Good way to enrich your own culture that the Americans developed some unhealthy fixation with...

Actually, cultures that started de novo, without borrowing heavily from predecessors were the Chinese (Xia and before), Harappa (Indus Civilization), Sumer (but not so much Egypt: they took agriculture from the Fertile Crescent), Olmec and possibly some Andean Civilization. All the rest are really indebted to their predecessors. It is a good thing, as it allows customs, ideas, religions, cosine, tools, technologies, domesticated plants, crafts, traditions, philosophical ideas and more to survive when their parent cultures inevitably die. It is a way of not having to reinvent the wheel all the time, as well as to make our lives a bit more interesting and satisfying.

In Poland, our culture has even more mixed elements than in Brazil and way more mixed than in Western Europe, so I could be biased.

It's a bullshit made-up problem made by the same people who invented other bullshit made-up problems like the patriarchy, male priviledge or systemic racism.

Basically it is another excuse to prattle on about how whites are evil, it boils down to "If you're white, you cannot use things that are from non-white cultures", like the white boy who got bullied by a crazy black hag because "dreads are for blacks only", or the indian dude in Bill Nye show lecturing "white people" in cultural appropriation while wearing a blazer.

Funny because if this cultural appropriation bullshit was adopted into politics, it would mean the end of immigration and the deportation of everyone who is a non-majority from their countries into their "ancestor" countries, even if their family have been in the new country for multiple generations.

It would mean science and medicine being avaiable only to those of the same background as the ones who made it.
It would mean forcing people to adopt clothing styles based on their ancestry and not on their own choice
It would mean the end of speech since we would only be allowed to learn one languague, that of our ancestors
It would mean the end of trading since you cannot use what has not been obtained or developed by your people

Cultural Appropriation, if taken honestly means the end of diversity, which is funny coming from the diversity religious fanatics. But of course, cultural appropriation is only a problem if it's white people doing it.

Well, if you take the not so sane political movement , not the normal practice of all societies in history. Then yeah...

But it has a bright point: all Muslims have to give back mobiles, laptops, firearms, explosives, medicine, technology, including cars and planes... It was not them to invent that. No terrorism! Cultural Appropriation is great!
Assuming it applies to everyone. Then we will have a shitty world with no terrorism.
