Kenyon Martin accuses Jeremy Lin of wanting to "be black" with dreads, Lin responds
LINK

quote:

Kenyon Martin caused quite a stir recently when he fired some shots directed at Jeremy Lin and his current hairstyle. With Lin now sporting dreadlocks, the former NBA pro made his thoughts about it known and even said that his hairstyle choice is inappropriate for a player who is not African American in an Instagram post he made on Wednesday.


Martin Instagram

quote:

kenyonmartinsrI’m confused,puzzled,in shock,disappointed in his teammates and the Nets as an organization for allowing this foolishness!!


quote:

After finding out about it, the Brooklyn Nets guard has responded to the strong comments Martin made. However, instead of retaliating with a fiery statement of his own, he said that he understands him, especially coming from a minority as well and is even grateful for it via his reply on Instagram.

Not necessarily for the hair, but classy response.

I feel like someone who has Tila Tequila lips on their neck cannot comment on another man's style choices.

Black people didn’t even invent dreadlocks and they don’t have exclusive rights to a fricking hairstyle.

I swear some of these people are so stupid and ignorant. And they are acting like snobby brats when they say “only we can wear that hairstyle.” Oh yeah? frick you.

Terrible haircut, good response in what's really a no win situation for Lin.

Only black people can braid their hair?

Can you imagine if someone told Serena Williams she couldn't straighten her hair?

Remember the days when only black women wore dreads? Kinda like the days when only sailors and real bikers only had tattoos.

Jeremy always does random hairstyles. He doesn't always do dreads.

They have words, hairstyles, music, and neighborhoods that we can be a part of.

Sounds pretty racist to me...
