That’s a good point. Never thought of it that way! I’m as white as toast so I don’t know anything about being black either.it's important to remember that blackfishing is TOTALLY NOT ACCEPTED because it basically is blackface when people find out what these girls are doing. that's what makes it so lolcowworthy, there's a huge shitstorm that follows any time they are found out
if you subscribe to the idea, then the theory is something like this: "appropriation" is disrespectfully taking without asking permission or giving credit (like plagiarizing) while "sharing" is respectfully taking with permission and giving credit.
im not black so im no expert here but im confident that black people would like to be respected, and girls who put on blackface to get attention on their instagram accounts are not at all motivated by respect. they just want attention for themselves because they are selfish.
