Dreadlock journey (through the years)
It all started it with the twists, everyone that’s a dreadhead knows how stressful those days can be. Anyways, I started growing out my hair on halloween of 2006 and finally got twists on June 28th 2007. I was 12 at the time. Now I’m 19, which makes my dreadlocks 7 years old. I honestly can’t picture myself without my dreads, truthfully. They’re apart of who I am. They’re apart of my identity but they surely don’t define me, as some stereotypical people may perceive.
My advice to anyone growing dreads: have lots and lots of patience, because it’s a really long journey, and be ready for all the stereotypes that comes along with it. A lot of people are gonna be like “don’t grow dreads, you don’t look right with them” but when your dreads get long as shit they’re gonna be like “no, don’t cut them! I can’t see you with a haircut”. Fuck their opinion and do what’s best for you. Last but not least, be yourself
That is all.

Our Black History Facts #1
Elijah McCoy (1843–1929) invented an oil-dripping cup for trains.
Fast Fact: Other inventors tried to copy McCoy’s oil-dripping cup. But none of the other cups worked as well as his, so customers started asking for “the real McCoy.” That’s where the expression comes from.
Are you serious??? Nice
"Gay marriage is still illegal. Can we get a ‘boo’ for that? It’s crazy to outlaw marriage. Marriage is a happy thing. You shouldn’t be able to vote on someone else’s happiness. These people don’t know these gay people, they’re not going to know them, they’re not gonna be their friends…they have control over their lives. That’s not fair.”
This reminds me that anyone going to the Olympics can get fined 3500 and jail time if they do any gay rights activism over there.
