White girls on campus guilty of “racist” accessorizing: Hoop earrings now fashion faux pas

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

It’s hard enough for women to avoid fashion faux pas with the way styles come and go but now in our politically correct world, you also have to worry about wearing something that might be considered “racist”.

I’m not talking about donning a Washington Redskins ball cap but rather, hoop earrings.

The latest descent into madness? Hispanic students at Pitzer College in California staged a protest about white girls on campus wearing hoop earrings, chanting, “White girl, take OFF your hoops!”.

They even painted that message on a wall because apparently, Caucasian females wearing hoop earrings is yet another example of “cultural appropriation”.

Not to be outdone, women of colour at Pitzer are also miffed that women of non-colour are wearing winged eyeliner and gold nameplate necklaces, apparently culturally-appropriating stuff that belongs to black and brown folk.

Never mind that hoop earrings date back to ancient Rome and Greece, but even if that weren’t so, are loony lefties now suggesting that if a person of a certain race invents something, then only other members of that particular race are entitled to its benefits?

If so, life's going to get a lot tougher for black and brown folk. I’ve done a quick inventory of inventions by Caucasians and it’s one hell of a list.

So to those colourful kids at Pitzer, if you all wanna play hardball, then so be it.

You keep those hoop earrings, but kindly refrain from making use of any Caucasian-created technology that makes life so enjoyable because then YOU’D be guilty of “cultural appropriation.”

@jay Kelly…nobody is obliged to like , approve of or tollerate anything they do not like, approve of or find intollerable. It’s simply none of the government’s fucking business.

And if some woman who was not black decided to conceal the fact she was wearing hoop ear rings under a hijab (when she was not in fact moslem) which SJW legally non-existant jurisdiction would that fall under?

Cultural appropriation aught to be tollerated….otherwise NOBODY who is not born and raised a moslem would ever be allowed to convert to Islam would they? So Justin bin Castro al Outremonti committed cultural appropriation didn’t he….or was that a real conversion? And if so….you know the outrage that would have happened if Harper had made a motion against ’christophobia" even if numerous members of his caucus gave testimonials about the slights and insults they received on that score.

“It’s like the old saying for a wife … “What is mine, is mine, what is yours, is mine.””
So, you’ve lived that horror-show too? And they tell us they want “equality”? I’d love to have the “equality” my ex-wife had.

Not to mention the smart phone they’re tweeting on…

Did Jay invent the brain fart or is he culturally appropriating?

Jay Kelly when you say bigotry you are only speaking for yourself.

As a gay male, David Menzies supposes himself in a good position to criticize American men and women who come across as “odd”.
On a forum like this people feel free to express the full bounty of bigotry: against Canadian tolerance, against Islam, against Catholicism in all its forms, against liberalism, against Danes in Alberta, against Ontario liberals.
David Menzies is in good company. He should keep up the good work.

The worst form of cultural appropriation is appointing one’s self the agent of another culture’s grievances.

Don’t anyone tell these girls who invented peanut butter. Don’t want to be without that. God bless George Washington Caver.

Black girls…..take off your dresses and skirts and jeans and wear grass skirts and bones in your noses.

When someone is always offended; it generally means they are looking closely for something to offend them; whether it’s rational or not. If these same people had something meaningful to do with their time, I doubt their attitude would be self-righteous and indignant. Get busy with living life and making positive contributions! Enough of the senseless marching….protesting such trivial things. Hoop earrings today, something else tomorrow.

Hey, they shouldn’t use cell phones or Intel based computers as they are, oh, Israeli developments. Also, digital photo editing software, also originally developed in Israel. By their way of thinking, only Israelis and Jews should be able to use these items.

Aspirin, too, invented by a German Jew. Hmm. Have a headache? So, if you aren’t a white Jew, drop a large rock on your foot to distract yourself from the pain between your ears!

Kerosine? Those white Canadians… Damn. Or the attaché case and luggage with a handle should only be used by Canadians, otherwise you are appropriating our culture.

If you are a pilot and have to wear a flight suit, well, again, a white Canadian invention, just like the delta shaped fixed wing plane.

Printing press for books and making those oh-so-special flyers and radical posters, well, a white Swede invented those, so only white Swedes should benefit from that invention. Then again, we are talking about university snowflakes who may not believe in reading and only repeating what they have been told.

AC electricity: white invention. Television: something they won’t be able to expect their silly protests to be shown on. Internet? Oh no! Them there white folks.

Marconi and radios? No more hip-hop on the radio (thankfully!).

Algebra and geometry? Those damn while Greeks!

The list goes on.

I understand the need for people to want to stand for something to feel their life has meaning. That being said isn’t there something slightly more important you would want read at your eulogy or written on your epitaph or at least not such an embarrassing reminder that you stood for so little and were willing to oppress others in your pursuit of a fictional inequality that was a product of your own unexamined bigotry.

These people are insasiable with their constant demands. They have mastered the art of racist bullying for political gain. Isn’t that what Hitler did to the Jews? Publicly blame the them for everything, based on a false narritive, and then take away their rights, and freedoms, and exterminate them? What an ugly scenario, when you single out one group, and then publicly attack them. This is mob bullying for intimidation purposes. I do think that most of these people protesting everything, are mentally unstable. It’s too bad that shrinks are now in on the game. Is their ultimate purpose the extermination of the white race?

What next? STOP APPROPRIATING MY HIPPIE CULTURE, YOU BEASTS!
Isn’t it easy to tell who the #Bullies and #MeanGirls are? Telling other people what they can and cannot wear?

I #DEFY Mean Girls. Always have. Got beat up for it in grade school. Doesn’t matter. Bullies CAN’T BE ALLOWED TO WIN. ANYTIME. ANYWHERE. ANY TOPIC.

People of color.

How funny.

I guess white is not a color.

The term “people of color” is racist – against white folks

LOL

Schools and universities were also a honky invention. So ship out bro.

“You keep those hoop earrings, but kindly refrain from making use of any Caucasian-created technology that makes life so enjoyable because then YOU’D be guilty of “cultural appropriation.””

Particularly personal tech devices and the internet, then we would not have to listen to these peoples’ and their SJW supporters’ continual whinging. Think of the peace and contentment the world would experience, true peace in our time.

Oh, but David, it is acceptable for those of color to appropriate things invented by the non-color folk, but not the other way around. It’s like the old saying for a wife … “What is mine, is mine, what is yours, is mine.”
