I'm not saying it's a big deal to me, but you should make an effort to understand
Is that really an argument people make? The majority of society is not profiting from cultural appropriation. Pretty sure most people do understand why it can make all the people sensitive to it upset, but probably do not care. Especially, if their intentions are not exploitative.

Also, if some people really want to use such a lame argument wouldn't they also have to only purchase products from the people who created the product? White guy owns music store, can't sell culturally black music because he profits from it? Who does that benefit?

Cultural patents
