I'm a Black man who's very appreciative of my lineage & heritage & all that entails (the good with the bad)..... But some of y'all so-called "real/spiritual brothers/sisters" be the most ludicrous & deluded people breathing air, god dammit. Y'all the inverse of cooning....
If natty-dreaded hair is so divine as y'all claim, why were the priests of Ancient Kemet & other societies shaved all-over & mandated to be bald?
Even more perplexing.... how can y'all claim to be so spiritual & divine, yet contrarily, almost-everything that comes out your mouths is centered in vanity?
Quit overcompensating for being Black in a Euro-centric society & keep it real with y'allselves in more substantial ways that count.
not at all dreadlocks are an ancient hairstyle that goes back to ancient india. damn near every race on the planet has worn them. it's a spiritual thing not a race thing. *doesn't have dreadlocks post*
You do know those Ancient Dravidans from India came from africa and from the linage of ham and you do know that they wore the same hairstyles as the black race Ham and Shem from Ancient africa with others, you do know they they said their ancestors came from the nile valley and the middle east is east africa and blacks are the original people of India, Iran and Iraq.
Dreads locks on blacks head naturally, let it grow and it will naturally lock up, no other race hair can do that, it's divine. Dreads is a black hairstyle always have and always will
Props to @waterproof for bringing clarity to this topic. *dreadlock'd for 5 years post*
Wearing locks is more of getting in tune with the spiritual essence just like @Lamilton3000 said.
