Picture from Wikipedia. A sadhu in India, with his hair in jata.
Dreadlocks, also known as dreads, locs, or jata, are intentionally matted and sculpted ropes of hair. (Wikipedia) A regular misconception is, those who have consciously formed dreadlocks do not maintain their hair, but that’s usually not the case. In fact many dreadlock care regimens require the person to shampoo and condition more often or as often as a person without locs would.
• According to CNN, there’s a huge controversy in the state of San Francisco University. There’s a video that went viral of a white male student wearing dreadlocks and a black woman claiming it belongs to “their” culture. I find it interesting. CNN is unaware of further details due to the fact that both parties refused to interview. But, what gets me is, how does this “black woman” know what culture this man follows or believes in. Why does one stereotype another due to the color of there skin? Can we honestly tell where one is from? Does the color of your skin tell what religion or what one’s believes are?
My conclusion, I think hair is a reflection of who we are as individuals, and no one has the right to tell us how we should wear our hair or clothes! So go on and ROCK it!
• Did you know that there was a magnitude of 6.9 earthquake in South Pacific island nation of Vanuatu on Sunday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
• Refugees are still till this day fleeing for freedom. Leaving everything they worked for in Syria and Iraq for a better life. They arrive in Greece for hope and kindness. They travel in groups of 150 people per raft thru the sea with children on their laps in the cold nights with no food just hope. Hope to make it thru the next day and arrive alive. A good friend of mine Danielle Butin, founder of AFYA Foundation, along with Sara Schuler and their team have gathered containers of medical supplies to help Greece tend to these people.
