Hunger Games Star Amandla Stenberg talks Cultural Appropriation

It took sixteen year old Hunger Games star Amandla Stenberg to say what adults in the entertainment industry should have been saying. Not only did Amandla break down cultural appropriation she did it in a way where anyone watching would be able to understand. Rapper Azealia Banks has already mentioned this in multiple interviews as Amandla pointed out, but because she is so passionate and upset it always comes across as her ranting or playing the “angry black girl” role. Too many black artists are not speaking up about cultural appropriation and they really should especially because it is down right mocking their work and culture. I am happy that Amandla Stenberg stood up and spoke about it, watch the video below and share your thoughts…
