Cultural appropriation is wrong
Empires of all kinds have been mixing cultures for thousands of years, this is just the current iteration.
. Throughout history, it was common for people to like what others were doing and to try and emulation it. This is called cross enculturation.
America itself is "The Great Melting Pot" where people from any corner of the world can come to live their life as they see fit. That means they will share in the culture that we have while simultaneously sharing theirs. Our entire country is the result of massive cultural appropriation.
Just because something has been done, does not mean that it should be done. Empires of all kinds have had slavery, this does not justify slavery.
