Rafiki's Cove: Dear people who hate "white-people dreads"...

Dreadlocks are originally a Celtic thing, especially the “neglect method” as the Scots are lazy when they’re not fighting. People in Africa generally do not even have hair… It seems to me that “black dreads” are a new thing, and they came from Jamaica. And aesthetically speaking, I prefer…

GOOD SHOUT 

I wasn’t aware that people in Africa generally didn’t have hair. I was also under the impression that the people in Africa were not a monolith. Silly me.

And so we’ve gone from denigrating and hating “African” hair to denying it even exists. Also, LOL at their name including “rafiki”.
