WASHINGTON, D.C.—Ilhan Omar has been accused of marrying her brother, a serious allegation. But even more serious is the allegation that by so doing, she may have appropriated Alabama culture.
“Ilhan Omar is a disgrace to our country since she married her—hey, wait a minute, that’s our thing!” said one man in Alabama. “Stop appropriating Southern culture!”
“Appropriating 👏 Alabama 👏 culture 👏 is 👏 not 👏 OK 👏!” wrote one social justice advocacy group on Twitter. “Not only do Southerners have to contend with non-Southerners saying ‘y’all’ and drinking sweet tea, but now their marital practices are being colonialized by cis POC women.”
Omar was also spotted driving a 1969 Dodge Charger with a confederate flag on the top.
