On cultural appropriation

I've sort of been following this debate but not fully and not in the far and wide that it's spanned.

But matociquala quotes an awesome comment by a participant here about the whole issue, which to me is parallel to the gender debate. Replace "Character of Coloor" with "Female Character" ... It's a great summary in any case:

Bear says In other words, there's two such massively different sets of experiences at work here that we almost can't hear each other, and we really don't understand what each other are saying.
