Im a person with dreads. And i have found that ever since the first day i've had dreads back in june 2003 (6yrs) I have been judged by society. And this isnt always a positive judgement.
After surveying 50 other people with dreads in perth West Australia, I have come to a conclusion that 92 % of the people i surveyed said they have felt that they have been judged based purely on their appearance. STEREOTYPING!

As an example I have had people walk away from me at atm's, I have had my money checked for authenticity (counterfit notes), been random drug tested, turned down from employment, had white colar workers call me a "MONKEY" on a work site (hahaha i laugh at that one - still it aint cool)........... These are just a few axamples of situations i deal with on a daily basis.

Hey im not bitching here, its my choice to have dreads and i love em. But my point is, that it is my choice to have dreads and because i chose a radical hair style it does not then throw me into some stereotyped group. People with dreads come in all sorts, and thats what im trying to convey. Im gona break the stereotypes and re educate the masses and built a more positive image.

Have a look, and tell me what you think of the first two trailers for the film?

"Dreads" (Locks in reality) are not a radical hair type, it is actually what hair does naturally, and people who cut their hair are doing something contrary to nature (do you think people in the jungle have combs and scissors?/!), and should be viewed as different for not having locks. Such is the upside down and backwards vision people have been trained to go through life with. I started dreads (locks) when I was 14 and cut them when I was 16 and 1/2 after a life changing experience ~ In highschool I was steryotyped like you would not believe, being randomly searched, given longer suspensions than students who had done the exact same thing, and things like that. I started them again when I was 21 (after letting my hair grow out for 3 years) and shaved them again after another changing-point in my life. I plan on them one-day locking up again but only like to dread my hair when it is already long and dreads its self naturally without my having to backcomb and/or play with it constantly, unlike some of my friends who start theirs when the hair is only a few inches long, and are always twisting it. The point for me is that they are Spiritual and harness Spirit-energy/prana/chi (which is why natural locks are so much better) and when people discriminate against me for having long hair if it is locked-up or not its that they are actually judging me because of my Spiritual beliefs as well as my physical appearance which bothers me the most (but then again I am used to it by now after having long hair my entire life).
