I’m east Indian and I have no problem with white people/people who aren’t Indian wearing bindis or saris.
I think it’s kind of cool actually, they’re embracing the culture. Just as long as they aren’t making fun, some people can really rock it. I understand completely i mean the fabrics are bright and colorful and dripping in jewels.
Gwen Stefani used to wear a bindi because her long-time boyfriend and bassist for No Doubt was Indian. She wasn’t doing it to mock his culture, she wanted to be a part of it.
I really only get offended when people start talking in an indian accent and act dumb, or joke about how indians smell.
So, in all honesty, I really don’t see the harm in people embracing a culture other than their own.
