Hipster Mormons Culturally Appropriating Hindu Holiday

White people just can’t win.

They tell us we’re supposed to “celebrate diversity” and we’re accused of “ignorance” if we don’t. But then when we do try to appreciate aspects of foreign cultures, we’re accused of “cultural appropriation” and “exoticization.”

The latest “hipster racist” outrage is Mormons in Utah celebrating Holi, the Hindu Holiday. (After all, if anyone is “white” it’s Mormons in Utah.) Carol Kuruvilla at the Huffington Post points and sputters:

Hipsters, Please Don’t Culturally Appropriate Holi On Instagram: Learn about this “color festival” you’re celebrating.

Thousands are expected to crowd outside Utah’s Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple this weekend for what might be the largest celebration of Holi in the United States.

Although Holi is tied to Hinduism, many attendees will likely be young Mormons from nearby schools like Brigham Young University, lured by the promise of big, colorful, messy party.

In recent years, Hindu Americans have found that the Holi celebrations they organize for their own communities are increasingly drawing interest from non-Hindus. The spirit of Holi is one of playfulness and inclusivity, so people of other faiths are often welcomed to join in on the fun.

But there’s a fine line between appreciating culture and appropriating culture. The problem happens when people who don’t identify as Hindus strip the festival of its spiritual context and history, turning an ancient holiday into a chance for hipsters to throw a raucous party and post the pictures on Instagram.

When Kuruvilla isn’t lecturing White Hipster Mormons on their insensitivity, she’s lecturing White Americans on “Why We Need A Muslim Woman’s Day” and accusing White Americans of “racism” for thinking of “Indian Americans” as a “model minority.”

But here she has some instructions for White Americans on whether or not they are allowed to celebrate Holi:

So before saying “yes” to a friend’s invitation to attend a Holi party, it’s worthwhile to take a second look at the event itself. The important questions in play seem to be first, whether Hindu Americans are involved in putting on the event, and secondly, whether the organizers acknowledge Holi’s origins.

One can imagine the reaction if White Americans similarly lectured Indians and other “model minorities” on making sure a Whitey was involved in organizing their Christmas and Halloween parties.

Holi is a spring festival that celebrates new life. It’s a time when traditional social boundaries are overturned, according to Anantanand Rambachan, a religion professor at St. Olaf College.

“Children can squirt elders, and women can douse the men. Animosities, like the darkness and cold of winter, are forgotten and unity prevails. In the celebration of Holi, we all become one, overlooking differences of age, authority and status,” Rambachan told The Huffington Post.

But it looks like Kuruvilla and her “religion expert” may be guilty of some “white washing” Holi themselves, as the holiday has recently become a celebration of Hindu Nationalism in India, we are warned by the presumably Jewish Ariel Sophia Bardi, who apparently travels the world to find examples of “problematic nationalism.”

How Holi Got Politicized: India’s festival of colors is usually a religious and cultural celebration, but this year it had a distinctly partisan hue.

In Mathura’s old city, packs of men marched through winding, paint-splattered streets swinging white lotus flags, the trademark logo of the BJP. After the election, the hashtags “#victory” and “#ModiWave” continued to trend on Twitter—along with “#saffronization,” a reference to the influence of right-wing political Hinduism on domestic policy (saffron is the Hindu nationalist party color). Flooded with BJP party logos, Holi’s religious celebrations soon began to look like nationalist rallies.

The politicization of Holi was a fitting pivot for a political party that has built its brand on the perceived persecution of Hindus and the insertion of ancient Hindu lore into mainstream contemporary politics.

To this Hipster Racist it seems that Bardi and Kuruvilla can figure this out for themselves. But this author must stand up for his people and declare to all White Racist Hipsters everywhere: Go ahead and get your Holi on, Whiteys make everything cooler.

(No word if Kuruvilla has apologized for appropriating the very European (Germanic and Latin) name “Carol.”)

    A cursory search didn’t reveal Kuruvilla to be a Jew. She evidently does know about the biological essence of race.

    Talking about Mormons, I lurked into the r/exmormon subreddit and there was a thread about Mormons being recruit targets for the CIA and other alphabet soup agencies, one mentioned that it was a Mormon that came with “improved interrogation” torture used by the USG.

      Supposedly J. Edgar Hoover liked to recruit Mormons for the FBI because they were “clean living and knew how to keep a secret,” presumably something to do with polygamy. Nolen said that Jews, Catholics and Mormons were over-represented in spook agencies because their religions were more “cultish” than, say, the Episcopalians or Methodists.

      I noticed that the NSA put their new data center way out in Bumbfuck, Utah, deep in the heart of Mormon country, far away from the Bosh-Wash corridor. In case you wondered why they did, it only took six months for the “Israeli art students” to show up, canvassing suburban Mormon neighborhoods, trying to push their way into peoples homes and businesses in the area.

    No White person is safe:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4357420/White-LA-students-told-t-wear-hooped-earrings.html

    White women accused of cultural appropriation have been told to scrap their ‘hoop earrings’ after a group of Latino college students complained that ‘black and brown folks’ were being exploited by it.

    A group of students, identifying themselves as women of color, wrote, ‘White Girl, take off your hoops’ on a ‘free wall’ used for unmoderated free speech at Pitzer College in Los Angeles, California.

    After one student was confused by the message, Alegria Martinez, Jacquelyn Aguilera, and Stefania Gallo-Gonzalez addressed the school in emails explaining the ‘artwork’.

