Presenting : White people damaging their hair by forcing it to do something it’s not meant to in an effort to seem earthy.

this shit is nasty

Omg! That last one is kinda fresh! I call it the Meatloaf

Seriously white people? Give it the fuck up. You don’t have the hair texture for that. Accept it.

Somebody told me that if I deleted this post I’d stop getting notes on it (it was blowing up my phone) and that *kinda* worked. I would like to take a moment and point out that I had a shit ton of people hounding my inbox and the comments saying they had dreads that look like this and they weren’t gross or that if they don’t shower this is what their hair does naturally

  1. The dreads in this picture are hella nasty. One is full of mold. That’s the point. These are NOT what dreads are supposed to look like.
  2. Hair that isn’t afro textured never ever looks like real dreads (i.e. they don’t look the same at all) If you had to backcomb, they probably aren’t real dreads.
  3. You are exploiting your white privilege if you can still go to school and work with your dreads in, because black people consistently have their natural hair deemed ‘unprofessional’ and used as a means to prevent them from getting hired and to fire them from jobs and have them expelled from school.
  4. They won’t do their own research. No, the Celts did not have dreads, no dreadlocks are not found everywhere
  5. White people calling themselves Rastafarian. Are you kidding. ‘Rasta’ and ‘Rastafarian’ are not terms meaning ‘Bob Marley Fan Club’ or ‘I like weed’. Rastafarians are AGAINST white supremacy.
  6. BUT BLACK PEOPLE STRAIGHTEN THEIR HAIR/ WEAR WHITE HAIR. One, black people don’t wear ‘white hair’. I’m not lying to you, walk into a hair story.You will find Indian, Malaysian, Brazilian but never European hair because it’s not as great as you think it is. Two, the fact that people with kinky hair straighten it with relaxer or flat irons ect is because black people are taught that their natural hair is ‘not good hair’ and because their natural hair is sometimes deemed as unprofessional. Do you like movies? Chris Rock made one about it called ‘Good hair’. Also, this.
  7. Your Dreadlocks are cultural appropriation. They also look nasty.

x o x o fuck you

Disgusting.

Ewwww mold in hair?? 

I was wondering why that dread drama post was getting notes again.

But yeah….this is all so so so very wrong.

Why do any of you care. It’s not yours. They want to be them. It is not any of your place. BE AND LET BE. If you want to lean do so. But if you think you know you have much to learn.

I could say the exact same thing about white people and dreads.

"MODERN DAY LYNCHINGS"
Kody (Pretty Boy) Ingham (pictured above) was found hanging from a tree in front of his white girlfriends house on July 15, 2013 (the same night as the George Zimmerman verdict) in Athens, Texas. it was chalked up as a suicide and no investigation ensued, even though two hours prior he called his mother to pick him up from the site he died at. no newspaper article, just a four sentence obituary in the local papers and his family has been trying hard to make any mainstream news channel blow up the story to find the killers.
Roy Veal was found hanging in Woodville, Mississippi in 2004. he originally lived in Seattle and went to his mother’s home in Woodville to help her fight for the rights to their family land against a white man. Oil had been found underneath the land.
Roy’s head was covered with a pillow case and burned papers of the documented proof he had to prove his mothers’ ownership were found burned at his feet. He was later found hanging from a tree. His death was ruled a suicide.
His family is still trying to get attention for the case 
Reynard Johnson, 17, was found hanging from a tree on his front lawn on June 16, 2000 in Kokomo, Mississippi. His death was ruled a suicide even though the belt around his neck was not his. Authorities said since no hate group left a message by the body, there was nothing to investigate. Family members said the motive was his relationship with a white girl, he was constantly being harassed because of this.

Hello friends!

Help a young filmmaker raise money to buy his equipment back.

This is my good friend Maurice Keyes who I went to film school with. During one of his gigs a few weeks ago his entire equipment got stolen and he is looking for funds. Not only do I say this as a friend but as a fellow young filmmaker, I support and see so much potential in him.

Here are a few Behind The Scenes photos I took during his thesis film shoot last year.

If you have some spare money, please support this young Black filmmaker and take a look at his work on the Indiegogo page

If anything, please pass this around. 

Love-

Yanett

please help out a Black Filmmaker.

P.S my condolences go to him, that’s awful his film equipment got stolen.

"It’s the age of celebrity. It’s the age of social media. But for we old school girls who don’t want to show up at every single event just ‘cause… I don’t tweet–I have nothing to say. I’m not on Facebook. I mean it sounds like I have plenty to say, but that’s to people who I’m in a room with. I’m not that interesting, and the rest is none of your business." - Gina Torres
