Choosing not to brush my hair is not disrespectful to anybody’s culture in any way. Why can’t you see we’re all earthlings?
Do you, lady ! Your dreads are amazing. These blackies are just mad that you our hair is beautiful and you are able to have beautiful normal hair when you’re done with it
Ew what the fuck is that comment
whoa whoa no. Dreads are fine no matter your race but calling people ‘Blackies’ is an absolute NO. And saying they will be jealous because they would have ‘normal’ hair after??? All hair is normal hair?? ?
Racism is never ever ever okay.
They’re racists against whites for not letting us have dreads. When their shit colored smelly hair is in dreads then it’s fine I guess but we can’t?
"SHIT COLORED SMELLY HAIR"
This is what I love about open racists.
At least you know who the enemy is.
This is why I’m beginning to say “no” to white folks with dreads…
””blackies are just mad”
"beautiful normal people hair when you’re done”
"their shit colored smelly hair”
When people ask why many Black people are vehemently opposed to white people wanting to be a part of the natural hair movement, remember these statements. Remember that this is not just about hair, but about the stigma and hatred we face for embracing it. It’s about a willful lack of understanding or respect.
Can I just say that from my experience dreads on white people have to be made using wax, loads of teasing and work? I mean maybe someone has got curly enough hair out there to make it dreaded just by not brushing their hair, but I can tell you my hair as a white person will never dread on it’s own. As for cultural appropriation I think there are some more ancient European cultures that dreaded their hair in one way or another. But I could be horribly mistaken and just being stupid so take what I say with a grain of salt…. or many.
The absolutely gross racism in the comments aside. I’m pretty sure that white people historically have worn dreads. My ancestry can be traced to north west Europe for a few generations and if I don’t brush my hair for a week, dreads start forming in my neck. Given that not everybody has even had a brush throughout history, I’m pretty sure some white people wore dreads at some point.
shit colored, smelly blackies. yay.
