Its natural to want to hold our African traditions and wear as close as possible. We Africans are like a click and we don’t want to allow outsiders (blacks). But some fail to realize that black Americans are a part of our heritage. Stolen from the motherland and forced on mainly American and South American soil, black people are originally African. So to say they are appropriating is false. They are unfortunately rid of knowledge about their origin in Africa and desire to take part in our culture, I see nothing wrong with that.
