My friend (White American) has a child with a man who is from India. Their daughter is in elementary school and knows nothing about her father's culture aside from the Tamil names for her grandparents and that she really shouldn't eat beef though she has been raised as Christian. However, her mother insists on sending her to school with a bindi (forehead decoration) that is color coordinated with her clothing. She does not find it odd at all. I know it's not exactly cultural misappropriation since her dad is Indian.
TQC, do you find it odd when people only pick up only on the cool/cute pieces from other cultures?
