    This puts me in mind of the dentist on ôSeinfeldö who converted to Judaism so he would have ôtotal joke immunityö.

    And that brings up the question of what came first - culture misappropriation or cancel culture?

    Can a European based culture be appropriated?

But there is also ginning up controversy for controversies sake as a grift. Mostly thinking Meghan Murphy falls into that, because honestly if it's people one never ever would have heard about otherwise ... If it's like: "who?" Then it's maybe someone's get rich scheme.
    Yes, getting mileage out of being ôcancelledö can happen.

    I remember thinking that Mark Steyne got quite a bit of mileage in outrage at his treatment by Canadian thought police. Sometimes bad things happening end up to be good.

    But thatĺs not to say he overdid it. I heard his talk a couple of times and it stuck with me, but his ongoing telling of the tale may well have educated many people to the dangers of thought police.
