% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is the absurdity that America’s colleges and universities have become. They are no longer institutions of higher learning, and have not been for a long time. These ridiculous hoop earring Nazis learned this nonsense from their professors. America’s colleges and universities are radioactive deserts of leftist indoctrination.

“White College Women Told to Stop Wearing Hoop Earrings Because It’s ‘Racist,’” by Jillian Kay Melchior, Heat Street, March 8, 2017:

Two students at Pitzer College have demanded white women stop wearing hoop earrings, claiming that they “belong to the black and brown folks who created the culture.”

The student newspaper, the Claremont Independent, reported yesterday that a message spray-painted on the college’s free-speech wall said, “White Girl, take off your hoops!!!”

In a campus-wide email, Alegria Martinez of the Latinx Student Union elaborated on the message, saying she painted it with other women of color who were “tired and annoyed with the reoccuring [sic] theme of white women appropriating styles.”

Martinez said that hoop earrings come “from a historical background of oppression and exclusion,” and that they are worn, along with winged eyeliner and lip liner, as “an everyday act of resistance, especially here at the Claremont Colleges.”

Jacquelyn Aguilera, who will not graduate for another two years, also presumes that she has the right to say who can and cannot wear hoop earrings.

“If you didn’t create the culture as a coping mechanism for marginalization, take off those hoops,” Aguilera wrote in an email to her fellow students. “If your feminism isn’t intersectional take off those hoops, if you try to wear mi cultura when the creators can no longer afford it, take off those hoops, if you are incapable of using a search engine and expect other people to educate you, take off those hoops, if you can’t pronounce my name or spell it … take off those hoops/ I use ‘those’ instead of ‘your’ because hoops were never ‘yours’ to begin with.”
