"The Case for Contamination" written by a Ghanian and Princeton prof in today’s NYT Mag, suggests that the cries of "cultural imperialism" are misguided. Americans’ laments that you can’t travel overseas without hearing more American music on the radio are condescending. I find this angle of globalization super interesting, super important, and on the whole, a good thing.
