There’s a right way and a wrong way to confront someone you think is appropriating an aspect of your culture. And one student could find herself on the wrong side of things after a video went viral.

San Francisco State has launched an investigation after a video of a black student confronting a white student was posted online.

The young black woman apparently took issue with the white guy’s choice of hairstyle. In the video, she can be heard telling him that he is appropriating her culture. 

“You’re saying that I can’t have a hairstyle because of your culture? Why?” the man says.

“Because it’s my culture,” she says.

He then goes on to state that Egyptian people also wore dreads.

“Are you Egyptian? Nah, man, you’re not,” he says.

She then asks, “Wait, where’s Egypt? Tell me.”
