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 tbh

Aka white folk in general tbh

Lmfao just…

"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.

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?

It wouldn’t let me reblog this post so I had to take a screenshot.

I’ve watched this post being reblogged for a while and seen the attention it has been received based on the ignorant comment in bold. I’d like to bring attention to the fact that in now way in the text below the picture did I say that black people don’t wash their locs. Neither did I advocate not washing them, as believe it or not I wash my hair on a regular basis. If people had bothered to read the comment properly or to look at my blog and try to find out a bit more about me before making snap judgements then they would know this. A few people did, and I have the utmost respect for those people.

It disappoints me that on a website designes for freedom of expression, thought and speech that some people still so easily follow the crowd like sheep. You see an opinion you feel like you agree with and jump straight on the bandwagon without even questioning who’s driving. This is how the media brainwash us because people are too lazy to look at the evidence and come to their own independent conclusions. People want the person with the loudest voice to speak for them instead.

The second point I want to make is how ridiculous it is that you are blaming another persons hairstyle for your inability to succeed in life. You are literally targetting a person you know nothing about, who you didn’t even know existed before you saw this post and you are accusing them of affecting your chances of getting a job. It’s absolutely ludacris.

I know that it’s generally an easier world for white people, for males, for people who are straight, but it doesn$t mean people don’t have their own struggles. We are all dealt different cards in life but what’s important is how you play the hand you’ve got. There’s inequality in the world and it sucks, but you’ve got to work with what you’ve got. If I change my hairstyle is it going to significantly change your life?? I highly doubt it, and if it did then you are completely disempowering yourself and putting the fate of your own life in someone else’s hands.

Take control of your life. You can’t blame other people for what you do or do not achieve. You might think that because I’m white I’ve had it all handed to me on a plate right? Well I haven’t. I’ve worked hard for the things I have, my skin colour didn’t get me good grades at school and a degree, and even with this I am working a job earning minimum wage. I have no car, no tv, no iphone, no laptop and you accuse me of being a supremacist. It’s ridiculous.

If you think an employer is going to judge you on your hairstyle then f*ck that employer! Why would you want to work for someone who discriminates you for your hairstyle anyway? I sure as hell wouldn’t and that’s why I don’t give a crap if people judge me. I’m employed because I’m hard-working, honest and good I what I do and it’s got nothing to do with my skin colour or hairstyle because my bosses aren’t assholes!!

I get why you’re angry I do. I know I’ve never experienced racial discrimination in the way that people of colour do and maybe I will never understand it completely.  But I’m a woman and that counts for something. I feel angry too when I see so much sexist shit everywhere, but I don’t go around blaming some random male on the internet because they’re paying me less for being a woman. Your intentions might be good but your target is wrong.

Myself and many other white people who wear dreadlocks or matts or whatever you would like to call them in their hair are not bad people. We are kind, loving, open-minded and unjudging. I don’t have a lot but I give as much as I can to other people and I put a lot of energy into trying to help others and yet you want to berate me for my hairstyle.

You literally want to completely disregard a person’s entire character, way of life and how they treat other people and instead focus entirely on how they choose to wear their hair. And then you want to use this as a reason for why you can’t succeed in life. Please reconsider your battles.

All that commentary was written by someone who has a thin grasp on how the world works. They have a slight grasp.A very very weak grasp.
