Before genetic admixture, which is a result largely of the very negative and dehumanizing historical processes of slavery and colonialism/imperialism, this was not the case.


Again, since when does an African woman HAVE to be mixed in order to have long hair? I find all of this generalization extremely offensive.

Yes, I will admit, [loosely] curly hair is NOT typical for an African woman, but long hair is NOT a rarity, as you have stated sister Oshun. There are PLENTY of black women w/long hair and plenty more could have long hair if they would stop putting harmful chemicals on their heads all the time! From what I have heard, natural African hair grows like weeds when it is chemical free. Smile
