    Why? Because white bread society has dictated what is or is not allowed or should be in a professional setting?

    Also it really bugs me when little black girls feel they must have straight hair to be pretty. We can think racism and the media mags for this. The hate war inside the black community over "good" and "bad" hair annoys me too

    Who are these little black girls who feel like this because i have never met one.
    Straight hair = easy to manage. Curly hair is a bitch to keep under control.

    I like my gray. It's kind of a yellow color so I've been leaving it alone. My mom went gray yellow to yellow to white. I'm hoping that I'm going to do the same thing.

    I had an aunt with the most magnificent head of white hair and it was down to her butt. She wore it in a bun a lot but whenever she'd visit we'd take it down and brush it. I thought it was lovely.

    As far as the black hairstyle goes, I like it all. Afro, braids, straight, whatever. The only time I do a double take on anyone's hair is if they have a mohawk or when it's blue or green. Oh yeah, I don't really care for the two tone--blond on top and dark underneath.


    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

I know many people who have 'afros' and work in very professional environments however to me they simply don't look 'clean'. But it's not a race thing. It's just my own perception of what looks good in a professional working environment and what doesn't.
    an afro equals "less refined"? really? i don't get that.

    Pretty and professional are two different things, did I defend forcing kids to have certain hair?

    I wouldnt want Mohawks, paysas, wierd color hair, Sikh head gear in a professional setting either.

    When I grew up most black people (and for awhile white people too ) had afros. To me, it's a natural look.....

    It does. If the most you do to your hair every morning is grab a pick and start combing it out it's safe to say you are ghetto as ****.

    Yeah but you're pretty fastidious about your grooming habits. I don't think an afro would ever be acceptable to you because of who you are and the expectations you have for yourself.

    I like afros.
