“You have no right to tell me what I can wear”
When the girl asks her friend if he has some scissors to cut the youngster’s hair, Goldstein replies: “You’re saying I can’t have a hairstyle because of your culture?”
The girl responds: “Yes, because it’s my culture.”
Firing back, the man replies: “Do you know it was in Egyptian culture? Are you Egyptian? You have no right to tell me what I can wear.”
She then responds by repeatedly asking him where Egypt is before blocking the man’s path as he attempts to leave the argument.
As Goldstein tells his tormentor to stop touching him he barks: “I don’t need your disrespect.”
The girl then lunges for the person filming the scene and orders them to stop before the video cuts out.
Goldstein took to Facebook following the argument and wrote: “I just got physically assaulted because I have dreadlocks woe.” He later added: “I’m not filing any criminal charges against the girl who harassed me yesterday. I did file a formal campus police report and I decided to let the education system deal with her.’”
A university spokesperson said: “San Francisco State University promotes the rights of the campus community to engage in free speech, but does not condone behaviour that impedes the safety or well-being of others.”
