to see on the full image. The upper part of her septum is slightly concave and doesn't match the natural line of her bridge and eye socket. It's a classic sign of a slightly overzealous rhinoplasty.

It seems a strange standard to hold him to really. Blackface wasn't considered racist at the time he wasn't doing it to be racist, and the American black community of the time considered him something of a hero for doing it. If anything it throws doubt on taking such an arbitrary stance on the matter (blackface=racism). I'm certainly not about to protest for my right to black face, but in his time blackface could be used as a device to draw attention to black social causes rather than just to ridicule them.

Of course I doubt you can deliver the history lesson necessary to everyone to make them appreciate what he was doing and the virtues of blackface, and I doubt there is anyone who has investment in making that case.

There's a reasonable case to be made that Jolson's blackface performances were well-intentioned and helped introduce segregated white audiences to black culture, but it's absolutely clear that blackface is unacceptable today. In a modern context, adopting someone else's racial identity for entertainment is blatantly disrespectful and implicitly racist.

The arguments over Jamie Oliver's rice seem a bit silly, but they differ from blackface in degree rather than type. Calling something "jerk" that is nothing of the sort implies a casual disregard for Jamaican culture.

I find this image to be profoundly irritating, and I haven't suffered from the legacy of centuries of slavery and oppression. While I have no time for people who want to get offended on someone else's behalf, I'm willing to extend the benefit of the doubt to anyone who says that their own culture is being disrespected.

I agree with most of your post but this conclusion I consider to be the path to madness. It is built on the premise that the individual shouldn't making a judgement for themselves on events they have not directly experienced themselves but defer to others. (Stop me if you feel that is a strawman but I think that is a fair analysis).

It invites two villains into a Diarchy, the terminally offended, whose victim complex means they can infer and construct a narrative of discrimination out of nearly anything. And the cultural apologist, who will insist that we not hold others to the stands that we hold ourselves.

Both have been on the rise in strength lately in the public arena, and I think it is the willingness to defer our own judgement and take their word that has empowered them.

I don't think we have to bow to the whims of the loudest and unreasonable voices, but I think we should at least listen when people respectfully say "this is hurtful to me". I don't think I am qualified to make a judgement on many things. I don't know what it's like to be a woman or an ethnic minority. I've only experienced life through the prism of being a straight-ish white man. My world view is blinkered in all sorts of ways that are imperceptible to me.

I do know that many people who talk about people like me often get it badly wrong. I know that when I read about my own industry in the newspaper, it's usually uninformed bollocks. I see all sorts of people talking absolute shite on social media about stuff that I'm a bit of an expert on. I try to remain open to the possibility that my opinions of stuff I'm not massively well informed about might be equally wrong. On a huge range of social and cultural issues, I just don't have the background knowledge to say anything with any degree of confidence.

It's just one little symptom of a huge problem.
In the present day there are a great number of forces, some intentional and some not, moving to re-write, censor or forget history. And a the main thrust of that is to re-frame everything in black-and-white (sorry) terms. And part of this is just simple human nature.
Every historical figure is now evil or a saint. Few people seem able or willing to comprehend that other people could be capable of both good and bad actions, just as few people are willing to believe that they themselves could be capable of doing evil were they to find themselves in the same situation.

Yes it is, and racism is okay, for as long as It's funny enough, and the audience has a sense of humor. The problem is when there hyper sensitive types who can't take a joke. The film is relevant, I'd recommend it, for as long as you can laugh at the piss taking of a sub section of white Western culture.

>I haven't suffered from the legacy of centuries of slavery and oppression

Chances are historically, your race/ethnicity has at at least one point in time. Why don't we see the Irish or the Scottish complaining about oppression I wonder, their historic slavery is hardly a secret. Everyone has seen Brave Heart right? You don't see them throwing on a teary at the existence of Willy in the Simpsons being a cliche Scotsman.

