  1. I have locs and my 3 children have locs. I make sure my kids know how to check people who have a problem with their natural hair. Im in the states the high and mighty Jamaicans love to drop their words about locs. Which rocks my brain cause locs, the rastafarian teachings and naturalism is a part of our history. But they not turning up them nose to bleaching which mek them look like raw meat, perm that drop out all their hair and the bag of weave that they investing them last coin in. Foolishness

  2. Anytime you see people who don't like dreadlocks its only because their hair can't grow or because they were brainwash into not loving themselves…without Rasta this world would have been in total darkness…rasta is the ones that said let there be light…

  3. I can’t understand why the Jamaican govt officials are not addressing this illegal school policy….why is it a child with locks don’t have the same right to education as a child without…that’s discrimination and educational neglect…It seems like Jamaica is practicing the same discriminatory policies as the US….I don’t understand why those other parents sided with the school when locks never negatively affect learning but the glue from the weaves/wigs can n does…I’m sure some of these same school officials are wearing their weaves right now …they’re also in mentorship positions as educators to these children who are looking up to them as an example teaching them that wigs and weaves are a better choice that natural hair…how hypocritical is that?…the parents of these children should sue their asses n also implement a no wig or weave policy if children can’t wear locks to school n then we would see how they deal with that infringement because some of them don’t feel good unless they have the European, Indian, Peruvian or Brazilian hair that they actually think is theirs…JAMAICA IS SUFFERING FROM BACKWARDS THINKING N BRAIN FOG…SMH…SAD SAD SAD!

  4. Real Talk. Dem don't treat Rastafarians wid love at all. Rastafarians get more love in other west Indian countries. 7 out of 10 people you see in Trinidad and Tobago are Rastafarians. Are they treated like citizens? Absolutely .Ina my country? Outcasts. My sons have locks and mi keep dem natty clean. Dem goh ah school well dressed and 100% presentable. Mi nuh hold back when it comes to their respect of self. Jamaicans don't see Rastafarians as a valued part of Jamaican society. Too bad though, nuff of us Rastafarians heart clean, pure and caring. Vibes & Blessings souflo ..Niceness..

  5. The bigger heads of jamaica never like nothing until foreign country pick it up. They never appreciate Bob Marley until other nations realized his greatness. That's the reason we r the last country to capitalize off the value of marijuana. I they are ok with putting wigs and all kind of chemicals in there children hair. #Coral garden

  7. Bob Marley get the less respect in Jamaica but him big everywhere all in Asia everywhere I go them say Bob Marley. Caribbean black ppl are slaves and they behave that way.

  8. A suh deh principal here stay from long time with her "rules". Nobody nuh like her. Mi hear seh she ago retire this year. She can gwaan bout her business. She won't be missed

  9. One perfect love Souflo, as RASTAFARI dis topic is not surprising… Weh yuh seh is 💯 % correct as I can verify, dem nuh "like" RASTAFARI much less love … Even di ones who kin teet Wid I… It's only I obvious visitor manner and Sterling strength mek dem pay I any mind… There's no really about it.. Dem nuh love I n I… Right till dis time… Weh yuh seh is also correct about the grooming of locs. I own mother feelings was almost like Bustemante… Only wen I started to groom I locs to appease her after several yrs did she even look at I.. These deep seated prejudices are in dem heart. Check it worldwide it's like it's a crime to have hair on yuh body anywhere except eyelash, eyebrow… And dem pluck out di eyebrow if it look "natural'. The body even worse wax, shave, electrocute it out… Nuh hair no place allowed … And dem call it" professional "… So by following fi dem standards anyone Wid facial hair and ungroomed/unkempt hair is weh dem use to determine whether yuh can fit in dem camp… No yuh can't…. I been going yaad from I a pickney and sight how dem treat RASTAFARI… Has there been improvement.. Yes.. Has there been improvement in the hearts and minds of "society"… Not nearly enough.. As dis beautiful little babygirl story testify… So sight it.. Not even groomed locs can enter in deh.. Any a di teachers weh work in deh have locs Souflo..? Cah dis principle agwaan like a Rastaman buss up har heart wen him put har down and she hate ALL RASTAFARI from dem times… Seriously..☹️ Not right.. More love Souflo, love to family..🙏🏿

  10. I TOTALLY KNOW THAT THE HEAD MISTRESS IS TOTALLY DISRESPECTFUL TO THE CHILD N HER FAMILY. DON'T SHE REALISE RASTA IS A HUMAN BEING TOO. THE CHILD COULD POSSIBLY BE A DOCTOR LAWYER IN THE FUTURE TOTALLY WRONG. SO HOLD ON A MINUTE THAT MEANS RASTA MUST NOT GO TO SCHOOL THEN RASTA MUST NOT GET EDUCATED.TOTALLY DISRESPECTFUL.

  11. this is discrimination and it's not okay for school to stop a black child from an education because of his or hers hairstyle. If they are gonna ban hairstyles ban relaxers!

  12. Jamaica dont like nothing that they produce kmt. Get it together JA, wah kinda fvckery dat? Smh so backwards… is like them waah stuck inna di past, ought to be ashamed. Mi see dem ban kartel music, now them ban our own hairstyle, mi see seh them nuh have nuttin fi do

  13. I started wearing my hair in dread locs about 33 yrs ago because I was enlightened by a Rasta man while visiting Jamaica..I was warned by a friend who worked at my place of employment…that my employer would fire me bc of my hair being in love…I didn't even respond bc trust me I have always had my Attorney's number on speed dial..the school's policy needs to be challenged in the courts…bc it is wrong..

  14. Am so sorry to say this but I never see people eight each other like these people now tha started to eight kids come on look how hard it is to put things together to send your kids to school look at this little girl I can see a bright future ahead why tear her down😣😣😣😣

  15. Soflo ini am Rasta n not all us rastas are tought to be nasty in fact alot of us have been taught to tek care of our bodys properly exspecally innuh this new day with all the deseases gwhain suh but it shouldn't matter
