History of locks

I noticed someone posted on here about a guy they saw in the street who said something about respect being something or other.
I am assuming I am not the only person here who has received rude comments about dreads, and how I should not have them because "I'm not black" "Im not a Rasta" "Im not part of that culture" blah blah blah.

I would just like to make it known that dreads DON'T actually belong to the Rastafarian Culture. They actually belong to the Hindu deity Shiva, and that's where they are believed to come from, as well as many other places looong before the Rastas existed..

I learned all of this from Wikipedia, even though I can't actually stand that website.

So for all those who get bu****t thrown at them for not bein' a Rasta, put those fools right.

Also, someone asked me where abouts I was in the midlands, UK.
I'm between Nottingham and Derby, just so you know, sorry I didn't reply.

Anyone else nearby?
