Appropriation “I'm just saying it's important to listen and to
be humble… this is not my culture to begin with. This is not a
culture that white people started. So I do believe, as much as
I have honed my craft, as much as I have put in years of
dedication into the music that I love, I do believe that I need
to know my place, and that comes from me listening." –
"I saw a Tweet, it was something along the lines of 'Hip-Hop
was birthed out of the Civil Rights Movement.' This is a
culture that came from pain, it came from oppression, it came
from white oppression… you cannot disregard where this
culture came from and our place in it as white people." - Macklemore
