Noooooooo, Jeffrey! Black women can be proud, self aware and strong, no matter what their hair looks like! Why we gotta be demonizing black lady’s choices all the time?? There was a time, long ago, when straightening black hair was a means of survival, an attempt to assimilate because natural beauty was not praised or appreciated. While it’s fair to say that some black people might still deal with this struggle, it is by no means fair to generalize and say that all black women who straighten their hair are un-proud of their heritage or want to “look” white. Maybe she just likes the sleek way straight hair frames her face, maybe it’s faster and easier to style than figuring out how her natural hair works (cause I know that took me DECADES), maybe it’s a means of navigating whitewashed job markets, maybe it’s just a personal preference and it has nothing to do with wanting to look more white and maybe it’s none of your business! When you stigmatize black women for making a decision about how to wear their hair, whether chemically straightened or natural, you’re taking choice away from them. That is oppressive! Black women deserve to have the choice on how to present themselves just like white women do. This kind of thinking does no one any good, and it’s not elevating us as a community. Compassion and understanding goes a long way. A long, straight, flowy way.
…and lo, it hath begun
