The numbers decide, although obviously people can dispute the criteria. Health outcomes, income, job and housing security, education, access to decision-making roles, experience of violence, etc. I'd be surprised if we couldn't agree on clear 'winners and losers' in these examples and then see a correlation with race or global west/south countries.
I'd agree that squabbling over what clothes people are 'not allowed' to wear is silly. But these things stir up feelings about underlying inequalities, which is why people want to talk about them.
What’s missing from the article (and what one of the responses below pretends not to understand) is the power relationships involved. Cultural appropriation isn’t just ‘borrowing something from another country’.
It’s great that NFS are brave enough to tackle some of these things rather than just endless camera reviews. But they’re doing it in such an awkwardly rudimentary way and with no follow-up in the discussion, I’m afraid it doesn’t amount to much.
Nobody would doubt the themes of madness and unreliable narration in The Shining, but this has a conspiracy theory ring to it all - working extremely hard to find and connect details that are better explained by simple continuity issues.

Let’s consult David Lynch on this one...
