If someone is dressed as a clown while dancing authentic Egyptian belly dance, what would you call that? It may be unappealing, but it's still a clown belly dance, like it or not. Fantasy goes without saying sometimes.
I don't like the term "white", yet, it's used all of the time and accepted. Although, I don't think people who use it are racist because it's not used in a derogatory sense. The N word was commonly used in a derogatory sense and this is common knowledge. I have never heard anyone personally use the G word in a derogatory manner nor do I know anyone who thinks being a gypsy is a negative thing. The G word is not commonly used nowdays as a derogatory term, the N word is. Even if someone used the N word unknowingly, that wouldn't make them a racist. Ignorant to the word and it's history, yes.
Too much politicing in dance takes away from its purpose.
