Having Solved All The World’s Problems, United Nations Takes On Cultural Appropriation

On one hand, Leftists yammer on about diversity and multiculturalism and coming together and stuff. On the other hand, they have meltdowns over “cultural appropriation.” We get freakouts over certain women wearing braids in their hair, big hoop earings, twerk (really, no woman should twerk. Seems rather degrading in my mind, but, I’m probably a Misogynistic Offender for holding that opinion per Liberal World), and cooking food from other cultures. Even Kareem Abdul Jabbar had a minor issue. But, he does note it will continue, because “melting pot” and assimilation and similar notions. The United Nations doesn’t like this (via Twitchy)

From the article

Indigenous advocates from around the world are calling on a UN committee to make appropriating Indigenous cultures illegal — and to do it quickly.

Delegates from 189 countries, including Canada, are in Geneva this week as part of a specialized international committee within the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a United Nations agency.

Since it began in 2001, the committee has been working on creating and finishing three pieces of international law that would expand intellectual-property regulations to protect things like Indigenous designs, dances, words and traditional medicines.

So, if you’re not Mexican, and want to cook Mexican food, you could find yourself on the wrong end of a U.N. inquisition, branded a Hate Crime offender.

Obviously, this is aimed at White people, because it’s allowed nowadays to assault White people in all manners. If these U.N. idiots and Indigenous cultures want to play this game, then they are no longer allowed to use airplanes and automobiles, because that would be appropriation of White culture. Same with aspirin, blow dryers, bras, computers, and a whole host of other things. And no one but Black people would be allowed to use 3 light traffic signals. If you’re not Greek, you cannot use the elevator. If you’re not a White American, you cannot use the telephone. That’d be a bummer for all the folks working for the United Nations, eh?

Perhaps the UN should worry more about their “peacekeepers” raping the people in the areas they patrol. And all the dictators and human rights abusers within the body.

    Of course TEACH misses the point, either intentionally or out of ignorance…

    He even copied and pasted the key phrase:

    international law that would expand intellectual-property regulations to protect things like Indigenous designs, dances, words and traditional medicines.

    The discussion is whether to expand patents and copyrights to cover these issues. Corporations are well compensated for their medicines, washing machines, software, books, music and automobiles and much of this compensation derives from ideas and inventions covered by patent and copyright law.

    Shouldn’t inventors and artists (even from poor nations and cultures) be rewarded for their efforts?

    • Henry says:

      But would the ‘law’ be applied to all or just someone of a different race or ethnicity? Copyright laws don’t have race or ethnicity written into them.

      • Jeffery says:

        A fair question. It would be patent and copyright law applied to expanded targets. But since international patent and copyright law was developed to protect the “rights” and possessions of the rich and powerful (mostly white guys) the proposed changes could end up rewarding more non-whites than whites. But after all, the Emancipation Proclamation added more rights for non-whites than whites, and “unfairly” so, according to today’s Con Men.

          My God, you are stupid, you don’t even have a clue to the Emancipation Proclamation and exactly what it did. If you knew the law then you would know you just expounded on a topic opposite to what you want to convey. Dumb, dumb, dumb. Besides, you cured cancer, I am sure you want something back you the rest of your life so there must be a hidden motive in what you are up to.

            dave,

            We’ve noticed you hurl invective but never explain anything. Why is that? We think it’s because you don’t understand what you type.

            Although it was an aside to my comment, we’ve noticed how you are drawn to anything related to the losing Confederacy like a horsefly is drawn to dung. Certainly you should be able to explain the Emancipation Proclamation in a few sentences, especially pertaining to how it’s a bad example for my original point.

            We suspect you consider the EP to be an assault on white men.

    If the UN had any intent to be useful, it would work hard to enforce the blatant and open violations of patents and theft of IP that is rampant in the developing world. A huge portion of China’s economy comes from the theft of intellectual property, designs, and patents. Their govt doesn’t give a crap as their people openly copy and sell European cars, American sporting goods, music, movies, clothing, Japanese appliances, car parts, stolen military designs, etc.

    But of course, the UN doesn’t make any attempt to be useful.
