Dreads & racism


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Granted that the human race will still be around, give it some time and almost everyone will have a little bit of everything in them, so what's the point?

That was in reply to the link you supplied because it mentioned African American history. Much enlightenment & peace to you my friend :)

Yea, but did you? I always thought the whole "Well my ancestors..." argument was kinda silly. My ancestors may have hunted savannah lions for all i know, doesnt mean i am gonna go to my nearby zoo, find one, and blow its brains out.Our ancient ancestorshave nothing to do with the modern world we live in, and the conformist views of it's people. Notto sound jaded LoL. Dont feel like i am attacking you though, at all.

I hope this topic has empowered you. Most of us (Yes, even dreadheads) judge others on something. It is just what humans do. I dont believe any one person is truly enlightened there is always something about someone that one can detest. But we can strive to be, ya dig. Stray dreadie.

Take a look at this link and learn about why you are getting those comments/looks: http://makezine.enoughenough.org/mohawksdreads.htm

The authors outline really well the ways in which hairstyles are a form of cultural appropriation and perpetuate racism rather than counter it. Just think about why it's so important to YOU to have a certain hairstyle and then learn the real meaning behind our individual actions.

Well, do you think that when humans first came into the world they immediately invented the comb?

Oh, I did not mean it like that. I was saying that from the Caucasians I've encountered, they are pretty open minded about it. I do believe it is ignorant/insecure kids so I don't mind.

people critize me for having dreads too, i think it doesnt have to do with black people telling you that i think its ignorant people and it can be anyone talking about your hair ,spanish, white, asian any race. peoples opinions don't really matter because when it all balls down to it there not living your life, you are so ignore them. and your right dreads don't belong to one race i don't feel that way at all toward caucasian people, i don't thinkcaucasian people shouldnt have dreads, its your choice, just like its anyones choice to get dreads, and i have to disagree with you and say that caucasian people do talk about dreads, last year while i was in class this caucasian girl looked at me and said "I think dreads are dirty" so it isn't just one race that thinks dreads are dirty, or wierdits just the ignorant people that you meet & we shouldnt focus on one race just because a few of thatrace said stuff like that because it could be anyone.

This is inspiring thank you. :)

all in all people it really doesn't matter if you're tall or short, fat or skinny, pale or dark have dreads or straight hair there's always going to be someone who feels the need to comment about it. Ya just gotta let it roll off your back! If you don't allow it to bother you then it will no longer be an issue. Nobody is immune from stupid and sometimes hurtful comments from others. You can't control what people say to you so just embrace it! Learn to love what makes you unique! When I was young (6th grade maybe?) My biggest problem in life was my lips were too big and I was tall. LOL! People pay money for big lips and wear crazy shoes to be taller! So now when anyone say's something to me about my height (5'9") Wow you're tall for a girl I say I know thank you! So if someone says something like oh look white boy with dreads you say yes I am! Thanks for noticing!Be proud and those things shouldn't bother you. Many Blessings My Beautiful Phreaks!!!!

It only bothers me sometimes that society is the way it is, but I do love my hair. I wouldn't enjoy being another clone. Thank you for the advice :)

The bolded below is key. I know it is probably hard because you are in high school but you got to brush it off. If they see that it bothers you, then they will probably continue. If it isn't the dreads, it'll be something else. Are they racist? Based on the info that I am reading here, no. Are they immature high school kids? Yup.
