Although many Asians and Asian Americans are upset, it’s important to give non-Asians the benefit of the doubt to grow and learn so that history does not repeat itself. There is always room for reflection and improvement. I asked my friend Jen Louie, a first-generation Chinese American, what her thoughts were on this controversy. She said, “If you are to take inspiration from, redesign, or profit from something that is not part of your cultural identity, you need to ask yourself: Why am I doing it? Who is it benefiting? Who will it hurt?” She also added that “it should be done with respect to the culture by properly acknowledging and sharing its history, origin, and meaning.” To the women of The Mahjong Line and anyone else who has found themselves to be the culprit of cultural appropriation: Understand the difference between appropriation and appreciation.
