“There were no black people in my son’s elementary school, and he got dreads.

I told him if the kids teased him, to go to the office and tell the nurse he was sick so he could phone me to come pick him up. Well, the whole day went by, I got no phone call, so when he got home I asked him how his day went. He said everyone made fun of him, called him a girl.

Bored of those old, heavy dreads, but too attached to give them up?

How about an asymmetrical cut and a little colour? More pics here:

RIP Lewis Marnell, 1982-2013

“Skateboarding took a massive unexpected hit late last week, with the sad and untimely passing of Lewis Marnell.

Lewis’ mother issued the following statement over the weekend:

“FYI and to clear up any quandries relating to Lewis’ sad & untimely passing, he had a massive hypoglycemic reaction which did not respond to ingested glucose. He was at home and was discovered by his wife around 6.30 on Friday night Melb time. It was not possible to resuscitate him and we are all still trying to come to terms with this tragedy. We ask everybody to send out thoughts and prayers of love and comfort. Please keep his memory alive and let this not be a terrible waste.” ”
