Shocking amount of non-lighthearted vitriol for a lol-based blog, imo.

Seems to me that her beef with dreads is her [mis]understanding that they are unclean - a common enough misconception, I guess.  Perhaps part of what grates worse than the ignorance and vitriol is the caveat that she is only talking about white people - not to make that distinction might mark her out as a bit of a racist, right?  And that would be Wrong!  But levelling all that spite solely at the caucasian dreadlocked community is fine?  Especially the Jewish girls.

It just seemed so vicious and out of place for the blog... I don't know...

I suppose I should just suck this up with the rest of the pointless and ill-informed commentary of the ignorant?
