Culture (/ˈkʌlər/) is the social behavior and norms found in human societies. Culture is considered a central concept in anthropology, encompassing the range of phenomena that are transmitted through social learning in human societies. Some aspects of human behavior, social practices such as culture, expressive forms such as art, music, dance, ritual, religion, and technologies such as tool usage, cooking, shelter, and clothing are said to be cultural universals, found in all human societies. The concept of material culture covers the physical expressions of culture, such as technology, architecture and art, whereas the immaterial aspects of culture such as principles of social organization (including practices of political organization and social institutions), mythology, philosophy, literature (both written and oral), and science comprise the intangible cultural heritage of a society.

It's of the utmost importance that everyone can respect every culture. But that can be difficult considering how many people, regardless of race, are not aware of how they can appropriate cultures that they did not grow up in. The name of the woman narrating this video is Akilah, her youtube channel is Smoothiefreak. In this video she sheds light on the issue of cultural appropriation focusing specifically on unfortunate (and yet true) events that occur where various minorities cultures are heavily appropriate during Halloween by white people. But that does not mean that a minority can't appropriate another minorities culture, b/c it is possible for either one to appropriate the others culture (e.g. Black person wearing native am. garments)
