Rant time.  
"It doesn't matter what meaning a white person gives their own dreadlocks, dreadlocks already come with meanings that do not pertain to, nor belong on, a white person's head."

This is the most ignorant statement I have ever heard in my life. I was under the impression that people did things for their own reasons, and not someone else's. The meaning I give my own dreads are none of your fucking business. K?

And, you know, (to add to the rant, on a slightly different but related subject), I am so tired of racism. And I don't mean white people towards black people. The kind of racism I am tired of is black people (or any other culture) towards white people. I can't stand it how people are so narrow-minded that they think that racism is only one way. The definition of racism is judging someone based purely on their race.

If a white person said "What's up Blackey?" to a black person they would probably be shot. I'm not even kidding. That's something no one puts up with anymore.

But why is it that if a black person said "what's up Whitey?" it is considered funny or just a joke, or whatever it's considered? I find that extremely insulting.

You know, when someone points at me when they are referring to a white person they know, I find it just as insulting as a black person would if I pointed at them when I was referring to Bob Marley.

I'm not defined by my skin color.
And I resent the fact that I have been called "boring" or anything else because I am white.

I guess I can call you an "asshole", not because of your skin color, but because you are one.
