A couple of days ago, singer Adele experienced kind of a mini-shit storm when she posted a picture of herself on Instagram at the Notting Hill Carnival in London. On it, the British singer wears a bikini top printed with a Jamaican flag, among other things. She has knotted her hair into Bantu Knots, a hairstyle that has its origins in the Black community. The accusation to which she then found herself exposed: cultural appropriation. As a white British woman, it was not her place to braid her hair into Bantu Knots, since she was not Black and this type of hairstyle was part of the culture of the Black community. And as a carnival gag this was even worse, period.
