Cultural appropriation is wrong
Cultural appropriation robs the majority communities of aspects of their identity since cultural events replace each other in importance.
Participating in cultural events that may not be your own only increases the importance of that culture, and creates better awareness of it as it spreads through different social groups.
Cultural appropriation robs minority communities of their identities because a majority group chooses what aspect of the other cultures they want portray, making other aspects of that community's culture obsolete.
It cannot rob the majority of aspects of their identity when it is the majority that perpetuates cultural appropriation in the first place. Therefore, it is self-afflicted.
