COME ON SOCIAL JUSTICE IMBECILES, LET’S PLAY YOUR SILLY GAME.
Leave it to some social justice millennial student telling us that something that we’ve enjoyed for centuries has suddenly become racist. The Cultural Appropriation Brigade has now decided that dreadlocks cannot be worn by white people. We know this because a video has gone viral, in which a female African-American student at San Francisco State University called Bonita Tindle seems to attack a white man with dreads called Cory Goldstein. In the video – which has been viewed more than three million times – Tindle says Goldstein cannot have dreads, as the hairstyle comes from ‘my culture’.
I came across this article: https://thetab.com/2016/04/05/dreadlocks-white-people-83996 and video. What’s wrong with you people? Let me clue you in a little bit, yeah?
“Cultural Appropriation” is a phrase commonly heard throughout college campuses in our country. As a result, the term and its use has bled into mainstream media and politics. For those who are fortunate enough to remain ignorant of its prevalence, the phrase is usually used in the context of one person “appropriating” another person’s culture. For example, if a “white” person of European descent wears a sombrero to a Halloween party, this will be seen as cultural appropriation.
The term “cultural appropriation” is now overused and oversimplified. Anything can be construed as cultural appropriation, as evidenced by this cringe-inducing video. For those who lack the time to watch it, the video is less than a minute long and shows two black students confronting a white student who was sporting dreadlocks, which they perceived as cultural appropriation because dreadlocks are a stereotypically “black” hairstyle.
DREADLOCKS DO NOT BELONG TO BLACK PEOPLE
The oldest known language, religion and culture on the planet has been said to be around Mesopotamia, Hindu Kush valley, and the Himalayan mountain region. Hinduism, is the oldest psychedelic religion on the planet. Sanskrit is the oldest language. Ancient Hindu literature are the first and oldest literary works of man.
As you can clearly see from many established sources of Human Migration out of Africa, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Indus valley regions and central Asia were populated roughly 80Kya to 100Kya (Kilo–thousand years ago).
The history of dreadlocks is varied and differs depending on who you ask. But we must abstract away from all of that and simply take a look into history. Regardless of their origin, dreadlocks have been worn by nearly every culture at some point in time or another. Roman accounts stated that the Celts wore their hair ‘like snakes’. The Germanic tribes and Vikings were also known to wear their hair in dreadlocks. Northern Europe hadn’t been populated until 40Kya. So we can eliminate everything but Northern Africa and India.
Dreadlocks have been worn by the monks of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, the Nazarites of Judiasm, Qalandri’s Sufi’s, the Sadhu’s of Hinduism, and the Dervishes of Islam, and many more! There are even strong suggestions that many early Christians wore dreadlocks; most notably Sampson who was said to have seven locks of hair which gave him his inhuman strength.
The pharaohs wore dreads, but their first literary mention is said to be in the Hindu Vedic scriptures dating from around 1700BC. The God Shiva wore ‘matted’ dreadlocks. So it is perhaps the Indians who have the dubious honour of ‘inventing’ dreadlocks, and we could reasonably conclude that the African Egyptians culturally appropriated dreads from them.
SHIVA: THE ADHIYOGI (THE ORIGINAL YOGI)
Shivaism was one of the first religions in india because Shiva is the Hindu equivalent to Adam. Shiva was the first man on earth and parvati his wife was created by Valmiki from the flesh of Shiva’s thigh. Shiva Ji did have dreadlocks and also black skin. It was from Shiva Ji that consumption of ganja was included in religions. Shiva Ji used to consume Ganja and meditate on the top of the kailash mountain for years.
Marijuana is most closely associated with Shiva, one of the three primary Gods of the Hindus. Shiva, the Sanskrit word “Śiva”, शिव, means “auspicious, propitious, gracious, benign, kind, benevolent, friendly”. The foundations of Śiva in Hindu mythology, language and proper Sanksrit is “śī” which means “in one everything exists, pervasive, unity” and va which means “personification of grace”.
Shiva, throughout the ages and through many sub-cultures, has been known by many names, such as Viswanathan (lord of the universe), Mahesha, Maheshvara, Shankara, Neelakanta, Subhankara, Trilokinatha, Mahadeva, Shambhu, Rudra, Hara, Trilochana, Devendra (chief of the gods), (lord of the three realms), and Ghrneshwar (lord of compassion).
