was that necessary?

I'm not sure what to do about this and was hoping I can get some feedback from folks here.
Someone left a not-so-nice comment on my facebook picture from when I just got my dreads done: "White people with dreads= people who need their asses kicked. They don't work for yall, give it up!"

Then he commented on a picture pre-dreads saying how much better I look: "You look 20x better like this."

So my initial reaction was to just hit the delete button on the mean comment and pretend it was never put there. But now I'm wondering if this is something worth sending the person that felt so strongly about why I shouldn't have dreads a message. I can't really grasp why he felt compelled to tell me what he thought when a. no one asked and b. it's a general comment that he's directing at me..  I can't seem to understand why people want to spread their negative thoughts and energy like that, what do they get out of it? I don't really know how to feel about this because I did put the picture on a group on facebook that is public for anyone to join but am baffled by that person's motivation to say that.. ::scratches head:: ?

on a lighter note
