oncemorearoundtheblog-deactivat said: Since the natural hair community is exclusively black, should I, as a white woman with extremely curly hair and many years of curly problems behind, unsubsribe from countless natural blogs and never chat about hair with my black friends?

Yes yes you should and after that you should look yourself in the mirror and come to the conclusion that you cannot have everything especially a sliver in a beauty community that is catered to your white ass. Another thing you should do is grow the fuck up and get out of here with this ‘whoa is me shit’  like your curly hair equals centuries of deriding you & others like you based on hair you cannot help, ostracizing, cutting, relaxing, burning your scalp, getting sores, boils, and being told to take it not to mention being made to feel inferior just because of the way your hair grows out of your head. Being told that the only thing that makes you pretty is your straight hair, being made to fit into a beauty ideal that is the antithesis of who you are as a person and a woman

You will never be denied for a job because of your hair, you will never have the military put specific protocol on your hair. You will never have someone think you’re dirty because of the way your hair grows, never have the silent whispers, the pulling by strangers, made to be exotic, when you just living your goddamn life.  Please miss me with the bullshit.

You are the goddamn prototype in the beauty world and you have the nerve to come to me with the faux victimization shit while little Black girls are being suspended for their hair, harassed, and then told to cut it because it doesn’t fit in the spectrum? Grow the fuck up and realize that everything is not for you, that you aren’t entitled to shit and that being called frizzy franny or whatever the fuck else you were called is a LUXURY, comparatively to the shit Black women have had to endure regarding their hair. So that’s what the fuck you should do, grow the fuck up and look outside of your whiny entitled bullshit, I am not here for it.

Slayed orrrr ? Bahahaha

huffingtonpost:

People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

"The staff didn’t speak English"

"The chair was spicy""The ice was spicy"

"Service was great. Food was great. Couldn’t find parking" - 1 star

'my napkins were only one ply. no free breadsticks”- 1/2 star

"the staff was spicy"

I’m crying from all the spicy comments because this is exactly what happens when I do reviews on Yelp and see other people’s reviews of ethnic restaurants.
