    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.

    @ 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 ?

    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.

    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).
