i RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE IN MY INBOX ON YOUTUBE NOT TOO LONG AGO…
I have 3 sisters and we are all basically on the same page about how we feel about our hair. Every time I happen to come across your channel and show my sisters “Look she is black with beautiful long hair! They respond saying… “Well she isn’t FULL black” I want to prove to them that you can be fully african american and still have desirable, beautiful, long hair. I assumed you were full black but I wasn’t sure. If you don’t mind, could you let me know your ethnicity so I can prove to my sisters that a fully black woman with beautiful hair can come from a full black scalp. I know this may sound so silly and ignorant but I think it would be helpful to prove a point.
i HAVE GOTTEN THIS QUESTION SOO MANY TIMES SINCE I’VE GONE NATURAL. IS IT BECAUSE I LOOK BIRACIAL? NO. IT’S TOTALLY BECAUSE I HAVE REALLY LONG TEXTURED HAIR. I REALLY DON’T MIND ANSWERING QUESTIONS LIKE THIS BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE JUST DON’T THINK BLACK WOMEN CAN HAVE HAIR LIKE MINE UNLESS ONE OF THIER PARENTS ARE ANOTHER RACE. THE ONLY REASON MOST BLACK WOMEN DON’T HAVE LONG HAIR IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT MANY HAVE CHEMICAL RELAXERS THAT ARE BREAKING OFF THEIR HAIR FASTER THAN IT CAN GROW AND UNHEALTHY HAIR PRACTICES. I HAVE HEARD AND READ MANY NATURALS SAY THAT THEIR HAIR IS TWICE AS LONG AS IT WAS WHEN THEY HAD A RELAXER. BUT TO ANSWER THE QUESTION, BOTH OF MY PARENTS ARE BLACK. SO THAT MEANS I’S BLACK. ALL AFRICAN AMERICANS HAVE MIXING IN THEIR BACKGROUNDS DUE TO SLAVERY, INTERMINGLING WITH NATIVE AMERICANS AND SO ON. THIS IS A BIG PART OF WHY OUR HAIR TEXTURES, SHRINKAGE AND CURL PATTERNS VARY. MORE BLACK WOMEN CAN GROW LONG HAIR. THEY JUST HAVE TO STOP HURTING IT FIRST.
OH AND HERE ARE A FEW PICS OF MY PARENTS AT THEIR 38TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY. THEY BLACK Y’ALL LOL.
MY MADRE AND PADRE! AARON AND DOROTHY EDWARDS. CHECK OUT THE PINK CARPET..THEY SWAGGIN’ ON Y’ALL:P
MY NEPHEW, JEMARI, BREATHING ON THE CAKE. IT’S OKAY, IT’S BABY BREATH.
HAS ANYONE ASKED YOU IF YOU WERE BIRACIAL SINCE YOU’VE BECOME NATURAL?
