I took this "white people have no culture" thing kinda skeptically since its mostly aimed at white americans and i have no idea what they're like culture-wise (USA is like. younger than my city let alone my country)

but i just saw this makeup challenge where an indian artist said "i saw this and thought about how indian wedidng wear, sari, is very colorful, i want to make a nod to indian culture and incorporate those colors into my makeup"

and a white artist just said "i was inspired by a camo print on a shoe"

The World of the Shining Prince: Court Life in Ancient Japan

Ivan Morris, 1969

[id: an image of black serif text (the kind that might be found in a printed book) on a white background. It reads,

"The humanist idea that the naked body can be a thing of aesthetic joy and significance is alien to the Japanese tradition; the female figure was never included in the contemporary cult of beauty. In Murasaki's case we find not merely indifference to the nude form but actual aversion. In her diary she describes the scene in which two maids-of-honour are robbed of their clothes in the middle of the night. At the sight of the poor naked ladies, their fellow attendants are thrown into pandemonium and rush about ineffectually like frightened barnyard fowl. When things have quieted down, Murasaki comments, 'Unfortunately horrible is the naked body. It really does not have the slightest charm.'²" end id.]

while white suburban moms were looking for unique names, soviets were about inventing completely new names which would reflect the soviet culture, not be old-fashioned and the like. a lot of kids were named after Lenin, but not everyone could be Vladimir, so there were some different abbreviations of Lenin's name and initials such as Vladlen, Vilen to call the kids. Other names were abbreviations for popular slogans and big events in current history.
