Un effing believeable the repubes have sank to a new low by attacking a black child for what naturally grows out of her head.

For those who say hair should be hair, you need to wake up to the fact that for Black women as long as their is racism in America our hair will always be politicized.

This article gives me even more conviction to continue wearing my hair natural. I came to work today with a mid-sized afro after chopping off relaxed ends last night. I am being accepted here, but in many circles women with nappily curly hair are not.
