All the nonsense arguments we love to hate.
Celtic Dreads vs Afro-Caribbean Dreads
These are Celtic dreads:
This a stone carving of Celtic dreads:
This is a guy with Celtic Dreads and a woad face tattoo/body art:
In sharp contrast this is Afro-Caribbean dreads:
Yeah, you see because the two cultures have different hair texture the results are different but Celtic people had dreads too and if you want to prevent our culture from wearing them then I’m afraid you’re participating in “cultural erasure”!
NO ONE IS DOING CULTURAL ERASURE BUT YOU.
IF YOU WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW CELTS HAD DREADS STOP WHITE PEOPLE FROM CLAIMING THEY ARE CELT JUST CAUSE THEY HAVE LOCS.
STOP CELTS FROM DREADING THEIR WHOLE HEAD
STOP CELTS FROM CALLING IT DREADS
IT IS CALLED GLIB AND IF YOU WERE A CELT YOU WOULD KNOW THAT
IF YOU WERE A CELT YOU WOULD KNOW THE WHOLE HEAD IS NOT DREADED AND THOSE PICTURES YOU GOT OFF GOOGLE ARE NOT AN EXAMPLE OF CELT DREADS.
NICE TRY BUT NO.
that stone carving is not even of celts you historically illiterate piece of shit
THEY USED A STONE CARVING OF BLACK HEBREW ISRAELITES AND SAID IT WAS CELTS IM WEAK LMAO
ALSO THAT ISN’T EVEN A DUDE IN WOAD FACE THAT’S JUST A GUY WITH FACE TATS
LMAO IN YOUR DEFENSE OF CELTIC MATTED HAIR (WHICH WAS NOT DREADS) YOU ACTUALLY SHAT ALL OVER THEIR CULTURE WITH YOUR INCORRECT STATEMENTS, CONGRATS
I’d say that what raging racists and Hollywood apologists find most offensive in your tumblr is that everyone else is actually listening.
I think you make a rather interesting point here, not only in that apparently people are listening, but also that the sheer violence of the reactions to children’s films goes to show just how desperately important it is that people of color are represented.
Which is interesting when you consider that once the “historical accuracy” argument is exhausted, the absolute deluge of “How DARE you care about something so unimportant as a kid’s movie!!!” comes right afterwards.
After all, why violently defend something with that kind of actual rage if it isn’t important? Making sure only people who look like you are seen in media consumed by mostly children, seems like a rather important agenda to have if you prefer that the status remain quo, so to speak. Children, who are more vulnerable to internalizing messages that devalue them, which is backed up by science if science is your thing.
