So you’ve just ignored everything that PoC are telling you, and you don’t expect people to react negatively to that?
btw any of the “nice” comments you’re getting are from white people

Calling them dread locs is appropriative.
Being white and having locs is actually a bad thing, whether you believe it or not. Listen to black people.
Black people are already getting a lot of crap for having their hair in their natural state, and if they wouldn’t maintain it, then it’d probably be even worse and you don’t even realize the privilege you have!
Can white people even have natural dread locs? Because I’m white, and if white people don’t brush their hair it looks messy and chaotic, but they don’t get locs??
You say people shouldn’t care because it’s your hair, but it doesn’t matter. You can’t do with your hair what you want if it’s cultural appropriation which yes, it is.
All the nice comments are from white people who haven’t checked their privilege, and are being ignorant and appropriative as fuck.
Understand that what you’re doing is wrong, racist, appropriative and hurts black people. Instead of apologizing and letting them grow out and cut them off, you completely ignore everything black people tell you. It’s extremely disrespectful. Ashamed to be white once again. -Vicky
Dang, it’s just hair.
Have you been reading??? At all??? IT’S. NOT. JUST. HAIR.
It’s too much to expect racists to think, past what they already see as the truth—especially if it means considering a black person’s feelings.
SHE NEVER SAID THE COMMENTS WERE FROM BLACK PEOPLE. SHE NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE RACE OF THE PEOPLE COMMENTING.
And my god all these comments on this post are looking past the fact that this person did not look at a person with dread locs and say to themselves: “wow I hope this really hurts people of color. that is my only goal for this hair style.” she got them because she THOUGHT IT LOOKED GOOD.
All this hate she is getting is the same as when a girl dresses a little slutty and people around her are just going: “if she dresses like that she’s just asking for comments”
calm yourselves down and let someone (who is not hurting anyone by the way) do whatever the fuck they want.
