Ok, my man, I understand where you are coming from, and I agree.
Cory Goldstein, a student at San Francisco State, was attacked by a black student because he chose to wear his hair with dreadlocks. We gave our opinion on that story yesterday. She had no right to push up on this young man and force her opinions and making him uncomfortable as it was his choice to do with himself whatever he wanted.
The New York Daily News reports:
White college student confronted over hair says dreadlocks don’t belong to the ‘colored community’s culture’
The white college student who argued with his black classmate about his hair said Wednesday that dreadlocks don’t belong to the “colored community’s culture.”
San Francisco State University student Cory Goldstein, 22, called Bonita Tindle a “b—h” just before the 46-second exchange captured on viral video Monday afternoon, according to a witness account cited by the Golden Gate Xpress, the school’s student newspaper.
Tindle could be heard in the video responding by telling Goldstein he can’t wear dreads “because it’s my culture.” Yet Goldstein, an environmental science major, told the Xpress he didn’t commit cultural appropriation because Vikings, Egyptians and even some people in the Victorian era had dreads.
“It’s not even a part of the, like, colored community’s culture, like it may be ingrained in it but it’s ingrained in so many cultures other than that,” Goldstein said. “It’s everywhere. It’s not something that is just part of the colored community.”
Do you agree with this young man? Would you want someone of another culture walking up to you claiming you didn’t have the right to wear certain clothes, drive your type of car, pray to whoever you prayed to? This is a bully tactic from someone who thought they could impose their will on a perceived weaker minded individual, and it didn’t work.
