As part of his show on Thursday, Marc Jacobs sent a cast of predominantly white models down the catwalk with their hair styled multicolored wool dreadlocks.
Stylist Guido Palau told Harper's Bazaar that the look was inspired more by things like rave culture, club culture, or even George Michael.
Apparently, not everyone felt the same of a style that for many are a mainstay in black culture- a symbol of black pride in a society that stigmatizes textured hair while having preference for straight (.. can we refer to that as 'white?) hair.
What's your take on this?

It is cultural appropriation just like eating spaghetti is cultural appropriation of Italians and the wonton soup I'm about to eat is cultural appropriation from Chinese.
As for people who are uptight about this shit, you can go fuck yourselves... and I'm a Liberal.11

It's fashion for goodness sake's.. People are so over sensitive it's ridiculous. When I had yarn braids in my hair all the black people around me seemed fine with it and even complimented me on it, the only people who had a problem with it were, surprise surprise, BLM justice warriors on Twitter.. and guess what, they were the exact people who then proceeded to wearing weaves and relaxing and bleaching their hair to achieve a "European" hair style. But of course it's only "cultural appropriation" when white people wear hairstyles and borrow cultural elements from other cultures. I feel like some people are so focused on finding racism in everything that they don't even realise how they are turning into racists themselves.
Sorry, but I can't even take debates like that seriously anymore...8
