It is so sad that there still is this concept of “good hair”. Who is the judge of this anyways? Who is saying that straight hair is better than kinks and why do they get a say in why children should go to school or not based on the texture of their hair.
There have been a number of incidents where children have been told that their hair is unacceptable for school. It”s saddening that these school officials have the audacity to tell someone that the way that their hair grows out of their scalp is not worthy.
This filth truly has to stop. These children are not walking around with “wild” hair do”s. They are simply embracing what their hair looks like without chemical alteration.
I am glad I personally have not felt the need to change for anyone. Not school, not work, not any organization. If you don”t like my hair then you basically are saying that you don”t like my blackness. My hair in its natural state is a part of me and I never should have to apologize for it. All this would signal to me is that this is not the right place for me to be at.
Twelve18Media has a beautiful message and I am glad that they made this video.
