Look, I’m about as far from the alt-right as one can get, and if you read my articles you will see that I routinely defend minorities. But this whole topic of cultural appropriation smacks of leftist overkill to me. It is like folks who knock themselves out trying to prove that they are more sensitive to minority issues than anyone else in the whole wide world.
