Cultural appropriation is wrong
There is nothing inherently sacred about culture. Attempting to claim cultural appropriation does damage is valid, but only in the same way that one can argue that trying to appeal to a wider audience has ruined a piece of media.
Culture is molded by the circumstances in which a people lives, such as geography, climate, the actions of another people, etc. Culture is not something to be proud of or ashamed of, because one has no control over it. The only control one has is whether or not he/she will conform to that culture.
