  1. Hi friends. After reading the piece (and others like it) on Miley and thinking about JT and Robin Thicke, I am left grappling with some big questions, and I would love to hear some of your thoughts: when does cultural appreciation become appropriation? How can we write and talk about cultural appropriation without falling down the slippery slope of making sweeping generalizations about communities and racial/ethnic groups? And in the cases of some white rappers, where do we separate a street culture found in many low-income urban areas that transverses race (though is still deeply rooted in racism) with racist appropriation and minstrel antics?
