I like to use the term dreadlocks or just dread. For InI know the dreadlocks are dreadful amongst the heathen/babylon society. Back in slavery one of the first things they would do to the slaves is shave the head. I think it is important for us to maintain the term dread. Just as the Ethiopian soldiers put fear into the Italians when they went into battle with their natty dreads. We trod through Babylon the same way.
