Cultural appropriation is the adoption or use of the elements of one culture by members of another culture. I believe this exists and I also believe it can be a positive thing. It can also be negative but I also believe that this negative connotation to the term is from an over-reaction from the modern twitter-verse.

It's not like anyone is saying "WE TAKING THIS....YOU CAN'T DO IT ANYMORE" they just making more money off it than if a black(POC) person did it.I don't think the individual who ndulges in the culture is bad(Justin, iggy,ect).There just expressing what they like but it does reveal how the general public/white America is biased and racist.

Kylie's not wrong for wanting big lips and ass but magazines and white men are wrong for perpetuating this idea that she's the first one to have done it.Espeacially when they made fun of black people for the same traits they now idolize.It's not the artist's fault tho

I really can't believe in it. For example, yes it is unfair how black women were called "greasy" and "dirty-looking" in the past for their dreads, but that's in the past now, and racism can be reported now. Saying a certain hairstyle is an act of STEALING ONE'S CULTURE is stupid. No white person will overtake you. Hell, by the 50s, white people will be minority in America! 

If someone wore another culture's outfit because it looks pretty... so what? If an entire nation starts doing such a thing, then yes, that is stealing a culture's identity and persona but who the fuck in their right mind would start a movement with 5 million other people to overhaul a culture? It's unrealistic, blasphemous, and won't ever happen.

So if someone's wears a kimono for example in a music video, no one is gonna start walking around Paris or Sydney or Dubai or Los Angeles or even Hawaii and start chanting they claim someone else's culture is theirs.

Social justice warriors break everything out of order, and no one except them cares about such things. Their impact is negligible, but shitty news outlets such as CNN choose to put titles in their headlines that always side with them.

To a degree yes 

but wearing your hair a certain way or liking a certain style or anything along those lines that are called cultural appropriation is just f-cking stupid. 

Let people live how they want. 

Let people like what they want. 

Let people express themselves how they want. 

Don't quote me saying "oh so someone can like child porn and rape and that's ok" like girl bye I won't even entertain it

Well, in the sense that cultural significance is erased when a part of that culture is "appropriated", and the meaning is redefined. Examples are when the Nazis appropriated the swastika from India, white nationalists appropriated the celtic cross etc. This is a bad thing obviously. 

Wearing braids or twerking isn't cultural appropriation, though.
