censorship bites is discussing:

Chinese restaurant Lucky Lee's, opened by white nutritionist Arielle Haspel, shuts down less than a year after accusations of racism and cultural appropriation

This is particularly stupid.

Japanese uses Chinese characters, as does Korean (at least in names). Most restaurants in Japan will have "Chinese-style fried rice" and potstickers, both of which are Chinese imports. Some Japanese quite enjoy Korean shuchu/soju because it makes a nice cocktail. I'd be hard-pressed to count how many "Japanese" or "Japanese-style" restaurants there are here in China. Most curry in China (unless you get it from a Thai or Indian place) is Japanese-style (a little sweet, never spicy), which the Japanese imported from the Brits, who imported it from India.

The rest of Asia "copied" chopsticks from China...but China "copied" beer from Germany, business attire from Europe, and pop music from the US. That's a whole lot of "appropriating" going on.
