Kill Whitey!

I've already blabbed about this on IRC, but....

I posted elsewhere about my Halloween costume, which I described as a sorta-Evil Geisha - and I promptly got flamed by Canuckistani teenagers for 'culturally appropriating' and being racist. A choice quote below:

this is not about censorship (in response to the thought police comment below), it is about power and racism. white people have a huge amount of power. it is not okay for us to go around stealing other people's customs, styles of dress, etcetera because we think they're cool. they do not belong to us and we have stolen so very very much already.
I'm still pretty incredulous about it all. It makes me wonder if, were I Hispanic, it would have been OK in their eyes.
