Mostly it is a shaming tool to be used against whites, and particularly conservative whites for dressing, or in some way giving the perception that you are mimicking, in either a positive manner or negative manner, the habits or traditions of another culture. Never used against liberals, or persons of color. By inference, whites have no independent culture to be mimicked or appropriated.

However you will see the offended, wearing blue jeans, driving American cars, all the inventions brought to us by "White culture"..

Cultural appropriation is a made up offense socialist progressives can pull out of their hat when they have nothing else to be offended. They keep making up these reasons to be offended even more quickly than they can make up new gender names.

The ridiculous idea that to, for instance, to dress up in a Halloween costume like Day of the Dead skull make-up is somehow stealing something from, and disrespecting Latino culture. Or another example, someone posted on a Trip Advisor asking if would be seen as cultural appropriation by Vietnamese to buy and wear a conical hat while on vacation. Short answer given? They couldn't care less about it, and would be highly confused as to why you were worried about it in the first place.

When I was a kid we were encouraged to partake in other cultures. I have no idea why these people not having anything to do with cultures not one's own some how helps the world go round.
