Lexingon Senior Isaac Edmonds has grown his dreads for 10 years. In spite of media stereotyping of black men with dreads as drug users or delinquents Edmonds is opposed to cutting his hair to fit society standards. “Because society says, because of the media, African American males do this, that one thing, or the other. And in order to make it in the real, world my mom she said you might have to decide to cut them off, and I told her I really don’t want to sell myself to society just because of that stereotype that black men with dreads have.”Bria Granville/HERALD
