I Oppose Private-Property Appropriation

Here’s a letter to the Wall Street Journal:


Tunku Varadarajan rightly decries progressives’ criticism of the British singer Adele for wearing African-style Bantu knots (“The Sun Never Sets on the Woke Empire,” September 3).

Progressives are bizarre: Hallucinating that disrespect and danger lurk in “cultural appropriation,” they’re blind to the very real disrespect and danger that lurk in private-property appropriation.
