Personally I don't think it's a real thing.

er, yes, the concept of cultural appropriation is absolutely a real thing, there's no debating that. "cultural appropriation" is, by definition, simply just "adoption or use of elements of one culture by another", and there's no denying that exists.

the actual debate is whether or not it's a bad thing, and I believe that really depends on A. what is being appropriated and B. how it's being used.

Yeah, I should have been more clear. Obviously it is a thing, I should have said I don't think it's an "issue".

the degree to which it is an issue has certainly been blown out of proportion, but I do think legitimate issues with it exist.

I agree on that. Completely mistreating culture/being racist with it is an issue, but that one white guy who had dreads and was confronted for it was ridiculous

yeah, absolutely agree there. same with people who say white people listening to or performing hip-hop is cultural appropriation.

there's just some stuff that may have roots in a certain culture that has transcended it and become universal.
