Want to twerk? Don’t go to Hampton University.

The school took a stance against twerking, now that it’s become a mainstream dance craze, with a lecture to freshmen students. An image from the lecture made its rounds on the internet yesterday, reading:

“1) Hampton Ladies Do Not Twerk!!!

2) Hampton Men Do Not Take Twerkers Home To Mother

3) Employers do not discriminate between twerkers and twerkees”

The image accompanies reports that Hampton University has issued a “no twerking” order to the women who attend. If they are caught twerking, they may be subject to disciplinary action.

    Good riddance.

    Maybe they will ban skinny jeans on men, crayola colored hair weaves, sagging pants, and few other useless things that young minded individuals tend to do.

    Many of these women twerking don't know anything about the Transatlantic Slave Trade nor do many have an awareness of their cultural roots.

    They just doing it because its some hip and trendy shit they saw the next female do while dancing to the last hot song.

    Not a very good comparison.

    If folks want to tribal "twerk" let them go take modern dance most universities especially HBCU's offer this class.

    So what does twerking do to be exact to the person and their well being except give an illusion of being a good person or whatever bullshit.

    Wtf? Twerking use to be tribal dances long before a university ever existed. Foolish shit.

    That aint twerking bruh. If that is the case African tribes were doing the jump around before House of Pain.

    Doesn't matter bro it's still a part of our culture. You could say that about anything

    Most people don't know much about the slave experience when they cook soulfood, they just doing it cuz it tastes good

    Most people don't know much about the origins of basketball when they on the court, they just doin it for the enjoyment

    I could go on..

    Ain't nothing trendy about twerking to us. It's only trendy to white people now that they caught on

    Distracting from you from what? You must have a weak ability to focus your mind, I can look at a girl twerking it nice and all and get back to what I'm suppose to do.

    Looks like a joke to me.

    Point being the dance originates towards back to ancient tribal dances, some it was eluded towards sex and sex is as condeming as it is in the west, we have the puritans to thank for that. If they finish their studies and want to twerk it out, well let them be. I can understand if that's all they did and not do their course work that their scholarships and student loans are paying for.

    Dumb shit. The university has no place in this shit.

    Have they also banned stripping, prostitution, murder, other provocative dancing, etc... ?

    Like @lighthearted26 said, unless it's done during school.

    And who the fuck are they to say twerkers can't be brought home to mothers ? Maybe they could / can't, or maybe a nigga lookin' for a bitch to bring home to fuck and not to meet the parents. Notice the use of the word "parents" and not just "mother" - another way they fucked up.

    there is a difference between dancing ritual tribal ceremonies and just flapping your ass cheeks with half your cleavage showing. LC is right these heffers aren't paying tribute to their ancestral roots. If that was the case, they'd take that 5 pound, 200 dollar weave off their head and go natural.

    Some of the damn tribal dances were fucking sexual. Some of the sexual dances were towards different goddesses and especially of fertility and sometimes and maybe the woman likes to actually dance. Is that so hard to imagine, you have this view of what blacks are suppose to be, we are suppose to be whoever we deem to be.
