What the hell is the difference between acculturation and "cultural appropriation"?

Acculturation is different from appropriation because (at least this is how I think of it or would explain it) the first is about sharing culture and spreading knowledge. The second one is another culture claiming rights over something that was developed by a culture not of their own.

Such as, say that we found life on another planet and they had this really neat way of dressing, then we killed them all off and stole their style from them and said that we invented it and it wasn’t originally from planet X. That’s an extreme example, BUT that’s cultural appropriation.

My point being what what idiots on here complain about (and oddly enough it’s mostly white girls) it’s appropriation and they need to fucking stop. You know what kind of people don’t like the sharing and enjoying of cultures? The NAZIS didn’t like that. The KKK doesn’t like that, but for some reason it’s totally cool for black people to not want to share culture? This site is a cesspool of ignorance.

It’s cultural isolation, that’s what people on this website want

Couldn’t agree more.
