In your book "Diary" Kola Boof, you advance the supposed tradition that without nappy hair the black man is no longer black or African. You advance this idea all throughout the book as some ancient African principle, which I don't believe it is.

This is no different than the brown paper bag rule.

You're not Mother Africa, you're an African racist is what you are.

You are saying that because my hair is not "the crown" then I am no longer in the black family and basically inferior to socalled "authentic blacks" and am kicked out.

My teacher says that you are doing this to create a black standard for darker blacks that will exclude the offspring of interracial couples and lighter skinned people of African descent.

I am here to tell you that your plot won't work.
