Cultural Appropriation Police: Black woman attacks white student for wearing dreadlocks

Cultural Appropriation Police: Black woman attacks white student for wearing dreadlocks

Incident Under Investigation at San Francisco State

An incident at San Francisco State University captured on a video which is quickly going viral, shows a white male student being confronted by a young black woman who is apparently also a student.

The young man is wearing his hair in dreadlocks and the woman tells him this is a form of cultural appropriation, a message he clearly doesn’t want to hear.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that the incident is being investigated and provides a transcript:

San Francisco State University Investigating ‘Cultural Appropriation’ Incident Captured on Video

San Francisco State University is investigating a spat captured on video during which a black female student physically confronted a white male student over the “cultural appropriation” suggested by his hairstyle.

A spokesman for the university said that school police were called to the scene of the incident, which was captured on video Monday afternoon…

The female student appeared to confront the male student about his hair, according to the video. “You’re saying that I can’t have a hairstyle because of your culture? Why?” the male student, who sported dreadlocks, asked her.

“Because it’s my culture,” the female student, who is black, said.

“Do you know it was in Egyptian culture? Are you Egyptian? Nah man, you’re not,” the male student, who is white, responded.

“Are you Egyptian?” the female student, who was accompanied by another individual, countered.

“No, but it doesn’t matter,” the male student said.

“Where’s Egypt? Tell me,” the female student asked.

As the male student tried to walk away from the confrontation, the woman followed him, standing in the way of the staircase and hitting his arm.

“You have no right to tell me what I cannot wear,” he said.

“Where’s Egypt?” the female student pressed. The male student then tried to exit by mounting a staircase, but the female student continued to block him.

“Stop touching me right now,” the male student said. The female student then grabbed hold of his arm and pulled him down the stairs toward her, saying “Come back!”

“Get off me!” he said.

The female student then appeared to threaten the male student, saying, “You put your hands on me—you’ll learn.”

“I don’t need your disrespect,” the male student replied, finally escaping his peer’s grasp.

The video, which was filmed by a bystander, abruptly cut off after the female student asked the videographer why he was taping the incident and then hit the camera with her hand.

Watch the video below:

One of the most interesting aspects of this situation is the male student’s insistence that the young woman has no right to tell him what to wear.

Millennials love being free to do what they want but since so many of them have signed onto the progressive campus culture of social justice they have essentially signed their freedom away to the collective.

When more students like this one get mugged by reality in this way, we might actually see a turning of the tide on campus.

As soon as more students realize that they too will be forced to live by these ridiculous rules, and that their freedom will be restricted, they will reject it.

That will be a good thing. For everyone.

“…finally escaping his peer’s grasp.”

His peer? Hardly.

My daughter’s college has a grievance board. The good news is that for now at least when people post things like being offended by guys wearing sombreros or kids holding a luau – the reaction by the rest of the students is still – “are you kidding me?” The trick is to keep that majority from being silenced. I keep telling my daughter “do not let them intimidate you”.

This girl needs more training.

She didn’t even mention his white male privilege.

She clearly has never been introduced to the concept of the melting pot here in America.

Why is she living in the U.S., and why is she attending school?

Doesn’t she know she’s “appropriating” other, non-African cultures by doing those things? And I’m guessing she uses cell phones and computers and drives a car too, all of which are also “appropriations” of non-African cultures. As is wearing pants (and isn’t that also a gender “appropriation” too?).

As a committed feminist, I would have knocked her on her ass when she grabbed me.

Are black women who chemically straighten their hair also guilty of “cultural appropriation”?

I probably should keep my mouth shut, but sometimes I just have to be a smarta**

I wonder why the white kid didn’t suggest that the other student should lose her coat, shirt, pants – cultural appropriations from Europe.

I think I understand how people that have gotten the short end of the stick can feel like things like this are taking what few things they have that are uniquely theirs.

In this case the woman is wrong. Yes, there are African ties to dreadlocks, especially through the Jamaican reggae and Rastafari movements, but dreadlocks were cultural expression of a wide spectrum of cultures.

