Cultural appropriation is wrong
Labeling cultural appropriation as integrating cultures sugar coats the way in which certain cultures have historically been 'adopted' by means of violence and force, not willingly.
The idea that "a culture" can set a boundary, require that there is such a thing as the revealed opinion of a whole culture, and not the heterogeneous ideas of each person.
This notion that the "owner" culture of a cultural "item" can set boundaries would requires that it is possible to define cultural "items", and their owners, in a unique way.
