I agree. Some people might see it as a race issue, but I'm sure there's plenty of people with straight hair who just think it's the cool thing to do! If it was a race issue, then curls would never have been popular in the 80's! (Unless society is more racist now than it was in the 80's!)Think of all the straight and wavy-haired women who permed their hair in the 80s. Hairstyles come and go.
