If protecting cultures is a good thing, clearly European countries should deport a significant majority of their middle eastern migrants to protect European cultures. Getting sick of seeing more kebab restaurants than non-kebab restaurants.

Well, depending on european country, not only the middle eastern migrants, but you get the point ^)

so if the usa takes something from another culture because they think its fun thats cultural appropriation and thats wrong, but if another country takes smthn from usa thats usa forcing their culture on those poor other countrys, can usa ever win?

why cant we just take fun stuff from other cultures and enjoy it without it having to be some sjw issue?

Spooky, scary racist men
Send shivers down your spine
Shrieking skulls will shock your soul
Seal your doom tonight

Spooky, scary racist men
Speak with such a screech
You'll shake and shudder in surprise
When you hear these racist shriek

We're so sorry, racist man
You're so misunderstood
You only want to socialize
But I don't think we should

'Cause spooky, scary racist men
Shout startling shrilly screams
They'll sneak in from their radio shows
And just won't leave you be

Spirits super-racified
Are shy, what's all the fuss?
But bags of slurs seem so unsafe
It's semi-serious

Spooky, scary racist men
Are silly all the same
They'll smile and scrabble slowly by
And drive you so insane

Sticks and stones will break your bones
They seldom let you snooze
Spooky, scary racist men
Will wake you with a white supremacist rally.

Besides I think in Europe we have a different attitude towards culture. When someone adopts my culture and does something new, creative and brilliant with it, I am not jealous that I didn't figure it out and they did, to me it is a sign of appreciation to show someone genuinely likes your culture so much they wish they could be part of your culture. In turn I like all the different kind of festivals, events and cultures this world has, they are so unique and brilliant and valuable in their own ways. This world would be awfully dull without them.

@Galfisk food is fine. Sadly culture is way more diverse then that. Moslim parents demand that their children get a day of with the sugar festival, which native children wont get free. (adding more holidays just to please everyone would make way to many days off). Giving the sugar fest a official status for everyone means that a existing holiday must be removed. In the netherlands we cant enjoy sinterklaas (dutch christmas for children) anymore because people start protesting that its is rascist. Freedom of speech is also under fire because someone might find something offensive to their culture.

Cultures clash and that means that one will overcome the other destroying culture instead of "enriching" it.

"I feel so bad about my culture being forced on you" --- said no American ever...

Your culture, Sister America? Halloween is a re-purposed Celtic harvest festival. The name is a shortening of All Hallows Eve, the day before All Saints Day, a holy day of obligation for Catholics. It's no more 'American' than Christmas or Easter.
