No, no, no. As a Native American myself, I was just discussing with my family how this is wrong. Even I am not allowed to wear a headdress because it would be so offensive. I'd explain why, but I think this link would do it better justice than I.

I don't think the guy's racist, but I still think he shouldn't wear it.


It being offensive is the point though. Milo is fighting for people's right to be offensive as an expression of free speech (the concept moreso than the law)...There is a big difference between saying that it is disrespectful, and saying that someone shouldn't be allowed to do something. I think that its perfectly fine to explain to people why wearing Native American headdresses is offensive and ask them not to, but having a University outwardly ban cultural costumes is an overreach of power.


Yeah man hes really dedicated to free speech as shown by his support of a candidate who wants to censor the internet and harshen up libel laws.

Fuck Milo mans a hypocrite.

People wear everything that was complained about in that thread for various reasons. Theres a difference between wearing a uniform that looks like a general with tons of plastic awards and having REAL awards or replicas of real awards. You mimic someone's appearance because you like it in some way and that is called a tribute, even if it isn't correct.

Oh sorry, I misread. But still, its kinda ridiculous to hold Milo accountable for everything Trump says. You can support someone without supporting everything they say. I support Sanders, but theres certainly areas in which I disagree with him...

Normally I'd make fun too, but in this case?

Yeah...this guy was being a dick all around and sounded like he wanted to troll. Also unless you're Native American, I find people who wear headdresses, like those Coachella tryhards, tacky.


He's also from Brietbart. That alone tells me he's just doing it for shits and lulz

I'm surprised the majority of peeps backed the prof on here.

I think it's because America really doesn't have a culture so we can't understand why it's wrong.

In India for example, they have the dots on their foreheads to signify cleanliness or purity. For people on Halloween to "dress indian" is offensive.

Idk, but I guess it's like if on Halloween in Japan they dressed like Americans and mimicked our accents and mannerisms in a mocking way.

I'm Native American, Tlingit to be exact. My buddies and I joke around about which of them is my spirit animal and when I'm going to go "Clubbing" (Clubbing baby seals for those of you that are more innocent than I).
A white guy wearing Native garb to a speech of that topic, that's just perfect. I can't personally think of any Native that would be offended by this other than these over-sensitive people. It's fitting and should be allowed as it proves his point. Stop being so politically correct people.

And while I certainly agree with that statement Milo staking his bets on Trump is still incredibly hypocritical. Trumps proposed plans will do much more harm to free speech than any college students can ever dream off. The thing is Milo talks about free speech and how his is somehow being taken away from him constantly. Like when his fucking twitter checkmark got taken away he was apparently being censored. Even had the #JeSuisMilo hashtag going because having your checkmark taken away is totally comparable to being murdered by terrorists.

To quote the movie God Bless America "I'm not offended that they act like it's my responsibility to protect their rights to pick on the weak like pack animals, or that we're supposed to support their freedom of speech when they don't give a fuck about yours or mine.". Milo signed his right to complain about censorship when he supported a pro-censorship candidate. You cant be out claiming your fighting for free speech when your support of a candidate will have drastic affects on freedom of speech more than any thing you do will counteract.

Aren't there more important things to worry about then some guy playin' dress up. People like me don't have access to college and you waste your college time with this. This guy doesn't need to respond to anything. He doesn't need to do anything. Sometimes it's best just to do nothing. Instead he wants to waste his time causing a big scene and offending people. The world doesn't always care what you think. Get over yourself.

It's not offensive its paying tribute to them.

I want all of Japan to dress in fat suits, get on hover-rounds, and sing "America fuck yeah" while trick or treating it would be fucking amazing, if only they would... But they do have this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0dTG1_x-K8

As an American I can confirm some people talk like this.

Who would want that offensive and insensitive "tribute"? It's like people claiming that the Washington Redskins' name is a "tribute" to Native Americans when they're really just using a racial slur. A headdress is an honorary symbol with restricted use even within our tribes. If this man understands the gravity of what he is doing, then he is just dismissing anyone's concerns about it being disrespectful, and that means he is not paying tribute or respecting our culture.

I'll quote the article I linked earlier:


Even if you have ‘native friends’ or are part native yourself, individual choices to “not be offended” do not trump our collective rights as peoples to define our symbols.

not everyone who dresses culturally is paying tribute.

You know like if kkk members dress like slaves with afros and charcoal rubbed skin?

I sincerely doubt that elementary school kids dressed like native americans are trying to honor them. They just wanna look "funny" and probably don't even know why chiefs wore headresses, or carried animal bones
