None of that is unique to blacks, they just happen to be doing it currently while other groups did it historically (like dreadlocks which where worn by ancient Vikings, and Prussians, they where also found in the middle east and in asia). Quite frankly the whole notion is stupid, even if it was entirely unique to them (it isn't and I don't think anything is entirely unique to one group as we absorb parts of the other groups cultures we meet) it still would not be offensive. Might as well say that people who are not white can't use cars as whites invented them, or use most of modern technology and medicine for that matter (yet oddly enough you never see that argument being made do you?).

I'm African American, Cultural Appropriation is stupid really. I see where black people try to come from where if we do it it's typical or something but if another race does it it's cool; whatever. Regardless, we need to address that races can't own things that's retarded. People can wear and do whatever they please with themselves and who are you to tell them they can't? It's just a hairstyle, they like it so they are wearing it. Mind your fucking business and get out the way if you have nothing nice to say because no one wants to hear about how you're displeased with their choice of style. Next time you get a sew in don't feel some kind of way if another race says you're trying to be like them if you're always on someone else's back.
