I heard that, I gave 2 seconds worth of consideration to texting in about it.
I had visions of twitter melting down and no platforming him.

His reaction after was great as well, 'ehhhh, well it's a great song' or something like that, clearly someone told him he'd just done something 'problematic'

I no platformed him by asking the person who was listening to the radio if they minded me changing the station.

But I'd regularly do that anyway when Tubs is on

The Truth About ‘Cultural Appropriation’, by Kenan Malik / ArtReview

Only mass social and political campaigns to transform the very structures of society – such as the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s – can bring about such change. Otherwise, social justice comes to be seen not as the erasure of exploitative structures but merely as the possibility of ‘cultural fairness’ within them. The campaigns against cultural appropriation are an implicit acceptance that the playing field cannot be levelled, and that the best we can do is fence off certain areas.

The Celts are cultural appropriation. There was never a distinct genetic group, its was just the flow if innovation and art styles from northern France to here. We be all like yo spirals torcs and shit yo when we get on RTE too.

But then.

Pop music is kind mostly impossible without appropriating ancient greece and africa.

so on

so on.

HOWEVER.

I still feel like giant pissing into time square on every st patricks day as chad and april don their leprechaun hats.

Dreadlocks on some filthy crusty are fine but not on a Love Island contestant. The rules are clear on this.

Was chatting to the girlfriend about the article and she opined that it's probably linked to the hellworld we live in where everything is so intense and complexity ignored in favour of quick, pithy twitter putdowns that we now only see value in totally sincere things, i.e. David Foster Wallace's New Sincerity movement. We've lost the ability to actually value satire or irony or playfulness because the shitty versions of them have taken over so much of culture.

Read the wiki page, that's definitely the first time I've seen the words sincerity and Lars von Triers in the same sentence.
