quote:Our women of the south no longer possessed long flowing hair..however, our women created some of the most feminine and beautiful styles this world has known with their wooly hair.
This sounds like it was written by a man/person that believes that only "long flowing hair" can be feminin with a second hand compliment to Black women (or other races of women that do not possess "long flowing hair" naturally).
I might remind this writer that white men and Asian men and Native American and middle Eastern men have "long flowing hair" all day long.----Oh, and a lot of tranvesdites have "long flowing hair."
The western media has brainwashed everyone else on the planet to belief that the white man's version of beauty and femininity is the only beauty or femininity, and evidently, it does not even escape the writer of that passage, where, while trying to give a compliment to Black hair/Black women's hair, still has a Freudian slip in his writing.
Nature and environment is the ONLY reason for different hair textures; hair is not even alive once it grows out of the folicle, and humans possess hair only as remnents of an environmental history from when it was necessary---for body warmth in the cold, or as a shield from the burning sun, etc.
