What is the obsession with white people and black folks hair? Why do they always feel the need to want to touch it? Or ask if it is “real or fake”. Here’s a newsflash, our hair like our skin feels just like yours.
Blogger Los Angelista is totally against White people touching her hair, she says because, “My black ancestors may have been your ancestors’ property, and had to smile while they got touched in ways they didn’t want to, but I am not YOUR property and never will be so you’d best move your hand away from me.”
One women with natural hair, Tamara Winfrey Harris, tells CNN.com that a total stranger reached for her hair in a restaurant, as she was waiting to be seated at a table.
