Should sheer stupidity and historical ignorance warrant execution? Probably not, but there's certainly no reason to listen to this idiot.

 Kenyon Martin, Minister of Cultural Appropriation 

Kenyon Martin, Minister of Cultural Appropriation 

Basketball player Kenyon Martin calls out Jeremy Lin for "cultural appropriation" because of Lin's wearing dreadlocks. Lin points out that Martin has Chinese characters tattooed on his arm.

I have no idea what part of Africa the partially-white Mr. Kenyon's black ancestors may have come from, but I doubt they were Egyptian, a different culture, and certainly he's not Indian, Greek, Minoan, Roman, or Celtic, all cultures whose members wore dreadlocks long before African-Americans appropriated the style in the 70s.

Kenyon, by the way, made millions by playing basketball, a game invented by a white man in Springfield, Massachusetts, and published his complaint against Lin via cellphone, a device very much not invented by an African.

Not that he shows any ability or inclination to read, but here's a brief article one of Kenyon's friends might read to him:

The history of dreadlocks is varied and differs depending on who you ask. This, then, is a summary and compilation of all the different accounts we have been able to locate.
One account claims that dreadlocks originated in India (unlike most who cite Egypt as their birth place) with the dreadlocked diety Shiva and his followers. It is likelythat this is the spirituality origin of dreadlocks in Indian culture. However, the first archeological proof of people wearing dreadlocks came from Egypt where mummies have been recovered with their dreadlocks still in tact.
Regardless of their origin, dreadlocks have been worn by nearly every culture at some point in time or another. Roman accounts stated that the Celts wore their hair ‘like snakes’. The Germanic tribes and Vikings were also known to wear their hair in dreadlocks. Dreadlocks have been worn by the monks of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, the Nazarites of Judiasm, Qalandri’s Sufi’s, the Sadhu’s of Hinduism, and the Dervishes of Islam, and many more!
