A Fiery Debate Over Cultural Ownership 🔥

So, our red-haired protagonist finds herself in the middle of a heated debate about cultural appropriation and white privilege. Despite being raised in a Nigerian household, she's accused of appropriating the culture she's grown up with. The university dropped the case, but the BAME officer still believed it was inappropriate for her to claim African culture. The question remains: is it really appropriation if it's the only culture she's ever known? Let's see what the internet has to say about this fiery situation...🔥🌍
