Cultural Appropriation

Is what the Left classifies as “cultural appropriation” really cultural appropriation? What is cultural appropriation according to Leftist “politically correct”? Well, you are not supposed to wear Indian, sorry, American Native, clothes for Halloween unless you are an American Native, or dress up like a Japanese woman in your music video unless you are a Japanese woman (or perhaps a Japanese transvestite?). You are not supposed to go into the Mexican food restaurant business if you are not Mexican. Does this mean that if you are from Central America or South America you are also not allowed to go into the Mexican food restaurant business? You see, they do not really specify the rules very much at all. Would the Left get upset if a Chinese person dressed up like a Japanese person, or if a Japanese person dressed up like a Chinese person or if a Korean dressed up like a Vietnamese, or a Vietnamese dressed up like a Korean? Would these “politically correct” Leftists even know the difference? Would they even be able to tell the difference between someone from Cambodia from someone from Hong Kong? Would they be able to tell the difference between someone from Saudi Arabia or someone from Iran apart? And what about white people? Is it inappropriate for an American of German heritage to dress up in a Kilt? How far do these silly rules go or take us? Surely the communist Leftists have not really thought all of this out. It is simply their divisive way to try and separate people who are supposed to be UNITED (of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA)!  In fact, I see their actions as racist or them being prejudiced!
