While having dreadlocks last year and also just wanting dreadlocks the thing I have always been told is; dreadlocks are for black people, it's dirty and disgusting. But of course me being me I ignored it and well have dreadlocks
But today while on tumblr (kind of like facebook if you don't know) there was a discussion started by a black person about "why do white people have dreadlocks, and why do they think it looks good on them" (I'll attach the link below). Although I don't know this person or the other people which wrote more hatred towards "white" people with locks, it still got me quite annoyed. One reply was from another "colored" girl that
"white people can't wash their hair when they're trying to get dreads because it doesn't lock on its own."
Umm, what? I wash my hair as much as I want and if anything they dread faster. Put aside that this chick doesn't even have dreadlocks, she still feels the need to hate against "white" who have them. I really thought that the conflict with skin color was over..
Has anyone else had such things? or thoughts about the subject?
