India: Not a Prop Bag

July 11, 2012

India: Not a Prop Bag

This blog is NOT intended for any India cultural appreciation tourists. Seek your fix for upper-caste, light-skinned Bollywood love elsewhere.

This blog is NOT intended to showcase the “vibrancy” and “colorfulness” of Indian people. Seek your nonsensical, colonial exotification elsewhere.

This blog is NOT intended for educational purposes. That takes some effort and no one is paying me to do this. (I will however write down my thoughts on cultural appropriation soon enough. It is coming.)

However.

This blog IS intended to shame westerners and attempt to train a philips tubelight on all that ugly commodification of people and culture.

This blog IS intended to smash white savior-dom in the face until it bleeds, cries and whimpers away.

This blog IS intended to shame exotification and neo-colonialist assholery.

Be warned — I do hate on whiteness a lot.

Heavily Inspired by Africans Against Appropriation (which I blogged about earlier here).
