From Yahoo News: San Francisco State University is investigating an on-campus incident in which a black woman confronted a white man for wearing dreadlocks.

Help me understand this.

 

What I thought I understood was that making fun of a culture is what’s clearly wrong. In other words, dressing up as another culture for a laugh or for Halloween.

 

If a person wears their hair any given way, mohawk, dreadlocs, up, down, permed, or straightened – that seems like a fair choice in today’s multiculture and mixed world.

 

If we start to police dreadlocs, where do we stop?

 

Couldn’t we then also debate suntan lotion, colored contacts, and every piece of clothing.
