  1. Define where you think the line is between cultural appropriation and cultural sharing.  Use a picture from the internet to make your definition more concrete.  Paste the two images in your reflection.
  2. Does the discussion of cultural appropriation infringe on freedom of speech?
  3. What do you think about author Brihana Joy Gray's suggestions - "A few simple questions can help us think about specific cases: (1) Is there a historic record of exploitation between the appropriator and the originating group? (2) Is the originating group and its culture being celebrated, appreciated, and respected, or are they being degraded, mocked and accessorized? (There’s a difference between Eminem’s genuine relationship to the environment of 8 Mile Road and his immersion in Detroit hip hop and, say, a person wearing a tacky, cruelly stereotypical, and cartoonish Mexican Halloween costume.) (3) Is the appropriator actually claiming to be the owner or innovator, or allowing the media to create a false origin narrative? (E.g. Elvis as the “King” or Miley Cyrus’s “invention” of twerking.) (4) Is differential economic enrichment occurring? Is the cultural product more valuable in the hands of the appropriator, and does that have wider financial or political consequences for certain groups?"

  • Watch a video from the series "Abstract" on Netflix and write a half page journal of your thoughts or observations while watching.

  • Re-design a terrible piece of graphic design from the internet.  Use white space and rule of thirds to really make your image more balanced and attractive.

    (In Photo-shop, press Ctrl-K to open your Preferences. Click on Guides, Grid & Slices from the list on the left and change the settings for the Grid section as follows: Gridline every 100 percent, Subdivisions 3, and click OK. When you turn on the grid by pressing Ctrl-‘(apostrophe) a rule-of-thirds grid will be superimposed over the image.)
