: jewish curls
[I teach in a high school with a high proportion of jewish people. I'd say 8 out of 10 of the jewish girls have their hair "japanese straightened"...I want to shake them and tell them how beautiful their curls are--one day, they'll get the idea, i hope....

I did notice that there were several Jewish women interviewed in Massey's CG book...they all seemed to mention their Jewish identity in relation to their curly hair...and (if I recall) none seemed to really love being curly-haired.
Maybe it's the 'too ethnic' thing many ethnic Whites feel.[/quote]
Super crazy uber thick, ringlets below, flat on top middle eastern hair
