If you costume like this, we can’t be friends. No, really.

 

 

Hey Race Invaders, this episode we’re talking about Cultural Appropriation – what it looks like, who it impacts, and appropriation versus exchange. We also make fun of that White Pho Chef dude, and no – we aren’t sorry for it in the least.

We talk about why the Disney Moana costume was a terrible idea, and since we’ve recorded Disney has thought better of it and pulled the costume from the shelves. Yay!
