Can Other Races Wear Black Hairstyles?

Best sipped with: 
Peach, sweet tea from Buc-ee's

Stealing or discrediting a culture and it's assets is culture appropriation and in some cases white washing. But to enjoy cool things from another culture is NOT those things if enjoyed with respect and humility.

August 9th, Khloe Kardashian shared a picture online of her sporting some bantu knots. Bantu knots, if you're unfamiliar, is a hairstyle created by and worn by the black community. (Unfortunately not a suitable hair do' for my huge head)

Black Twitter got ahold of the picture and expressed their distaste of the Kardashian appropriating black culture.

Here’s the tea, I see their body modifications; their love interests and their overall style but I feel flattered and not robbed by the Kardashians.

What are your thoughts? Is the Dash-Jenner clan keeping up too closely with black culture or are their moves harmless? Spill the tea!
