I was reading up my daily blog post over at Relaxed Hair Theraphy on the conflicts between team natural and team relaxed. I had a good laugh going through all the comments and its really insightful what I’ve gleaned from other blogs regarding this issue as well.
I perceive there are deep ingrained issues affecting the African American community within the United States and this is reflective in the wide opinions freely shared on some of these hair boards. Pharell Williams made a statement that struck me on the Oprah Show yesterday. I remember him saying “I don’t live life purposely as a black man’. Basically, he was trying to relay the importance of living your life irrespective of your skin colour. A lot of ladies on these hair forums are placing themselves behind bars.
It’s just hair and it makes me crazy. Brett Dennen & our own Femi Kuti couldn’t have said it better in this all time favorite song of mine.
