You can't appropriate from a dominant culture though. You assimilate to survive and not be oppressed.
Hi Annsalo, there are black people that are born with sandy-blonde hair, so other blacks coloring their hair sandy-blonde is not an issue with me. In junior high school I'd braid my white and Latino friends hair in cornrows, it wasn't a problem.
+1, I agree some companies are not comfortable with black people wearing their natural hair to work, but their are a few companies changing with the times for the better.
Boko Haram and ISIS have slaves today. Let's focus on real problems, not a narrative that all whites are bad for a few having slaves 200 years ago when white Christians were the first people in the world to systematically end slavery worldwide.
Why do feel so much white guilt Michaela? Did you enslave anyone? Did you steal anyone's culture? It makes no sense to take a position on something you can't possibly understand.
@ Lolita I also seen that video of the girl pulling and pushing the boy with locks in his hair. Physical violence is of individuals that are ignorant, and obviously they can't express themselves in a civil manner, which is called "communication."
You make a good point, black people do wear straight hair that some white people are famous for having. But wouldn't you be concerned if you were mistaken for being a light-skinned black woman, due to a hairstyle that black people are famous for ?
No, I wouldn't be concerned Ann810.
It's fine your not concerned, it seems that ethnic hairstyles are a trend to others also.
But black women often HAVE to wear their hair like the dominant group to face less oppression for being themselves in a white corporate world. It's not the same at all.
Michaela....The Question calls for OUR feelings. I don't believe we need to get "philosophical" & make a major, complex issue out of this simple topic. This is surely not a human right's problem across the world!!
Seriously Michaela? Everyone can choose their own path in America - it's attitude and personal responsibility that get you ahead,not blending in with the white world.
I guess Hip Hop culture has a lot to do with it. Kim Kardashian wore Cornrows and tried to rename them Boxer Braids, when she know a few of her friends been wearing Cornrows all their lives, (her friends Beyonce, Ciara, etc).
The entire Kardashian Clan of brainless females from MOM down 2 the youngest, got wealth & fame on: a Name, self "EXPOSURE". nudity, publicity & sex.Nothing they say or do is relevant to DECENT women. Their men R pigs. Their opinions are CRAP
@ Paula, tell us how you really feel about the Kardashians, wow. The Kardashians women aren't modest at all, seems they want to attract the Hip Hop culture. Bad influence for America. I have respect for Robert Kardashian Sr. & Jr.
I certainly agree with Paula on this! I have no idea how the Kardashians got to be famous...or infamous! Nothing they have done is noteworthy in the least and they represent nothing beyond a glamourized female and an idiotic media frenzy!!
