Where to send your picture and dreadlock stories

e-mail material to dorothysguyton@gmail.com Sending in material gives me permission to use it in my book to be released fall of 2015. Put book interview in subject line of e-mail along with any name you wish to be used with your interview/picture. I need athletes, business people, everyday people, children with parents permission, males and females. Let's make this endeavor go viral on social media around showing us their best dread hair accomplishments. Most of all #submit clear pictures of your hair, along with a name and why and when you wanted your hair to be in this style? A book celebrates and inform the society at large. I look forward to hearing from you and woking with.

binnixie-thinks and Comments on White People Wearing Dreadlocks

Thank you for giving me permission for using your commentary in my #DreadlockProject.

White People Dreads!

Quick thought about white people with dread locks:
I think it’s culturally ignorant and insensitive for a white person to deliberately lock their hair. It’s like when Lana Del Rey wore that head dress… It’s called “Cultural Appropriation”. It truly is just plain offensive. Also, the argument that the Nordic tribes had dread locks is complete bullshit. The vikings were incredibly clean people in nearly every way. Very efficient. So efficient, in fact, that they made hair combs out of wood. Hair combs to brush their hair out. To keep it from getting matted. They even cut and bleached their hair.
I’m not saying that black people are gross for locking their hair, I’m just pointing out that dread locks was never part of any “white person” culture. Unless of course you count hipster assholes as a “culture”.
With that being said, I think it’s inappropriate for a black person to wear dread locks just because they like the style of it. That’s still cultural appropriation. It has nothing to do with the color of your skin. It has everything to do with your religion, family,  way of life…culture. It’s also racist to tell a white person that they can’t wear dreads just because they’re white and that only black people should be allowed to wear them.
The only two ways someone could get away with dread locks without being culturally insensitive is:
1) They’re doing it out of appreciation of that culture or want to become part of that culture (Which most likely could not include women, I think)
2)They’re just being lazy. They don’t want to go through the hassle of brushing, cleaning or even cutting their hair so they just let it get matted until it looks like dreads. And that’s just nasty.
TL;DR: If you’re dreading your hair because you think it looks cool, you’re an asshole.

This journey has been about . . . Luv, Patience, & Growth . . . for myself. If you're broken, your crown (as I call Cita) will be broken. Now I'm at a place where I feel like I'm really who I'm meant to be. Cita accompanies my retro style, my full lips, my laugh & smile that have become more authentic. Thankful for the strength to take on something that requires a great deal of patience, but allows a beautiful journey to take place.

blessings.
