Default White Adoptive Mom's Hair Rant

This is a rant from a white woman who adopted a black child from Africa and is constantly getting unsolicited advice and criticism from black women. I'm glad this mom is standing up for herself. And just because a black child has a black mother doesn't mean the mother knows how to care for her hair. I see black moms slapping relaxers and weave in their young kids' hair. I've seen an infant with a braid extensions and beads. I do think she was a little too broad in saying all black women don't like to see children with afros. I don't know why she engages the critics. I would just tell them "mind your business" and keep it moving.
