My Yoruba instructor from Nigeria brought me a present of this beautiful shirt:
Now I don’t know what to do. If I wear it, it’s cultural appropriation, colonialism, and exploitative whiteness. But if I don’t, it’s white contempt for Black cultures, racist disrespect, and an imposition of white beauty standards.
Thankfully, the Yoruba instructor has no idea about any of this crap. For now, at least.
