Reply to "Hair snobs"

fro The first thing I gonna do is FIND that book "400 Years Without A Comb" and get the author's name and pass it on to sistas here who haven't read it. It is dynamic! And true some sistas are DIVIDED when it comes to HAIR and COMPLEXION. Instead we should be PROUD. CUZ no other CULTURE of women can PRODUCE an array of BEAUTIFUL children....like flowers...hence the phrase: flower child. We have been CONDITIONED to react this way. The first thing some of us do when children are born is look at the grade of hair. It's brainwashing from the European...this hair thang. They did it the French Quarters [like they did in Europe's brothel] with the mulatto women who raised their girls to cater to the French man and be his "debutant" whore NEVER his wife....and on the island the hair/color division it's done as well. So much that they had to announced to the people NOT to use the bleaching cream cuz it is so toxic and dangerous. Light-skin means BETTER cuz EVERYBODY with this mentality not only really want to be like MASSA but want LOOK like him/her too. The hair. The skin color. How can you HATE someone and want to be like "him/her" at the same time? And as SMART as we ARE why is it that is the same OLD BACKWARDS ASS perspective that if you're black STEP BACK, if you're BROWN stick around BUT! If you're LIGHT....you're ALRIGHT! cuz you're almost WHITE! Sistas [and brothas] NEED to STOP this. RIGHT NOW! massa did'nt care what color slave women were or how nappy their hair was when he was RAPING them.... I come from a salt and pepper family [we all do] some kinfolk with light skin, some kinfolk with dark skin....MASSA DON'T CARE the shade of black folks cuz they're still NIGGAHS to him. We need to EMBRACE WHO WE ARE....and that means OUR HAIR too. Cuz I have NEVER been my HAIR. NEVER! I have taught my girls the same thing so when whitegirl comes up to them and say "can I touch "it." Like "it" is something that fell to the earth unnatural....I taught them to say....Heck NAWL... I'm not a "thing"....I'm a human being!" And they never ask them that again. So ladies, with our newer generation of young girls....we have a LOT of WORK to do! Especially if we are to pass black is beautiful pride on to the next legacy of blackfolks, that is. fro
