"To be honest I have a lot of questions about my hair, especially now that it's natural . . . . Black hair is unique. It requires different care techniques and routines . . . . in a country where we primarily see commercials for white hair products and magazines that mainly cover white beauty topics and TV shows that mainly feature white characters, we, and those curious about us, have to find information about our hair from other sources."

Knowing what black people have gone through to attain our sense of cultural pride despite every attempt to take our pride away makes movements like this seem like a slap in the face and a step back. But, bridging cultural gaps and explaining cultural differences may be the only way to make America a better place. So, what do you think?
