I'm hoping for something before the fitting.At least the colors change.
And she was never even in a sorority because she went to jr. college but I have to wear a dern pink and green dress.

Check this out. They put "black" hair styles on middle age white women. Some look cute to me. But I have never been in love with finger waves.
Are these Photoshopped? Because um... yeah.

The worst part of that article is the title. Someone needs to explain how the simple act of allowing one's natural hair to grow out of one's skull is automatically a "movement". Come on now. It's nothing more than getting back to basics. So far, the only people I've heard refer to wearing natural hair as some kind of "movement" are the people who oppose it.

Ecstatic to hear you saw so many pro naturals ... My observation matches yours.

My thing is the author claims to get the info from hair stylists but doesn't say who or how many. No stat. no quotes. My boss would never allow me to print an article without attribution. Obviously no standards in this "journalism".

I'll take it off your hands if it's a cute dress and the right size So the other 3 times had you bought the bm dress by the time she called off the engagement?

Ok You've got a deal. No I wasn't in her "weddings" before. She has a thing for losers, abusers, and dead beats who don't pay child support. I don't know this latest dude so fingers crossed.

Lock of Frederick Douglass’ Hair Discovered at Mississippi State University : The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education

This is an old article but way cool to think afro hair was kept all this time as a treasure.


PS. Don't tell Sheryl Underwood. Lol

Srsly I suck with men. I can't read the subtext of the text and even when someone suggests that he might like you, I brush it off like that is such an impossibility. I am so defective and broken as girl. Boooooooooo. This is what happens when u get to 26 and never had a date or boyfriend and no successful encounters when someone tried to approach you. I serve as a cautionary tale.

I guess you can only have so many likes and I reached my limit. Mine reset so I have 15 now. Seems like you should be able to cash them in like reward points for products. I just got a camcorder, a spa pedicure and a yoga set with my credit card points I redeemed. I had enough for a kindle but they were out.

Cox cable has a commercial with great natural hair featured. It has dad with guy who was on Jamie Fox show. His wife has a beautiful puff. And daughters all have puffs. Super cute.

Minding my own business (watching a baker roll his bread and he's making it look d-mn good) and this girl comes up to me and asks me in Chinese to take a pic with her. I took the pic but it threw me way off I forgot about other stuff I wanted to get. People say this common for this to happen and others admit Taiwanese are really interested in you because your black American + your hair.....It still does not make it any less disconcerting. I feel bad but that is the reason why I walk around with headphones on. This is the drawback of living in a small town. They rarely see foreigners, let alone black foreigners and I will get badgered with onslaughts of hellos and people speaking to me in Chinese even though I only understand about 20%, oh and people just snapping pictures secretly and outright of me without my permission. It is exhausting. I hate going into town on the weekends.

That reminds me of my trip to the Philippines with my husband. In this case it has to do with Eurocentric BS. If you have tan or light skin and light eyes (happen to have both), or look stereotypically "American" (like you or I do w/our non-straight hair that contrasts w/Asians), you get constant stares that can feel very intrusive. Since it was monsoon season we stayed indoors a lot of the time, and inside the hospital due to illness in his family, so I didn't have to deal w/a lot of intrusive social encounters or pics the way you've had to in China. Also, I was always part of a group. I can see where it could be harder at times if/when you're alone.

They tend to look up to Americans. Sometimes too much so IMO (very Eurocentric also). They are generally very friendly but I observed that colorism is a huge problem that no one seems to want to look at. All the maids and drivers - all the help - are provincial, w/dark skin. The privileged and powerful are usually Mestizo (including my DH's family). There's this huge divide: dark people wait on everyone else for dirt cheap; leave their families in the outskirts to take care of these other peoples' kids so they can financially support their families, who they rarely see. They often live in tiny bungalows in bunk beds off the main house. A vestige of Spanish rule. Infuriating. All that got in the way of my full enjoyment of the culture, to say the least. Especially once his brothers' maids secretly told me just how unhappy they are. I felt sad and angry and guilty and powerless. My DH's family - sorry to say - thinks it's all quite normal. ... Seems the US is getting better about these types of inequities, but there are still these places where ... it's almost as if time is standing at a full halt. And so you're in this new place you want to fully admire but you also feel like demolishing parts of it because too many folks are accepting things that aren't acceptable.

Yeah colorism exists here between the Taiwanese. But the crazy thing is the guys that I have found drop dead gorgeous are aboriginal Taiwanese men. They are muuuuuucccchhh darker than the other Taiwanese and they also face discrimination because of their heritage. I hate it so much.

Unfortunately colorism exists in most places where there are people of color who have been influenced by the Western world. Asia is probably the worst, especially in those countries where skin colors can range from pale to black. Usually if you grow up a certain way, something has to expose you to the fact that your views are wrong about the "other" in order for you to change the way you think.
