Now I know that movies, arts & video games are always going to be the target of cultural appropriation & it seems to me that some people are just so hurt. That they are stealing from others cultures & making money off their culture.
This is just a stupid argument to begin with. Look it films like Star wars & all the cultures that it had to had to take from just to it feel like a full universe? I'm not that shocked that most of the species are based off some part of the world's culture or history.
Some of this people have been losing their minds for years & have gotten nowhere on there stance. As normal people have just move on with the real world.
You know if we can't used other people's culture for inspiration on a story for a character. Then when why should we have to do so much research just to make sure people are getting look & feel right in the some of these period piece. Can we just enjoy some good entertainment?
