Question..Raise your hand if you got dreads?

    I have a good friend who has dreads, listens to Reggae and has all these rasta books. And he's white.

    Correct me if I'm wrong arent Rastafarian beliefs based around rejection of the white man.

    Why would a white person be all down for Rasta if it's supposed to be anti-white?
    Can any one enlighten me on the subject?

    'Dreadlocks were worn in parts of Africa and Asia for spiritual reasons long before the Rastafarian's in the Carribbean starting wearing them. The Phaoroahs are believed to have worn locks, but we have no conclusive evidence to prove it. We do have evidence that King Tut had dreadlocks, and they are still intact to this day. But the first writing we have about dreadlocks is in the Veda scriptures of India, the earliest piece is dated to 1800 BC. We do have some evidence that the Celts wore dreadlocks. One of the examples is from Caesar, he described the Celts as having "hair like snakes".

    Next come news of past Germanic tribes wearing locks, the Greeks, people of the land called Nazareth such as Samson, Pacific peoples, Naga Indians (known also as Serpent People).

    Today in India, dreadlocks are spotted among Sadhus (holy men). Dreadlocks are also worn by and in Ethiopia, Bahatowie priests of the Amhara nation believed to be of the Coptic faith, Senegal, Baye Fal, believed to be a sect of Islam, Mouridism, also a sect of Islam, Sudan, several small sects of Islam Kenya, Akorino of the Kikuyu nation, Oromo Beja or a sect called "the church of the living god", Ghana, the Bono of Techiman, the Fitish priests, the Somali, the Galla, the Maasai, the Mau Mau, the Tanzania, the Aborigines, and the New Guineans.'

    "We do have some evidence that the Celts wore dreadlocks."

    that's me sorted for a tenuous justification then :king:
