So apparently people want you to explain to them why you choose to have dreadlocks, (if you're white.) I say, it's none of your business, especially if you have no significance in my life. But that reason makes me a white privileged cultural appropriator. What's everyone's thoughts on this? When I started my dreads 11 years ago I didn't think to myself, oh look at that POC, I want to appropriate their culture. I don't even associate POC with dreadlocks. I know more white people that have dreadlocks than I do POC.