    Martinez wrote: ‘The black and brown bodies who typically wear hooped earrings, (and other accessories like winged eyeliner, gold name plate necklaces, etc) are typically viewed as ghetto, and are not taken seriously by others in their daily lives.

    ‘White people have actually exploited the culture and made it into fashion,’ she added.

    While hoop earrings date back to ancient times, they have also been staples among Cholas and hip hop artists who popularized large hoops and doorknocker earrings before they were featured in fashion shows like the Marc Jacobs Fall 2017 collection

    Martinez, an active member of the Latinx Student Union, wrote an email to the entire student body explaining that hoop earrings are just one accessory appropriated by white people, the Claremont Independent reported.

    She said: ‘The art was created by myself and a few other WOC [women of color] after being tired and annoyed with the reoccurring theme of white women appropriating styles…that belong to the black and brown folks who created the culture.

    ‘The culture actually comes from a historical background of oppression and exclusion.

    ‘The black and brown bodies who typically wear hooped earrings, (and other accessories like winged eyeliner, gold name plate necklaces, etc) are typically viewed as ghetto, and are not taken seriously by others in their daily lives.

    ‘Because of this, I see our winged eyeliner, lined lips, and big hoop earrings serving as symbols as an everyday act of resistance, especially here at the Claremont Colleges.

    ‘Meanwhile we wonder, why should white girls be able to take part in this culture (wearing hoop earrings just being one case of it) and be seen as cute/aesthetic/ethnic.

    ‘White people have actually exploited the culture and made it into fashion,’ she said.

    After the incident received national media attention, Martinez, Aguilera, and Gallo-Gonzalez say they have been harassed by ‘right-wing groups and individuals’. One received a death threat through Facebook messenger, they said.

    College President Melvin L. Oliver issued a statement condemning the ‘cycle of violent hate speech’ directed at students as a result.

    The entire concept of universal citizenship is cultural appropriation.

    Minorities don’t even need to act the part, they just need an administrative document to be play Jefferson and Washington 24/7… and if you object, WAYCISS.

    The MSM is finally starting to attack all Whites, not just White WAYCISS, for their wrong-think. That’s a good start.

    Only when the political field is so polarized that the only two options for a White person are :

    1. White Nationalism
    2. “So Sorry” humiliation

    can pro-Whites dream of any sort of mainstream relevancy.

    That’s the premise of the Tyrone Doctrine.

It also ties into what you’re talking about here but based on White’s excessive individualism. It also covers why the Jews run everything. It’s very good, it’s not long and please don’t miss it. I’ve found Giovanni Dannato has great insights on a lot of subjects. All his stuff is worth reading.

      I read it, thanks. He bemoans our hyper-individualism and considers it a weakness without any sort of contextualization. And yet individualism is arguably thedefining characteristic of Western peoples:
      http://www.kevinmacdonald.net/west-toq.htm

      See also HBD Chick on the Church and its emphasis on the individual within society:
      https://hbdchick.wordpress.com/2011/04/04/whatever-happened-to-european-tribes/

      We are what millenia of outbreeding have made us and no amount of willing can turn us into Jews (even if that were desirable). There’s nothing wrong with individualism per se provided there are forces to constrain it, ie. Church, culture, tradition and family. Since the French Revolution the former have been taken over or corrupted by the State. Placing those institutions under the aegis of the central government has allowed control of same to pass to a hostile élite. I don’t hold much hope until a critical mass of people fall out of love with Big Brother. Ain’t going to be pretty.

        Here’s one of the guys who liked Sam J’s article and makes similar points:

        https://musingsofascotchdrinkingman.wordpress.com/

        It’s not that Whites can’t co-operate as a group, it’s just that we need an “overarching moral ingroup” in order to do so. But because of mass media, thus mass culture, any time Whites organize in our own interests it is demonized. All other groups are allowed to take their own side, but when Whites do, it’s “White Supremacy” Hitler/KKK/etc.

        Anyone remember the name of the economic hypothetical thought experiment that explains how a minority group can become dominant compared to a larger groups? It’s called the “Something Island Model” and it explains the mechanics of market dominant minorities. I just can’t remember the name of the island.

        “…He bemoans our hyper-individualism and considers it a weakness without any sort of contextualization…”

        Giovanni Dannato is really smart. He has some brilliant post. Really insightful stuff so he sees the advantages he’s just pointing out the disadvantages. We’re atomized too much.

        “…There’s nothing wrong with individualism per se provided there are forces to constrain it, ie. Church, culture, tradition and family…”

        “…It’s not that Whites can’t co-operate as a group, it’s just that we need an “overarching moral ingroup” in order to do so…”

        I agree strongly with both these facts. I think it possible that younger Whites will find it a good enough ingroup idea that we’re losing badly. Any White person that has dealings with “diversity” soon realizes that we’re being fed lies. We could at any time throw off our burdens but so far just can’t seem to be able to do so. A LOT of younger people know about the Jews. 9-11 was a huge fuck up for them as it showed the government was in no way ours. That others controlled it. I think pizzagate will erode faith even further. It may be that pizzagate is not all a big deal but it directly leads to the Finders, Franklin Savings, the British pedo cases and the Dutroux affair. These can’t be waved away. Too much evidence.

    This is off topic but it gave me such great joy I need to post it in case I forget. I’ve almost been banned many times posting this. It made the Jews furious. I don’t think there’s anything I’ve every posted that made them so mad and it made me laugh maniacally every time I posted it. The Jews would always tell me how wonderful they were and how great things were going for them and I would post this.
