vend-etta said: Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle

why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever

white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…

white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up

white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

Read the ads

"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???

this reminds me of my kindergarten buddy i had at my old grade school who wasn’t allowed to wear her hair naturally because it was “too distracting” according to the principal and i bet they are still up to this shit since i left….

St. Vincent in her recent profile in the Guardian.
I feel exactly the same way, which is why I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of personal and stylistic uniforms and how they allow the everyday person the ability to explore and express themselves without having to complicate or explain who they are. In some ways, they are used as defense mechanisms, as methods of fitting in. In others, they are a method, a system. First comes the order, then comes the madness.
