PROBLEM! THIS is cultural appropriation. I highly doubt this woman is a Hindu, wearing a binding, or Afghanistani with that head wrap style, Egyptians eyes or Arabic with the rest of her outfit. THIS is the problem. I'm sorry you think it's a complement, it's not. Our culture is not a necklace to be worn as a costume. If you REALLY respected it or understood it you wouldn't be wearing our sacred things. Because you would KNOW you hadn't earned them. Harquu marks, show your TRIBE!
