On the brown furniture Thread
ABM stated that he found it hard to take
the woman who had bought the furniture
seriously because of her fake hair.

Now my Question IS why do Many American black
women wear weave in a texture that is
not EVEN Close to their own natural hair texture?

Are YOU Embarassed to wear your hair Natural?
Why is it that Many foreign Black women do NOT
WEAR Ridicoulously FAKE LONG Weaves to the SAME extent
that American Black women do?
Do Not Think that Foreign blacks or Africans are All ugly because they are Not

They KNOW HOW TO KEEP IT REAL.

Gimme a break! I don't think black women are obligated to justify their preferences in hair wear to black men. Black men have not earned an explanation or an excuse. Until these less-than-perfect brothas get their act together and show loyalty to black women, then black women shouldn't feel the necessity to please or placate them. And it's not like black men don't go for superficiality in areas other than hair. Get outta here.!

Back in the 60s black men used to wear press and curls. Then in the 80s they wore jheri curls. Now, they get texturizes and put waves in their hair.

I think the question is problematic. It assumes that a hairstyle represents a person's self-image. Sometimes, it does. Sometimes, it doesn't...

As I said elsewhere, you can have a woman with a natural you hates her blackness. She likes the natural hairstyle, hates her nose, color, lips, etc....

There are so many, and different scenarios.

The most vocal black folks are the very ones full of blatant contradiction. They think "nappy-headed" is a put-down, yet they babble about self-hate. They lament the mysogny of rappers but are in denial about them being the ones who supplied the bullets for the cheap shot taken by Don Imus. At least this volatile issue takes our minds off of Iraq.

Cynique, are you saying Imus could/would not have insulted these women were it not for the language of gangsta rap???? Prior to this form of music White men were not insulting Black women?????

we should be careful, here. the context is, we live in a white dominated world, where the white standard always looms...so among jews, italians, etc...you have the same issue...they blond their hair, get nose jobs, and asians also get their eyes fixed so that they look for european...so while i agree that rappers and black people in general have issues of color and features...the context is white supremacy!

I don't think Imus would've tried to be hip by adopting the rap lingo if he wasn't familiar with what this lingo was, Yvette. White folks love to try and talk black. Had he not had a command of hip hop slang I doubt if Imus would've called those young women "whores"; but using 'hos gave the word a different more "playful" connotation.

Thats because STUPID-ASS, CUM-DUM, DOWNLOW, NIKKAS like you keep putting there own insecurity and self-hating issues off on Black women. And let me tell you Asswipe, Black women wouldn't perm, straighten, and weave their hair if many if not the majority of Black men didn't insist that they do it.

And what is your facination with Black women anyway? SInce you HATE them so much!!! Why are you so facinated with there hair? Are you some damn hairdresser?

AND PLEASE DON'T SIT UP HERE AND INSULT US BY HAVING US BELIEVE THE THE "SOLE" REASON YOU HATE BLACK WOMEN IS BECAUSE OF THE WAY THEY WEAR THERE HAIR!! Like if Black women "kept it real" you would have more respect for them.

One thing Black women aren't is STUPID!! They know how stupid, self-loathing, White worshipping, cocksucking Nikkas like you think. Them being Black and Women is there only crime in "your eyes".

Also, nobody cares about your Whorish, half-breed mothers hair Biyatch!!! So stop talking about it!!

Do us all a favor and just shoot yourself. Put your little half-breed, wanna be mullatto ass out of "commission". Thats the best gift you can give yourself.
