Damn that gurl is pretty...moving to Toronto... And everybody knows stringy greasy haired White women is an "earthy" and "folksy" look. The mulatto girl should look more like Zoe Saldana less like Harriet Tubman.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this girl's hair just the way it is, natural and/or in braids.

After putting that relaxer in my hair that day, I was extremely sick for about two weeks, I even vomited. So, I think that the toxins and chemicals in the relaxer penetrated into my system and made me sick. That was my last relaxer.

My daughters stopped and their hair's beautiful. I don't know, maybe I'll stop. Too lazy to tackle it natural, I believe. I'm not trying to impress anyone, I just throw it up on 5 minutes hot curlers and I'm good to go, when I go, which isn't often by choice, these days. I don't accept change easily at all.

Re: Is Immigration Reform Bad for African-Americans?

On of the problems is this, the U.S. allows very few African descended people into the country, while the floodgates are open for mostly everyone else. Another problem is just what was addressed here, the corporate sponsorship of illegal immigrants. While in many states the problem lies with Latin Americans, up north the problem is eastern Europeans. Something I noted here years ago. Now I'm proven correct in my assessment ie Boston Bombers. But they have no fear of prosecution, even now.

"Morris also scoffed at the notion that undocumented workers aren’t really competing with African-Americans in the workforce because they’re willing to take jobs that nobody else will. He said that immigrants are overwhelmingly taking jobs away from Blacks in three sectors: hospitality services, construction and light manufacturing now and in the future.
