    I see both sides. To my white ass, I think that cultural appropriation is generally poorly done and if done in a manner which is purposely disrespectful, there is a real problem. But both the Canucks logo and Holtby's mask were intended as a celebration of culture. Should the creator have contacted native people to ensure authenticity? Probably. But should we make a big deal out of it? Given the context, I'd say no.

    People these days are so quick to get offended and call something racist when there is zero such intent. Canadian culture especially is a mixture of many, and telling people they "aren't allowed" to do harmless things because maybe someone might be offended is a little too far down the PR road for me.
    This. Rarely is context taken into consideration.

    WOOOT WOOT! BREAKING NEWS ON beyond.ca here.....white man poster FINALLY understands what it's really like to be a marginalized person in Canada ROFL.
    ...
    Umm... Not sure if srs... It's pretty obviously the proverbial me, isn't it? You are also being told "you're the wrong colour to draw a picture".
    It doesn't matter whether it's you or me or white or magenta.
    Telling an ethnic group that they're the wrong colour to do _______ is not part of the healing journey. It's not part of any journey to anywhere good.

    Unless you're white. Then it's cultural appropriation. So go eat a hamburger.

    OmG chopsticks... Don't get me started!
    How could an ethnic group (multiple groups, actually) that uses such vastly inferior food delivery implements have risen to such dominance instead of starving is beyond me! I'd have starved to death shortly after breast feeding if I had to use those things.
    How are Dutch people considered so stubborn when they don't come from a culture that insists on eating soup with two mildly pointy sticks?!?!!

    I'll stick with my shovelling implements, please!

    LoL! Good times!

    You can't say it's inferior. That's racist. I believe asian food is typically prepared in a manner that the chopsticks work fine once you pass the learning curve and are willing to do some slurping...
    I do use chopsticks for my Chinese food and Vietnamese. 2020 questions if I am holding them correctly, or if I should be using them at all.

    He’s clearly never seen the efficiency of shoveling food with chopsticks.

    Shovel is better shovel than things that aren't shovel.

    The key is that chopsticks can be used as a long shovel. It's demonstrated here:



    At least 3x the surface area in shovel mode compared to a fork or spoon.

    Ok, so you take teams that have been i6n Death's Door financially like Arizona and Florida. Subtract 100% of their attendance and other revenues.
    Why do I look crazy when I say "how are you still a thing??!??!"
    WtF!!?!
