I worked at a TV station when I was in college. It was a really fun and interesting job and I learned a lot of things that remain very useful to my life. I'm really grateful to the people I worked with at OTV, and I hope they're all doing well!

This story, people will likely notice, has some things to do with a conversation society is having around cultural appropriation. I think this is a frame through which some people who might be resistant to the idea that cultural appropriation is disrespectful or harmful could better understand it. But I don't think it's the same thing...for a bunch of different reasons.
