What is cultural appropriation?

I’m going to keep this post short and simple. I would also like to iterate that I am merely trying to start a harmless exchange of opinions.

I want someone to explain to me exactly what cultural appropriation is, and what it means to them.

I have a hard time believing it even exists. Is imitation not the sincerest form of flattery? If someone of another race dresses in your culture’s traditional clothing, for example, why is that bad? I can almost guarantee that person is not doing it because they think your traditional clothing is stupid.

Can’t we all share and love other cultures?
