So if you think people are interested in touching your hair because they want to know what "bad" hair feels like, how does that make you feel as the object of their negative curiosity? ... That they get to go back and tell their non-black friends all about how "bad" hair feels, because of your hair. ... That they didn't trouble themselves asking your name, or care about who you were underneath that "bad" hair.
