, i was told the same thing especially in the beggining when they were not together. then some others willsay u dont match with ur proffession, am a medical doctor and i will just tell them its my brain get to work and not my appearance. few seniors have them so that support me indirectly Iain said:
been awhile since I've heard anything disrespectful said to me, the last years its been alot of questions, some people ask why I have them If i can't wash them at which point I immediately tell them they are misinformed and if I couldn't wash my hair you would have been able to smell me a mile away since I've had them for a good awhile now.
I got my dreads because I had a prejudice against white people with dreads...it wasnt something I had 'on purpose' but had seeped into my conciousness over time...I know lots of people with dreads and had never thought of their dreads at all but there was a part of me that was prejudiced...so i gots my dreads to get over that prejudice.When I was googling dreads (and eventually found this wonderful forum that saved me from the maintenance malarky) I found a few posts by people who really hated dreads especially white people with dreads. but mostly these are people who are angry and hateful at anything.Since I got my dreads Ive had mostly compliments
Nothing negative so far, I have had more comments and praise from the the African Americans around where I live. I thought it would be different after reading some posts similiar to this. I get that "look" every now and then but I just smile back and no one has said anything rude directly towards me yet.
This is what alot of snobby rich people think about dreadlocks where I live.They think ppl with dreads are dirty, because they think that you cant wash dreads. They also think that dreadheads are druggies, but I just smile and kill them with kindness. Some girls I meet love my dreads, and some think there gross, even tho they are clean as hell. Thats just the way life is, you can't please everyone.
