A video has gone viral showing an African American student at San Francisco State University confronting a white student over his dreadlocks. Campus police are continuing their investigation and will forward on their findings to the San Francisco District Attorney’s office.
Today, the roommate of the woman who confronted the student is speaking out.
It’s one thing to see video of something that happened on your campus spread like wildfire, it’s quite another when the person in the video is your roommate.
“Crazy, it just went viral; it is on the radio and everything,” said Vanessa Hernandez, SFSU student.
“Were you surprised?” asked ABC7’s Amy Hollyfield.
“No,” said Hernandez
“How come?” asked Hollyfield.
“It’s been going on for a while,” said Hernandez.
Hernandez is referring to her roommate’s focus on race-related issues.
“Her passion, and social justice, and black power, and everything,” said Hernandez.
