@bstacey Right? I don't understand the insistence to make food they clearly are ignorant of and/or don't understand.
I kind of want them to stop, but I'm really enjoying people that do actually know the culture go in on them.
@denikombucha For real...
This one isn't taking donations anymore, but plenty more still are.
But seriously, beautiful people. Sri Lanka really needs some help. Anything helps.
@ross And lest we forget, probably the most violent.

@meena I'll let you handle the specificities of your culture because you know more about it than I do, but the point is that there _is_ a historical context to where you come from. There is a culture that was built over time that informed decisions such as food.
Whiteness completely removes that context, which is highlighted by the lack of any personality to the food that comes from people that identify with that ideology.
@June Once you see the patterns...
@alpine_thistle Ha, I mean seeing how they generally just repurpose popular memes to get their message across (i.e. Pepe the Frog), they don't really strike me as a particularly creative group of folks.
@glyzinite Hm. I've never thought weaponizing of the term had any such nuance to it, but that's just me.
And it absolutely has become a dog whistle, just like the word 'communist' because this BAD THING™ because a handful of white guys wanted it too.
@meena I would honestly say that's a product of forgetting where you come from, or more appropriately in terms of the culture of whiteness, what one gives up to be white.
We joke about the lack of flavor of food white people appropriate, but it's just another symptom of culture itself.
@stolas Some are, sure.
Some are just dickheads.
@paco Ha, that's generally how I interpret it as well.
It's like people who refuse to engage in good faith and respect are UPSET they are being treated like assholes.
There is nothing wrong with respecting one's space and boundaries. They're just being dickheads.
