Dreadlocks and cultural appropriation

spiritual-health:

Does anyone else think there’s a massive grey area regarding this? Naturally I have very curly hair. If I don’t brush my hair for a few days (which I don’t, I only brush it before
I wash it) it begins to form dreads. White people naturally form dreads; my ancestors would have had dreads. Can you stamp cultural possessiveness on natural human form? I don’t understand this one

FIRST OFF NO ONE VALUES YOUR WHITE OPINION. BUT ILL ENTERTAIN YOUR BULLSHIT. YOU DONT BRUSH YOUR WHITE HAIR TO FORM DREADS . BLACKS CAN BRUSH THEIR HAIR EVERYDAY AND STILL FORM LOCS. WHEN YOU WASH YOUR HAIR AND YOU SAY IT FORMS A DREAD IS BULLSHIT. LEARN HOW TO USE CONDITIONER AND LEARN HOW TO DETANGLE YOUR HAIR AFTER YOU WASH IT . YOU SAY YOU HAVE CURLY HAIR YET YOU DO NOT HAVE KINKY HAIR. WHITE PEOPLE DO NOT NATURALLY FORM DREADS. YOU PEOPLE PUT BULLSHIT IN YOUR HAIR OR U JUST DONT WASH YOUR HAIR TO DO IT . WHICH IS DISGUSTING AND MAKES THE WORLD THINK BLACK PEOPLE DO THE SAME WITH THEIR LOCS. YOUR ANCESTORS WHO HAD DREADS ??? YOU WONT UNDERSTAND TILL YOU ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR WHITE PRIVILEGE.
