Cultural appropriation is wrong
If something is white-washed or "westernized", for example, it is often easier to popularise, and those who popularise it get the credit, rather that the creators.
Westernized or whitewashed versions can create greater awareness of the original. Not everyone will look into the original, of course, but at least some will, and they might otherwise never have known about it.
Well, it's a fact that Western European civilization is clearly dominant on Earth at this era. Basically all modern civilization is Western European-based for the last few centuries. So, it more like a unavoidable nuisance, than the malign intent.
