The left on college campuses has targeted white students for the phantom crime of cultural appropriation. They claim that Caucasians have no culture, and everything is racist because it has been stolen from a former European colony.
Besides the fact that this is blatantly untrue, it also has normalized hatred among campus bodies. People are accused of cultural appropriation based upon the way they take pictures of their food, what jewelry they wear, and how they do their hair.
A Hampshire College student named Carmen Figueroa went to court on Friday facing charges that she assaulted a member of the Central Maine Community College women’s basketball team for wearing braids in her hair. Figueroa asked the player before the attack to change her hairstyle because it was a symbol of cultural appropriation.
According to court documents obtained by the Daily Hampshire Gazette, Figueroa initiated the fight as the other girl was trying to leave the building. Another Hampshire student pulled the girl’s braids, causing her to fall to the ground.
Once on the ground, Figueroa started to kick and step on the player.
“Another Maine player attempted to protect her fallen teammate, but Figueroa ‘grabbed her by the head and threw her to the ground,'” court documents continued.
As a coach tried to break up the fight, Figueroa screamed anti-white slurs and attempted to punch the Maine student a few more times. Figueroa pleaded not guilty in court.
