Completely Agree, Dreadlocks do not discriminate, they come to all who allow them to happen.

I've been thinking about locking my hair for a long time... and then I stumble upon many post, blogs, etc. about white people with locks are considered racists, oppressors and so on. Now I've been going back and forth, since I was supposed to do it very soon... But Now I'm not so sure... I'd go around with what I would have called peaceful hair, and other people would percieve it as racist. The reasoning behind me wanting to have locks are that I want to be more natural, in life generally.... food, lifestyle, mind and soul... and now this is something viewed upon racist? breaks my heart, but that's just my white irrelevant feelings. I don't want POC to find me offensive... thoughts?
only by a very very smwll number who are completely hate filled and no ammount of peacefullness will ever calm that hatred
and its not your dreads they are racist against but your skin so dread or no dread they still will hate u
just ignore them..
All I have found was that some Gauls would putchalkin their hair andbackcomb it when theywentinto battle to make them look fierce but nothing about vikings orNorsebut it is possible that some did have locks.
Does anyone have any references about viking/norse wearing their hair in dreads? From what I've read viking/norse were very uptight about maintaining their hair and beards and that the belief of them wearing locks or uncombed hair stemmed from propaganda to make them appear barbaric and uncivilized.
I really don't see any point in justifying locks with culture or 'race' (what ever definition of race you use). It all boils down to belief and belief is personal you can't force it on any one ( well some might try but history has taught us the negative outcome of forcing belief).
