tell them to hop off or they'll have to answer to me. haha no i'm kidding. its annoying that people have such a misconception about dreads. explain to them that dirty locs don't lock, so you keep yours clean. or just ignore them. i'd choose that option, when they're mature, everyone will be jealous. :D

yeah your right it sucks that society is so closed minded only a hand full of the world is very opened minded like even my dad is closed minded he try to chop off my hair with scissors and he said that i was trying to be black and i told him no i am being different from the rest of the world because being normal is boring

this world would be such a better place if people weren't so ignorant and actually did their research and not debate on only there opinions or what they have seen on DHHQ and people dont understand that dreadlocks dont magically happen over night its a journey

You can tell people that your hair is clean and let them know that not all dreads are yucky and you can also not care about what other people think your expressing yourself and some people might not understand that because some people can be biased against people who look different. But your rocking the dreads!

High school sucks. Well it can anyways if you are the target of someone else's ire. If I were you... I'd become good buddies with Tyler here ;) cuz he sounds like he's got a good head on his shoulders and is close to you in age (Tyler??? Is that right?) And I would you tube dankevie and watch her timeline if you haven't already. Here is her first. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-MklNv16ao&feature=youtube_gdata_playerGood luck :)

It's sucks bad being targeted at school just because your are different. I had it not so well myself in school. I was anEnglishspeakingstrawberryblond Jehovah's Witness with bad acneglassesandsomewhatof a nerd in a french catholic school. All kinds of mean things where done to me, locked in my locker, pants pulled down, in gym class I had my clothes put in the toilet and peed on. Some girls asked me out just to mess with me...it was not a good time. When I got back home my dad would laugh at whathappenedto me when I told him so I stopped talking to him about it. One day I just snapped and I beat the crap out of a guy who humiliated me and after that I got more respect....I'm not telling you to do that ofcoursebut once your are done and over with themutatedversions of adults you will see that life gets much better after the craziness ofhigh-school and always stick to being who you are.
