OPINIONISTA: Who polices culture to prevent appropriation? Is prevention even necessary?
This month, South Africans will celebrate Heritage Day. It does not matter how it is spun, it is the day in which Zulus go to their Zulu family, Xhosas go to their Xhosa family, Jews go to their Jewish family, and well, us ideologically or religiously lost bandits find things to do with our time. With Heritage Day, we recognise that each person, or group of people, has a cultural identity, and must be given time to ‘go and celebrate their culture with their people’.
