The cultural appropriation police are out in full force in Portland, Oregon and they mobbed a couple of white women because they dared to sell non-white ethnic food… burritos!
The women had gone to Mexico to learn from the best of the best and they were accused of ‘stealing’ intellectual property.
“These two white women went to Mexico, ate tacos, and then decided they would just take what the locals clearly didn’t want to give them. If that wasn’t bad enough, they decided to pack up all their stolen intellectual property and repackage it in one of the few places where such a business could plausibly work: Portland, Oregon.” Said the socialist nutcase rag that seems worse than the Daily Kos, the Portland Mercury.
The Daily Wire reports:
Getting a whiff of Wilgus and Connelly’s process of creating tortilla recipes, leftist outlets like Mic.com and The Portland Mercury pounced: painting the female entrepreneurs contributing to society as racist, sticky-fingered villains.
“Because of Portland’s underlying racism, the people who rightly own these traditions and cultures that exist are already treated poorly. These appropriating businesses are erasing and exploiting their already marginalized identities for the purpose of profit and praise,” accused The Portland Mercury.
“People of color are nothing more than an afterthought when the white perpetrators of this tradition continue to do this on a regular basis. While Portland is supposedly a progressive place, super liberal white people usually only have other super white liberal people to answer to — which means this cycle of cultural appropriation will never end until people of color call attention to it,” the piece continued.
Soon after, the business was forced into closing its doors, and its online presence has all but disappeared. The Portland Mercury called the closure a “victory.”
Imagine that. That exact same rag accused ‘Portland’ of racism. The bastion of liberalism.
It proves that liberals cannot compare the great United States with other societies and cultures and see how wonderful it is. They can only compare to the socialist perfect utopia they have created in their minds and nothing will ever measure up. They live in a permanent state of “everything is unfair”.
Here is why the Portland Mercury feels that ‘Portland’ is racist:
“People of color are nothing more than an afterthought when the white perpetrators of this tradition continue to do this on a regular basis. While Portland is supposedly a progressive place, super liberal white people usually only have other super white liberal people to answer to—which means this cycle of cultural appropriation will never end until people of color call attention to it.”
For those that do not know, Cultural appropriation is the adoption or use of the elements of one culture by members of another culture. Liberals consider it stealing. If you dare tweek what you stole, that is a bigger offense! Cultural appropriation can include using other cultures’ traditions, fashion, symbols, language, and cultural songs “without permission”.
I am not quite sure who these women were supposed to ask permission, but because they ‘stole’ how to make an awesome tortilla and burrito, liberals drove them out of business. Think about that folks. This is the road we are going down.
