Firstly I understand certain things can be cultural appropriation but not hoop earrings. Honestly, they have been around forever, and at times certain cultures have been more associated with them, sure, but white girls have been wearing them a long time too. They are not a new trend for anyone. I’ve been wearing hoops almost every day of my life since I was about 11, and I’m in my early 30s. If I were to go missing one day, I’m sure they would draw my missing person picture with hoops.
Cultural appropriation should be reserved for things that are done maliciously.
I found numerous Marilyn Monroe photos in the 60s or Bridgette Bardot or Elizabeth Taylor all rocking hoop earrings a long time ago. This is not a new thing.
If true equality is going to happen, people need to stop putting people in boxes; oh, this culture can do this and this that. If a black woman wears a straight blonde wig, is that not cultural appropriation? I mean, where does the insanity end. I am not insensitive to things by any means both my children are half Jamaican. But these kinds of articles aren’t going to bring people together it will ostracize people unnecessarily.
