A whiny liberal student is on trial for physically attacking two basketball players after a basketball game at Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass.
According to Carmen Figueroa, one of the women she attacked was guilty of “cultural appropriation” for wearing braids while white:
The victims of the alleged assault are members of the Central Maine Community College women’s basketball team.
Figueroa, 20, approached the players after the game and demanded that at least one player remove braids from her hair, according to court records.
Figueroa apparently decided the braids amounted to “cultural appropriation” because a Central Maine player who had the braids was white.
The white Central Maine player with braided hair opted not remove the braids and tried to leave the building.
In response, police say, Figueroa attacked her by pulling her braided hair so hard she fell to the ground. Once the unidentified player was on the ground, Figueroa allegedly kicked her and stepped on her.
A second Central Maine [player] tried to intervene, but Figueroa was having none of it. Figueroa “grabbed her by the head and threw her to the ground,” according to court documents obtained by the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
Court documents indicate that Figueroa screamed “swears and racial slurs” during her attack.
Figueroa appears to have been a spectator at the basketball game. She’s not on the roster for the 2016-17 Hampshire College women’s basketball team, but a college spokesman confirmed that she is enrolled at the school.
Speaking of the school, Hampshire College is an uppity private institution that charges $64,940 for a single year of tuition, fees, and room and board. It’s also a radical leftist breeding ground, boasting no majors and no grades. According to their academic philosophy, they use a “narrative evaluation system” because it “eliminates competition, enhancing Hampshire’s collaborative learning community.”
There’s nothing more damaging to the liberal psyche than competition.
But Figueroa is in good company. Another Hampshire SJW made headlines for going nuclear at a Milo Yiannopoulos event last April. Her real name is Cora Segal, but you probably know her as Trigglypuff.
This isn’t the first time a white person has been attacked for how they chose to wear their hair, either. Last March, a black female student at San Francisco State University attacked a white male student for wearing dreadlocks.
