Please take down your dreadlocks, the cultural appropriation you and people like you perpetuate is the reason why my brothers and sisters are denied employment and discriminated against because their locs are stereotyped as "dirty" and "unkempt".

I wash my hair regularly yet I also face the exact discrimination when it comes to hair. People judge dreadlocks no matter what colour you are

"dreadlocks" or more respectfully known as "locks" were common in many cultures around the world. vikings and pirates both wore braids and locks because long hair symbolised power but honestly who has time to brush when your doing yoir viking thang!?

guys get your facts straight before you assume all white people are terrible thiefs out to steal your culture. fyi, POC’s aren’t the only ones with a background of culture and traditions…

A cat’s tongue has special features called “papillae”. The papillae are small hair-like growths that point towards the back of the mouth. These slightly hooked growths are very strong because they are made of keratin, the same component you can find in human fingernails. The papillae are not only used for self-grooming, but also holding food and hunting. Along with strong jaws, the papillae help felines hold their prey tight. In the wild, these miniature teeth help lick the meat off a bone so there are no leftovers. Moreover, there is a special papillae type at the tip of the tongue and along its sides. These papillae have large taste buds. Thanks to them, cats have a keener sense of taste than dogs.
