Anonymous asked: why arent black men a part of the natural hair movement?
Black men can feel free to wear their natural hair.
The natural hair moment is for black women
Hmm. This is debatable. Black men tend to cut their hair short because “success doesn’t come till they cut it all off”.
wait what the fuck…the natural hair movement is for black people…we’ve ALL been told that our natural hair is ” unprofessional ” and ” ugly ” and the natural hair movement lets us ALL know that our natural hair is beautiful and we should wear it despite what people have to say about it..
The natural hair movement is for Black people, but Black women first. As Black people we are all dehumanized and devalued for our enthic features, we’re all harmed by racism, hair politics. And white supremacy makes us perpetuate these fake hair politics and anti Blackness to each other, we all need the natural hair movement, but you cant ignore that Black women experience things us Black men don’t. The natural hair movement is for all of us but you cant ignore that its suppose to be a safe place for Black women first.
hm…i can agree with that actually
