Dreads & racism


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Yes, they will say something like "look at that white boy with dreads," and laugh. And yes we are in high school

I wasn't going to comment but I have to ask...what are they saying or are they just looking at you funny? Do they specifically say that because you are white that you shouldn't have dreads?
Are you and these people in high school (which I am assuming from your last sentence)?

Dreads & racism


Life Issues Facing Dreads

I've noticed that it's always African Americans that criticize my boyfriend and I for having dreads. I am not being racist, it is simply an observation. I never really got it until today but people have talked about/given looks to my boyfriend. Caucasians compliment our hair all the time but it's always African Americans who make a big deal about it. I find this to be very racist. I don't believe that dreadlocks "belong" to any race or culture since they are not only ancient but many people are wearing them for many different purposes. Even so, that would be like me saying that African Americans can't eat ravioli because that's an Italian meal.Has anyone else noticed this? Do adults act like this or is it just because they're asinine high school kids?
