As a Trekkie I can say without a doubt that Bruno Mars culturally appropriated Star Trek.

>Bruno Mars culturally appropriated Star Trek

Great link, I didn't know that video existed.

Still sad he's dead :-(

Stupid and ignorant argument. Nearly all Puerto Ricans are significantly black. And a fair number of Filipinos as well.

He's more black than Colin Powell, and probably about as black as Oprah.

Mars possibly has 0% white ancestry.

Critics: "White folks making Black music is not a new phenomenon."

His Trek video, which has always been my favorite and the only reason I know of this dude, is a helluva way to "appropriate" Star Trek.

How much Ashkenazi is Leonard Nimoy?

Nimoy was very actively Jewish and descended from Ukrainian Jews:
