A black college student told her white classmate he can’t wear dreadlocks “because it’s my culture” in an argument captured on video Monday at San Francisco State University.

Campus police, who were called during the tense encounter, are investigating but there were no immediate criminal charges, university officials said Tuesday. The African-American student could be seen in the video briefly holding the arm of the white student, who later identified himself on social media as Cory Goldstein, as he tried to leave the area.

“You're saying that I can't have a hairstyle because of your culture? Why?” Goldstein said while standing in a hallway stairwell.

“Because it's my culture,” the woman said. “Do you know what locks mean?”

Goldstein, wearing a green sweater, baggy pants and a backpack with his dreadlocks, responded by asking if she knows they “were in Egyptian culture.” He added, “Are you Egyptian? Nah, man, you're not."

Asked by the woman and another person standing nearby if he’s Egyptian, Goldstein said, “No, but it doesn’t matter.” The woman asked him, “Wait, where’s Egypt?” and Goldstein turned to go.

She stood in his way and then grabbed his arm as he tried to walk up the stairs.

“Yo, girl, stop touching me right now,” Goldstein said. “I don't need your disrespect.”

“You put your hands on me, you're going to learn,” she said. Goldstein then walked up the stairs off camera. The footage ended with the woman asking whoever caught the incident on video, “Why are you filming this?”

Goldstein didn’t immediately respond Tuesday to a request for comment sent through Facebook, where he said in a post that he’s “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,” he wrote.

Undergraduates at the roughly 30,000-student public university are 25% white and 5% African-American, according to demographic figures posted on its website. Students of Asian descent make up the largest racial group of undergrads at 35%.

University officials dismissed earlier reports that the woman seen in the video, which had drawn over 150,000 views on YouTube Tuesday afternoon, was a campus employee. University spokesman Jonathan Morales told the Daily News the two people involved are believed to be students but said no more information was available about them.

“San Francisco State University promotes the rights of the campus community to engage in free speech, but does not condone behavior that impedes the safety or well-being of others,” university officials said in a statement. “We are taking the matter seriously and will promptly and thoroughly investigate this incident through applicable university channels, including our campus student conduct procedures.”

I'm sure of the roles were reversed, she'd be claiming he's racist and demand a change in policy.

First of all, that girl should have just mind her own business. What he does with his life is not her concern. If the guy wants to wear dreads, then let him do that. She has no right to tell him what he can or can't do. He is his own person. And it's not like he is hurting anyone or committing a crime. I swear I hate some African Americans.

If you're actually gonna tell people what they can and can't do based on your own culture you're a loser. This is America. Nearly everything about America is taken from another culture.

"Cultural appropriation" is so stupid. Why are you getting so pissed at someone who loves and is embracing your culture?? But what do I know, I'm just "some racist white person" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This is exactly what America does when they try to assimilate people
