He says it’s cultural appreciation. She says it’s cultural appropriation.
A confrontation between three San Francisco State University students about a hairstyle was caught on camera on Monday and sparked a debate online about the extent of how far political correctness should go.
In the incident, a white, male student identified as Cory Goldstein is talking to a black, female student who asks her friend whether he has scissors, presumably to cut off Goldstein’s dreadlocks.
“You’re saying that I can’t have a hairstyle because of your culture? Why?” Goldstein asked.
The woman, who was handing out flyers for the student government body, Associated Students, Inc., responds:
“Yeah, because it’s my culture. You know what locs mean.”
