Dreads, Blackness and Google
For 10 years I've sported a full head of dreadlocks and for 10 years I've encountered Sista after Sista that assumed that I date White girls or at least "look like" I do.
The reality of it is that I haven't dated a White girl in the last 10 years plus. Not only that, I don't even think a White girl has looked my way or at least made it known that she was peeping me.
Now sure, I've seen a gang of Black men with dreads walking with a White Girl, but so. I mean, does that mean that all Black men with dreads are more than likely exclusively into or prefer White women?
I don't think so.
Personally, I think of my dreads as an expression of my Blackness. It doesn't mean that I'm not open minded, nor do my dreads mean that I'm racist toward other people without dreads. My expression of dreadlocks just means: I dig the fact that hair can do what it does.
I'm just saying, I thought dreads was an immediate association with Blackness, Black Hair, Africa, Jamaica, Rasta, etc... I guess Google has other ideas.
