Do we really need more evidence of racism rearing its ugly head?
Truth is, everybody is a racist....its a part of our psyche....
Some can control their urges better than others that's all....what a crock of divisive crap.....
You are ALL racists.....its natural....the rest is all social engineering ....

Aside from her essentially assaulting this kid, she's actually not 100% correct about the cultural appropriation part.
This is an unfortunate case of a person who is lacking in subject matter expertise combined with a hyper-vigilant personality.
I support most claims of cultural appropriation and believe it is often a very valid complaint but dreadlocks have never belonged to her culture exclusively.

This black woman walks to a white student with dreadlocks, and confronts him about having dreadlocks.
In her view it's not "cultural appropiate" for a white guy to wear dreadlocks.
He responds in a good way, tries to walk away but she holds him back, even accusing him of touching her, while clearly holding him.
He tries to walk away again.
At that moment the woman realises she is filmed and attacks the camera.
In my books a racial assault, false accusations and another assault on the camera guy.
The weird thing; The woman works at the SFSU University (her name is already online, i will not post it) AND she works as a videographer.
I am very confused by the actions of the woman. It seems she is really racist and aggressive plus playing the victim at the same time?
Online forums are running wild, asking for her to get fired.
What's your take on it?
Was it racism?
Should she be fired?
Why are we hearing more and more silly stories from american campuses like this?
And as always: keep it civilised. Thanks
