"Cultural Appropriation" at SF State University

Hat tip Vlad Tepes

San Francisco State University has a tradition of radical behavior going back almost 50 years. Here is the latest incident captured on video two days ago. In this scene, an African-American woman, who is reportedly a school employee, gets up close and personal with a white male student. His offense?


That is defined as when a member of one particular ethnic group (almost always a white American) "steals" an aspect of another (almost always non-white) ethnic group's culture. In this case, the white male student has some sort of braided hair. Apparently, in university culture, only black people can have braided hair. Got it?


(That may qualify as cultural appropriation.)

You can't put a price tag on a college education, Folks.

*Update: University is investigating incident.

The history of humanity is a history of cultural appropriation. The wheel, domestication of animals, agriculture, metal fabrication... Long live cultural appropriation!

You oughta buy a Milwaukee brand.

The most overrated beer in the world. Schlitz, Miller, Strohs. You can have it.

No, no, no. Those aren't made here any more. Cheaper to produce them overseas. There are some great new craft beers, or so the people who drink beer claim. And someone bearing the Pabst name has bought up the rights from the defunct company's assets and is starting over, small. Miller still runs a tourist joint down in the valley, but the beer making is a museum operation.

You can get Pabst Blue Ribbon out here. I forgot to list them as Milwaukee swill. Then again, the German flavor of Milwaukee has pretty much faded away-or has it?
