Dreads as a Symbol of Black Culture
When non black people in the modern west wear dreadlocks, they are appropriating an aspect of black culture. This is a microaggression. Dreads and other natural hairstyles are undeniably deeply connected to black culture, and are therefore seen as a negative trait because of institutional racism. Black people lose jobs over this. They lose credibility in some cases. Non black people do not face the same consequences for having dreadlocks, and do not have the same cultural context to dreads. It is appropriation and harms the black community.
Black people straightening their hair is assimilation. Because of the aforementioned institutional racism and eurocentric western ideals, natural hair is not widely accepted. Therefore, black people often straighten their hair to assimilate (fit into, be accepted as part of, etc) into western culture. Straight hair is not deeply connected to nonblack culture, and does not have the same cultural context as dreads. It is not symbolic in any way to non black people, and if anything has been used to distinguish us from black people and further categorize society. Therefore it is not a microaggression or appropriation. It is assimilation and is not damaging to non black communities. Negative repercussions or discrimination for naturally straight hair is nearly unheard of.
Dreads and other black natural hairstyles are not a cultural norm. They are seen as untidy or dirty. This dates back to slavery and continues today. Dreads are and have been connected to black people in America because they form naturally with textured black hair, which is a unique trait not found in other hair types. Also, hair has been used as a way to "other" people. This happened with red hair and continues to happen with black natural hair. As a species, humans like to categorize and generalize people and things, and that is the heart of institutional racism. That is why dreads in many places are not allowed, or why French Muslim girls may not wear hijabs to school. When a non black individual dons dreads in America, they do so despite this context. They are not judged as harshly for their hair. They do not face the same stereotypes that black people face.
One might argue that nonblack individuals who have dreads are also judged negatively by mainstream society. While this is true, these stereotypes exist because of the connection with black hairstyles to exoticism (like afros, "voodoo magic"/witch doctor stereotype) and also to negative racial traits. Before the 1960s, dreads and afros were worn exclusively by black people. It wasn't "in vogue" so to speak for non black Americans to wear them. Now that there's a certain disconnect between dreads and black people, the negative connotations with dreads would extend to other races as well. The backlash against dreads has racist undertones, and would definitely affect non b Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

Maybe they're a symbol of how someone just feels like having a particular hairstyle, and trying to assign deeper meaning to a fashion decision is intellectually masturbatory.

Should normal people who don't lurk beyond mainstream websites be restricted from obtaining the knowledge that we posses?

It seems like normal people, I'm talking about the very basic normie who doesn't want to earn knowledge, tend to ruin things when they are granted information they most certainly we can all agree on, don't deserve.

I personally think they shouldn't be taught anything.

>The principals and local/state school administration that game the system receive more federal funding, so they can get raises and promotions.
On the other side of that coin, schools that don't perform well enough get shut down (the extra funding comes from consolidation) and the teachers get fired. The students end up transfering to schools further away from home that had better ratings; it costs more money to send them there--in some cases more tax dollars to bus them there, and they gradually bring that school's rating down as well (unless they get kicked out). It creates a shell game of stupid children. I know there are "alternative" schools for the pregnat and drug-addicted teenagers--some of my friends graduated from them--but there's no clear middle ground where students who are not clinically strawberried but also not particularly intelligent can reach their full potential without limiting the potential of others.

>It's that their parents have to work 4 jobs to make ends meet.
Valid point. Closing their local schools and making them send their children to another town for education doesn't help, but the real problem is an economy in which two full-time employed parents do not recieve enough income to raise a child.

Serously though, NCLB is some stupid shit. When this went into place, I was working for my university's tech deparment--suddenly droves of education majors were coming in asking me to teach them how to make a website. Making an HTML home-page apparently became a required part of your resume going into the NCLB system. I think the plan was that they would be doing work-experience and had to self-publish things related to their work; it was pretty clear someone had put these words into law with absolutely no idea how it would play out in reality.

how dare those public schools produce technically competent graduates, don't they know how much our university tech departments like to sleep on the job?

PrettyPony 17/02/20(Mon)07:01 No. 762774

lol, right? I guess you had to see it to realize how stupid this was. These were Education majors being forced to do IT. The people who passed the law probably figured our whole generation was good at computer. These kids however, had spent their college educations learning education theory and coddling--they could barely use a word processor to do their homework. It was my job to assist people in the computer lab--not give them a crash course in HTML and web design, but I did it anyway because I was a good worker like that.
