Misconceptions on why I have dreads

I understand that Dreadlocks are not the most accepted thing in society (except if your black and you got them done so they look too "perfect" and even), but a lot of people take it as a signal that someone is trying to be something they're not. Like today, on a website called formspring where you can be asked questions anonymously, I was told "Dreads are for black people only". I replied with something like "I'm not black, then how did I do it? O_O". Stupid, close-minded questions get dumb answers. Because that what stereotyping is, close-minded assumptions. Hmm, what do I also get. Oh yeah. I always get the stereotype that I'm trying to be Jamaican or Rastafarian. Seriously? Do I look or dress in any way that implies that? To be honest, I look like a Metalhead more than anything even though Metal isn't the only thing I listen to. But still, would you really see a guy who isn't black claim he's Jamaican? That would be the same as me claiming I'm French by wearing a beret or trying to be a Native American by getting tattoos of their deities. It makes no sense. And here's an even worse assumption. This phrase "Yo, you look like Lil Wayne." :| Umm... thank you? I don't even like him or his music. Actually, he's kind of annoying. Is Lil Wayne that popular that he represents the mainstream existence of dreads? Hopefully someone talented like Crystal Bowersox on American Idol (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cka-DoWJyCMcan) become famous enough to overshadow Lil Wayne so that there aren't any misconceptions about Dreads in the modern day. As you can see, she's a normal person you would see everyday. It's just that she has Dreads and talent. Real, hardworking talent. Not inorganic propaganda created by MTV or a record company. Dreads are a natural thing, not an attempt to be someone else.It's for everybody of all genders, races, and religions.

Some blacks with so-called perfect locs are persecuted too by some members of society. You have blacks with uneven dreads victimized by some ignorant people. Some people are biased against color, hair,etc. I'm going to dread my hair regardless of the opinion's of others.
