My White Daughter Teaches her Japanese Friends how to Dreadlock Hair

Zaffron has to “teach” her 1st grade class how to do “something” on Tuesday. She’s decided to teach her classmates how to dreadlock hair. We had a lesson tonight using yarn!

For those of you who don’t understand why this is interesting: Zaffron, my oldest, the one doing the “teaching,” is caucasian. Her classmates are almost exlusively Japanese. Of course, she knows about dreadlocks because her sister, Mgazi, who is from Africa, has 155 of them. (Correct that, as of a few weeks ago, she only has 152. See Dreadlock Carnage.)
