When I hear the word "appropriation", as if any ethnic group or skin color "owned" any activity, I basically stop reading and consign the argument to the dustbin.

This heuristic is staggeringly effective, proven by the times back In The Day when I read the whole thing to be sure I wasn't missing something insightful or relevant.

I wasn't.

Because that term - and its ilk - is cant, and cant used only by the sort of people who think it's both an argument and a compelling one.
