"What if hoards of Afrikan women realized that our hair texture makes us unique among all of the women on the Earth? That in days of old, before the oppression of our hair, our paradigm taught us that our tightly twisting coils mirrored the spiraling hair of the dieties. Our hair was compared with the swirling of galaxies, the torrential, whirling, winds of a storm. Our hair is like unto the helical meanderings of DNA - the very essence of life."
The passage above is from my post entitled, I bumped into my old stylist yesterday.
Ah, but alas, Anonymous has an opinion...

"The majority of African American women exhibit masculine traits such as large hands and feet, tougher skin, and a pugnacious attitude. The general facial structure of African American women tends to exhibit an undersized chin and oversized cheeks, that is in stark contrast to women of other races who have fully developed chins and tight cheeks. African Americans also have tough hair which is usually not considered to be attractive in women."
Guilty. I have big feet.
But trade my gorgeous high cheek bones for a 'tight cheeks' and a jutting chin?!?!
