    Really? the kid is going to get that upset over that comment? From Simmons' comment, it sounds like he was asking Rose about the dreads/cornrows as a fashion/in style statement, not so much a thug thing.

    I don't think I've ever read a more overblown piece of writing in my life. Simmons misspoke and then tried to play it off like a joke. That was about it.

    So not knowing the technical difference between dreads and corn rows is a racist position now? One would assume that makes most of our moms "racist".

    Seriously, how rediculous is this drivel?

    Be like making a mistake between a crew cut and a flattop.