The truth is, the real oppression hasn't really been between races throughout history, It has been between the wealthy and powerful minority, and the poverty stricken toothless majority. I feel like people are slowly trying to re-write history to "white/men=bad". If people start believing that trollop, it won't end well. We don't need to give white people collectively a reason to feel scared or angry. And let's not assume that the lives of white men are necessarily better than other sexes and races. What happened to human beings laughing to themselves, fuck me.

The problem with race is that the civil war is a defining part of the story of America's creation as a nation. They're never going to get over it, it would be like asking us to get over not liking the French, or telling the Germans they're allowed to be militaristic again.
Can't shake the feeling America is exporting their shit race relations to the rest of the English-speaking world. I always get the impression that there's a big undertone of that when you see British discussion of race, that there's more outrage over George Wallace than Enoch Powell. People getting angry about colonialism, statues of Rhodes, whatever - fair enough, I mean, we actually did that, that's our history of doing not very nice things.

I think the point he's making is that Hollywood spent decades producing overtly racist propaganda, depicting black people as essentially subhuman. The grinning picaninnies, the cannibals with bones through their noses, the docile house negroes. Hollywood wasn't merely passively portraying the attitudes of the time, but playing an active role in perpetuating racist attitudes and justifying the worst excesses of a systematically racist society. Any discussion of how the media portrays race can only be meaningful if it's informed by that context.

For a person talking about informed context you don’t seem to know the context of what you are talking about.
That has literally nothing to do with Africans, that is a portrayal of the people of Papua New Guinea. And It is accurate, it was certainly accurate in the 1940s and 50s when that portrayal was most prevalent after exposure to them by Americans from the second world war, The gentlemen in the picture is described by Wikipedia as “a resident of Boga-Boga” a description I'm sure you would presume to be racist.
There is a disease called Kuru that caused an epidemic in the late 50s in Papua New Guinea, it is spread by eating the brains of the infected, I presume that is explanatory enough.

I’m sure ignorant racists started twisting it into an attack on the black people of America, and the black people of America now presume it is an attack on them, so you can hardly be blamed for being swept along by the idea it is an attack on them.

It is weird for us to accept in the west because it seems like ancient history to us, or at least something of the times of Magellan but there are still Stone Age societies in the world, in Asia, the Americas and Africa. And In the early 20th century there were a lot of them, there obviously was a lot of racial prejudice at the time but the idea of the tribesman shaking a spear and chasing off outsiders isn’t some racist propaganda, it is something that still happens.

I love the Sentinelese. Before I found out about them I had this basically modernist idea of history - we're the advanced civilisation, we need to spread civilisation across the universe because it's oh-so-great, throw everything at technology, etc. Then I got pessimistic after the crash when a lot of the economic changes I thought would happen didn't. So at the lowest point of being unhappy at history not returning to the path it ought to be on, I find out they exist, and every time we've tried to contact them to so much as show them our civilisation they've told us to fuck off. I like that, even if I'm projecting an informed choice onto them when really they're probably just afraid we're going to kidnap and kill them (as the British Empire did once) again. Still, it raised a lot of interesting questions about progress as an idea. Would we really be any closer to the future if we gave them an Instagram?

An interesting article on the subject matter in full here:

http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/black-kids-suffer-most-from-the-victim-narrative/21739

"Do you think Jamie Oliver’s jerk rice is something that is worth a senior MP spending her time on?

Tony Sewell: No, it isn’t and I’m trying to understand why she ran with this. I have no personal beef with Dawn Butler – it seems that nobody has a sense of the right priorities, even when it comes to racism. But her comments came at the same time as London is experiencing a crime wave and young black men are being killed by other young black men. She has no answers for this. Labour has no answers and nor does the government. Instead, the target becomes Jamie Oliver with his microwaved rice, which is bizarre."

Personal responsibility isn't actionable on a political or societal level. A government can fix poverty or underfunded schools, it can provide good antenatal care and parenting support, it can financially incentivise marriage, but it doesn't have many levers it can pull to force people to pull themselves up by their bootstraps.

