So i wanted to make this forum to tell everyone how annoyed i am. ive had this guy friend for about a year id say. and i just hung out with him yesterday. he drinks a lot and is headstrong, perhaps more than me. his ignorance actually got to me yesterday, to the point where i wanted to scream at him. i actually kept my cool which is good. he told me he talked to a Caucasian female and she told him she was able to get dreads by not washing her hair. then he proceeded to tell me i shouldnt have dreads because i am not African American. so i went ahead to prove my point yadayada, and i told him to smell my dreads. (cause i literally just washed them with nag champa so they smelled great). he said ewww i dont wanna know what your hair smells like, its probably nasty. everyone there smelled my hair and felt my hair and was surprised that its soft and smells great and looks clean. everyone that asks me if i wash my hair always ends up walking away enlightened that i actually do, and you're suppose to! dreads are clean! anyways this guy just wouldn't give it up! he was convinced he was right. hes around 40 years old, so im pretty sure hes brainwashed, and thats all hes known so he wont change his views. i eventually told him to shut his trap and his ignorance isnt needed any further in the conversation. people these days.... will they ever learn to open their mind and be a free thinker?
