I made a rare journey on a London bus during the morning rush hour and I stood there observing those around me as you do. I saw a group of black girls in their school uniform who I assume were on their way to school.
I couldn’t help but think to myself how did we get to a place where black teenage girls go to school wearing wigs or super long weave disguising their natural hair. How has this become normal at such a young age? Think about it and say it to yourself “black teenage girl wearing a wig to school” it sounds ridiculous but it’s true. Look at what society has done to our young black queens and as parents have we allowed it?
This just makes me feel like I now need to work even harder to ensure my 4 year old daughter will grow up and feel comfortable with her hair.