Ultimately, this type of cultural conflict is a expression of what I believe to be increasing racial tensions.

Cultural appropriation always takes place at the intersection of cultures. It is possible to mock or deride other cultures, but in the case of dreads it seems to be a person who finds a significant personal identification with the culture whose hair style they have adopted.

One more smarta** remark:
Perhaps the white student does not identify with the race they were assigned at birth.


    I’d like to go even farther: Suggest that she stop using all the technological creations of those evil white Europeans, from cell phones to antibiotics.

    Good effort, Mr. Martel, but take it from a professional smartass – if you type ‘smarta**’, you aren’t a smartass.

    99% of the time, kids, white or black, don’t wear dreadlocks for reasons of cultural expression. They wear them to be cool.

I don’t know, but the whole thing seems staged and fake to me.
The lady is smiling like a bad actress most of the time. The white kid is making these hip-hop movements as he speaks. He seems to be dancing rather than arguing. He is a caricature, not a real person.

If this is real, things are really messed up in “higher” education.

    You made a good point. So much of what we see these days are “hoaxes”. If you follow the link, there’s an embed of a local news report where they interview dreadlock boy. He appears more legit in that interview.

    I think the video is genuine. Her smile is of the mocking, even menacing, variety. She thought she really had him with, “Where’s Egypt?”. BTW, Egypt is about 500 miles from the nearest Greek island, and about 4,000 miles from the jungle she came from.

      tarheelkate in reply to Char Char Binks. | March 30, 2016 at 1:33 pm

      Yup. If she knew any Egyptians she’d know that they don’t consider themselves “African.” Not until you get down to Nubia are there people having physical characteristics we, or she, would think of as “African,” that is, black.

        Sadly, many American blacks are utterly misinformed about ancient Egypt. They have had their heads filled with all sorts of “afrocentric” foolishness–dare I say lies?

      Milhouse in reply to Char Char Binks. | March 30, 2016 at 3:45 pm

      I’d have answered “The Middle East”. She’s probably bought into the Black American myth that since Egypt is geographically on the African continent the ancient Egyptians were black.

      Such a smile is characteristic of a certain kind of Social Justice bully, indicating the pleasure they get from harassing and assaulting people in the name of a fake virtue.

Charles Martel | March 30, 2016 at 9:40 am

Looks like battery to me.

I’m not a Trump supporter but I’m sure that the news that is so focused on Corey Lewandowski grabbing the reporter’s arm would surely be interested in this video.

If she really hates cultural appropriation, this would probably cause her brain to explode.

If that ignorant twit lives in anything but a mud and grass hut, that’s cultural appropriation. If she drives a car, that’s cultural appropriation. Those jeans she’s wearing? Yup, cultural appropriation. There’s NOTHING in that silly, irrelevant twit’s life that doesn’t involve “cultural appropriation.”

Good grief! With all the real problems in this world, we have a jerk on the loose because of a hair style. If there is any institutional racism then it is due to having minorities marinating in a deck of race cards. Whites are not the real problem. They have become the scapegoat for all those duped by the race baiters.

A few days in the slammer and getting expelled from school should fix her attitude.
He should insist on pressing charges.

I live in Europe. It is common to see white men and women in dreadlocks. It’s nasty, but it’s their choice. Get a grip.

I noticed right away she was wearing clothes.

Henry Hawkins | March 30, 2016 at 6:14 pm

What ever happened to ‘immitation is a form of flattery’?

His problem is you can’t make dreadlocks look good without proper accessories. Add a sombrero and a bone through the nose and then you have something for New York fashion week.

buckeyeminuteman | March 31, 2016 at 2:05 pm

I hope all they social justice warriors of color go back to wearing grass skirts, loin clothes and coconuts. After all, pantaloons and button-up shirts are very Eurocentric. Quit trying to appropriate somebody else’s culture, it’s offensive.

She needs to Google up Egypt DNA … Lol
