...nialism, how can it be stolen? Black women are straightening their hair, and bleaching their skin to look white because the world constantly emphasis that white is better and has done so for years. It's not a new thing. Google top ten most beautiful women on earth or even most beautiful African first ladies. You can count the Afros, cornrows and black skin on one hand. Try to imagine waking up everyday as a black woman, where you are biologically incapable of coming close to the worlds beauty standards...if I woke up in the morning with my natural hair and walked out on the street people would think I was a hippie artist or homeless...because professionalism, cleanliness, and beauty are all related to soft shiny wavy hair, qualities that natural black hair though beautiful in it's own way does not possess.
