This makes me think about a situation over here. A friend of mine is one of those... you know... leftwing revolutionary anti-society guys... wearing Che T-shirts, doing demonstrations and so on.
And one day I meet him and he has "Dread"locks pon his head. And I ask him and he tell me that he got them done for more than 100 Euro, this is more than 150$. And some time before he asked me about Locks and I told him that he should just keep away from any chemical stuff and be patient.
I do not see any sense in such actions... on the one hand those guys pretend beeing so anti-society, anti-money-biz, anti-materialist, anti-capitalist... and then they run such a vanity-money-bizness??
The same for Rases... I know some who have really well done Locks... and I ask what's the reason? Too much care for look, vanity, and fashion amongst many Rases!
Many Japhets want locks like black people have, and do not see, that they just grow them but themselves would have to spend much time and/or money for the same result. Know your identity and don't get caught ina identity crisis trap!
