Last week, in a decision that contorted both law and fact, a state judge ruled against an illiterate, intellectually disabled black man named Jerry Hartfield. Hartfield has been imprisoned for more than 33 years — without a valid conviction or sentence authorizing his confinement. In the latest decision, the judge ruled that even though state and local officials clearly were negligent in letting Hartfield slip through the cracks all these decades, there is nothing in the Constitution that provides him with any protection from being retried. It’s the fact that 10 months have passed since the state courts in Texas (after many years of prodding) first acknowledged the terrible mistake that was made in this case.

    ohheyitsshanaj asked: Dreadlocks (or similar styles) have also been traced back to Vikings, Greeks, and Nordic people, long before the African slave trade. Dreads do not belong to African cultures.



    I’m not saying that they belong to African cultures. I’m saying that dread locks (thus named by enslaved African cultures) have a cultural significance to cultures of Africans that were formerly enslaved. For example, henna is from the henna plant and the plant itself doesn’t belong to any culture, but how it is used (an aspect of the plant), and the cultural significance it has is what makes that aspect of henna belong to a particular culture.

    Do you even know where the term dreadlocks comes from?

    Here: Dreadlocks

    My point: anyone can have matted hair, but an aspect of matted hair has cultural significance to a particular culture and that aspect is called “dreadlocks”.

    Call another aspect of matted hair something else.

    This needs more notes.