"People should take responsibility for themselves" sounds perfectly plausible, but it's politically nihilistic. It's functionally equivalent to "this isn't our responsibility, just sort yourselves out". Appeals to personal responsibility are often just an abrogation of social responsibility. It's an easy way to avoid hard questions about systematic disadvantage. This person is doing alright, therefore all people like them have no excuse. It ignores the fact that many people have the odds stacked against them, for reasons entirely beyond their control.

Otherlad here, if you read the post closely, it's about the limitations of government. People are indeed responsible for carrying a knife if they choose to. The point is that the most that government can achieve is to make the circumstances in which people carry knives less likely. Often you find people in positions of political power using personal responsibility as a scapegoat for not making the efforts they could toward shaping those circumstances (indeed often making decisions that will worsen them).

We're in the midst of a vast obesity epidemic; by some estimates, obesity is now the leading cause of preventable disease and premature death in the developed world. It's an issue that affects every part of society. We could just say "stop eating pies, you fat bastards" and in a sense we'd be correct to do so, but that's not particularly useful. We look at the root causes of obesity and try to steer society in a way that might reduce the rate of obesity. We teach healthy eating in schools, we tax sugary soft drinks, we ban the advertising of junk food to kids, we incentivise food manufacturers to make their products less fattening, we provide weight loss support on the NHS.

If you carry a knife, you're criminally culpable for that decision. That doesn't mean our response should start and end with arrests and prosecutions. If we're serious about reducing knife crime, we need to look at the root causes and make interventions that dissuade young people from carrying knives. We need to keep asking why, we need to experiment with interventions and stick with what works, we need an open mind as to what interventions might work.

Glasgow made it quite clear that stop and search works; a heavy crackdown and zero tolerance response in the early days was pivotal to reducing knife crime there.

Glasgow isn't London though, you can prioritise searching chavs/spides/neds or whatever you call them and nobody would really call you out. Not so for black teens is it?

If we follow the good doctor's logic further surely we should put solving knife crime among young black men on the back burner and prioritise the far more serious threat to society by tackling the obesity epidemic.

Significantly more people die from obesity then knife crime by a long way, we just accept it because it is normalised. If the news reported every time someone died 15+ years younger than they should because of being fat there would be moral panic.

It's probably because there aren't gangs of feral youths going around forcing Mars bars down people's throats.

Well you can make it sound just as awful by picking emotionally charged language and focus,

'Mr. Tubbs needlessly died today of a calorie overdose at age of 55, leaving 2 children; 5, and 10, without a father, doctors say the death could have easily been prevented by regular exercise, and balanced diet "it is a tragedy when this kind of thing happens, it is always the children that suffer the most and needlessly" said doctor fake name.

Mr Tubbs had been warned by doctors of the dangers of his life style but refused to change, instead turning to internet fringe groups that promote the idea that excess body weight has no effect on health and should be embraced as beautiful "this is a dangerous phenomenon in our society that leads to needless deaths we must do everything in our power to stop the misinformation that being obese is acceptable and risk free life choice, it isn’t" said doctor fake name.'

It's a good point but it still sounds better than kids pointing guns at each other, and you know it.

You could fill all but the largest of Premiership football stadiums with the number of yearly deaths linked to being overweight. There'd be empty seats on a large sofa if you're relying on shot kids to sit on it.

There's still more empathy points directed towards the dead kid sofa than the fat cunt stadium.

I don't expect anyone to call my inevitable heart attack a tragedy. It's entirely my fault, or maybe McDonald's and cocaine's fault, but still.

It's this sort of thing that really dilutes the actual positive work being done in the name of equality.

I suggest renaming it the Ladies Sandwich and putting 20% less filling in it

I love how they managed to sneak some advertising for the product into their statement to the press.

Waitrose called it Gentlemen's Smoked Chicken Caesar Roll because it contains gentlemen's relish, or at least Heston's take on it, rather than because they were aiming it at men.

Then the noise is even more stupid. Even if a sandwich were marketed at men it'd be no more sexist than having different shaving razors marketed to men and women.

I realise I'm preaching to the choir here guys, sorry. I'm just a bit flabbergasted - unless that twitter account is a troll account in which case well done them they got me to bite.
