Money or Dreads?
Most of the comments here are incredibly narrow-minded.If you have African hair it's pretty much a disaster to keep that long without either a ton of products or braids that have to be redone every month or so. The main reason is this that it's more accepted for those with African hair to wear dreads, not some bogus culture claim. Furthermore, blacks already have a disadvantage in getting a job in the first place. Even in freaking Africa! And unlike having dreads, being black isn't a choice.If money to you is paper that doesn't buy you anything you need (you know you conveniently forgot about food, water and housing) then it is atleast your responsibility to earn as much money as possible so that you can help others. If you earn 100k a year and only need 20k you could easily use that 80k per year to...say...help like 100 stray animals per year have a good comfortable life, rather then being euthanized after having a short wreck of a life because humans are horrible demons. To say your hair is more important then that makes you...pretty much evil in my opinion.Money is the most important thing, if not to you then to those who do not have the choice of cutting off their dreads and earning it for themselves. If dreads interfere with you being able to get or keep a job that you would be happy with doing while earning more money and you refuse to do so for some ridiculous "Stick it to da man!" statement is completely forgetting what is really important in life.And SE:That comment about a company earning more off of your work then you earn in pay is the most logical thing I have ever heard. That is the entire point of hiring someone! And often you're actually at a huge advantage working for pay instead of actually owning the company. Just look at the stock market. Owning a company can be a complete disaster. Working for a wage is a much safer choice and this is why people do it in the first place.
