#hair

the "can I touch it?" thing doesn't just happen with POC. I think it's predominantly a curly hair thing. Old ladies won't stop trying to grope my head.

Ok. But it’s not the same. You cannot ignore the history of black bodies being disrespected and devalued and how that is tied to white supremacy. Well, I guess you can ignore it.

It sucks that people invade your personal space and touch your hair without permission. It’s not the same experience as women with Afro-textured hair. When talking about oppression, false equivalences are disrespectful. How many times does this need to be repeated?

Are you guys for real? It happens to everyone really. I get it all the time and I’m white and have straight hair.

You’re being willfully ignorant and you know it. Please re-read my reply. I didn’t say it doesn’t happen. I said IT’S NOT THE SAME. I can’t with ya’ll.

In Jamaica the term dreadlocks was first recorded in the 1950s as a term for the “Young Black Faith”, an early sect of the Rastafari which began among the marginalized poor of Jamaica in the 1930s, when they ceased to copy the particular hair style of Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia and began to wear dreadlocks instead.[citation needed] It was said that the wearer lived a “dread” life or a life in which he feared God, which gave birth to the modern name ‘dreadlocks’ for this ancient style.[citation needed]

Many Rastafari attribute their dreadlocks as a dedication to Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia as well as the three Nazarite vows, in the Book of Numbers, the fourth of the books of the Pentateuch.[citation needed]

All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separate himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.

— Numbers 6:5, KJV
