<< White women's burrito shop is forced to close after being hounded with accusations it was 'culturally appropriating Mexican food and jobs'
....
For the first few months, the weekend pop-up shop housed in an taco truck was a smash hit. It gained so much popularity, a local weekly newspaper decided to profile the entrepreneurial duo. >>

Then the attacks started, because these ladies happen to be white.

<< 'The problem with Kooks burritos is that these women have no passion or respect for the culture from which they stole'
....
'This week in white nonsense, two white women—Kali Wilgus and Liz 'LC' Connely—decided it would be cute to open a food truck after a fateful excursion to Mexico... The owners of Kooks Burritos all but admitted in an interview with Willamette Week that they colonized this style of food'.
...
The piece went on to claim getting the weekend taco truck closed was a 'victory' in Portland - a city it accused of having 'underlying racism'.

'These appropriating businesses are erasing and exploiting their already marginalized identities for the purpose of profit and praise.' >>

I wonder what would happen if somebody turns the argument around and tells aliens coming to this country that they should not be in America if they do not have respect and passion for the American culture.
