GROUP THINK: APPROPRIATION NATION, PT. 1

Dismiss

We know the overdone, tired messaging all too well.

“Kylie Jenner’s Boxer Braids Win On Instagram,” “Timberland Boots Are The Newest Trend For Spring.” We’d laugh if it wasn’t so f–ked up.

This month, in correlation with CASSIUS’ inaugural cover—hold up, our inaugural #conversationcover—”Death to Culture Vultures,” we introduce Group Think, a video series wherein our brilliant staff of editors, creatives and execs (and occasional guests) openly debate and unpack contemporary cultural issues and realities. But this ain’t your everyday roundtable. This episode, Appropriation Nation, Pt.1, features staffers: Darnell Moore, Jamilah Lemieux, Cory Townes, Shani Saxon-Parrish, Rae Holliday, King Sukii, Stephanie Long and James Love. Watch as they tackle some of the larger questions surrounding cultural theft, and a ‘lil brown liquor.
