I have to say that this movie disturbed me.
I have known all my Black life that Black women get weaves. I was raised by Black women and I have been married to a Black woman for the past 12 years.
And I have to say that I have no problem with the weave; well at least I didn't have a problem with the weave.
But after watching this movie, I have a few concerns.
I would also like to know why Black people have accepted that our natural beauty is not beautiful.
There is a scene in the movie where Chris Rock is talking with 4 Beautiful Black women and they were talking about Afros or natural hair styles in the Professional world. All of them; except the chick with the Afro, all said that they would not hire any Black person with a natural style because it did not look professional and that they would not take that person serious.
That's what's hot now?
And Mr. Rock interviewed some of the hair stylist that are in every strip mall in every Black neighborhood in America, and come to find out that some of our sisters are paying as much as $1000 dollars for a month's worth of hair.
And another part of the movie that bothered me was Chris Rock being Chris Rock; went around and collected some "BLACK hair" and went to the hair "brokers" to see if there was a market for "Black" hair, and guess what?
So to cut this short, Black women are paying as much as $1000 a month to glue or sew an Indian person's hair onto their head; They have been brainwashed into believing that European
Like I said earlier I have no problem with Black women that wear weaves. Weaves can look really good on a woman if they are done right.
But this shit right here?
I am totally against this shit.
Not only do they have to face the bullshit of trying to work and live in a White dominated world, they have to come home and put up with the bullshit that we Black men put them through on a daily basis.
And to top it all off, they have been brainwashed into believing that they are not beautiful, desirable or capable of being more than "welfare" queens if they choose to be who God made them to be.
This is that bullshit.
"Why are you doing this", is what I am going to be asking myself.
