Stop the cultural appropriation

An Indian-born British writer dares to say:
For this is an essay in defense of cultural appropriation.

In Canada last month, three editors lost their jobs after making such a defense.
United Nations Wants to Outlaw “Cultural Appropriation” Worldwide:
The UN wants to expand intellectual property regulations to include cultural entities and concepts, such as clothing, dances, arts, medicines, etc. The UN’s efforts would allow for legal action to be taken by minority groups against those who supposedly steal or monetize a piece of their culture.

The United Nations has been making efforts to outlaw “cultural appropriation” for over fifteen years.
Maybe this idea is not so crazy, and we should start by stopping non-whites from appropriating white culture. The next time you see some non-white or MENA guy driving a car or using a cell phone, tell him that UN policy considers him a thief.
