If you’ve heard of stone soup, you’re probably thinking about the fable where hungry wanderers trick locals into sharing their food. But, the real stone soup is more celebration than deprivation, and it’s alive and well in Oaxaca, Mexico. And, it has a long and legendary story of its own.
Japanese-Americans, Japanese residents in the United States and their supporters counter-protested at the museum and on social media in vain. Counter-protesters pointed out that very few of the protesters were Japanese, and that they had no right to dictate what counted as racism or cultural appropriation against Japanese or Japanese-Americans. They complained that the protesters had chosen the wrong event to protest against with their parochial identity politics agenda.
