14. The problem is that the very idea of "cultural appropriation" contains racist definitions.

If a set of things "belongs" to a race, then that must mean another set of things doesn't.

It must also mean that racist trolls who go after people for "acting (insert other race)" are somehow justified.

Styles are an individual choice, and a separate topic from the matter of ethnic identity you raise. Someone who claims to be something they're not is lying, and that's a meaningful fact to the people they lie to. But the idea that a person's race circumscribes what kind of clothes and hairstyles they're allowed to wear, what kind of music they're allowed to listen to or make, etc. is laughably racist and backward.
