Turley doesn't think so, but then he apparently thinks Pocahontas is just another Disney princess. You know, like Pollyanna. So we should probably look elsewhere for our New Century thought-leadership. Turley has to conjure up his demon "cultural appropriation" with rhetorical tricks that would be downmarket at a dollar store. Again with the so brave takedown of political correctness that is, hypocritically enough, yet another flavor of reheated political correctness hash and cold, runny eggs. We don't need Turley, and we don't need his cautions against these uppity darkies that don't know their place. Because "cultural appropriation" is covered under a more basic rule — maybe don't go out of your way to be an ignorant dick so much. Maybe there are times and places and settings in which Turley's taste in costumery and runaway cultural stereotyping are grossly offensive. He doesn't know. He doesn't have to. Because as he so smugly points out here, that's his privilege.

Connor is a good writer. Very thoughtful.
