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.

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.
