Reader: I dread more discussion of dreadlocks

We've discussed many weighty subjects on Show and Tell over the past year, but the all-time comment-getter remains Jeff Otte's "White people with dreads." Just yesterday, Bongzilla weighed in with this:

I'm sorry, but every comment I've read on here has been EXTREMELY racist.. All you're doing is finger pointing at each other and calling each other racists with more racist generalizations. Who fucking cares. I thought "hippies" were supposed to be these peace loving pixies that float around the country with fucking flowers in their hair.. You're all ignorant. Don't be so god damn sensitive... You sound like children bickering about who gets the last juice box.

I had baby dreds one summer, and that's when I learned the hard way that white folks' hair is very different that black folks' hair. That shit was itchy, and I had to put so much oil spray on it that I could squeeze my mini-locks and deep fry some oysters.
