Five annoying questions you should probably refrain from asking Black chicks about their hair.
If I had a dollar for every question I’ve gotten about my hair from non-Black people over the years, I’d be a rich woman!
But look. While I totally understand that Black girls’ hair is a mystery to many, there are just some questions one shouldn’t ask because they are obtuse, easily searchable if you take the initiative to educate yourself a bit on the topic, or wholly inappropriate.
But, I’m all about education, so in an effort to bridge the cultural divide (and have a little fun!) I made a video answering the top 5 burning questions non-Black people always seem to have about Black women’s hair.
So, to all my non-Black folk in the house, please keep an open mind and give it a watch so you can finally avoid getting sideeye from your Black friend when you inquire about her latest hairdo…
Because I live to give and lurve to serve (what?!), what other burning questions do you have about Black people’s hair? I’m all ears!
To my sistas out there, keep on spreading your Black Girl Magic across the globe! This clip might be a good resource to pass along to all your curious (and perhaps misguided) non-Black friends! I’d love to know: how many of these 5 questions have you gotten over the years?
And to everyone: hope you enjoy the dance break– I think humour is a great way to diffuse tension…
