LMAO...look at my siggy. That should answer the question.
I am still relatively new....so I don't know where this post would even go. I looked around, and I am still unsure. So If i Put it in the wrong place I apologize.
Now to the point.
I was on facebook just earlier today-Kim Kardashian's fan/profile page. And they had this thread going in the discussion board entitled Light Skin vs. Dark Skin Women.
Now....I know I know....sigh...I wasnt falling for the trap. I just went in to inform the fools that it really is a moot point and has no bearing. (It still drives me crazy people are arguing and getting mad over people and their personal preference. I don't even care.)
But as I was posting that I noticed that this female above me had proclaimed that "Black women do not have thick hair". .....I just sat there reading it like this is ridiculous.
Her exact words:
"and btw, black women do not have thick hair. they get hair extensions and weaves to make their hair appear like ours[My note: She meant ours as in white women]... i don't curl my hair to make it look thicker."
And I went from not participating, to nicely explaining to her about black women and our hair. About the varieties in textures, and how we do in fact have thick hair. She was just misinformed...the poor girl...
I probably will send her a link to LHCF, and all the other sites and youtube channels. Show her that yes indeed, we have thick hair. And we do not all wear weaves and extensions all the time. sigh. Thank God for this community, because outside of LHCF, nappturality, fotki, and youtube....I think I might have been banging my head against the wall.
Sorry for the long post, just had to vent
-Saving the world one uninformed person at a time....-
She made a sex tape with a famous person's brother and now she parlayed that into a Reality TV show and now dating another BLACK NFL star. NO Armenian man is going to want her now because of who she has been with that is for sure. Oh yeah they will bang her but they are not marrying her that is for sure.
I'm not sure whether sending her a link to this site would be conducive to be honest. All she might end up seeing are black women having to use 'coochie' cream and a million other things just to attain the amount of growth white women gain without doing much. I think Youtube tutorials would better serve the purpose.
Oh and by the way the girl that originally wrote the comment that black women dont have thick hair.. she deleted all her post.
We all know that most black women have very thick hair naturally.
To be fair, though, a lot of black women have very thin hair from over-processing due to chemical treatments & plenty of black women "add tracks" for thickness...so....while she is ignorant and should not have over-generalized an entire race, it's not completely inaccurate.
I've noticed them obviously throwing their hair around in the mirror while in the restroom at work.... Soooo I turn around the make sure my "behind" is looking okay.
It stops the drama immediately!!!!!
