For all the white hipsters who get huffy about how they don’t get to wear headdresses when really they are just whining about not getting to wear headdresses without getting shit for it… THIS. THIS RIGHT HERE IS WHY. Because it is all kinds of fucked up to appropriate someone’s culture while people FROM that culture have not just been historically punished for expressing their culture, but often face active and contemporary harassment.

I mostly disagree with Graeme McMillan’s off-puttingly unconcerned pan of this movie. That said, I’ll concede that this element was, indeed, a huge letdown.
