I really hate seeing people using others culture as trends. You devalue the purpose of it by doing so. And quite frankly, it’s disgusting.
Aka white folk with dreads tbhAka white folk in general tbh
"It’s just silly"…… I think you’re confusing an actual time consuming, care required, traditional hair style with unwashed heathen heads. Bye.
So, what? You’re a hair elitist? Seriously? They’re both dread no matter how you make them.
This man said “they’re both dread” , you’re literally insane .
How… What…? Letting your hair grow into dreads naturally and styling them to be dreads… they are both dreadlocks… I don’t get how I’m insane. Or how it’s culture appropriation. Give me one good source that definitively says that dreadlocks were invented by native Africans or whatever culture you’re trying to defend at this point.
I’m really mad this man said “native Africans” , like that shit just made me itch . This man don’t even know the origin of locs talking bout some damn “native africans” , if you leave a black persons hair unkempt for some time it gradually locks on its own sort of like what bob marleys looked like , the same can not be said for white people . When you leave white peoples hair unkempt it simply becomes greasy and matted , it’d be a major insult to call that dreads . You also see a lot of white people saying “just combed out my dreads” if you can fucking comb out your “dreads” THEY ARE NOT DREADS, THATS WHY ITS CALLED DREADLOCKS!!!
White people literally have to DAMAGE THEIR HAIR , in order to attempt the slightest resemblance of dreadlocks . You also often see white folk putting a bunch of rubberbands and beads on their “dreads” , if you have to do this , they are not dreads
Right but I’m stuck on the “native Africans” part. Dude white supremacy gives you privilege to literally not know anything. Lol
White supremacy gives you the privilege to not know anything
I remember when I thought people in their 20’s were adults. Now all of my friends are in their 20’s and everybody is just kind of fumbling around bumping into each other, trying to figure out where the free food is……
so that’s pretty much what I’m expecting to experience for the next like 10 years.
The awkward thing about this post is that like 80% of the people that reblogged it would probably have their feelings hurt if they actually went on my blog.
As a fat woman, I’m no longer content for women who are not fat to define themselves as such to lend their defensiveness and unhappiness with their bodies credibility. As a feminist, I’m no longer content to watch women of color treated as props to further an appropriation of beauty standards that white women boast about and black women are oppressed by. If the core of your message devalues other women based on their physical appearance, you’re not promoting an ideal that helps women in the way you believe it does.
I hate when I mean mug in photos I need to just smile more.
I don’t know how to smile at a camera
every black guy in an action movie written by white guys: now that’s what i’m talking about
*will smith voice* Wooooo!!! HEEEYYYLLL YEAH!!
Reasons why I’m excited for “Dear White People:”
- Black actors portraying 3-dimensional characters
- Honest social commentary
- Targeted to the college age demographic
- Thorough exploration of the various forms of racism in America
- Tessa Thompson’s voice and Tyler William’s afro wig
Reasons why I’m not excited for “Dear White People:”
- White people calling it racist
- Mainstream media agreeing with the white people calling it racist
I’m also afraid that the characters will be one dimensional and predictable. I’m also afraid there will be a stupid ending. The things I fear about every movie tho.
Do guys care about how many people you’ve been with?
