    You're going down a dark and slippery slope here. The argument could be applied towards anyone, and it's the same argument I've heard racist and bigots used, but slightly modified.
    It's funny because I know a guy who looks Jamaican with his dreads who is one of the most genuinely nice guys I know...Not that niceness is a virtue anyone cares about. This thread is funny.

    As I said, there are a few occasions where people have dreads and I've not thought them an asshole.

    Maybe it's just the part of the United States I live in, but a lot of the people I see with dreads nowadays are overweight, full of themselves, and like to start fights they can't win. In short, they're the typical slobs and/or bullies. It's like half the bullies (no matter their skin color) in high school think it's a great idea to get dreads in their twenties and carry on like they're still in High School. For that reason, dreads are kinda tainted for me. Whenever I see someone with them, at least in real life, I end up thinking, "Oh boy, here we go again..." and do my best to forget they exist.

    But don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that everyone that gets dreads is going to be an asshole. Just like not everyone who wears their pants way lower than they should isn't going to be an asshole. However, a vast majority of them seem to be,

    But it's alright. Do whatever you feel like doing.
    There are some matters that warrant consultation. Hair Style isn't one of them. Worst case scenario- Duby looks like a jackass, but as long as he likes it, who cares? It really doesn't effect anyone and can be easily corrected.

    If he decides to invade Poland or something we can worry about talking sense into him.

    There is nothing new under the sun.
    Everything is approbated. Especially dreadlocks.

    The "your culture, my culture" thing really is just serving one point: Not giving up the entitlement to fight. I do not give a shit about whatever culture there is that isn't egalitarian across all people. If it's racist, I hope everything it has gets stolen to the point that no one on this planet recognises it anymore.

    So, how is this not racism? Because being against it isn't cool (in the exact BS fashion sense of the 80's)?
    That has jack to do with the question.
    Or do we encourage racism now, as long as it's on the right spot in the "coolness spectrum"? That's the point you started out at. Now you can make some argument about it or, withdraw from talking, or I have to take that is your standpoint...

    My super Italian homie Luch has dope dreads and he's white. But he's got mad facial hair which might throw it off.

    No one is calling you a loser or fat. I'm just explaining why I don't like dreads in general.
