That inauguration poem, apparently a Catalan speaking bloke isn’t the right person to translate it into Catalan:
“It is a very complicated subject that cannot be treated with frivolity,” said Obiols, a resident of Barcelona.
“But if I cannot translate a poet because she is a woman, young, black, an American of the 21st century, neither can I translate Homer because I am not a Greek of the eighth century BC. Or could not have translated Shakespeare because I am not a 16th-century Englishman.”
Having a black who did speak Catalan would, of course, be cultural appropriation….
