"”What do you say to those who feel offended by your hair?” asked Morgonpasset in P3, the new minister of culture. According to the hosts, mean many listeners to Amanda Lind, is guilty of ”cultural reclamation”. As white, we must not have Bob Marley's hairstyle. It should be left in Jamaica."
"A squeeze of Lime said that it is ”an important discussion”. No, it is not. It's a ridiculous discussion that we have approprierat from a kränkthetskrig at american universities. Yes, there are those who dress up as minorities in order to mock and offend. But the fault is not that they do, but they are yahoos. As every child knows, it is not the same thing to bully a classmate of her style and to take after the style to you like that – it is the opposites."
"But the familiar kulturpoliser who are looking for new ways to press down an anxious middle class has done all cultural loans to contaminated land. This year it was a white student who wore a cheongsam (”kinaklänning”) a ball that was hung out. She just thought it was beautiful."
"She did not know that it made her a racist."
"this is a disgusting quest for cultural purity, where pösmunksvänstern meets the far right in disgust towards cultures meet and mix. Instead of playing with the should Amanda Lind have given a lesson in culture. To mix and make it alien to its is not colonialism – it IS culture."
"Look at Her more conventional piffade ministerial colleagues. Their costumes were developed in the 1600s after the eastern european and islamic models, the shirt is from the Middle east and the tie from the croatians (”cravat”). All of these cut short snedbenor began as a roman soldatfrisyr, which, after 1795 became the fashion in the western world that the british introduced a tax on hair powder, which made it expensive to wear a wig."
"When you look closer you will see that almost all ”pure”, national styles inspired by the other. The mexican sombreron came from the spaniards, and came in turn to inspire cowboyhatten. The japanese kimono came from China, and the Kinaklänning recently created the scandal is ironically a modern reclamation of the western kvinnomode. Conservative chinese people deplored the 1930's that women started to dress like French women."
"this is The way that human culture works. As Salman Rushdie explains, everything new from the ”hybridity, impurity, confusion ... new and unexpected combinations of people, cultures, ideas.”"
"just Look at the roman catholic Bob Marley. He started to grow dreadlocks after converting to rastafari, a creative blend of the Bible and pan-afrikanism. The idea for the dreads, they took from the radical jews, in Leviticus, God promised not to cut themselves."
"the Country appointed the Ethiopian orthodox emperor Haile Selassie as the Messiah despite the fact that he did not want to be on it, which must be regarded as a new world record in the reclamation."
"Amanda lind's hairstyle is not theft. At its height, it is receiving stolen goods. It was Bob Marley who started."

"▪ In the anthology The Invention of Tradition, one can read that the most scottish that is, the short, patterned kilten, was created in 1730 by a quaker from the English Lancashire. First, in the 1800s found the clothing companies that the clans would have their own kiltmönster, in order to spur sales. Säckpipan seems to have been imported from Spain."
