Black Folks Need To Change The Way They Think
So there's a couple of things that offends me about black folks.Im sure other races would offend me with ignorance too but I dont really hang out with other races so Imma just talk about my people.
I love to slap the person who made up the term good hair.Everybody says it and its so flippin ignorant but I cant correct people when they say it cause its too many people to correct.I hate hearing it.Its another put down for being black.People think good hair is straight or curly hair that is really closer to white people textured hair.It makes me feel like the closer to white we are the better we look and thats not the message we should be sending out.Whats wrong with coarse hair.Yes its hard to comb out but the look of it is beautiful to me.I wish I could rock it but my face and head shape wont allow for such a style.But alot of sistas of color look great with natural hair instead of pressed hair.
Now to get on the men.Every time I hear a man say "Man she BAD" they are referring to a more lighter complexion women with long hair.She's usually (in my eyes anyway) a plan jane looking girl with no excitement about her whatsoever.No Im not gay but I think women are very beautiful creatures in all shapes,sizes and color.But a lot of men want almost white women.YES Im light skinned but I still know ignorance when I see it.Music videos remind me of it quit often.Black people when are we gonna love and accept black folks for what they are no matter what the complexion?
