Plans “Afro-Themed” housing to mollify Black Lives Matter concerns. Wait, what?
Back in March, we blogged about a story from San Francisco State University that could only happen on one of today’s college campuses. A white male student was accosted by a young black woman who was also a student because he was wearing his hair in dreadlocks. The woman claimed this was a form of cultural appropriation.
At the time, I wrote:
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.
Here’s a video of the incident, in case you missed it:
San Francisco State University has apparently come up with a solution to this problem.

SFSU plans ‘Afro-themed’ housing in wake of dreadlock confrontation
San Francisco State University has revealed plans to establish “Afro-themed” floors in residence halls following a confrontation between students last year over “cultural appropriation.”
According to CBS San Francisco, school administrators are in the early stages of their plan to create living communities tailored specifically to African American students, which is apparently a response to demands from the Black Student Union for increased inclusivity, as well as the growing influence of the Black Lives Matter movement on college campuses.
Notably, SFSU made news earlier this year for a racially charged incident which showed a black female student verbally and physically assaulting a white male student simply because he had dreadlocks.
“We want to be pro-active responding to some of the issues that have been brought out by the Black Lives Matter movement,” university spokesman Jonathan Morales told CBS. “We want to work with our student leaders in the Black Student Union and other students of color organizations to make sure that our living and learning community here is inclusive.”
Although the dorms are tailored to black students, they are open to anyone who wishes to live in them.
So to recap, the solution to a progressive problem like cultural appropriation is…
