DAILYKENN.com -- Dreadlocks are a passive form of oppression that convey racism when sported by white people. In short, dreadlocks are cultural appropriation.
Cultural appropriation is a concept concocted by the far left to reinforce their fake Marxism dogma: White people are the oppressive bourgeoisie class and all others are the oppressed proletariat.
There is a problem. White people do not oppress non white people. Consequently, cultural Marxism must invent fake oppression to make its case. Cultural appropriation — along with white privilege, micro-aggressions, and other such silliness — fill the bill.
Cultural appropriation can be confusing. When a white man decides to become a transvestite, the argument could be made that he is appropriating female culture. No one makes the argument.

An aspiring Montreal comedian has been told he cannot take part in shows at a university bar because his dreadlocks are a form of cultural appropriation.
The Coop les Recoltes, a bar and solidarity co-operative at the Universite du Quebec a Montreal, confirmed on Facebook its decision to exclude Zach Poitras, who is white, because of his hairstyle. Poitras, denied a spot at the Snowflake Comedy Club and another evening of “engaged humour,” declined comment on the situation.
The bar is operated by the UQAM branch of the Public Interest Research Group, which focuses on environmental and social issues. In its Facebook statement, the co-operative says its mission is to be “a safe space, free of relationships of oppression.” It describes cultural appropriation as a form of violence.
“We will not tolerate any discrimination or harassment within our spaces,” it says. It defines cultural appropriation as when “someone from a dominant culture appropriates symbols, clothing or hairstyles that come from historically dominated cultures.”
It adds that wearing dreadlocks is “a privilege” for a white person, whereas a black person with the same hair “is going to find himself refused access to job opportunities or spaces (apartments, schools, parties, sports competitions, etc.)”
Even if the person wearing dreadlocks is not racist himself, the group adds, the chosen hairstyle “conveys racism.” It calls cultural appropriation “a form of passive oppression, a privilege to be deconstructed and in particular a manifestation of ordinary racism.”
