Reply to "Would Black women choose, date, or marry a brother who perms or straightens his hair?"

I'm wondering whether you would also refuse to date a down to earth, intelligent, strong Black women who altered to the texture of her hair to be more kinky?

Sure would. And just to add, if there was a billion dollar industry aimed at doing what you suggest, I would clean Ebony Rose's home and yard for free, for one year, using only my tooth brush and baking soda.

Some Black women are born with wavy or curly hair that doesn't grow well into a 'fro. Would going to a salon to make her hair more 'fro worthy lessen her in your eyes? Just playing devil's advocate here. I think I understand what you mean, though: I have always found this insistence upon having straight or "good" hair bewildering, and throughout most of my adolescence refuse to perm or straighten my hair to conform to some whacked out ideal. Is it the act of changing the texture itself, or the texture of choice that you find unappealing?

It would be refreshing to see a movement of Black women spending money to get nappy hair. I would celebrate in the street.