Marijuana is considered Shiva’s favorite plant. In one legend in the vedas, it is told that Shiva, after a heated argument with his family, went to rest in the garden, but found it very hot. Shiva rested under a Marijuana tree. The shade of the tree was cooling and when we awoke from his sleep, he was so delighted and rejuvenated from eatings Marijuana flowers that he gifted the flower and leaf to human kind.
The Muslim Mecca was Shiva Ji’s house which was built for him by the patron god of construction Vishwakarma, the Sri Lanka palace of Rakshish Ravana (Black Indian) was also built by Lord Vishwakarma.
That is why there is the black stone there which every pilgrim kisses. The black stone is from Shivaism which is called a linga. It represents the male genitals of Shiva Ji. The genitals of Shiva Ji are held sacred because it is from those genitals that Shiva Ji gave life to the world.That is the beginning of man.
Hinduism has been there since the start there was no religion before hinduism because It was from Shiva Ji (Adam) that the whole of mankind was created. When there was nothing on this planet but water before anything existed. Valmiki sat on the sacred lotus flower and created the world within 36 yugg. If Shiva Ji was the first man then Hinduism is the first religion and culture.
SHIVA JI WAS A BLACK-SKINNED, GANJA-SMOKING DREAD-LOCKS, MOUNTAIN-LOVING FIRST-MAN-GOD OF INDIA
Anuman means beast of the jungle in the Ibo (or Igbo) language. The Ibos are one of the major tribes in Nigeria . Hanuman is the Hindu monkey God, the Avatar of Shiva, and the mighty Stoned Ape. Igbo is one of the four official languages of Nigeria and is a member of the Volta-Niger branch of the Niger-Congo family of languages. It is spoken by about 18 million people in Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea.
Recent DNA test conducted by National Science Institute of India confirm that Dravidian DNA shares same chemistry and structure as typical Black people. The climate and way of living may be different which could have changed Dravidians to the way they are now, but the Origin is from Mother Africa. Africa is the origin of the hominid species. However, there is no mention of dreadlocks before the Vedic Hindus. Shiva’s image is as old as the earliest date is the legendary one, which Prakhar offers: 10,000 BCE, about 12,000 years ago, the date of the Rig Veda, according to the Rig Veda. The earliest historical date would be the historical date of the known written texts of the Vedas, about 2,500 BCE, or 4,500 years ago.
The Eyptian mummys with dreadlocks were not uncovered until roughly 3600 years ago. Dreadlocks originated between the migration from Africa to to other climates, where change in the environment, moisture, humidity levels played a key role in knotting some hair into Jata, or Jaat, or Gittah, the name for “knot” in English.
For their reductive mindset seems to be: let’s trace everything back to its very beginning, then ban the rest of the world from appropriating it. So let’s give India its dreadlocks back. Shiva and Shiva culture was one tremendous strong force that kept India united through history.
When the British took Indian and African slaves to the West Indies, the Black people “appropriated” from the Hindus. Ganja is actually pronouced Ganjj (meaning “knots”), knots in the tree, where the Cannabis flowers are located, in the knots of the plants. Ganjj. Dreadlocks are called Jatta, Gittah, Gitth, Jaat, pronounced as “Jutt” or “Gith” etc. meaning “knot” similar to the world Ganjj (pronounced as Gunj), essentially translating to Flowering Top, which in turn gets translated in the mind to Fertile/Flowering Thought, because when you consume Ganja, your thoughts become fertile, and flower and blossom into true wisdom. There is a lot of deep meaning behind the world Ganja.
Clearly… the black people are original, right? If you want to play this stupid game, let’s play it. Because when we actually stat playing, we discover that it was the black people who appropriated the Hindu and Vedic culture and the Sanskrit language.
THE CONCEPT OF CULTURAL APPROPRIATION IS JUST SILLY
Sharing cultures is how humans learn. The SJW and Feminists, the Social Marxists, the Cultural Goons have taken this to the extreme. You are dividing, segregating and undoing all the collaborations cultures have done across time.
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH SHARING CULTURES! IT IS NOT APPROPRIATION!
I still find it hard to wrap my head around. Why is it that people should be divided based on their ethnicity and bound to act in a certain way or prevented from acting differently? Stop with the Tribalism. Grow up.
