Then write your congress representatives directly! No matter what state you live in, your federal legislators will vote on this. Tell them to vote NO on raising Shasta Dam!
This is not a drill. This is as real as it gets.
As horrible as this is, saving a community isn’t going to be enough of a reason for the legislators to vote no. California’s drought is an issue that needs to be addressed and it needs to be addressed with a strategy to change water usage and processing. If legislation hasn’t sympathized before, I doubt they’ll do it now. They need a different option.
Friendly reminder: Eating foods that aren’t from your own ethnicity is cultural appropriation so please don’t do it!!

*eats whatever I damn well please.*
If you are so concerned then take it up with the Nepalese, Indians, and Chinese, who successfully run their own ethnic restaurants near white suburbans areas. Why not tell them to quit selling their culture to white people? Why not tell bloggers to quit posting their cultures’ recipes in English? If those groups didn’t provide the merchandise, whites would have a harder time appropriating culture.
Just like stereotypes, not all aspects of cultural appropriation carries the same weight, especially when it directly benefits POC or gives them a platform to represent their culture.
Lets take your logic a step further. If people travel to different countries, don’t you think they should eat food that is available to them? Don’t you think people should culture themselves? What does it sound like when someone enters a country (US or other) and believes they should only eat their own nation’s cuisine because to do otherwise would be a form of cultural appropriation?
