It's called assimilation. How many times have you seen a natural woman reading the news? Especially a WOC. I'm not talking entertainment or specialized news like business or politics but mainstream news. The answer is probably never. I work in broadcast news and I wear wigs to work. Nobody is frying my hair with relaxers, keratin treatments or a 450 degree flat iron!! My curly coworkers either blowout, flat iron, bkt or relax.
