Woah I was looking for inspiration when I get round to making my synthetic dreads when all of the sudden I’m thwacked in the face with the ‘white dreads’ tag. I wanted to see actual white dreads, all I do see is a bunch of white kids being rude to each other about ‘cultural appropriation.’
‘DUNT APPROPRIATE ITS RACIST’ well no, no it isn’t.
IT’S A HAIRSTYLE.
Black people pay big bucks for chemical straighteners to look more like white people, white people wear fake tan to look more like black people, the Japanese have whole subcultures trying to look western!!! Is that appropriation? Quite possibly. Is it offending and hurting anyone? Nein!
If you want dreads, get them! Your skin colour shouldn’t stop you from doing some, surely that’s what black people have been fighting for for a long, long time.
I understand that it gets offensive if there’s someone parading round pretending to be Rastafarian, but as long as you respect others and understand that personal hygine is important, GO AND DO WHAT YOU LIKE BABE.
Being half black American and half white English, I absolutely have the right to tell you to all shut up and get along. ;)
We’re all part of one world, why not stop catagorising people based on something out of their control?
