Am i the only one who’s annoyed by this white man using dreadlocks thing?
I’ve heard everything, i’ve heard that white people with dreadlocks look horrible, i’ve heard they shouldn’t use it because it’s more than aesthetic and it’s also cultural. People are angry because many people who use dreadlocks don’t even know the reason, or even what a rastafari actually is.
Why do they have to know the reason? It’s not like you own the rights for all the dreadlocks in the world, do i have to sign a paper that says i’m aware of the rastafari movement and write out the reason I’m using the dreadlocks?
Not even christians get mad when people walk around with crosses for absolutely no reason but fashion. So what the heck is this racism all about? we can’t use dreadlocks for aesthetic purposes only? Black people own the rights for every dreadlocks?
The argument is always the same “Oh…we know we live in a free world, and we know locks were used before, but we don’t like white people with dreadlocks and they look horrible, oh and also if a black person straightens hair it’s different. because black culture.”
It’s a hairstyle for fucks sake! No one’s using dreadlocks to make a caricature of your culture! they use it because they like it, who cares if they use it because it’s “grungy” or some shit like that.
Datura inoxia also known as Moon Flower. All Datura plants contain tropane alkaloids such as scopolamine, hyoscyamine, and atropine, primarily in their seeds and flowers. Because of the presence of these substances, Datura has been used for centuries in some cultures as a poison and as a hallucinogen.
