Anonymous asked: I am a white woman and I am planning on getting dreads and I have been told by a few people that they think it is racist of me to do so (mostly by white people). I didn’t think of dreads as strictly an African-centric hairstyle, as I was going for more of a Viking look. Is it racist for white people to get dreads, or is it racist to think that dreads are automatically a black hairstyle?
yoisthisracist: Yo, I can’t even deal with how many layers of wackness this question gets into, without even getting near any of the racism parts.
seriously, it’s like “I wanna do this thing & a bunch of people tell me it’s racist but I think it’s not really racist because I don’t think it is, so I’m gonna ask you now so hopefully you can tell me what I wanna hear.”
