A Klansman With Locs Showed Up To A KKK Rally Because Hate Doesn’t Make Sense

Bruh.

Black Twitter was in an uproar this weekend after photos emerged of a Klansman rocking locs at a KKK rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Members of the terrorist hate group took to the streets in Charlottesville on Saturday to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. They were met by hundreds of predominantly black counter-protestors, including photographer and University of Virginia graduate DeVanté Cunningham.

Cunningham posted a photo he took of the Klansman with locs to his Facebook page.

The photo quickly went viral, with many on social media questioning why a white supremacist would wear a style so closely associated with black people.

 
 
 

Speaking to the BBC on Monday, Cunningham said that seeing the man (who refused to engage with him) was surreal.  

“Me and my friend were in total disbelief,” Cunningham explained.

“We really couldn’t believe we had just seen a Klansman with dreads. We’re looking at the KKK here, and dreadlocks are basically a symbol of African culture,” he said. “It was really weird to see.”

Original Post

White folks look as stupid with Locs as black women look in blonde/platinum wigs. It's called racial confusion. White people get their arms and legs black with ink and think that shit looks GOOD. They look like half and half niggers. Black men copy white men and think they look "GOOD" too. Who gives a fuck whether or not that dude's in the Klan? The Klan's nothing but a terrorist group like most white men belong, against blacks. We've been terrorized for 500 (give or take whatever) and we love these dog-like-looking fools. They've driven us as insane as they are. They're all WE KNOW. It's called a seriously FUCKED UP SITUATION we all find ourselves in. Stay out of those gorilla cages and try to make some legitimate money. Of course most of you are going to have to go through THE WHITE MAN. But, that's the WAY IT IS..............Wash your ass, iron your clothes, get your hair cut, shin your shoes, make sure your pants are covering your behind and try to speak to the best of your ability; smell good, but not with too much cologne during the interview.  Good Luck!! There's NOTHING like your FREEDOM. You'll be able to walk in a shower puddle with bare feet like I like to do. Stop making your family members cry. You'll have LEGITIMATE money. Let these bastards kill each other for a change. They've had a field day with our black behinds; they're walking around free as birds with millions to spend and our babies are laying in their graves because of them and AFTER THEY'VE MURDERED US.

Dreadlocks And True Rastafarian
A discussion on the popular “dreadlooks” hairstyle cannot begin without highlighting that probably 90% of the ‘dread locked individuals’ you may meet in Jamaica who may call themselves a Rastafarian, are not true Rastafarians. The mysticism, ability to use ganja under the religious justification defense and all the monetary benefits one may get from this has caused this to become a ‘fad’ and many Jamaican men wore dreadlocks and called themselves Rastafarians when they are not. The “rent a dread” stereotype is true in many cases. Many men see Rastafari as a way out of poverty or a means to migrate to a country with better opportunities. Stereotyping has caused everyone with dreadlocks to be viewed as a Rastafarian. A true Rastafarian is peace loving, kind, very Afro centric and shuns all “schemes” used for monetary gains.

History of Dreadlocks
Dreadlocks are not unique to Jamaica and Rastafarians. The dreadlocks hairstyle originated in Africa and was worn by various tribes there. The earliest tribe this hairstyle can be attributed to is the Masai tribesmen of Kenya. Many of the warriors of this tribe wore this hairstyle. These men sometimes dyed their hair red with root extracts.

Dreadlocks in Jamaica
The dreadlocks hairstyle first appeared in Jamaica during post emancipation. It was a means of defiance for ex-slaves to rebel against Euro-centrism that was forced on them. The hairstyle was originally referred to as a “dreadful” hairstyle by the Euro centric Jamaican society. It later evolved to the term now used: Dreadlocks. Jamaicans also use the term Natty Dreadlock.

Dreadlocks and Rastafari
Rastafarians grow their hair into dreadlocks because it is a part of the Nazarite Vow. (Also their dietary rules are part of the law) All Rastafarians take this vow and claim it is commanded by the Bible (Leviticus 21:5 “They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard nor make any cuttings in their flesh”).

Samson is believed to be a Nazarite with dreadlocks. Many Rastafarians believe that like Samson, their hair is their strength and also their weakness if it is cut off . The belief in the weakness of cutting of the dreadklocks was used as a way to intimidate Rastafarians in Jamaica in the past, as they would be arrested and their hair cut off. This was one of the reasons many of the early Rastafarians moved to isolated areas (bush) of the Island.

To many Rastafarians, dreadlocks also symbolizes the mane (locks) of the lion in the Lion of Judah, which is one of titles given to all Ethiopian Kings. Emperor Haile Selassie was also very fond of lions and had them as pets around his palace. The lion is also seen as an animal that is gentle but powerful when provoked. He is the “King” of the jungle.

  I agree!  But!  It even goes further than that.  Ancient Egyptians wore the original locs despite those who believe that they originated in India as a result of the Shiva God.  Cuz it is a fact that the concept of Shiva himself/herself has been stolen from Egypt and given a different name.  If you look at some of the ancient statues...you can clearly see.  Also Medusa was depicted as a woman with snake in her hair...those snakes were dreads.  Additionally, every time there is a significant behavior or pattern it is always given away to other cultures cuz nobody wanna openly ADMIT that they follow the style of Africans.  Which is a fact they do....you can also see that in America...where whites/Hispanics and other cultures follow the trend of African Americans whether it is in their music, the way we dress, speak, party and live.  I'm too tired to post examples of dread locs in Egyptian culture but I did post two ...plus a photo of a black woman who wore similar locs worn by Medusa.  Bottom line?  Dreadlocs come from Africa.  Not India.  Not from the Germanic group or the Vikings.  It came from us.  Black folks.  But!
