New issue for lefties, cultural appropriation of food

Should I stop cooking my own curries - mine are probably more authentic than the crap served up in most curry houses - but I don't want to offend anyone? Do these people have nothing else to worry about?

has an example most indian resturants are acluly ran by pakis,have you ever heard anyone say they are off for a paki ?

Pathetic indeed. Who is she talking to? How many people in the whole of the UK give a flying fuck about this... 3 ?

I like eating out and have been working in the restaurant industry for years. Recently, a restaurant that I love going to was called out in the media because an employee was posting racist content and mocking the people from which the food he cooks originates. Lots of people came forward to accuse the restaurant of cultural appropriation, basically saying that white people ran the restaurant and benefited from another culture’s cuisine, whitewashing it for a quick buck.

What does that even mean?

It could be a Pakistani working in a fish 'n' chip shop slagging off the French for their fries, but serving curry sauce is cultural appropriation.

We need a fucking great war. If you're starving to death you won't give a flying where or what has been appropriated.

I wish there was some other way to end this lunacy but I no longer see one. :(

It's mental isn't it. If we can't eat their fucking food then why are they here? (Not that I do eat their fucking food!)

"If you object your going to be stigmatised" that was the past, this is the future. Poppy Noor and her ilk are just an echo from a bygone age.

Bangladeshis not Pakis. There are some Pakistani restaurants around - e.g. the excellent Lahore Kebab House in Whitechapel - but the food is rather different and usually more authentic.

      Another thread crosser. I honestly couldn’t decide which of the obvious threads to stick it in - maybe people with more time on their hands can cross post? 
      Anyway, if you care about your health and make sure you aren’t a bloated sack of lard you are apparently benefiting from thin privilege.
      The self delusion levels here are enormous. Let’s flip it. So, do people going into most places to eat (where you are never really sure if you are getting healthy food even if it looks like it might be) benefitting from fat privilege? 
      The gulf between reality and what these morons want to be reality is getting so great you’d need a vessel capable of faster than light travel to cross it.

      What caused the Saddleworth Moor fire? The immediate reason, of course, is the peculiarly hot and dry conditions of the past few weeks. But that may not be the end of the story. Some types of vegetation are much more susceptible to fire than others, and the kind that prevails on Saddleworth Moor was an accident waiting to happen, a human-made tinderbox.
      As the environmental campaigner Guy Shrubsole says, the fire sites on the moor correlate closely with places managed for driven grouse shooting: the practice of sending large numbers of red grouse over the heads of people lying in shooting butts who pay – in some cases, thousands of pounds a day – for the privilege. In order to attract such fees, the moors are managed to maximise the number of grouse. This often involves draining boggy ground, and cutting and burning vegetation to maintain a monoculture of low heather. Such an artificial habitat often happens, as the Forestry Commission notes, to be highly susceptible to wildfires.
      Were the moors not drained and cleared for grouse shooting, the ground would be wetter and the heather monoculture replaced by a far richer set of habitats, dominated by woodland.
       
      surely, if the moors were allowed to become more boggy again and trees and shrubs were allowed to recollonate, (sp?), then it wouldn’t be moorland would it?

      I've hung out on a few forums over the years - ToS, Dosbods, PistonHeads, CyclingForums, Motley Fool etc - and it's interesting to note the different vibes which range from jovial through to downright hostile and unwelcoming. For me, the nastiest most horrible prize has to go to the britishexpats Canada forum (http://britishexpats.com/forum/canada-56/). I found a fair bit of useful information on there back when I moved to Toronto but I was never tempted to sign up due to the bizarrely nihilistic and unpleasant tone of most of the regulars both to new members and each other. 
      Anyone got an even worse example?
