People need to realise that dreads are not the same thing as cornrows FFS. Cornrows are an ancient traditional African style, while dreads have literally existed since the fucking Mionan civilization in acient Greece. Dreads were worn by Spartans, there is a Plica polonica that comes from Eastern Europe. Dreads were worn amongst Tibetian Buddists and yes, different African communities. I am sorry to break it to you, but dreads have never been purely just a Black thing.

well, this is kinda interesting, and I will put this out there because that anon wanted you to know. 

I wouldn’t be too hopeful, though, since most people would rather side with the popular opinion and throw around insults instead of bringing forth actual arguments.
