Having said that..I think a lot of white women get pressure to straighten as well though. Because straight hair is often thought of as more attactive.

i, personally, once had a friend say to me that she thought it was great that i had the courage to wear my hair the way i did.
unless it is straight, natural hair is just not widely accepted by any race here in the usa.
